    Accommodations: at hotel

    Activities for today: Breakfast at hotel, transfer to continue our exploration of Angkor - visit the famous South Gate of Angkor Thom, Bayon temple, Baphoun, Terrace of Elephants, Terrace of Leper King and Phimean Akas temple. After lunch other Angkor Ruins such as Chao Say Tevoda, Takeo and Ta prhom temple. Relaxing evening spent at a Dinner and Khmer Traditional Dance (Apsara) Show. Overnight in Siem Reap.

    -------------------------------------------------

    + South Gate of Angkor Thom: The south gate of Angkor Thom is 7.2 km north of Siem Reap, and 1.7 km north of the entrance to Angkor Wat. The walls, 8 m high and flanked by a moat, are each 3 km long, enclosing an area of 9 km2. You can see the giant statues in line at the both sides of the gate, gods in a line and the other are devils.

    + Bayon Temple: It is a well-known and richly decorated Khmer temple at Angkor in Cambodia. The Bayon's most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and massive stone faces on the many towers which jut out from the upper terrace and cluster around its central peak. The temple is known also for two impressive sets of bas-reliefs, which present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and mundane scenes.

    + Elephants Terrace: Elephants Terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. It was attached to the palace of Phimeanakas, which only a few ruins remain.

    + Ta Keo Temple: It is a temple-mountain, possibly the first to be built entirely of sandstone by Khmers. Like Pre Rup, it has five sanctuary towers arranged in a quincunx, built on the uppermost level of five-tier pyramid consisting of overlapping terraces (a step pyramid ), surrounded by moat, as a symbolic depiction of Mount Meru. Its particularly massive appearance is due to the absence of external decorations, as carving had just begun when the works stopped, besides an elaborate use of perspective effects. It is considered an example of the so-called Khleang style.

    + Ta Prohm Temple: The photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. It is famous because of the film "Tomb Raider" also.

    + Apsara dance show - the traditional dance of Khmer people arrived in Cambodia about 2000 years ago (century 1) along with Hinduism. Both were developing rapidly in Angkor era. Apsara quickly became indispensible in every special occasion and event to honor Hinduism Gods. It’s estimated there were about 3000 Apsara dancers during Jayavarman Empire. This was an incredible number in comparison with the country’s population at that time. Nowadays, Apsara dance performances are shorter, opener and more comfortable than the classic ones but they still keep their perfect movements and the sensitive soul of the classic dances. Apsara dancers who are charming and full are symbols of Khmer spirit. As a famous dance of elegance, nobility and softness, every movement displays a balance in soul, no frustration or rush. In performances, Apsara dancers wear tight shirts in bright colors, traditional sampot skirts, and hat in temple-shape which is golden and decorated very sophisticatedly. To be Apsara dancers, women must have fit body, not too skinny or too fat. Especially, their hands and fingers should be small, long and tapering, lung should be straight, and waist should be small.

    + Chantier Ecole-Artisant d’Angkor: is a Cambodian social business enterprise that was set up in 1992 to revive traditional Khmer craftsmanship and to provide education and well-being to young Cambodians from impoverished backgrounds.

    The students at Artisans Angkor not only learn traditional wood and stone-carving techniques but also how to produce traditional silk paintings and lacquer ware.
