Visit the eight meter tall statue of a reclining Buddha
A 1.5 hour drive north of Siem Reap will bring you to Phnom Kulen, which provides Siem Reap with water and dominates the skyline of the flat plains surrounding it. Although the highest peak of the mountain range lies at only 487m, Phnom Kulen has much to offer visitors. The Cambodian people regard the site as the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire. Visit the eight meter tall statue of a reclining Buddha and wash your hands at the Linga statue to purify your mind and body.
Enjoy a picnic lunch which is well-prepared from one of the well-known restaurants in town.
Continue to visit the spectacular ruins of BengMealea, which was constructed by King Suryavarman II (1113-1150). It preceded and may have served as a prototype of sorts for Angkor Wat. Contrary to Angkor, few carvings or bas-reliefs are evident. Today the temple is largely overrun by vegetation and the stone walls are crumbling which adds to its charm in a unique way. After your visit, drive 1.5 hours back to your hotel.
