The sunrise over Angkor is an unique example of the powerful unison of nature and man. The simply beautiful sunrise lets the majestic Angkor Wat gradually emerge from the darkness of the night until it is displayed in full glory. Truly magnificent!
Everything is of course Siem Reap weather permitting, but also when the skies are overcast the dawning of Angkor remains a sight not to be missed.
The Angkor Sunrise Tour is not only special because we guide you to the best spot from where to witness this extraordinary phenomenon – if you are too close you’ll miss the full dimension of the spectacle – but also because the remainder of the tour is especially laid out to avoid the crowds as much as possible. This is achieved by combining the early rise with the individual mobility of our Vespa’s and a keen design of the route. Busses and TukTuks cannot match this experience.
Other highlights of the tour are the famous Bayon and Ta Phrom temples, as well as a visit to rural life in the Angkor setting and other cultural gems that are not to be missed. Being food aficionados we have selected one of the best spots around Angkor where either a local or western breakfast awaits to fulfill you. This tour is exclusive because everything is designed to be as personal and as far away from the crowds as possible.
It is not only special because we try to avoid the crowds, but also because the founder of Vespa Adventures Siem Reap, Ms. Akim, grew up right in Wat Angkor Kang Chuong (Angkor Wat Pagoda), the spiritual heart of Angkor within the walls of Angkor Wat. There Akim was raised by her Grandfather; the last of three generations of Chief Abbots that guided the spiritual life of this entire wondrous Temple City. Your official and professional guide will tell you of Akim’s life as a young girl, and how day-to-day life continued in Angkor Wat after the Khmer Rouge; tales about ever present ghosts, burial stupas, new bicycles and the thread linking Vespa Adventures Siem Reap to her proud Khmer heritage.
When you will return to your hotel around midday there is still whole afternoon ahead of you to relax and recall the unforgettable day that you have just enjoyed and to get ready for a wonderful evening ahead.
