    Visit Outlying Remote Temples

07.00 AM: After breakfast, we will drive to the rural outskirt 35km from Angkor area to visit the smallest, but magnificent, Banteay Srei built in the 10th Century and dedicated to Shiva. The temple was the birthplace of Khmer classical style architecture and the bas-relief work is the best example of Khmer classical art remaining. The pink sandstone structure bears a series of striking and beautiful sculptures, lintels, pediments and friezes. Khmers say the temple must have been carved by women for the details are too fine for the hands of a man. Continue to the ancient Khmer civilization site of Hariharalaya which flourished in the late 9th and earlier 10th centuries. These are the earliest temples in the Angkor area and are referred to the Rolous group we visit the main one called Bakhong templeLunch is hosted at the local family, a great chance to chat with the survivor former village chief during Khmer Rouge regime.

Diving deep into ancient ruins in Outlying Highlighted Temples

Located in the outskirt from Angkor Complex (Siem Reap), the outlying temples is delightfully secluded: a 35km ride to the rural area. In spite of the modest size, the outlying temples will amuse those wanders by the impressive details and fantastic carvings and ancient ruins from Hindu mythology, including the widely known Banteay Srei, Hariharalaya, Bakhong Temple. A must see sightseeings for all tourists.

    Explore the Angkor Templex

05.30 AM: In early morning, transfer to enjoy sunrise in front of Angkor Temple and then come back to hotel for breakfast

08.00 AM: After breakfast, transfer to visit the picturesque Ta Prohm that had nearly disappeared into the jungle and remains overgrown, an oddly haunting and exotic scene. The magnificent roots of a tree, pushing between the huge stone blocks of the temple in a sort of embrace, evoke feelings that you may remember forever.

And continue exploring the mysterious Royal City Angkor Thom City & Bayon. Its 54-tower temple is an awesome sight. At first glance it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are engulfed by the silent, heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes, staring out from a primitive and remote time. Further, visit to the surroundings of the complex including the Baphoun, Elephant Terraces, Leper King Terrace and Royal Enclosure area and visit one more ruin in Angkor Area of Preah Khan temple, built in 12th century by King Jayavarman VII and it is the same style to Ta Prom Temple.

After lunch at a local restaurant, we visit the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat – one of the world’s most impressive ruins. The temple still owns fine Apsara carvings in Angkorian era art.

Splendor Trip to Religious Angkor Wat

Regarded as the largest religious structure in the world, Angkor Wat (Siem Reap, Cambodia) steals travelers’ heart by the astonishing vast and amazing landscape. A wonderful experience to watch the mesmerizing sunrise and to explore the site needs tackling whilst you visit Siem Reap. Don’t forget to take water, hat, sunscreen and proper attire to maintain your energetic exploration.
