Explore Angkor’s Ancient Temples
The vast area of the Angkor Thom ruins, over a mile on one side, contains many stone temples and other features to explore. The city has five monumental gates (one in each wall plus an extra in the eastern wall), 20 meters high and decorated with stone elephant trunks and the king’s favorite motif: the four faces of Avalokiteshvara. The Bayon Temple (circa 1190) is a Buddhist temple but retains elements of Hindu cosmology and imagery. Standing in the exact center of the walled city, it represents the intersection of heaven and earth. It is known for its enigmatic smiling faces of Avalokiteshvara and its extraordinary bas-reliefs.
Then walk through the mystical jungle clad temple of Ta Prohm, overgrown from the jungle and offering a magical Instagram-moment.
Enjoy a break for lunch at a restaurant set in a garden setting close to the temples. Then continue to visit Angkor Wat, the jewel in the crown of Angkor. Angkor Wat is the best-preserved example of Khmer architecture in Cambodia and is so grand in design that some rank it among the seven wonders of the world. It appears on the Cambodian national flag, a very rare instance of a flag incorporating an image of a building. The “lost city” of Angkor first attracted the interest of Europeans in the 1800s after Cambodia was colonized by the French. Transfer back to your hotel around 5pm.
The evening is yours at leisure, enjoy Pub Street and the night markets if you wish.
Enjoy a free morning before your included transfer to Siem Reap International Airport for your departure flight.
