Siem Reap:

Explore the highlights of Angkor Wat park from an open-air, motorcycle-drawn carriage. The largest, best preserved, and most religiously significant of the Angkor temples, the eponymous temple impresses visitors both by its sheer scale and beautifully proportioned layout, as well as the delicate artistry of its carvings. Cross the vast moat and continue along a broad causeway lined with carved naga (snake) stone balustrades. Be sure to stop and enjoy the intricate stone carvings that adorn nearly every surface, with some 1,700 Apsaras, or celestial dancers, sculpted into the walls. Angkor Wat is stunning at any time of the day, but sunrise and sunset are especially beautiful times to watch the play of light on the stones.

Next visit Angkor Thom, a fortified city that covers an area of 10 square km. Enclosed by a wall and wide moats, the city includes many of Angkor's most popular sights. Enter by the monumental south gate over a causeway lined on either side by statues of demons and gods, each carrying a giant naga. Continue to the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leopard Kings, former spaces for public ceremonies, both adorned with dramatic bas reliefs. You'll visit the ruined Baphoun, Royal Enclosure, and Phimeanakas before continuing to the mysterious Bayon Temple. In this temple, one of the most popular and compelling in Angkor, explore the galleries of beautifully preserved bas reliefs and ascend narrow stairs to reach the central sanctuary, where you will find giant stone faces smiling enigmatically down at you from every angle.
