After breakfast you will start to visit Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, was a fortified city enclosing residences of priest, officials of the palace and military, as well as buildings for administering the ancient kingdom. Next, we travel to visit Bayon temple located at the centre of Angkor Thom City. It is known for the 216 giant mysterious faces carve on the 54 towers, each posing a differing mysterious smile, keeping watch of each compass point. On the walls of the galleries are many bas-reliefs depicting scenes of everyday life, great battles and military processions during Angkor period and Phimean Akas, Elephant and Leper King Terraces. In the afternoon, we continue to visit Taprohm and Angkor Wat. Unlike most of the temples of Angkor, Ta Prohm has been largely left to the clutches of the living jungle. It shows the dynamic interaction between nature and man-made art. Whereas, the legendary Angkor Wat is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking. It is the world largest religious monument and a masterpiece that showcases the pinnacle of Khmer Art. Its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled; its artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal. It is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Angkor Wat is the centerpiece of any visit to the temples of Angkor.
