Day 2 – Siem Reap – Angkor Wat
Morning free at your own leisure. In the afternoon is set aside for a visit to the main temple, Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is one of mankind’s greatest achievements, and the intricate carvings at the temple demonstrate the skill of the Khmer builders. It was constructed in the early 12th century and later mysteriously abandoned by Khmer civilization. Now Angkor Wat is the main reason tourists come to visit Cambodia. Finish the day with an unforgettable sunset on the quiet east side of Angkor Wat. Notice: visiting temples or other religious sites, visitors are advised to follow a dress code consisting of "long trousers or skirt which cover the knees, and covered shoulders". Skirts, small shorts, tank tops, and other items of revealing clothing are not allowed. Overnight at Navutu Dream Resort, Grand Tour room. Meals: B

Day 4 – Preah Vihear
After breakfast at the hotel you will depart early today for Preah Vihear temple. Drive north of Siem Reap town to Anglongveng by road to the Strong hold of Khmer rouge. Visit Pol pot 's houses ( The khmer rouge's Houses), then head to Preah Vihear close to the Cambodia - Thailand border at the Dangrek Mountain range. Preah Vihear is a Khmer ruin dedicated to Hindu and Buddhist deities. Upon arrival it's another 20 km drive to the strategically located temple Preah Vihear. The temple is beautifully situated on top of a mountain. It therefore requires some effort to get there. The last part is by stairs, but once upstairs you are rewarded with a spectacular view. The temple itself is particularly well preserved due to its location. This shrine is particularly special because of its architecture adapted to the natural environment and the religious function of the temple. The quality of the carved stone ornamentation is unique and includes cyclopean masonry suggestive of a pre-Vedic origin. Return afterward to Siem Reap. Overnight at Navutu Dream Resort, Grand Tour room. Meals: B

Day 5 – Ta Prohm, Bakheng & Preah Khan

The magnificent roots of a tree push between the temple's huge stone blocks in a strange embrace. In the afternoon visit Phnom Bakheng pyramid and continue to visit Preah Khan temple with its labyrinth of grey, decaying stone courtyards that are slowly being reclaimed by the jungle. Large kapok trees extend limbs and roots throughout the carved stone work; while raucous parrots screech and monkeys keep watch to complete a surreal picture.
