Cambodia
Siem Reap (Angkor Wat)
Many tourists know this town by the name of
Angkor Wat rather than Siem Reap. This is where the Agnkor Wat and many
ancient ruins are located. For those who love history and want to see
one of the Seven Wonders of the World, this place is not to be missed.
Here is a 4-day program that we would recommend:
Day 1
The tranquil Siem Reap Town is our base for
visiting the world famous temples of the ancient city Angkor, which was
the capital of the powerful Khmer Empire from 802 AD to 1350 AD. Leave
for Siem Reap Town to the archeological area and visit the most striking
structures. They are the South Gate of Angkor Thom which is famous for
its series of colossal human faces carved in stone, the impressive Bayon
Temple, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephant Terrace, the
Terrace of the Leper King and the architectural masterpiece of Angkor
Wat. Stroll around this massive monument, exploring the many galleries
with columns, libraries, pavilions, courtyards and ponds full of water
reflecting the towering temple.
Day 2
Take a journey to the jungle covered temple of
Ta Prohm, which is an incredible sight. There are enormous fig trees and
gigantic creepers which embrace themselves in the stone foundations of
this structure giving the impression of man's creation being reclaimed
by the powerful forces of nature. Explore the well known Ta Prohm and
some nearby temples, including Banteay Kdei, Sra Srong, Ta Keo,
Thommanon and Chau Say Tevado. They almost belong to the small circuit
according to the archaeologists' division. Then, visit various famous
temples of the grand circuit such as Preah Khan, Kravan, Neak Pean, Krol
Ko, Ta Som, East Mebon and Pre Rup. End the day's tour by walking up
to Phnom Bakheng Hill to admire the spectacular sunset over these
sandstone monuments
Day 3 Siem Reap - Angkor Temples - Banteay Srei
Drive to visit the site beyond the Angkor Complex through the Preah Dark
village to the intricately carved and well preserved Banteay Srei
Temple. We stroll around this beautiful landmark, which was designed to
leave no space undecorated. The roads begin to deteriorate but it is
still fascinating to drive past the rolling mountain scenery towards
Kbal Spean. This interesting site, locally named the river of 1000
Lingars, has been largely reclaimed by the jungle; however it involves a
walk to catch a view over its riverbed carvings. The next stop is
Banteay Samre, which is adorned with striking relief depicting the
scenes of Vishnu and Krishna legends. Also on this day, we have a chance
to explore the ancient Khmer civilization site of Hariharalaya, which
flourished in the late 9th and early 10th centuries. These are the
earliest temples in the Angkor area and are referred to the Rolous
group.
