Day 2: Siem Reap
This morning, visit Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world. Conceived by Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat took an estimated 30 years to build. Later visit the monumental magnificence of Angkor Thom, last capital of the Khmers with the 216 ‘faces’ of the Bayon at its heart, silent but with the famous half-smile playing on their lips.

Continue to Banteay Samre temple, built under Suryavarman II and Yasovarman II in the early 12th Century. Finally visit Ta Prohm, left largely in its natural state since its ‘re-discovery’.
