    Day 4: Siem Reap

    Breakfast at hotel. Star your ANGKOR WONDER TOUR.

    Visit one of the earliest Angkor temples, located approximately 15km outside Siem Reap. The site is the center of an old Khmer civilization called Hariharalaya and was built by Angkorian kings as far back as the 8th century. The three main temples of the town are Bakong, Lolei and Preah Ko and the scenic countryside that surrounds them gives you the perfect glimpse at the typical landscapes of Cambodia.

    You’ll take a cow cart ride around the area to discover paddy fields and friendly locals as you move on to the village pagoda where you will be blessed by a local monk to grant you good fortune for your journey.

    Afternoon. We will visit the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire where you’ll learn the history of the ancient temples.

    You’ll enter the city through the ancient South Gate, an impressive stone archway with carvings of elephants and four giant faces sculpted into the surface. After passing through the gate you’ll continue to Bayon Temple in the exact center of the city. This 12th century masterpiece is majestic to see up close and is famous for its 54 towers with enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-see structures and are both known for their intricate stone sculptures.

    Tonight, a special Khmer dinner will be served for you to accompany a traditional Khmer Apsara dance. The Apsaras are legendary characters from the ancient Khmer tale of Reamker, which is closely related to the Hindu Ramayana. It takes years for the dancers to master the the fine and elaborate gestures of the Apsara.

    Day 5: Siem Reap

    Breakfast at hotel. Transfer to explore Ta Prohm Temple, which you may recognize from the movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie, which was set and filmed here.

    Ta Prohm is unique in that it has been left largely as it was discovered: overgrown and engulfed by trees and vines, with many parts of the temple in a state of disrepair. This character makes the temple one of the most memorable and unique of the Angkor temples.

    You’ll visit Banteay Kdei, a Buddhist monastery built in the 12th century and Srah Srang, or Royal Bath, a large body of water that was at one time considered the most beautiful area of Siem Reap. 

    Towards the sunset, drive out to Tonlé Sap Lake, where a handcrafted riverboat will take you on a champagne cruise along the lake during the most beautiful time of the day (dependant on water levels, between March and July this cruise may not operate). Enjoy the quiet atmosphere on the water while sipping a good glass of Champagne and lounging in the comfortable sitting and relax areas. A truly romantic and private experience. 

    Have an excellent authentic Khmer farewell dinner at the Meric, Siem Reap.

    Day 6: Siem Reap - Departure.

    After breakfast. Travel to the “gem” of the Angkor area, the pretty temple of Banteay Srei. The so-called “Citadel of the Women” 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. Banteay Srei 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 population 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.
