 Start early at 5 a.m. to catch the iconic sunrise at Angkor Wat.

in the early 12th

century, Angkor Wat was constructed following the model of the temple

mountain symbolizing Mount Meru, the home of the gods.

 Back to the hotel for breakfast.

 Take a midday break to refuel and escape the sun’s hottest rays. Resume the Siem

Reap sightseeing tour with a visit to the temples of Ta Phrom and Bayon.

Overgrown with trees and vines, Ta Phrom temple is a perfect example of how nature

 This evening attend a performance of ‘Phare, the Cambodian Circus’. Starting at 7

p.m., professional artists of Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS) will perform an inspiring show

suitable for people of all ages. Set up in Battambang in 1994 by young Cambodians

returning from the refugee camps, who learnt how to use art as a means to cope with

trauma, PPS has played an influential role in promoting and developing Khmer culture

over the years after the Khmer Rouge genocide. The hour-long show mixes traditional

and modern theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, and contortion woven around

the story of Cambodian life and society.

(Please note, we may do this today or the next day.)
