ONE DAY TOUR: Preah Khan - Neak Pean - Ta Som - East Mebon - Banteay Srei - Banteay Samre - Pre Rup
Morning, your private Angkorist Tourist Guide and driver will pick you up at your self-booked hotel at around 08:00 AM, take you to buy Angkor pass (on your own account) at the ticket office and then escort you to visit one of the largest temple in Angkor area, Preah Khan was the Buddhist King's Father temple and was built on the battle site where King Jaya-varman VII finally defeated the Chams. And keep going to visit Neak Pean was originally designed for medical purposes (the ancients believed that going into these pools would balance the elements in the bather, thus curing disease) - Ta Som was Buddhist King's sister temple, The eastern outer gopura has been overgrown by a sacred fig (Ficus religiosa) which has grown down through the blocks that make up the Gopura and into the ground - East Mebon was the Hindu temple, The elaborate brick shrines are dotted with neatly arranged holes, which attached the original plasterwork. The base of the temple is guarded at its corners by perfectly carved stone figures of elephants.
Lunch is on your own arrangement and my private tour guide is also glad to provide some recommendations.
Afternoon, we will take you to visit Banteay Srei is cut from stone of a pinkish hue and includes some of the finest stone carving anywhere on Earth. Begun in AD 967, it is one of the smallest sites at Angkor - Banteay Samre dates from the same period as Angkor Wat and was built by Suryavarman II. And we will take you to explore Pre Rup 'Turning the Body' and refers to a traditional method of cremation in which a corpse's outline is traced in the cinders: this suggests that the temple may have served as an early royal crematorium.
The whole one day Angkor Grand Tour will come to an end here. The guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
