Angkor is often busy and is rapidly growing in popularity.

We can plan your itinerary around the temples in any way you wish, in order of their age, perhaps, as they track the Khmer Empire’s history, or, for photographers, following the sun to ensure that each are at their most photogenic.

Local guides knowledge for avoiding the crowds

However, most people’s main concern is simply to avoid the growing number of coach parties! Therefore, we take full advantage of our local guides' experience, as they know which temples to avoid on given days and times, thus creating the best opportunities for you to experience the world’s largest religious monument in relative peace and quiet. You are always free to revisit your personal favorite sites, and our guides have the in-depth knowledge to allow a full appreciation of these ancient temples’ colorful history.

Helicopter flights

A new way to beat the crowds is to see the temples by helicopter: flights of various durations can be tailored depending how long you wish to be in the air and how many temples you wish to see.
