Day 1: Say Hello To Siem Reap
Welcome to Siem Reap city, the province's capital, which is located in northwestern Cambodia. After a long flight, you finally reach our well-known destination. Your hospitable tour guide will meet you at the Phnom Penh airport and transfer you to the hotel in the city's heart for check-in.
Siem Reap - an impressive city for tourists
Now, let's breathe the new energy of the Siem Reap city tour with BestPrice Travel.
Day 2: Visit Angkor Temples
The tour guide will welcome you to your accommodation and drive you to the Angkor temple complex. When the sunlight washes over all the temples and ruins of Angkor Wat, it's also the moment for one of the largest religious complexes in the world shines itself - Siem Reap.
In the morning, we will set foot in the antique capital of Angkor Thom (12th century) to see the South Gate (with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk), Bayon Temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avalokitesvara), the Elephants Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King and Ta Prohm.
The latter is a stunning jungle temple that has remained mostly unexplored since it was found and still remains a mystery.
Angkor Thom Temple was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire.
In the afternoon, we will turn to the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex, covering nearly 81-hectare, seems to be comparable in size to Beijing's Imperial Palace.
Besides, you will have the chance to see the distinctive five towers, which are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag, and the 12th-century masterpiece considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. For those who may not know, Angkor Wat's five towers symbolize Meru's five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the world's edge and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond.
Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and is the largest religious monument in the world
After your tour, you'll be transferred back to the hotel and refreshed all day.
Day 3: Explore Banteay Srey and the Grand Circuit
Your third day covers these destinations: Banteay Srei Temple, Banteay Samre in the morning, Takeo, Thommanon, Chau Say Tevoda, Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Som, Eastern Mebon, and Pre Rup in the afternoon.
In the morning, the tour guide will drive you to the first stop: Banteay Srei Temple, which is well-known for its 10th century. With an indication of the distinctiveness of this little gem of a temple, it is also honorably called the jewel in the crown of classical Khmer Art.
Banteay Srei is one of the most elaborate temples at Angkor, Cambodia
Next, we will move to Banteay Samre, one of the complete complexes at Angkor due to restoration using the method of "anastylosis". At noon, dine and drink at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon, we visit Takeo, Thommanon, and Chau Say Tevoda. Then, we move to Preah Khan temple. Built by King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. However, it is in a good state of preservation, and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation.
Preah Khan is one of the most significant temples erected during the ancient Khmer empire.
Keep going to the next stop; we will meet at the fountain Neak Pean, which is built in the middle of a pool, represents the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain lake, and is guarded by stone figures of harnessed elephants (so-called Ta Som and Eastern Mebon).
And finally, we will turn up at Pre Rup, the mountain temple, until sunset. After that, return to your hotel and the end of services!

After chilling with optional breakfast, you will leave Siem Reap to Angkor International Airport in Phnom Penh for the departure flight. Have a safe flight, and hope to see you again!
