Day 2 Grand Tour Package for 1 person

  1. Preah Khan

Preah Khan is definitely one of the highlights of the Grand Circuit Tour. The walkway leading up to Preah Khan temple is lined by statues that appear to play tug-of-war with a snake; they are actually depicting the churning of the ocean of milk. It is a grand entrance to a very grand temple. As you walk through the central hallway through Preah Khan, it seems to go on and on forever. The carvings are still in very good condition and much of the temple is just a free-for-all to explore. These carvings of women goddesses in dancing poses are known as Apsara.

  1. Neak Pean

The Neak Pean temple sits in the middle of a large man-made body of water. So you can’t enter it or even get very close. But the view of the temple with its reflection on the still water is a beautiful sight. You probably won’t need more than 30 minutes here.

  1. TA SOM

The Neak Pean temple sits in the middle of a large man-made body of water. So you can’t enter it or even get very close. But the view of the temple with its reflection on the still water is a beautiful sight. You probably won’t need more than 30 minutes here.

  1. EAST MEBON

The East Mebon temple is quite similar to the Pre Rup temple (below), only with less stairs and no view. As you enter this temple you’ll pass through a small gate. Many tourists like to stop here as it is an ideal spot to see the temple in all of its glory. But be aware that this causes a bit of a traffic jam.

It won’t take long to see this small temple complex, 20 minutes should be plenty. There are some very nice women across the road selling fruit shakes and ice coffee if you find yourself here in the heat of the day and need some respite.

  1. PRE RUP

You’ll have to climb a set of very steep stairs to reach the top of the Pre Rup temple. The stairs are also very tall so it feels more like climbing a ladder. And with no handrails to speak of, this temple may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues or a fear of heights.

Once at the top, you’ll be rewarded with lovely views of the ruins below. There is one temple at the center, surrounded by four temples in the corners below, all in a similar pagoda style.

  1. SRAH SRANG

Srah Srang is technically part of the Small Circuit tour route, but you’ll also pass it at the end of the Grand Circuit. And you can probably convince your driver to make one last stop. The large man-made lake is a nice place to sit and relax before heading back to Siem Reap

Some people choose to do the Grand Circuit in reverse order to try and avoid crowds at the temples. If this is your strategy, Srah Srang is a great place to watch sunrise away from the crowds of Angkor Wat. You’ll sit on the small stone platform at the west end of the lake and watch the sunrise across the water.
