Overnight in Siem Reap

In the afternoon, begins your visit to Angkor Wat and watch the twilight on natural hill of Phnom Bakeng. Angkor Wat is one of the modern seventh wonders of the world, the largest Hindu temple of the universe and the well preserved among the monuments in Angkor group.  The magnificent Angkor Wat Temple was built in the reign of king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. It is an artificial temple mountain symbolizing the mount Meru, home of the gods. Considered as the masterpiece of the Khmer architecture, this Hindu temple is used for King’s funerary temple that is why the temple is oriented to the west.
Inside the temple galleries are decorated by delicate carvings and bas-reliefs depicting about Hindu mythology. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag.

Phnom Bakeng, the natural hill with 69 meters highs and there is a five- tiered pyramid temple built in the late 9th Century, this mountain temple is the most popular spot in the area to view the spectacular twilight and city’s landscape especially the five towers of Angkor wat appears from the dense of forest
Overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 3: Siem Reap Temple Tours

After breakfast, depart hotel to visit Angkor Thom City, it was the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. This city is surrounded by fortified volcanic rampart with 8 m highs stretches for 12 kms, each side of city is 3 kilometers long. It draws a perfect square you access this town through 5 gates, 4 of them represent the cardinal points and the 5th one the Victory Gate is leading straight to the Royal Palace areas.
After passing through the south gate, you will go down along this shady road to the
 Bayon 
temple. This temple lies exactly in the center of the city. The particularity of this monument is the 54 towers representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire in the ancient time. Each tower has 4 faces. This is the only temple in Cambodia depicting scenes of the everyday life at the time of the empire.
From the Bayon continue by walk to the
 Baphoun recently re-opened to the public. There you will pass by the Phimeanakas the location of the Royal Palace. The only remaining are a pound and a temple. The palace was made of wood and did not survive the time and the wars. Then continue to the Terrace of the Elephants. This Terrace was the place where the parade was done for the king. Next is the Terrace of the Leper King,
 depicting the water world.

In the afternoon continue visit to temples on the small circuit, 
Kravan temple, Banteay Kdei temple, Srah Srang the royal swimming pool, the pool of ablution, Takeo temple, Thommanom temple, Chaosay Tevoda Temple including Ta Prohm, it
 is one of the most popular temples of the Angkor Complex. This temple was built in the memory of the King Jayavarman VII’s 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. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 4: Siem Reap - Overgrown Temple - Departure
After breakfast, leaving for a couple hours drive passing through rural villages to Boeng Melea Temple, it is the most accessible of Angkor’s lost temples, a mirror image of the mighty Angkor Wat, but totally and utterly consumed by the jungle. Constructed in the reign of King Suryavarman II (ruled 1113-1150), the builder of Angkor Wat, nature has triumphed here, and it’s hard to get a sense of the monument’s shape amid the daunting ruins. Boeung Mealea lies about 70Km from Siem Reap at the foot of Phnom Kulen’s eastern extreme. It takes 2-3 hours to get there via Dam Dek on National Highway 6.

After lunch, we continue our tour to Kampoung Kleang, it is located in the northern lake-edge about 35 kilometers east of Siem Reap town, more remote and fewer tourists than Kampong Pluk. Visitors to Kampong Kleang during the dry season are universally awestruck by the forest of stilted houses rising up to 10 meters in the air. In the wet season the waters rise to within one or two meters of the buildings. Like Kampong Pluk, Kampong Kleang is a permanent community based in fishing and surrounded by flooded forest.

The area can be reached by boat from the Chong kneas docks or by a combination of road to Dom Dek on Route #6 and then boat to the village, the best method depending on the time of year.

Back to Siem Reap late afternoon, enjoy exploring the Siem Reap market or/and seeing the work shop of Artisan D’ Angkor, wood and stone carvings, lacquering and silk paintings till transfer out to the airport for departure flight. End of Services
