Your next visit will be the Bayon, a bizarre structure of several architectural changes reflecting a switch from Hinduism (the foundations) to Buddhism (the superstructure), the Elephant and Leper King Terraces followed by a visit to Ta Prohm Temple, which is a wonderful combination of human genius and natural beauty with its giant trees that have grown there for centuries.

In the afternoon, you’ll explore Angkor Wat itself, the largest, and for most people, the most impressive temple in the complex after which you can watch the sunset from the top of Phnom Bakheng Hill.

Day 3: Siem Reap insight.

Rise up early for the ox cart ride to get a true sense of the quiet life of rural Cambodia. Starting from your hotel at 5.00 AM, you will be driven by tuk tuk to Chreav village. Upon arrival, you will have chance to take a ride along dirt tracks aboard an ox-cart - the traditional form of transport here to enjoy the sun rise over the paddy fields. After that, you will tour through the village, seeing local people going about their daily life.

Afterward, transfer back to the hotel for your breakfast and relax.

Check out at noon and proceed to the one of the city’s lively open markets, Psar Chass, called the “Old Market”, where you can see the locals shopping and going about their lives.

In the afternoon, you will take a slow 30 minute ride on the Bamboo train before visiting Phnom Sampov - an important religious site known throughout all Cambodia. During the Khmer Rouge period the mountain was used as a place to kill "enemies" of the regime and in what are known as the "killing caves" there is a memorial to these victims. Every evening at nightfall thousands of bats make their way out of caves in the hillside to feed before returning at dawn.
