Trip Description

One of the world's great architectural achievements, Angkor has tantalized Western travelers since 1858 when Henri Mouhot, a French naturalist, stumbled upon it in the jungle, and it became the 'lost city' of Asia. In recent years, it was 'lost' again, but now the city in all its glory can be seen. A small country of 11 million people that adjoins Thailand's eastern border, Cambodia is beginning to attract tourists primarily to see the magnificent ancient Khmer city at Angor, filled with the temples and palaces built between the 9th and 13th centuries. The most visited structures in this World Heritage Site are Angor Wat, the largest religious monument ever built, the Bayon with its giant faces, the walled city of Angor Thom, Ta Phrom and many other fascinating monuments. The reason why most people come to Cambodia is to see Angkor Wat - one of the seven wonders of the world. In and around Siem Reap are over 30 temples, but the most important are Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple and the Banteay Srey Temples. You should allow at least 2 full days in Siem Reap, so you can have time to see all of the important temples.Others popular destinations for tourists include the capital Phnom Penh and the quiet beach resort of Sihanouville. Flight from Bangkok direct to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for Angor. The system of visas on arrival makes it easy for travelers enter the country.

Itinerary
Day 1

Phnom Penh
Arrival in Phnom Penh
Transfer
Sightseeing in Phnom Penh
Cambodia's capital sits at the confluence of the Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers. Considered the loveliest of the French-built cities of Indochina, it was founded as a small monastery in 1372 by a rich Khmer woman called Penh, after she found four Buddha statues in a tree trunk on the banks of the Mekong. She set up the monastery on a nearby hill – or 'phnom' in Cambodian.
WAT PHNOM: temple and location of the first pagoda built in 1372 by 'Penh' to house the four Buddha statues found on the banks of the Mekong. It is the only hill (27 meters) in the capital.
ROYAL PALACE AND SILVER PAGODA: the royal palace stands on the site of the former citadel, Bantey Kev (built in 1813). Visitors are not allowed to some portions of the grounds, as the palace is the official residence of King Norodom Sihamoni. The silver pagoda is often called the Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Preah Kaeo after the statue housed there. The wooden temple was originally built by King Norodom in 1892 and inside, its floor is comprised of more than 5000 silver blocks which together weigh nearly 6 tons.
NATIONAL MUSEUM: designed by a French archeologist and painter, George Groslier, in Khmer style in 1920 to exhibit works previously scattered throughout the country. It contains a collection of Khmer art including the beautiful 6th century bronze statue of Vishnu.
CENTRAL MARKET: a covered market distinguished by its central dome (built in 1937). It is filled with shops selling jewelry, fabrics and all kinds of souvenirs. A great place for browsing. Overnight in Phnom Penh.

ANGKOR WAT: a temple dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu by King Suryavarman II, who reigned between 1131 and 1150. It was constructed over a period of 30 years and is world famous for its beauty and splendor. Angkor Wat features the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls and narrates stories from Hindu mythology. In 1992 the UNESCO declared the monument and the whole city of Angkor a World Heritage Site.Visit Angkor Thom
ANGKOR THOM: a fortified Royal City (10 square kilometers) built by King Jayavarman VII, who ruled from 1181 to 1201. The city has five monumental gates and is encircled by a moat 100 meters wide. In the center of the walled city are the city's most important monuments including Bayon, Baphuon, the Terrace of Elephants, the Terrace of the Leper King and Phimeanakas with Royal Enclosure.
BAYON: Jayavarman VII's temple mountain that stands at the center of Angkor Thom. It is one of the most popular of Angkor's monuments and a place of narrow corridors, steep flights of stairs and an amazing collection of towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces.
BAPHUON: the pyramid shape represents the mythical Mount Meru and marks the center of the city that was here before Angkor Thom.
PHIMEANAKAS: near the center of what was once the royal palace within Angkor Thom. Phimeanakas means 'Celestial Palace', though today there is not much left to indicate its former splendour.
FORMER ROYAL PALACE: nothing remains today except two pools that were used by royalty for washing.
TERRACE OF ELEPHANTS: this terrace was used for viewing public ceremonies and was a base for the King's grand audience hall. The famous lines of elephants are at either end of the retaining walls.
TERRACE OF THE LEPER KING: North of the Terrace of Elephants is a platform named 'Terrace of the Leper King'. On the platform is a nude statue – one of Angkor's mysteries. Overnight in Siem Reap.
