Begin your day with a visit to one of Angkor's largest Khmer temples, Angkor Wat, built for King Suryavarman II in the 12th century AD. With its beautiful proportions and extensive intricate bas-relief stone carvings, it is one of the most spectacular sights in Southeast Asia. Explore the fortified city of Angkor Thom, which houses several of Angkor's most popular sights. You also visit the mysterious Bayon Temple, known for its giant stone-carved faces with their enigmatic smiles. Relax this evening. (B, D),
