If you feel up to it, climb to the top of the Pyramid temple and survey the jungle surrounded rice fields, or just wonder around the base. Then pop over to Prasad Thneng, and/or Prasad Leung to see some of the best endowed Shiva Linga in Cambodia.

Next stop is Prasad Bram where the Strangler Figs are reclaiming the temples for the Jungle, being a lot quieter than Angkor Area you can hear birds singing in the Jungle. Grab some local lunch when the sun is high in the sky and then we make our way to the Jungle Temple of Beng Mealea. End your day around 6:30pm back at your hotel or a Siem Reap restaurant.
