OPTION 4: REMOTE TOUR ROLUOS GROUP AND BENG MELEA

We begin with an exploration of the Psa Leu wholesale market to enjoy an explosion of colours, sights, sounds and smells. Here you can find everything from sieves, silks and snakes, through to the early morning fruit and vegetable displays. This wholesale market receives few tourists, and is open from 4am in the morning—the earlier you visit, the better.

Along the way, we explore the Rolous Group, comprising three main temple sites: Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong, all located in the earliest Angkorian capital, Hariharalaya. Explore the earliest large scale temples of the Angkor period and recognize the first use of various architectural forms such as the Naga and the stepped or tiered temple mountain which became themes for many subsequent monuments. Highlights include the well-preserved stone elephants at Bakong and its mountain temple—be prepared to climb, and keep climbing. Preah Ko features some very fine carvings, and inscriptions in ancient Khmer featured on the three towers.

Beng Mealea, A Jungle-Clad Temple: We then travel through villages on the outskirts of Siem Reap to the mysterious Beng Mealea temple, the blueprint for Angkor Wat. This temple is overgrown with trees and vines, and is an explorers dream: venture into darkened doorways, skirt crumbling pillars and walk down the long promenades lined by the Naga balustrades.
