Itinerary

Day 1: Beng Mealea and Tonle Sap lake

After having breakfast at your hotel, we will head to the famous floating village of Kampong Phluk. There, you can see firsthand what everyday life is like for the many families who make their living primarily from fishing. We enjoy a boat ride and observe the local life in the villages with their floating farms, schools, markets, and Buddhist temples. Our experienced tour guide will ensure there is no tourist scam, so you can relax and take pleasure in this private trip with confidence.

In the afternoon, we will have lunch at the local restaurant before heading to Beng Melea, the mysterious 12th-century temple in the middle of the jungle. This temple is heavily overgrown with vegetation, trees, lianas, and mosses. This temple is the most ruined stone temple in Angkor Park, as well as one of the largest temples on a grand scale in this historic site.

Optional Activity

If you have time after your temple tour, we highly recommend that you attend the Phare Circus Show, which is a performance by the well-known artists of the Phare Ponleu Selpak Artistic and Social Center in Battambang, who combine modern theater, music, dance, acrobatics, and other forms of entertainment. Please do not hesitate to contact us and ask us to book a ticket for you. The Circus starts at 8:00 p.m., and we may make a reservation for you in advance.

Day 2: Small tour temples with sunrise

You will be picked up from your hotel before sunrise. Visit one of the world's cultural heritage, Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world as you soak in the breathtaking sunrise. The magnificent architecture and charming light and shadow are even more memorable with the light morning mist that is most often present in this region of Cambodia. As your expert guide tells you stories about the bas-reliefs, they'll also provide insight into life during the height of the Khmer Empire. After visiting Angkor Wat, we will have breakfast nearby the temple, please ask your hotel to pack a breakfast box for you.

We will then head to Bayon temple, which has become a world-famous landmark and was built by King Jayavarman VII, who was also a Mahayana Buddhist. Bayon is also the only monastery that has survived to this day and was used as a place for worship, education, and administration. We will also explore Baphoun temple and the Terrace of Elephants before having lunch.

After that, visit the Ta Phrom Temple, which has been left in its original state and is partly overgrown with trees and huge roots. It was used as a backdrop for the film Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie.

You can expect to return to Siem Reap town in the late afternoon.

If you are keen to watch the Apsara Show, we recommend the Kulen II restaurant. We can help you to reserve a front-row seat with an unbeatable vantage point that will allow you to experience this magical event as if you were right in the middle of it.
