In the afternoon, visit the most famous of all the temples on the Angkor plain: 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 symbolizes the ocean beyond. Sunset from Phnom Bakheng. one of two hills dominating the plain of Angkor, from where you will have a spectacular view of the Western Barray (ancient reservoir) and Angkor Wat. ·Dinner Show at Kanell restaurant and accommodation at Sokharoth hotel.

12 JAN 2020 (B/L/D) ·        
Breakfast at hotel
In the morning, you will continue your temple visits, including the unique brick sculptures of Prasat Kravan, the mountain-temple of Pre Rup, Mebon Oriental,Ta Som, Neak Pean (a fountain built in the middle of a pool and representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake). Then visit Preah Khantemple built by King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, the temple of Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and improve this situation.Lunch at local restaurant In the afternoon, visit Srah Srang, “The Royal Baths” which was once used for ritual bathing. Continue temple tour with stops at Takeo, Thommanon, Chau Say Tevoda and Ta Prohm. one of the area’s most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been left 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 swallowed by the jungle and looks very much the same way most of the monuments of Angkor must have appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. ·         Dinner at local restaurant and accommodation at Sokharoth hotel.
