Schedule

Day 1
Arrive in Arrival in Siem Reap by flight

When you arrive in Siem Reap International Airport, I will be holding up your name on signboard waiting for you. Then you will be transferred to hotel for check in at hotel. Then, you will be transferred to visit Tonle Sap lake, floating village that we call Chong Kneas. We take boat to see the real lifestyle of three community like Cambodia, Cham and Vietnam and then return back to Siem Reap town on the way back stopover to visit Les Artisan D’Angkor, fine art School, place for workshop wood and stone carving, Lacquering, silver plated and silk painting and old market area. Overnight stay.

Day 2
Arrive in Temple Visit of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Taprohm

After breakfast at hotel, you are going to visit South Gate of Angkor Thom. On the left side of the moat, 54 'devas' (guardian gods) pull the head of the snake 'Shesha' while on the right side 54 'asuras' (demon gods) pull the snake's tail in the opposite direction. Bayon temple, over 200 large faces carved on the 54 tower give this temple its majestic character and the bas-reliefs contain genre scenes of everyday life-markets, fishing, festivals with cockfights and jugglers and so on-and history scenes with battles and processions. Baphoun, built in middle of the 11th century (1060) by king Udayadityavarman II,  dedicated to Siva (Hindu), Phimean Akas, built in late tenth century-beginning of the 11th century by King Jayavamen V and Udayadityavarman I and dedicated to Hindu, Terrace of the Elephants, Terrace of the Leper King. Then, visit the temple of  Taprom ( The Ancestor Brahma, Jungle Temple ), shrouded in dense jungle. The temple of Ta Prohm is ethereal in aspect and conjures up a romantic aura. Fig, banyan and kapok trees spread their gigantic roots over stones, probing walls and terraces apart, as their branches and leaves intertwine to form a roof over the structures. Trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars. Lunch break.

After lunch, you keep going to visit Angkor Wat, first a Hindu, then subsequently a Buddhist, temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world. The temple was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century inYasodharapura,( present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum. Breaking from the Shaivism tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag.

Back to hotel & Overnight at hotel.

Day 3
Arrive in Banteay Srey- Preh Khan

After breakfast, you will be transferred to Banteay Srey, well known for its beautiful delicate carvings  in warm pink sandstone. This late 10th century structure is fairly compact and very different from other Angkorian temples. To round off your day you may also visit Banteay Samre – a larger temple which is often overlooked by tourists and looks gorgeous. Back to join lunch at a local restaurant. After that, you continue to visit Neak Porn Temple, a small island temple located in the middle of the last baray ( the Preah khan Baray or Jayatataka ) to be constructed by a khmer king in the Angkor area. The central temple sits at the axis of a cross or lotus pattern of eight pools. Next, visit Preah Khan Temple is a huge, highly explorable monastic complex. It originally served as Buddhist monastery and school, engaging over 1000 monks. Travelling back to Siem Reap you will pass through picturesque villages and may wish to stop for rural photo opportunities along the way.
