Itinerary in Details
Upon arrival at Siem Reap International Airport, you will be welcomed by your driver and transferred to your hotel for check-in.
At the hotel, you will be greeted by one of our management team and it is the opportunity to go through your itinerary again before it gets started.
Then you will have the rest of the day free to explore the city as you wish.
We depart town as we venture towards an unspoiled floating community called Kampong Phluk; known for its stilted-house villages and flooded forest. Along the way we will stop to have a look around the Rolous Market. This is a great chance to glimpse the everyday life of locals selling indigenously grown vegetables, different fish species and other local produce. We will also see one of the bridges on the Rolous River, built during the period of French dominance in Cambodia. We then board a boat and begin sailing down the river, eventually arriving at the floating community of Kampong Phluk where we will experience a truly unique way of life. Within the community you will pass schools and houses standing on 8 to 10m high stilts, as well as fish farms and an island pagoda. As we venture beyond the villages we will head into the flooded forest; home to some of Cambodia’s water-bird species. The boat will then set off for the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia, Tonle Sap , where we will explore before heading back to the mainland and returning you back to your hotel for your lunch and rest of the afternoon free.
In the evening, you will get picked from your hotel at 4:30pm for the dinner with Apsara show arranged for you.
This is the moment you can’t forget.
Rising early, at 8 am, you journey by jeep to the enigmatic and enchanting temple of Bayon. By beginning our tour here, we can avoid the crowds and see the temple at its quietest. This temple, located in the heart of Angkor Thom, is an eccentric expression of Cambodia’s most celebrated king’s creative genius and inflated ego.
Its 54 towers are each adorned with the four faces of Avalokiteshvara (Buddha of Compassion), who bears a striking resemblance to the king himself. These enormous heads look below every side, exuding power and control with a hint of compassion, simply the mix needed to keep a hang on such a vast empire.
You continue your expedition amongst the walled city of Angkor Thom, the work of art of King Jayavarman VII. Following the Chams’ occupation of Angkor from 1177 to 1181, the new king decided to construct an impregnable fortress in the center of his empire. The causeway is lined by a complex bridge depicting the churning of the ocean of milk from Hindu folklore in which devas (gods) and asuras (devils) play tug of war with a naga (seven-headed snake) to get the elixir of immortality.
Within Angkor Thom, our next stop is the Terrace of the Leper King. This intricately sculpted platform was the royal crematorium, and the statue, which was originally thought to be the leper king, is now figured to be Yama, the god of death.
We proceed along the Terrace of Elephants, which was originally used as a viewing gallery for the king to command parades, performances, and traditional sports. The Baphuon temple, one of the most beautiful in Angkor, is located at the southern end and was built during the reign of Uditayavarman in the 11th century. It has gone through a huge renovation and is now once again open for visiting.
You then move on next to the Mother of all temples, Angkor Wat, believed to be the world’s largest spiritual building. This temple is the perfect combination of symbolism and balance and stands as a huge source of pride to all Khmers. We begin by deciphering the mysteries of the bas-reliefs, which depict Hindu mythology as well as the splendors of the Khmer empire. These intricate carvings stretch for nearly one kilometer and are a contender for the title of the world’s longest unbroken work of art. We then proceed to the upper levels of the inner sanctuary, following in the footsteps of the faithful and the destructive who came before us.
The final steps up to Angkor’s upper terrace are the steepest of all, as pilgrims used to stoop on their way to meet the Gods. We have finally arrived at the pinnacle and sacred heart of Angkor Wat, a perfect combination of spirituality and symmetry that few moments can match. After that, we head to the Ta Prohm temple, which has been left to the elements. The temple acts as a significant reminder that, while empires rise and fall, nature’s riotous power marches on, indifferent to human history’s dramas. The tentacle-like tree roots that French explorer Henri Mouhot discovered in 1860 are slowly strangling the remaining stones that man first conquered nature to build.
We will then pause for a late lunch at a local restaurant (Lunch is on the clients’ own account) before continuing to our final temple – Banteay Kdei. The name translates to `Citadel of Chambers,’ and as the temple exists on one level, it is easy to thoroughly explore the towers and corridors as well as their beautiful carvings.
The temple’s construction had changed many times since its original plans causing a slight lack of consistency in its design. That being said, the final outcome of the temple is superb. As it is far less visited than its neighboring main sites, Banteay Kdei offers a serene and peaceful end to our exploration.
After the tour, we will then transfer you back to your hotel.
In the afternoon at 4:30pm, we will be picked up once again for sunset to enjoy a romantic evening with the people you love; refresh yourself at night of the lovely at Tonle Oum under a remarkable sunset best cocktail and mixed drink recipes.
This is a day you make sure not to forget.
Today you are free to enjoy your time at the hotel to swim or whatever you would like to.
We will pick you up in the afternoon for a romantic dinner under the stars, surrounded by green tropical nature.
This morning, you will leave Siem Reap then travel onward to Cambodia’s capital city – Phnom Penh. Along the way, you will stop shortly in Skuon (commonly known as ‘Spiderville’). There, if your stomach permits it, you will be able to try the local delicacy of deep-fried tarantula!
Upon your arrival in Phnom Penh, you will be transferred to your hotel for check-in. Then you will continue to enjoy a Cyclo tour around Phnom Penh’s key sites, such as Wat Phnom, Post Office, the Central Market, the National Museum, Independence Monument, and the Royal Palace.
This morning, we will pick you up for your tour at the Royal Palace complex and attached ‘Silver Pagoda’ compound consisting of several buildings, structures, and gardens, all located within 500×800 meter walled grounds overlooking a riverfront park.
The high sculpted wall and the golden spired Chanchhaya Pavilion, which mark the approach to the Palace, stand out against the riverfront skyline. The high walls of the Palace grounds muffle street noises, and the various Royal buildings rise like ornate islands from the tranquil, manicured tropical gardens. The silver pagoda is also recognized as the Emerald Buddha Pagoda or Wat Preah Kaew.
Then we will continue to the infamous Tuol Sleng Museum (S-21), where you can learn about the turbulent recent history of Cambodia. You will be sent back to your hotel after the tour.
In the evening, you will enjoy a lovely sunset cruise down the Mekong.
Today you are free to explore the capital until you get picked up from your hotel and taken to the airport for your return flight home.
