This short, yet very romantic excursion will start at 4:30pm, where we will pick you up from your hotel in Siem Reap, accompanied by an English speaking guide. A short drive will bring you to the embarkation point at Prasat Chrung for boarding your own gondola. Khmer people have been known as skilled boat makers throughout history and a number of various boats, including the boats used by navy in a war to win a victory cover Cham in the reign of King Jayavarman VII. Twenty nine of the ancient boat sculptures in Bayon temple are seen, demonstrating the courage of navy in the King Jayavarman VII’s period. The archaeologists illustrate that the ancient Khmer boats and Cham boats carved in the wall of Bayon temple are the victory of the King Jayavarman VII’s navy force over Cham’s navy in the war after 1177 A.D. One of these types of boats has been carefully constructed to resemble the fine art work done in the past Known as a ‘Kongkear Angkor’, this gondola is a unique Khmer tradition boat service in Siem Reap. You will travel over the holy waterway where history, nature and culture come alive. You will enjoy and view the past and photograph along the great all of Angkor Thom, Royal Secret Path and City Guard Post. En route, you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy your onboard served champagne and canapés while the temple ruins of Angkor and the lush nature pass by. You may also see the beautiful sunset at Prasat Chrung temple before returning back to your hotel at around 5:30pm.
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
We were collected at our hotel and taken to the gondola by a guide who accompanied us for the ride explaining some of the history of the location and of course of the moat around Angkor Thom. It was raining the day we went and they made sure we were dry and comfortable while we waited for the rain to abate. The moat was still and beautiful, and the colours of the red dirt and greenery were spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our gondola ride and would recommend it to anyone visiting Siem Reap.British Indian Ocean Territory - 1 year ago
