Overview

Get away from the crowds at Angkor Wat on a full-day tour to two Khmer temples outside of Siem Reap. The Beng Mealea and Koh Ker temples are located in the Cambodian countryside within a 2-hour drive of Siem Reap. You'll also pass small villages and pristine jungle en route for a close look at daily life in rural Cambodia. Includes a picnic lunch, guide, and round-trip transport from Siem Reap.

  • Full-day tour to Beng Mealea and Koh Ker temples, from Siem Reap
  • Go off the beaten track to see Khmer temples without the crowds
  • Learn about the Angkor kingdom while viewing temple ruins from the 10th and 11th centuries
  • Walk safely around the jungle-clad sites with your guide
  • Have a picnic lunch near the temples
  • Includes hotel pickup and drop-off from Siem Reap
After morning pickup at your hotel in Siem Reap, travel through the countryside by air-conditioned van for about one hour to reach Beng Mealea temple.

Built in early 11th Century by Suryavarman II, Beng Mealea is a large temple with wide galleries that resemble those of Angkor Wat. The jungle once engulfed the temple buildings, but has been cut back to allow for a good view of the elegant structures and sculptures.

Next, stop at Koh Ker Temple which dates to 928 AD – 944 AD. Explore the grounds of Prasat Thom, an imposing 7-tiered pyramid and temple complex that was home to Jayavarman IV, who ascended the throne in 928.

At both temple sites, your guide shares the history and architecture of the complex, along with details about the ancient Khmer kingdom. Walk around the large stone monuments and thick jungle, following your guide around each site to see the magnificent structures up close. 

During the drive, take in the scenery of remote villages and dense jungle. Your tour includes a picnic lunch, and round-trip transport from Siem Reap.
