6 DAYs ANGKOR WAT TEMPLE & PREAH VEAR TEMPLE TOUR 
Private tour (DINA-CAV6)

Daily departure from Siem Reap with English or French speaking guide

ITINERARY:


DAY 1 WED : SIEMREAP ARRIVAL (D)     
  
Arrive at Siem Reap International Airport and transfer to the hotel.
Afternoon visit the Roluos Group. The monuments of Roluos, which served as the capital of Indravarman I (reigned 877-89), are among the earliest large, permanent temples built by the Khmers and mark the beginning of Khmer classical art. Preah Ko erected by Indravarman I in the late 9th century dedicated by the King to his ancestors in 880. Bakong the largest and most interesting of the Roluos group temples, with his active Buddhist monastery just to the north of the east entrance. Lolei built on an islet in the center of a large reservoir (now rice fields) by Yasovarman I, the founder to the first city at Angkor. Dinner at local restaurant. Overnight at the hotel.
 
DAY 2 THU  ANGKOR WAT TEMPLE (B,L,D)                 
Breakfast at hotel.
In the morning, visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat’s five towers symbolize Meru’s five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond.
Visit the South Gate (with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk), the ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century), Bayon Temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara), the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. Sunset at Angkor Wat. Overnight at the hotel.
 
DAY 3 FRI: ANGKOR WAT COMPLEX (B,L,D)  
Morning, transfer to Banteay Srei temple (10th c), regarded as the jewel in the crown of Classical Khmer Art. Continue to Ta Prohm, one of the area’s most beautiful temples. Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Lunch at hotel. In the afternoon, you continue your temple visits to Preah Khan. Built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, the temple of Prea Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool (representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake), Ta Som and Banteay Samre, built in the third quarter of the 12th century. It consists of a central temple with four wings preceded by a hall and accompanied by two libraries, the southern example remarkably well preserved. Two concentric walls enclose the ensemble. Overnight at the hotel.
 
DAY 4 SAT: SIEMREAP - PREAH VIHEAR TEMPLE (B,L,D)
Pick up from the hotel and driver to Preah Vihear province. Your journey will take us to visitd Kokei temple before reaching the destination. You will approximately arrive at the temple at around 2 o’clock, then start your tours at the Temple until the late evening. Preah Vihear Temple is more than 200 km north of Siem Reap on the Cambodian side of the Khmer/Thai border.
It occupies probably the most magnificent site of any Khmer temple and contains some of the most stunning carvings.  Overnight at the motel close to the temple.
