The Lara Croft Experience
Phnom Bakeng – Bayon – Ta Prohm – Angkor Wat
Do you want to feel like Lara Croft and re-make some of the scenes in Tomb Raider? Then this is your tour! Follow Lara Croft's steps and visit the temples how they appear in the movie. The first stop will take you to Phnom Bakeng, a mountain temple from where you can see a beautiful view of Angkor Wat. You can climb to Phnom Bakeng using the tourist paths or you can choose to ride elephants, which is less tiring and much more exciting! Afterwards we will visit the beautiful temple of Bayon, with its 54 towers bearing the enigmatic smiling faces of king Jayavarman VII. After strolling around the temple we will continue our trip to Ta Prohm, the most spectacular temple of all, entwined with enormous trees, where Croft encounters the mysterious girl. To end our visit, we will go to the grand temple of Angkor Wat, where you can explore at your own leisure and perhaps stay to contemplate the sunset over the five towers of the temple.
And of course, no Lara Croft tour would be complete without making a rest stop at The Red Piano, the place where the filming crew relaxed after a tough day's work!
