  • Day 3: Siem Reap: Roluos Group – Ta Prohm – Angkor Thom (B,­,D)
    • After breakfast, you will take a trip back through time and visit one of the early Angkor capitals, the Hariharalaya, commonly known as the Roluos Group. Here you will get to see temples such as Lolei, Preah Ko, and Bakong.
      Continue on to Ta Prohm, which has been slowly swallowed by the jungle. Man may have originally conquered the jungle to erect buildings here, but over the course of centuries, nature has reclaimed it, and the temple sports giant trees spreading their tentacle-like roots into its very rocks.
      Moving on you will visit many more temples that are part of the sprawling complex, including the mysterious Royal city of Angkor Thom and Bayon with its 54 towers and hundreds of smiling stone faces. Then you will tour the outskirts of the complex, visiting Baphuon, Elephant Terrace, Leper Kings Terrace and the Royal palace.
      In the evening you will enjoy an Apsara dance show with your dinner and then spend the night in Siem Reap.
