Tour details

Day 1: Siem Reap Arrival (D)

Stay overnight: Siem Reap | Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Siem Reap Angkor (B/L)

Begin your day with an early morning wake-up call to witness the stunning sunrise at Angkor Wat. Following this, return to your hotel for a delicious breakfast before embarking on a tour of Angkor Thom. This includes a visit to the South Gate, Bayon Temple, which was constructed by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th century and boasts 54 towers, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace, and the Terrace of the Leper King. Next, explore Ta Prohm, a temple surrounded by lush jungle.

In the afternoon, continue your journey by visiting Angkor Wat, the world's largest temple complex, spanning over 200 hectares and surrounded by a moat and exterior wall measuring 1300 meters x 1500 meters. As the day draws to a close, hop on a Tuk Tuk, a popular open-sided taxi in Cambodia, to cruise around the outskirts of Siem Reap town. End your day with a blessing ceremony by Buddhist monks, wishing you happiness, prosperity, and a safe journey.

Day 3: Siem Reap Tonle Sap Lake (B/L)

After having breakfast at the hotel, we will depart from the city and travel on a newly paved road to reach the Banteay Srei temple, which is intricately carved and well-preserved. On the way, we will make a stopover at the Preah Dark village and then proceed to visit the Banteay Samre Temple, which is adorned with impressive reliefs depicting scenes of Vishnu and Krishna legends. In the afternoon, we will drive for 18km towards Tonle Sap, where we will enjoy a private boat ride with a guide on the largest permanent freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The lake flows into the Tonle Sap River, which joins the Mekong in Phnom Penh.

During the boat ride, we will witness a fishermen's "floating village" that includes floating schools, a floating police station, and more. This village is like a big village floating on the lake, and it moves from place to place following water levels and currents.

Stay overnight: Siem Reap | Meals: Breakfast |Lunch

Day 4: Siem Reap (B/L)

In the morning, embark on a scenic drive to the remote Beng Mealea temple, located approximately 60 kilometers from Siem Reap. The journey takes approximately 2 hours and offers plenty of opportunities to witness the vibrant Khmer countryside, including lively villages and vast rice paddies. Upon arrival, explore the abandoned 11th-century temple, which has been overtaken by the jungle. Afterward, continue your adventure with a 1-hour drive to Koh Ker, situated in the northeast of Siem Reap.

This region is home to a plethora of abandoned temples, including Chok Gargyar, which served as the capital of Jayavarman IV from 928-42. Despite its short-lived reign, Koh Ker boasts an impressive number of religious structures, with over 30 major buildings and potentially up to 100 minor sacred sites. The region also saw a prolific period of sculpture, with some of the most impressive pieces now housed in the National Museum in Phnom Penh, including a massive garuda. After a day of exploration, return to Siem Reap.

Stay overnight: Siem Reap | Meals: Breakfast |Lunch

Day 5: Siem Reap – Battambang (B/L)

Start your day with breakfast at the hotel before embarking on a scenic drive to Battambang. Upon arrival, check in to your hotel and then head out for an afternoon adventure. Take a drive along the picturesque Sangker River to visit Wat Slaket Pagoda, the residence of the provincial Buddhist patriarch. Continue your journey to Wat Ek Phnom and then visit a local market where you can witness the production of Prahoc, a traditional Cambodian fish paste. Return to Battambang town before heading to Oudombong village, where you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the amusing sliding bamboo train.

Stay overnight: Battambang | Meals: Breakfast |Lunch

Day 6: Battambang (B/L)

Begin your day with a delicious breakfast at the hotel before embarking on a scenic drive to Phnom Banon. This hilltop destination boasts five impressive sandstone towers and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding plains. In the afternoon, continue your adventure by exploring Phnom Sampeou Mountain, a place steeped in legend. At the top of the mountain, you'll find Wat Sampeou and a group of caves that were once used as 'killing caves' by the Khmer Rouge.

These caves contain the skeletal remains of their victims, adding a haunting element to your visit. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to explore natural caves, including some that are truly spectacular. If you're interested in seeing the bats fly out from the cave, consider staying until later in the afternoon before returning to town.

Stay overnight: Phnom Penh | Meals: Breakfast |Lunch

Day 8: Phnom Penh (B/L)

The day will begin with breakfast at the hotel, followed by a visit to the Royal Palace, which is currently the residence of His Majesty, the King of Cambodia, and the royal families. The palace is like a small town of royal dynasties. Next, we will visit the Silver Pagoda, which serves more as a repository for cultural treasures than a functioning temple. Here, we will see a 90 kg golden Buddha encrusted with 2086 diamonds. We will then proceed to the Wat Phnom Temple, one of the most important pagodas in Phnom Penh.

This temple was built in 1373 on an artificial hill by the wealthy widow Daun Chi Penh. In the afternoon, we will drive to the "Killing Fields" of Choeng Ek, located 15 km south of Phnom Penh. Between 1975 and 1978, about 17,000 men, women, children, and infants (including nine westerners) were detained, tortured, and transported to the extermination camp of Choeng Ek. We will also visit the Tuol Sleng Museum (S-21 prison), a former school that was used as a prison by Pol Pot's security forces.

More than 17,000 people held at S-21 were taken to the extermination camp at Choeng Ek to be executed. If time permits, we will also visit the Russian Market (Toul Tumpong Market), which is known for its cheap clothing, a large selection of Buddha images and woodcarvings, betel-nut boxes, silk, silver jewelry, and classic music instruments.
