We started the day to visit the important Angkor Thom. It includes many of the finest temples from the time of King Jayavarman VII, who ruled from 1181 to 1220. At the south gate of Angkor Thom, they will marvel at the 23m high of the stone faces of Avalokiteshvara, which appear in the movie Tomb Raider. These amazing sculptures inspire respect and admiration to all who see them. In the centre of this city is the temple of Bayon, which we will also visit. This temple-mountain, built at the end of the 12th century, is adorned with hundreds of faces of gigantic stones. We will also see the Terrace of the Elephants, the Terrace of the Leper King.

In the afternoon, we begin our exploration of magnificent Angkor Wat, built under Suryavarman II. We’ll have time to photograph the famously eerie silk-cotton tree roots as they slowly envelope the Ta Prohm temple from Jayavarman VII’s reign. Accommodation in Siem Reap
Today visit Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses built within the floodplain of the Tonle Sap about 16 km southeast of Siem Reap. The villages are primarily Khmer and have about 3000 inhabitants between them. Flooded mangrove forest surrounds the area and is home to a variety of wildlife including crab-eating macaques. During the dry season when the lake is low, the buildings in the villages seem to soar atop their 6-meter stilts exposed by the lack of water. In time transfer to airport for your departure flight.
