Day 15


As usual, breakfast at the hotel. Begin the day with a tour of some different Angkor temples, exploring the Small Circuit via local ‘remork’ (similar to the Thai tuk tuk). The most illustrious of these temples is the 12th-century Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is unique in the fact that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. It is by far one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples. The visit will also include Banteay Kdei, a Buddhist monastery from the late 12th Century, and Srah Srang, also known as the “pool of ablutions”. Lunch and rest at a different restaurant in town around noon. In the afternoon, set out to visit the legendary Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat was constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing Mount Meru, the home of the gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings, bas-reliefs, and over 2,000 Aspara dancers. Construction of this national icon (found on the Cambodian flag) is thought to have taken around thirty years of intensive labor to complete. As this is the last evening in Cambodia for you, a Khmer farewell dinner accompanied by traditional Apsara dance will be an experience to remember. Overnight in Siem Reap.
