Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites of the world, stretching over some 400 km2, including the forested area of Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire including the famous Temple of Angkor Wat, the Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom with its countless sculptural decorations, the Taprohm Temple with trees growing out of the ruins, and many other temples, from the 9th to the 15th century. Angkor Wat is not only the most famous temples among the Angkor complex but it is also a good place for bird watching where we usually found 35 species for the day.
The forest inside the temple supports some good bird species especially the migrant birds such as Hainan Blue, Taiga and Asian Brown Flycatchers, Forest Wagtail, White-throated Rock Thrush, Black-capped Kingfisher, Asian Barred Owlet, Black Baza, Alexandrine and Red-breasted Parakeets.
Accommodation is in Siem Reap with variety range from budget, midrange, and luxury. Either booking by your own or with CBGA’s package.
Typically, it is a combined tour of birdwatching and temple. We will spend the whole day visiting some of the great temples such as Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and the Bayon terrace of the Elephant King Taphroms learning about the history, culture, and the stories of the carvings that adorn the walls of these great monuments.
We could spend either one day or two days visiting Angkor Wat complex.
