Visit the monumental magnificence of Angkor Thom - last capital of the Khmers, with its Elephant Terrace,
the Terrace of the Leper King and the stunning Bayon temple. This 12th century masterpiece lies at the
very centre of Angkor Thom and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior gallery
walls have extensive bas-reliefs but the highlight is the “faces”, more than 200 of them, silent but with
the famous half-smile playing on their lips. PJ de Beerski wrote of them; “godliness in the majesty and the
size, mystery in the expression.”
Continue your exploration of the Angkor Temples at Ta Prohm, the temple that has been left largely in its
natural state since its “re-discovery” by French explorers. Surrounded by jungle, its labyrinth of stone
hallways is overgrown with the roots and limbs of massive banyan trees, which envelop the stone like
tentacles. It is one of the largest temples at Angkor, dedicated in 1186. Historians have noted its
Lunch at a local restaurant.
Visit of Angkor Wat temple, the largest temple in the world, with a volume of stone equaling that of the
Cheops pyramid in Egypt. It is unlike all the other Khmer temples in that it faces west, and is inspired by
12th Century Hinduism. Its symmetrical towers are stylized on the modern Cambodian flag. Conceived by
Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat took an estimated 30 years to build. It is generally believed to have been a
funeral temple for the king. It has been occupied continuously by Buddhist monks and is well preserved.
Intricate bas-reliefs surround Angkor Wat on four sides. Each tells a story. The most celebrated of these
is the Churning of the Ocean of Milk, which is located on the east wing. In it the Naga serpent, is
twisted by demons and gods to spurt out the elixir of life.
Note: During the visit of the Bakan tower of Angkor Wat temple, visitors are required to wear a proper
attire, covering shoulders and knees as this temple is still considered as a sacred site (no short,
miniskirt or short trousers). Children under twelve years old are not allowed to climb up this tower.
