* Banteay Kdei - located at the southeast of Ta Prohm, the Citadel is built in the mid of 12th century to 13th century by king Jayavarman II following 2 different styles of the Angkor Wat and the Bayon but less complex than these 2 monuments.
* Prasat Kravan - located on the south of the Srah Srang artificial lake. It was built in the first half of the 10th century (921) during the reign of Harshavarman 1 in Hindu religion. The main point of interest at Kravan is the sculpture on the interior of two of the five towers depicting Vishnu and his consort Laksmi; the scene in the central tower is the most impressive one. These carvings in brick on the interior of a monument are unique in Khmer architecture.

Day 2: SIEM REAP (B, L, D)
 
Transfer to the ancient city of Angkor Thom – called “the Great City”:  after Jayavarman VII recaptured the Angkorian capital from the Cham invaders in 1181, he began a massive building campaign across the empire, constructing Angkor Thom as his new capital city. He began with existing structures such as Baphuon and Phimeanakas and built a grand enclosed city around them, adding the outer moat. 
 
Visits:
 
* South Gate - the mosted bustling gate as it is the best renovated gate and it leads directly to Angkor Wat.
* Bayon Temple - a buddist temple but it still retains most of elements of the Hindu archeology and imagery.
* Baphoun - a temple built in 1066, before the reign of Jayavarma VII.
* Phimeanakas Temple - located in the middle of the old Royal Palace, symbolizing a Sky Palace and was a place of worship. It means: All of the kings had promoted themselves like the god king’s sons.
* Terrace of the Elephants - served as a viewing platform for royal festivities and depicts elephants and garuda.
* Terrace of the Leper King - The terrace of the Leper King lies just to the north of the Terrace of the Elephants, aligned with it but standing separately. It is named, or rather mis-named, for the seated statue which once occupied the platform and has now been moved to the National Museum in Phnom Penh for safe-keeping. The statue was formerly thought to represent a legendary "leper king," but is now considered to represent Yama, the Lord of the Dead; the terrace itself might have functioned as a cremation platform.
