After a lunch at your leisure, discover Ta Prohm. Famous for being the set of the Tomb Raider movie, this mysterious temple is being taken over by nature with giant trees covering its old stones. Finally, head to the worldwide famous Angkor Wat temple.

Note: During the visit of the Bakan tower of Angkor Wat temple, visitors are required to wear a proper attire, covering shoulders and knees as this temple is still considered to be a sacred site (no shorts, miniskirts or short trousers). It will be closed on the Buddhist Sabbath Days, the Buddhist religious days, four days a month in accordance with the Lunar Calendar. Bakan tower only allows 100 people at once, so visitors have line up if they wish to climb up.

In the afternoon, take a short cruise for around 1 hour on a Angkor gondola boat. Enjoy gliding gently along, as the sun sets over the gates of Angkor Thom.

In the evening, enjoy a dinner at local restaurant whilst watching an Apsara Dance performance.
