On day 1 there's going to be a visit to Angkor Thom, a moated walled city just two miles north of Angkor Wat. Get in through the Southern Gate that dates back to the 12th century i.e. the era of the great Khmer empire of Southeast Asia. Next, you'll see the lovely architecture of Bayon Temple - one of the most decorated Khmer temples in Cambodia devoted to Buddhism. See the amazing crafting on towers, the temple's gigantic 200 faces, Terrace of the Leper King, and Terrace of the Elephants.
Following this, head to Neak Pean which is an artificially built island that embodies a Buddhist temple. What makes it special is that the island itself was constructed on a circular island in Jayatataka Baray hundreds of years ago. Before moving ahead on your journey, munch on some yummy local food at a local restaurant. Then visit the Banteay Srei to seek the blessings of the Hindu god Lord Shiva.
Before going back to your place of stay, witness the beauty of Banteay Samre, the temple that formerly featured remarkable internal moats inside the temple complex. Lastly, enter Pre Rup Temple to spectate well-preserved carvings along with a perfectly aligned sunset.
On day 2, get ready to catch a glance of sunrise outside Angkor Wat. After the sunrise view, you'll get inside the temple. Please note that it will be dark so bring a torch along with you. Our expert guide will tell you about Angkor's bas relief carvings, and the architectural success of the Khmer empire on your visit.
You'll have breakfast after coming outside of the temple. Thereafter you will enter Preah Khan Temple protected by fortified walls and a moat. Have a look at the spectacularly crafted garudas - divine eagle of Hindu mythology, temple corridors, and towers.
By this time, there will be lunchtime. We'll escort you to your hotel for lunch. After lunch, enjoy a drive to Ta Nei, a 12th-century Buddhist temple with moss, and attractive sculptures built. At the end of this tour, admire the beauty of the Ta Prohm. Once home to more than 2000 monks, this jungle-shrouded temple is a photogenic site.
