Explore Preah Vihear this morning. Considered by many to be among the most impressive temples in Asia, it is a privilege to be able to visit again after it was off-limits for many years due to a border dispute with Thailand. Continue south to another off the beaten track area at Phnom Kulen, before reaching Banteay Srei. Here you will overnight in a local homestay.

Today is a busy one, full of the must-see attractions within the temples of Angkor. Highlights include Ta Prohm which was made famous by the Tombraider film. The imposing faces of The Bayon are not to be missed and the day ends at Angkor Wat itself. As with all of our touring we go to great lengths to get the best guides and plan things in such a way as to avoid crowds when possible and see things in the best light of the day.
