Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, the Big Circuit

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

After breakfast, we will ride our bicycles to the temples complex where we'll first stop at the jungle temple of Ta Prohm. It has been largely consumed by the jungle and as you will climb through the dilapidated stone structures you will see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. At every turn, you will expect to see Indiana Jones or Lara Croft step out from behind a fallen pillar. Ta Phrom looks as many of the monuments did when European explorers first laid eyes on them. Afterward, we will continue to bike through the Victory gate to reach the royal city of Angkor Thom. Our visit will begin with the Elephant Terrace and the Terrace of Leper King. We will continue to the Bayon, a pyramid temple decorated with about 200 gigantic carved heads. Then, we will have lunch in one of the local restaurants around the temple, and in the afternoon, we will continue to bike along the “grand circuit” to see more temples of the Angkor Era, such as Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Som, East Mebon, Pre Rup and, if we still have time, Banteay Kdei.
