You'll depart from Amansara around 6.30am for the South Gate of Angkor Thom, from here we continue on by remork to Bayon, where we will begin with an explanation of the lower level bas-reliefs carvings, gradually circling to the inner walls, where you will notice unfinished carvings completed after the reign of king Jayavarman VII. A narrative is provided on the faces of the king.

A short climb leads to the upper level, which offers the best views. At this time of the morning the light reflecting upon these carvings is completely captivating.

From here it is a short walk to the celestial palace of Baphuon, an early Angkorian temple recently restored. Your remork remains on call with cool water and cold towels.

The state temple of King Udayadityavarman, Baphuon, has been described as the world’s largest three-dimensional puzzle. An easy but little known walk through lush jungle brings us to the South Gate of the Royal Palace to visit Phimeanakas, it's here we continue to the north side to see the royal baths that make a wonderful location to rest.

Cast your eyes downwards to look for scattered shards of roof tiles and domestic pottery underfoot and remnants of the sovereign’s private dwellings that once filled this royal enclosure. We will exit through the East Gate leading to the Elephant Terrace with its scenic bas-reliefs and the terrace of the leper king that represents Mount Meru, the centre of the Buddhist cosmos. Your driver will meet you and you'll return to Amansara by approximately 10.00am, before the day becomes too hot.
