Wake up early in the morning to visit sunrise at famous Angkor Wat temple. Angkor Wat is the largest temple in the world, with a volume of stone equaling that of the Cheops pyramid in Egypt. Angkor Wat was built in the first half of the 12th century by King Suryavarman indicated to Visnu.
The ingenious plan of Angkor Wat only allows a view of all five towers from certain angles, They are visible from the entrance. Inside the temple there are more than 2000 Apsara dancers decorating the temple making the temple more beauty and unique.
Return to your hotel for breakfast. Note: You can request packed breakfast from hotel if you want to spend longer to visit the temple.
After breakfast, visit to Banteay Srey “also called Citadel of Women”, made of pink sandstone and is one of the smallest temple you can visit but one of the most beautiful as well. Unlike the major sites at Angkor, Banteay Srei was not a royal temple as It was built by Brahmin Priests. Often described in terms as the “Jewel of Khmer Art”, it showcases the most exquisite, deep and complex carvings in all Khmer architecture. On the way back to Siem Reap not far away from Banteay Srei you will stop to visit the temple to Banteay Samre. Situated on the eastern edge of the Angkor complex, this temple is very similar to Angkor Wat. The trip continues through the scenic countryside and rural villages where we can stop for taking picture and chat with the local people to get to know their real lifestyles in the country side.

This morning departs on the special Remork “Tuk Tuk” to visit The Great City of Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, was a fortified city enclosing residences of priest, officials of the palace and military, as well as buildings for administering the kingdom. The city of Angkor Thom consists of a square, each side of which is about three kilometers long a laterite walls 8 meters. Before enter the city, you will first stop first at the South gate and then continue to visit Bayon Temple. The Bayon temple was built nearly 100 years after Angkor Wat. Since it was located at the center of a royal city it seems possible that the Bayon would have originally been a temple-mountain conforming to the symbolism of a microcosm of Mount Meru. After Bayon continue to visit Terrace of Leper King and the Elephant Terrace.
Lunch at Viroth’s Restaurant after lunch return to the hotel for take a rest of the afternoon.
After a short break visit Ta Prohm temple. Ta Prohm temple, like the Preah Khan, was built in the memory of the King Jayavarman VIIâ€Ÿs mother. When found by the French conservators at the end of the 19th century, they deliberately left this temple in the same condition as it was discovered; overgrown by strangler fig and silk-cotton trees, giving the temple a mystical and romantic appeal. This Tom Raider temple is the most popular and photogenic temples because of the unique of the temple which over grown by the big tree and vines structure.
