2 City Temple Tour – Royal Grand Palace & Emerald Buddha Breakfast at hotel and then sightseeing tour to visit: At first visit to Wat Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha, the temple is famous for its 900-years old five-and-a-half-ton solid gold image, and then continue to visit Wat Arun, perhaps better known as the Temple of the Dawn, is one of the best known landmarks and one of the most published images of Bangkok. After that, visit to Wat Po, the largest and oldest temple in Bangkok, as well as the largest single Buddha image: the Reclining Buddha (Phra Buddhasaiyas). The temple is also known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage Reclining Buddha. Lunch at local restaurant, after lunch, we continue to visit the most famous tourist places in Bangkok, Royal Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha. The Grand Palace adjoins Wat Phra Kaew in a common compound, and is where you will end up after exiting Wat Phra Kaew. Despite the proximity of the two, there's a distinct contrast in style between the very Thai Wat Phra Kaew and the more European inspired designs of the Grand Palace (the roof being the exception). After this place we back to the hotel and free at leisure. Overnight in Bangkok.
3 Bangkok – Siem Reap – Temple of Angkor Morning we transfer you to airport for flight to Siem Reap, home to the famous Angkor Wat, one of the greatest cultural monuments in the world. Siem Reap is a small town filled with resorts and hotels. Its peaceful environment covers all houses which are not allowed to be taller than Angkor towers. You won't have to wait long as you start your Angkor Wat sightseeing right away after landing. Built to honor the Hindu god Vishnu, Angkor Wat took nearly 40 years to complete. Inside the outer walls the structure rises over three levels to a central core topped by five pineapple-shaped towers. Virtually every surface in the maze of chambers and courtyards is richly decorated with low-relief scenes of legends, wars and everyday life, and is enhanced by carvings of nearly 2,000 celestial dancers. It is much more than just sightseeing, it's feeling the wonder of culture, of time, and of the people who created it. Another highlight of the day is the view of the sunset on Angkor from Phnom Bakheng hill, an unforgettable sight. You will have a buffet dinner at a local restaurant with an Apsara Show... the soul of Khmer people. Overnight in Siem Reap.
