  Day 1: Angkor Thom complex – Ta Prohm – Angkor Wat complex – Apsara dancing
 
 
Starting at 8am, your tour will begin by visiting Angkor Thom, the capital of the vast and powerful Khmer Empire during range of King Jayavarman VII (AD 1181 - 1220). An experienced guide will lead you through the South Gate of Angkor Thom, famous for its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk. Spend the morning exploring the many sites within this great walled city, including Baphuon, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. The highlight of this section of Angkor Wat is the Bayon temple, which has 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces.
 
A traditional Khmer lunch will be served among the temple ruins within the Angkor complex.
 
In the afternoon, visit Ta Prohm, the 'Indiana Jones' temple which has been largely overgrown by the jungle. This beautiful area remains relatively untouched and features many impressive trees which have grown throughout the ruins. The temple tour concludes at the iconic Angkor Wat, one of the largest temple complexes within the Angkor area. Your guide will explain the many forms of symbolism within the five-towered temple, pointing out many outstanding features of the classical Khmer architecture as you enjoy the sunset
 
Dinner will be served at a local restaurant as you watch an Apsara traditional dance performance
 
  Day 2: Tonle Sap boat ride – floating village – Artisans d’Angkor 
 
 
On the second day of your tour, take a traditional wooden boat for a ride on the Tonle Sap, one of the largest lakes in Asia. During the one and a half hour trip, you will be guided around a floating village, viewing the houses, markets, schools and other buildings which make up this fascinating community on the water.
 
On the way back into Siem Reap, visit Les Artisans d'Angkor - Chantiers Ecoles. This cultural centre works with young artisans to create, produce and market a unique collection of ornamental sculptures, lacquer ware, silk weaving and silk painting. The company promotes fair, sustainable development in order to provide benefits to rural communities. 
 
Choose to eat lunch at one of the many dining options in Siem Reap and the afternoon is at your leisure to explore the local market before returning to your hotel or transportation to your onward travel.
