Visit Angkor Wat- modern wonders of the world

Tour Code: REP2D004

Introduction

  • Visit Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Artisans d’Angkor, Preah Kahn Temple, NeakPean, Ta Prohm & Srah Srang

Day 1: Full day tour Angkor Wat [-L-D]


Start the day with a transfer to Angkor Wat, one of the modern wonders of the world. Be amazed by the sheer size of the temple and learn how the Khmer Empire prospered between the 9th and 13th centuries, around the time when Angkor Wat was built. Stroll through the intricately carved hallways that show hundreds of fine carvings and discover small shrines still in use today by the local people. Head back to Siem Reap to rest and to enjoy lunch on your own before continuing to Angkor Thom, the ancient royal city of Khmer Empire with its centre piece; the Bayon temple. As you approach, you will notice the enigmatic faces of former King Jayavarman VII looking into every direction. Your guide will take you to the Terrace of the Elephants, which served as a platform from where the King could welcome back his victorious army and the Terrace of the Leper King, which holds detailed carvings winding along a narrow passage way that leads to the Baphuon complex. In the late afternoon, visit Artisans d’Angkor, an organization focusing on training unschooled rural youth in traditional handicraft skills. Ancient techniques are still practiced here such as wood and stone carving, lacquering, gilding and silk painting. Bid farewell to the artisans and return to your hotel.

Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 2: Full day tour the Grand Circuit [B-L-]


Start the day with a transfer to Preah Kahn Temple. This massive temple is located on the Grand Circuit and is generally not as crowded as others in the Angkor complex so you should have this magnificent structure to appreciate in relative peace. Built in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII, it is said that it once housed over 100.000 officials and servants. Continue to NeakPean, an artificial island with a Buddhist temple on it. It is believed it functioned as a hospital during King Jayavarman VII’s reign. Head back to Siem Reap to rest and to enjoy lunch on your own until you transfer in the mid afternoon to Ta Prohm. This beautiful temple is one of Angkor’s jewels and is overgrown with fig trees, giving a haunting yet exotic atmosphere. The magnificent roots of the trees have merged over the centuries with the temple’s huge stone blocks, emphasizing a ‘forgotten city’ feeling. You will finish the day with a visit to Sras Srang, which is the former Royal bathing pool of the Khmer Kings and is now a body of water that measures 700 by 350 meters. Enjoy the sunset from the west terrace and return to Siem Reap for a free evening.
