3 days of Angkor Wat

Our itinerary was as follows with one day break between each day:

DAY 1 ITINERARY: Angkor Wat , Angkor Thom (the capital city in Angkor period), Bayon (Temple with 4 face towers), Baphuon (temple in Angkor Thom that have been just open November 2011 for public after the restoration); Elephant Terrace; Terrace of the Leper King and Phimean Akas temple in the Royal Enclosure

DAY 2 ITINERARY: Sunrise at Angkor Wat; Banteay Srey temple (Citadel of Women, Banteay Samre; Ta Phrom ( Jungle temple); Banteay Kdey temple; Sunset at Pre Rup temple

DAY 3 ITINERARY: Preah Khan temple (Bayon style); Neak Pean temple; Mebon and sunset on Pre Rup temple; Roluos Group (Old Capital city called Hari Haralaya); Bakong temple; Preah Ko; and Lolei temple

PRICING: (Tour Package Prices do not include Temple Passes). 3 Day Temple Pass: $64/person (must be used in 7 consecutive day period. Plus TUKTUK & GUIDE (2 PEOPLE) $185

I do think having a guide is worth the money even though it is expensive. Our guide made minor modifications to the schedule that I did not keep track of but this was basically it. The itinerary listed for day 1 is more or less what everyone does the first day and was the same as I saw 6 years ago. The second and third day were basically all brand new though. The temples in the Angkor Wat complex are anywhere from 900 to 1,200 years old and are truly stunning. The coolest part for me was to see the parts of the temples that have been restored since I was there 6 years ago. Cambodia is one of my all time favorite places and these old temples are worth the effort to come see.

And finally a public service announcement to please be respectful as this is a temple and people to pray here still. Do not do things like this.
