We'll take a quick trip from the hotel to Wat Thmey, a local pagoda that recalls the Khmer Rouge regime. Besides being a beautiful piece of local architecture, this complex includes a small shrine where travelers can learn more about Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. After this short visit, continue to 12th-century Angkor Thom Complex.
Just before the impressive South Gate, make a left turn and drive into the forest. A pleasant surprise awaits along the moat of Angkor Thom where you will be served a glass of Champagne. Board a gondola and cruise along the canal, enjoying the beautiful tranquil scenery along the banks, bringing yourself back to the 12th century when the glory of the Khmer Empire was at its peak, listening to traditional Khmer songs sung by the Cambodian oarsmen who slowly & gently drive your boat towards the canal confluence -- a perfect vantage point to watch the sunset ( if weather permits ) and where Prasat Chhrung (the Corner Temple) is clearly visible.
Wine and canapes are served while watching sunset over the West Baray in the distance. Return to the pier and transfer back to town where you will enjoy dinner at the local restaurant before returning to the hotel. This tour is a perfect way to enhance your Angkor Wat visit.
