START Phnom Penh, Tonle Sap Lake, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap FINISH
The astounding temples of Angkor are a monumental experience, a sight to witness at least once in your life. On this short journey, watch the sun coming up over the majestic temples near the lesser-used eastern gate to avoid the crowds of tourists. Further afield, uncover the ruins of tree covered Ta Prohm and imposing Bayon, as well as the highlights of Cambodia’s Capital, Phnom Penh.
DAYS 1-2: PHNOM PENH
On arrival in Phnom Penh, transfer to your hotel. Get to know your travelling companions and tour leader at welcome drinks and a tour briefing on the evening you arrive. Phnom Penh offers up an array of adventures. Gain an insight into local life at the central market. The National Museum is a fascinating look at Cambodia’s history with art and artefacts dating back to prehistoric times, while the Royal Palace and the silver-lined floor at the Silver Pagoda astound in their majesty. Reflect on the Khmer Rouge legacy at Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields and gain fascinating insight into Cambodia’s confronting past, and then learn about the plight of local street children and what you can do to help at the ChildSafe Centre.

DAYS 3-5: SIEM REAP
A short flight brings you to Siem Reap, gateway to the incredible temples of Angkor. Watch the dusk sunlight glowing on the colourful floating villages as you glide across Tonle Sap Lake by boat. Steal through the jungle, your path illuminated only by torchlight, and enter the little-used eastern gate of Angkor Wat to watch the sun’s first light shining down on the magnificent temple - an experience you will never forget. A tuk-tuk ride proves an entertaining way to travel between temples, ideal for taking photos. Later, the magnificent stone heads of the Bayon will amaze, before you amble through the atmospheric ruins of tree-covered Ta Prohm. On your last day, enjoy free time until your departure transfer.
