DAY 2 SIEM REAP
Today is a day filled with a range of memorable sights and experiences. In the morning, you discover the stunning Banteay Kdey, Pre Rup, Preasat Khleang and the Oriental Mebon temples. The afternoon is devoted to the crowning jewel of Khmer architecture, Angkor Wat, national symbol and highlight of any visit to Cambodia. The 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat impresses visitors both by its sheer scale and beautifully proportioned layout, as well as the delicate artistry of its carvings. Enjoy the intricate stone carvings that adorn nearly every surface, with some 1,700 Apsaras, or celestial dancers, sculpted into the walls. Along the outer gallery walls run the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which narrates stories from Hindu mythology, including the famous churning of the ocean of milk. You witness the magic silhouettes of Angkor Wat in the mid-afternoon and sunset from Mount Bakheng. Two exiting activities can be experienced: an elephant ride* and a balloon flight over the archaeological site*. Overnight in Siem Reap. (b/-/-)
