Day 2 : Banteay Srei, Ta Prohm, Tonle Sap (B/-/-)
Early Breakfast and departure around 8h00, with your guide, to Angkor Site for a morning visit of a few temples, starting from the enchanting temple of Banteay Srei. The special charm of this temple lies in its remarkable state of preservation, small size and excellence of decoration. Then, visit Ta Prohm, one of the most beautiful temples, as it has been 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 has been left to be swallowed by the jungle, and looks very much the ways most of the monuments of Angkor appeared when European explorer first stumbled upon them.
After lunch, transfer to the pier of Roluos. Discover the village of Kompong Phluk, one of the beautiful stilted villages, located 16 kilometers from Siem Reap. Visit the village and take a boat trip in a traditional wooden boat on the Tonle Sap Lake, the great Lake of Cambodia, one of the wonders of Asia. Then back for the rest of the day at the hotel.
We may suggest some one of our Secret Tables for dinner.
HOTEL: Heritage Suites (Bungalow Suite) or Anjali By Syphon (Santi Pool Access)
Day 3 : Angkor Wat – Bayon – Elephant Terrace (B/-/-)
After breakfast, we take a tuk tuk to 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. After a lunch on site, visit the South Gate by tuk tuk with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk, the antique capital of Angkor Thom (12th century), the Bayon Temple, unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara, the Royal Enclosure, the Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King and Baphuon Temple.
