After breakfast at the hotel, the tour will begin with a sightseeing tour of the famous Angkor Wat. This is a national symbol and the highlight of any visit to Cambodia. Khmer architecture, the largest, most well-preserved, and the most religiously significant of all of the Angkor Temples. Angkor Wat visitors both by its scale and beautifully proportioned layout, as well as the delicate artistry of its intricate carvings. As you enter the main building, ascend through a series of galleries and courtyard before reaching the central sanctuary, which offers beautiful views. On the way, stop to enjoy the carvings that adorn nearly every surface, with some 1,700 Apsaras (celestial dancers) sculpted into the walls. Along the outer gallery walls runs the longest continuous bas-relief in the world! This bas-relief narrates stories from Hindu mythology, including the famous story of the Churning of the Sea of Milk.
Your tour guide will then take you about one kilometer east of Angkor Thom to Ta Prohm Temple (originally called Rajavihara). The monument is admired because much of the jungle has not been cleared, or rebuilt, and it looks as the monuments would have appeared when the European explorers first discovered them (almost frozen in time). It was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university.
Banteay Srei Temple was constructed in pink sandstone, the walls are covered in exquisitely preserved carvings. Because of its small size, it produces a 'fairy-like' atmosphere. Banteay Srei Temple is an exemplary example of Khmer sculpture. After the day of touring various temples, the guide will then take you back to the hotel.
