Welcome to Siem Reap, the ancient capital of the Khmer Empire. Upon your arrival, meet with your local guide and transfer to your hotel for check in. The rest of the day is at your leisure.
Breakfast in hotel. Spend full day exploring the most fabled temples in the Small Circuit of Angkor Archaeological Park.
This morning explore the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII in late 12th century. Angkor Thom is an almost square city surrounded by a stonewall, 8m high and 12 kilometers long, with five entrance gates (two in the east wall). Each gate is carved with four giant faces and is flanked by 54 gods on the left and 54 demons on the right of its causeway.
Continue to the Bayon Temple, the centerpiece of Angkor Thom complex. The structure encompasses 54 towers that are decorated with 216 smiling stone faces. Next proceed to the Baphuon Temple nearby. The 11th century pyramid–style temple was probably among the most impressive of the Angkor temples in its day. Climb steep stairs to the upper terrace of the temple and enjoy great views from there. Follow by a visit to the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King, both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.
Next take a short drive to one of the most picturesque Angkor temples, Ta Prohm. Built in the mid 12th to early 13th centuries during the reign of Jayavarman VII, Ta Prohm is unique in that it remains largely overgrown by jungle.
After lunch, have a short break before heading to the magnificent Angkor Wat, the world’s largest religious monument. The architectural masterpiece was built in the 12th century, took 30 years to complete and represents the Khmer civilization at it grandest. Crowned by five towers, with elaborate bas-reliefs and a profusion of statues, Angkor Wat is enthralling. The temple is the national symbol of Cambodia and proudly appears on the country’s flag.
End this day with magnificent sunset view from the top of the Pre Rup temple.
Overnight in Siem Reap.
After breakfast, drive past expansive rice fields and through local villages to the Tonlé Sap Lake. Take a relaxing boat trip along a canal that lead to the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. Visit a floating fishing village and observe the vibrant daily life of the locals.
Our last visit today is the Angkor Silk Farm, where you can witness the entire process of silk creation from the breeding process and life cycle of the silkworm to the spinning of the silk, the dying process and the creation of beautiful silk weavings on wooden hand looms.
Stop for lunch at a local restaurant then transfer to the airport for your onward flight.
