Pick up at 8:00 am by our guide, we will drive 7km to visit south gate of Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom built at the end of the 12th century shortly after the completion of Angkor Wat. It is surrounded by a massive perimeter wall and a moat with five monumental gates and covers an area of more than ten square kilometers, indeed Angkor Thom means 'Great City'. The most important monuments are located in the centre of the city, namely the Bayon, Baphoun and the Terrace of Elephants. The Bayon in particular is a fascinating piece of architecture and one of the most photographed. It is a bizarre structure, with a total of 54 towers elaborately decorated with over 200 enigmatic smiling faces. Than we continueto visit Ta Prohm is the Mahayana Buddhist temple was built on 1186 by the same king who built Angkor Thom Jayavaraman VII for dedicated to Pragna Borometa (king’s mother). Temple is surrounding by 600meter by 800meters wall that made of lava rock and sandstone with the skyline row on top, main impressive of this temple are the Balsa wood trees are standing on the temple roof top and attracting by it’ s charm of the trees and gigantic roots similar to the difference animals and birds. Eat lunch at local restaurant near the temple.


This afternoon we begining again with Angkor wat temple. Angkor Wat was built between 1112 and 1152 by King Suryavarman II and dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation; although some believe it is actually dedicated to the king himself as the temple faces west, representing death. It is the best preserved of all the temples. Its layout and its scale are simply breathtaking: the wall surrounding the enclosure measures 1,000 by 800 meters in length and the moat, said to represent the oceans of the world is 200 meters wide. It is, in all probability, the largest religious monument ever built, covering an area of 81 hectares. The five towers that dominate the scene are said to represent the five peaks of Mount Meru, the mythical home ofthe omnipotent Hindu deity Shiva.
