Day 1: Arrival Siem Reap

Greet by our professional English speaking tour guide in Siem Reap and transfer to hotel to check in. Siem Reap is the gateway to the majestic temples of Angkor and a charming little town.

Take a rest from your flight or discover Siem Reap on a stroll through its beautiful Wats and the colourful markets on your own. The rest of the time free and easy on your own leisure. 

Overnight at Siem Reap
Meal included on this day: Breakfast

 

Day 2: Siem Reap

After breakfast, head to the ancient city of Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom was the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire. This city is surrounded by an 8 m high wall drawing a perfect square. You will enter the city from the ancient South Gate, 

an impressive stone gate carved with Elephants and four giant faces. On each side of the entrance path, a row of 54 gods or demons is holding the sacred Naga snake.From here, continue to Bayon Temple in the exact center of the city. This 12th century masterpiece is a study in grandeur. The exterior gallery walls have extensive, superb bas-reliefs, particularly the East and South Galleries.

This afternoon, explore the highlights of the Small Circuit. Start your tour with a visit to Ta Prohm temple, built in the mid 12th to early 13th centuries. Ta Prohm is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes Ta Prohm one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples.

Your visit will also include BanteayKdei, a Buddhist monastery from the late 12th Century, and SrahSrang, also known as the “pool of ablutions”. From here, it is only a short hop to the most beautiful temples of the Grand Circuit, like the overgrown Preah Khan Temple and NeakPean with its artificial lakes.  

Overnight in Siem Reap.
Meal included on this day: Breakfast

 

Day 3: Banteay Srei, Angkor Wat

Early today, travel to the “gem” of the Angkor area, the pretty temple of BanteaySrey, which is best viewed in the warm morning light. The so-called “Citadel of the Women” was built between the 11th and 13th century and remains the best preserved temple in Cambodia.

It displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art as this small temple is noted for its truly remarkable fine bas-reliefs, depicting Hindu god Shiva. BanteaySrey is unique in that it is constructed of pink sandstone, which is seen nowhere else in Angkor. On the way back, you will have the possibility to stop at local communities along the way and your guide will help you to interact with the local community to learn about the way of life here.

Seize the opportunity to see how rice paper is produced and to taste Palm Wine and Palm Sugar, which are a popular local produce. Peek into BanteaySamre, a fine temple in the style of Angkor Wat, before returning to your hotel for some time at leisure. Early afternoon, set out with your own private tuktuk, a local means of transportation, to enjoy the spectacular view of the Angkor Temples from above as you depart on a ride in a tethered helium balloon that takes you 120m up in the air!

Now you are ready to see the highlight of your tour through Cambodia: Visit the famous Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat is constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing the Mount Meru, home of the gods. The divine residence of Vishnu, the King himself was to reside here after his death.

Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II fought during his reign. Moreover, Angkor Wat is well known for the more than 2,000 Apsara dancers decorating the temple. Today, Angkor Wat is figured on Cambodia's national flag as the temple symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people.  

Overnight in Siem Reap.
Meal included on this day: Breakfast

Day 4: Rolous Group, Tonle Sap Lake

After breakfast, head out to the early-Angkor era temples of the Roluos Group, about 15km outside of Siem Reap. Roluos is the site of an ancient center of Khmer civilization known as Hariharalaya.

It was the first town built by the Angkorian kings in the 8th and 9th century and consists of three main temples: Bakong, Lolei and PreahKo. The beautiful surrounding countryside with its paddy fields and sugar palm trees is very typical for Cambodia. Return to the hotel for a break during the midday heat. From here, continue to Kampong Phluck on the shores of the mighty Tonlé Sap Lake.

This village is completely built on stilts, as it is submerged during the raining season. Here, you will embark on an interesting boat trip on the lake, where you will learn about life on the lake. Tonlé Sap is South East Asia’s largest freshwater lake with its size varying greatly depending on the season. During the dry season it is roughly 2,500 km2, swelling to about 4 times it size in during the wet season!

Board a local boat and visit Kampong Phluck and its enigmatic flooded forests. Enjoy your lunch on the boat; you will also pass floating villages, complete with floating hospital, schools and even a floating basketball court! You will also have the opportunity to visit a crocodile farm. You will have some time at leisure for your personal activities.

Day 5: Siem Reap-Kampong Thom-Phnom Penh

After a buffet breakfast at the hotel we will start our transfer to Kampong Thom sitiated 140km away. The tarnsfer takes about 2.5 hours to the famous temple site of Sambor Prey Kuk.

After having explored Angkor Wat, Sambor Prey Kuk is a magnificent and quiet jungle exploration. The road to Sambor Prey Kuk will lead us over quiet inland roads with beautiful views of paddy fields and many local villages with traditional life styles. Sambor Prey Kuk was built in the Chenla period between the 6th and 7th period and hosts a number of well preserved temples scattered around the jungle.

Small and sandy tracks link the 3 main temples sites in a loop of around 8km. This loop is best done by foot or bicycle. We can rent local bicycles and enjoy a beautiful ride along the temples over small and shady paths with breathtaking views. Around lunchtime we finish up our bike ride of 8km and settle for an excellent prepared lunch by the local community. We eat like the locals like to eat in picnic style in small wooden huts on the river side.

After lunch we transfer the remaining 170km (3hrs) towards Phnom Penh. Cambodia's capital is a vibrant bustling city nestled majestically on the banks of the confluence of the mighty rivers of the Mekong and the Tonle Sap. These rivers then split again, at the Mekong and the Tonle Bassac, at a place known to the Khmers as Chaktomuk, meaning four faces. Phnom Penh is a veritable oasis compared to the modern nature of other Asian capitals.

With wide tree-lined boulevards and low-rise buildings, Phnom Penh still reflects the colonial days of this former French playground. Many French colonial buildings are still in evidence today and add to the charm and ambience of the city. Over recent years the development of Phnom Penh has been dramatic, with a wide range of western hotels and restaurants now available for both the discerning and budget conscious visitor.

You check into your hotel and enjoy your leisure time.
