Catch your first view of Angkor Wat when you visit the early temples of the Rolous Group. This is the site of ancient centre of Khmer civilisation known as Hariharalaya. This was the first of its kind and was built by the Angkorian Kings in the 8th and 9th century and consists of three main temples called: Bakong, Lolei and Preah Ko.

Day 6

Siem Reap

Today after breakfast you will make your way to the temples in a tuk tuk. Your first stop will be at Ta Prohm which is unique in the fact that the majority of it has been left untouched. You will see the over grown jungle foliage surround the stone structure. Many parts of the temple are collapsed. This is why this temple was used as the setting to film parts of Tomb Raider. Your visit will also include Banteay Kdei, a Buddhist monastery from the late 12th Century, and Srah Srang, also known as the “pool of ablutions”.

Return to the hotel for a break during the midday heat and grab some lunch.

This afternoon is probably the moment you have been waiting for. You will head to the famous Angkor Wat. Inside the temple, the walls are decorated with beautiful carvings which depict Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II fought during his reign. Its majestic structure is truly breathtaking.

As this is your last evening in Cambodia, a Khmer farewell dinner accompanied by traditional Apsara dance will be an experience to remember.
