Day 01: Siem Reap Arrival
 
 
 
siam reap
Welcome to Siam Reap! Met and greeted by our guide at the airport then take a short transfer to hotel for check-in.
The day's activities will be devoted to the Angkor Temple complex, of which Angkor Wat is a key element.
This architectural masterpiece was constructed in the 12th century and covers an area of about 210 hectares. Construction is thought to have taken around thirty years of intensive labor. Today, Angkor Wat is figured on Cambodia's national flag as the temple symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people.
As dusk nears, a walk to the summit of Phnom Bakheng Hill will afford a panorama of the whole complex lit by the rays of the setting sun, weather permitting of course.
