After breakfast at the hotel, we will ride to the Angkor Archaeological park. Today we visit the walled city of Angkor Thom -the world's most populous city at its prime- with the enigmatic Bayon as its centre piece. Continue on to visit the root entwined Ta Prohm. Strangler figs wrap around the structure and down the galleries giving the temple a real jungle temple feel. In the afternoon, we explore the most famous of the Angkorian temples and the largest religious complex in the world, Angkor Wat. The colossal three-tiered structure is crowned by five lotus-like towers reaching 65 meters toward the sky. The centrepiece of any visit to the temples of Cambodia, Angkor Wat offers many iconic sights for amazing pictures. This evening enjoy a special treat with a performance from Phare, The Cambodian Circus. This non-profit has long been famous for their brilliantly energetic and often humorous performances of traditional and modern folk lore tales. Performers are all disadvantaged youths who were trained by the organisation to become performance artists and is a regular at international circus conventions worldwide.
Please note: Appropriate attire when visiting temples is long pants (covering the knee) and shirts that cover shoulders. Skirts, small shorts, tank tops, and other items of revealing clothing are not permitted within temple grounds. Visitors can and are frequently turned away from temples when wearing revealing clothing. Additionally, we highly recommend early starts to beat the crowds at the temple complexes.
