Day 2 : A tour of the Angkor Archaeological Park

Meet Cambodia’s epic past with a tour of the Angkor Archaeological Park. One of the most important historical sites in the entire region of Southeast Asia, the City of Temples will surely amaze and astound even the most experienced traveller.

Built between the 9th-15th centuries, each complex was at one point the capital of the Khmer empire.  Your tour will begin at Angkor Thom, famous for its carved faces pointing out in either direction on top of massive, 75 ft (23 m) towers.Within is the mysterious Bayon Temple, the Mona Lisa of Southeast Asia, located at the exact center of Angkor Thom, with a total of 216 carved faces.

Stops will also include the Elephant Terrace, the Leper Terrace, before moving on to the popular Ta Prohm, recognizable from the film Tomb Raider.

Visit the magnificent Angkor Wat. In the afternoon sun, it seems as if the entire complex is sparkling. This masterpiece is the largest city in the Angkor Park and is considered one of the best preserved ancient monuments in the world due to its perfect composition, balance and artistic design.

Behold the unsurpassed beauty as the sun slowly sets behind Angkor Wat, and then transfer back to your hotel.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 : Explore the citadel of women and take a small boat to Tonle Sap Lake

A delicious breakfast awaits you before the day tour which will further delve into the history and culture of the region.  A 1-hour drive north will bring you to Banteay Srei, the citadel of women. Constructed from pink sandstone, Banteay Srei is unlike any other temple in the entire Angkor Archaeological Park, which is also renowned for its detailed classical Khmer art carvings. Afterwards, we will visit Banteay Samre, another temple near to Banteay Srei and notable for its well-preserved libraries.

Board a small boat and discover the largest freshwater lake in the entire region of Southeast Asia, the Tonle Sap. As the boat glides along, visit a floating fishing village and observe the daily local life before returning to Siem Reap town.

The rest of the day is free for your leisure.

Day 4 : Have a quick flight to the capital, Phnom Penh

After breakfast transfer to Siem Reap Airport for a quick 40-minute flight to the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. Named after Wat Phnom, a Buddhist temple situated on the tallest hill in the center of the city, the city was chosen as the capital by royalty in 1432, and in 1865 after much back and forth, became the permanent capital of the kingdom.

Stroll along the Sisowath Quay Riverwalk and enjoy the wide boulevards flanked by leafy palm trees on either side until we reach the Royal Palace, gleaming in all of its golden glory. As it is the official residence of the King and Queen of Cambodia, most of the complex is off-limits; however, there is still plenty of opportunities to visit famous sites such as the Throne, Moonlight Pavilion, and of course, the Silver Pagoda, home to the Emerald Buddha and 90 kg solid gold Buddha encrusted with diamonds and jewels.

As the sun begins to set, board your riverboat for a stunning sunset dinner and cocktail cruise along the Mekong and Tonle Sap River. Enjoy a different vantage point of the glittering Royal Palace as the boat gently glides by, and watch the twinkling Phnom Penh skyline as you savor delicious Khmer food and beverages.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Visited: Phnom Penh, Siem Reap

Accomodation: Queen Grand Boutique Hotel and Spa

Day 5 : Dive into the history of Cambodia in Phnom Penh

This morning we will learn about the recent dark history of Cambodia by visiting the infamous sites left from Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The tour will begin with a 45-minute drive to one of the most infamous Killing Fields, Chuong Ek. Just one of the 20,000 mass grave sites found within the country, Chuong Ek is now a Buddhist memorial to the many lives that were lost between 1975 and 1979.

After your visit finishes, journey back to Phnom Penh and stop at Tuol Sleng Prison, a former school-turned torture center and only 1 of the 150 execution centers used by the Khmer Rouge regime. Nowadays, it is a Genocide Museum dedicated to the victims and survivors and holds many artifacts kept by the Khmer Rouge such as photographs, clothing, preserved prison cells, and other items.

The rest of your day is free to discover the city on your own. For those that love history, the National Museum of Cambodia, which holds the world’s leading collection of Khmer art and sculptures and Wat Phnom, a Buddhist temple built in 1373 and the founding site of the city, are perfect ways to spend the afternoon while shoppers can visit the Russian Market or Phsar Thmei to peruse the local wares.

About this tour

  • This itinerary is a privately guided tour through major highlights of Cambodia’s history and culture
  • An airport arrival and departure transfer is included. Please provide your flight details at the time of booking, or at a minimum of 15 days prior to travel
  • This package requires a visa to Cambodia
  • Cambodia is a conservative country so take care to pack loose, lightweight, long clothing to be respectful in religious monuments and keep cool in the predominantly hot climate
  • The stories and history shared at the Killing Fields and Genocide Museum are confronting and many travellers will find them upsetting. This is an important part of Cambodia's recent history that we feel is important for travellers to know. If you would prefer not to join these activities your leader can recommend some optional alternatives
  • Consider adding a beach extension on day 6 to Sihanoukville or if you’re feeling the urge to jet-set, Phuket in Thailand
