Day 2 : cambodia
After a scrumptious breakfast at the hotel, get ready for a sightseeing tour of Siem Reap that will let you witness the architectural wonders of Cambodia.
Kickstart your tour with a visit to the crown jewel of Khmer architecture, the Angkor Wat. It is a national symbol and the highlight of any trip to Cambodia. The largest, best preserved, and most religiously significant of the Angkor temples, enchants the visitors both by its sheer scale and beautifully proportioned layout as well as the delicate artistry of its carvings. To approach the temple, first cross the vast moat, continuing along a broad causeway lined with naga balustrades. As you enter the main building, ascend through a series of galleries and courtyard before reaching the central sanctuary, which offers beautiful views back over the causeway and across the surrounding countryside.
Later, visit the Ta Prohm Temple, and Angkor Thom that covers an area of 10 square kilometers. Enclosed by a wall and wide moats, the city of Angkor includes many popular sights such as Terrace of the Elephants and Leper Kings. Proceed forward to visit the ruined Baphuon, Royal Enclosure, and Phimeanakas before continuing to the mysterious Bayon Temple.
After exploring the Bayon Temple, head back to the hotel for an overnight stay in Siem Reap.
