You will have lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will continue exploring the mysterious Royal city of Angkor Thom. Its 54-tower temple is an awesome sight.

At first glance, it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are

engulfed by the silent, heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes, staring out from a primitive and remote time. Further, visit the surroundings of the complex including the Baphou, Elephant Terraces, Lipper King Terrace and Royal Palace Enclosure area. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for this day.
