tour description

Transfer from Siem Reap International Airport or hotel directly to the Angkor temple complex. In the morning, visit the antique capital of Angkor Thom (12th century): See the South Gate (with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk), Bayon temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara), Baphuon (recently re-opened after years of restoration), the Elephants Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King.
Lunch at local restaurant
Visit Ta Prohm. a beautiful jungle temple that has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery.
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 and the 12th century 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.
Transfer back to Siem Reap International Airport or hotel.
