DAY 2: SIEM REAP – ANGKOR WAT (B/L/D)

 

 Enjoy your first complementary breackfast in the lush surroundings of your hotel for

Today, your visit starts at ancient capital of Angkor Thom, built in the 12th century: the South Gate with its huge statues depicting Apsara dancers performing the churning of the ocean of milk, then on to the Bayon Temple, unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara, the Phimeanakas, the Royal Enclosure, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King.

After a short rest, you will visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor:

 Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag. This masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat’s five towers symbolize Meru’s five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond.

 Take a relaxing stopover at Prasat Chrung visiting Tadev Hole and temple where you can see through the eyes of ancients and watch the best sunset you probably ever see

 After this last stop of the day you will be returned to the hotel.

DAY 3: SIEM REAP – CITY TOUR (B/L/D)

 

Morning time, after breakfast in hotel restaurant, starting of tours to exploring to Banteay Srei temple (10th century), regarded as the jewel in the crown of Classical Khmer Art, and then visit Prasat Kravan with its unique brick sculptures and Ta Prohm. One of the area's most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Its appeal lies in the fact that, unlike the other monuments of Angkor, it was abandoned and swallowed by the jungle, looking very much the ways most of the Angkor temples appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. Visit as well Takeo, Chau Say Tevoda and Thommanon.

Afternoon time, continuous our exploring to visit Preah Khan temple, built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulders-hanging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Continue your visits to Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool and representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake and visit the temple of Ta Som as well as Srah Srang ("The Royal Baths"), undoubtedly used in the past for ritual bathing.
