Anantara Angkor Resort has introduced a new walking tour called ‘Breakfast at Angkor’, which takes visitors through the ancient temples surrounding Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The ‘Breakfast at Angkor’ tour is led by veteran guides, and provides special access to the surrounding UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Angkor Archeological Park, as well as Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayan temples.
Beginning at 4:30 a.m., the hotel transports guests by private car or tuk-tuk from Siem Reap’s Anantara Angkor to a temple complex which houses about 154 square miles of history and relics from the Khmer Empire. Led only by flashlight, guests are then escorted through the temple compound through a special shortcut, avoiding the crowds.
After sunrise, the tour takes visitors to some of the more secluded temples around Angkor Wat, where a personal butler serves juice, coffee or tea, tropical fruits and freshly baked pastries. During breakfast, guides further educate visitors on daily life in Siem Reap, including the history of Angkor and nearby Tonle Sap Lake where the local people live in a a floating village and fish the mangrove waterways.
In addition, because the ‘Breakfast At Angkor’ program includes an all-day pass, guests are also able to explore more temple ruins before returning to the resort later in the day.
‘Breakfast At Angkor’ tours include an English speaking guide, breakfast, a one-day ticket to the Angkor Archaeological Park and transport to and from the site. Rates start at $115 for one guest and $135 for two.
