Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Today, ride to the spectacular 10th-century Hindu temple Banteay Srei (“Citadel of Women”) to see magnificent carvings of Shiva and Vishnu. Then, journey to Ta Prohm, one of the most popular of the Temples of Angkor. Unlike many other buildings, it has been left as it was discovered, with trees and large shrubs growing over the ruins.
After lunch on your own, visit a local village supported by Viking River Cruises, observe school children at work and find out how you can “adopt” a child to help support their education.
This evening enjoy dinner in a local restaurant followed by a Cambodian Circus show which uniquely blends together theater, music, dance, acrobatics, jugging and aerial acts. (B, D)
