Angkor Review - 3days 2nights

Beng Melea Temple which is still lost in the jungle. A rather bumpy 2-3 hours drive through the beautiful countryside takes us there. Beng Melea is almost the size of Angkor Wat and is one of the largest ensembles build during the Khmer Kingdom. It is enclosed by a huge moat of 1200m x 900m and the temple presents in places a veritable chaos of fallen debris beside areas that remain absolutely intact - but everywhere vegetation reigns as master. During our visit we will have to walk over ruins and climb over trees to fully explore this site. The decoration of Beng Malea is simple and animated only in certain areas but you can find several bas-reliefs' showing scenes from the Khmer Mythology.

Day 03 - Exploring Romote Temple of Beng Mealea and departure

We travel to the lost temple of Beng Mealea, the titanic of temples, a slumbering giant lost for centuries in the forests of Cambodia. It is the most accessible of Angkor’s lost temples, a mirror image of Angkor Wat, but utterly consumed by the voracious appetite of nature. Constructed by Suryavarman II (1113-1150), the builder of Angkor Wat, the forest has run riot here and it is hard to get a sense of the monument’s shape amid the daunting ruins.

Lunch at local restaurant or hotel

In the afternoon, we continue to visit the "Chantiers Ecoles - Les Artisans d'Angkor" and local market for shopping. Transfer to Siem Reap airport for next destination.
