Overnight in Siem Reap.
Day 02: Siem Reap – Angkor Temples (B)
We start this day tour with Angkor Thom, an epic collection of striking structures encompassed in quadrangle area. The walkway leads us to the Royal Enclosure where remains some mysterious ruins, including the Royal Palace, Phimeanakas Temple, and Royal Terraces. These structures built from perishable materials have long vanished. The memorable climax of our visit is Bayon Temple built in the centre of Angkor Thom. This enigmatic complex contains 54 towers, each topped off with the four faces of Compassion Buddha.
Upon leaving Angkor Thom Area , we take a short drive to the architectural masterpiece of Angkor Wat - one of the modern wonders of the world. Be amazed by the sheer size of the temple and learn how the Khmer Empire prospered between the 9th and 13th Century, around the time when the temple was built.
We round out day tour with a walk up the Pre Rup Temple to enjoy the spectacular sunset over these sandstone monuments.
Overnight in Siem Reap.
Optional tour : Khmer Food tasting by tuk tuk
This evening, be picked up at the hotel at 18:00 for a Cambodian Street Food Discovery. Transfer by local tuk-tuk to the local night market to enjoy the tantalizing sights smells and flavors of local specialties. Stroll through the alleys and side streets around Psar Chas area (Old Market) area to savor real Cambodian snacks, carefully selected for cleanliness and standards as the local people do, including pancakes, fruit shakes grasshoppers, spiders, cockroaches, or crickets. Followed by a local beer if you so wish to wash all the tasty morsels down. Then, head to a local restaurant to sample some traditional Cambodia dishes that are created based on your allergy restriction.
Day 03: Siem Reap – Angkor Temples (B)
Today, drive out to visit the Banteay Srei that translates to “the Citadel of the Women”. Originally constructed in the 10th Century and dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, this red sand-stone temple is one of Angkor’s most significant structures as its walls are decorated with elaborate carvings which have been remarkably well preserved.
Continue on your exploration of the famous jungle temple of Ta Prohm where several shots of the adventure movie “The Tomb Raider” were filmed. This beautiful Buddhist temple was not restored and looks just as it did when French explorers stumbled it in the 1860s. The magnificent tree roots have merged over the centuries with the temple’s huge stone blocks, emphasizing a ‘forgotten city’ feeling.
Overnight in Siem Reap.
Optional : Night time experience Phare Cambodian Circus
Tonight attend a performance from Phare, the Cambodian Circus. Starting at 8pm, professional artists of Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS) will perform an inspiring show suitable for people of all ages. An hour-long Khmer cultural show, professional artists mix traditional and modern forms of theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling and contortion to perform a story about Cambodian lives and society.
Day 04: Siem Reap – Tonle Sap lake – Departure (B)
Today, drive around 1 hour toward the west of Siem Reap to visit the off the beaten track floating village of Me Chrey on the great Tonle Sap Lake, the largest lake in Southeast Asia. This is one of Siem Reap’s little known floating villages where life is simple and slow with people living on the water, close to nature.
Board a local boat for a relaxing cruise to discover the daily life of the Khmer community that largely depends on fishing for survival all year round. This fishing community also boats small shops, a school and a medical centre on the water. It is possible to make a stop along the waterway to have a chat with the local villagers to learn more about how this floating community lives, works, and trades. One thing to be sure, life on land is very different from life on the water!
Enjoy your last moment in Siem Reap. Then, return to the hotel to check out and then transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
