Morning: 8.00 am Pick up from hotel or your preferable timing:
Today After breakfast, explore the incredible jungle temple complex of the Angkor period, whose history covers some 600 years, from the 9th through to the 15th centuries. Obvious choices are the magnificent complex of Angkor Wat, one of the most incredible of the jungle sites, and the wonderfully overgrown and atmospheric Ta Prohm, set amidst tangled tree roots and lush jungle and famous as the setting for some of the Lara Croft film Tomb Raider
Afternoon: relax for lunch then we continue our exploration with a visit to the fortified city of Angkor Thom, which was built at the end of the 12th century is enclosed by a square wall with five monumental gates decorated with stone elephant trunks. Originally, crocodiles inhabited the moat and huge statues of 54 different gods and demons protected each gate. The city contains another of Angkor’s true gems – the Bayon. Although not as impressive as Angkor Wat from a distance, the Bayon is nevertheless incredible for its maze of corridors, gothic style towers, and magical central temples. We’ll explore the Terrace of the Elephants and the Leper King, the Baphuon and Phimeanakas.
Evening Activities: Highly recommend you to have dinner with Cambodia traditional shows at Kulen II restaurant (12$ per person for dinner + shows which start from 6:30 pm to 8:45 pm).

DAY 3: Visit Chong Khneas floating village on Tonle Sap & City Tour include Angkor National Museum
Morning: 8.00AM Pick up from hotel or your preferable timing:
After breakfast we set off into the countryside, the drive is very picturesque, taking us through rural Cambodia, past vast rice fields and through stilted villages, towards the vast Tonle Sap Lake. Here we board our charter boat for a leisurely cruise through the fascinating floating village of Chong Kneas, where we see floating houses, riverside markets and an array of locally made boats. Then continue to Wat Thmey (Killing Field) the alive monastery where a large Stupa memorial can be found. The stupa has glass sides filled with the skulls and bones of those who died during the Khmer Rouge. These have been diligently gathered by local residents in memory of their families and friends. The mass of bones and skulls at the stupa shows the cruel behavior of the Khmer Rouge at the time.
Afternoon: relax for lunch then we continue our visit with the shrine of Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm. Said to represent two Angkorian princesses, these sacred statues were originally housed at the Preah Poan gallery in Angkor Wat but were moved all over Siem Reap for their protection from invaders, eventually settling here in 1990. Locals throng here to pray for luck, especially newlyweds, and it is an atmospheric place to visit around dusk, as the incense smoke swirls around. Next to the shrine are the tall trees of the Royal Gardens, home to a resident colony of Fruit bats (also known as flying foxes) that take off to feed on insects around dusk. We end the day at Angkor National Museum, a state-of-the-art showpiece on the Khmer civilization and the majesty of Angkor. Displays are themed by era, religion, and royalty as visitors move through the impressive galleries. After a short presentation, visitors enter the Zen-like Gallery of a Thousand Buddhas, which has a fine collection of images. Other exhibits include the pre-Angkorian periods of Funan and Chenla; the great Khmer kings; Angkor Wat; Angkor Thom; and the inscriptions.

We highly recommend this tour if you are really interested in the history and culture of Cambodia. I had a great guide, Mr. Sophan. His knowledge and personality made for a great and fun filled tour. From the lively city of Siem Reap to the breathtaking temples, and on to being infused with the locals in the floating village of Chong Khneas. This tour was a new adventure each day.
Out tour guide Ratin and driver Sopheak were phenomenal and they did an amazing job. Ratin took us to four amazing temples and Phnom Kulen waterfall, explained the history along the way, and knew all the best photo ops. Lunch was a real treat in an authentic Cambodian restaurant. Highly recommend!!
