DAY 2 Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom & Ta Prohm
This morning, we visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. This architectural masterpiece was constructed in the 12th century and covers an area of about 210 hectares. We will enjoy exploring the many galleries with columns, libraries, pavilions, courtyards and ponds full of water reflecting the towering temple. Intricately carved bas-reliefs extend the length of the outer walls and corridors, depicting mythological scenes and day-to-day life at the time of Angkor's construction.
In the afternoon, we visit the ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century). See the South Gate with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk, Bayon Temple, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. and Ta Prohm - a favorite amongst visitors because it has become part of the jungle.
DAY 3 Sunrise from Phnom Bakheng, Banteay Srei & Tonle Sap
An early Morning special: Early transfer to the archaeological site for sunrise from Phnom Bakheng, one of two hills dominating the plain of Angkor, from where you will have a spectacular view of the Western Baray and Angkor Wat. We return to the Hotel for Breakfast
Later in the Morning, we will drive beyond the main Angkor complex to visit another favorite temple amongst visitors – the enchanting Banteay Srei. It appears that the temple was designed to leave no space undecorated, and the fine carvings in pink sandstone are quite unique.
In the afternoon, we will take a break from visiting temples and enjoy a boat ride, in a traditional wooden boat, on the Tonle Sap. This is the largest permanent fresh-water lake in South East Asia and flows into Tonle Sap River, joining the Mekong in Phnom Penh.
