5 Days Angkor in depth

Visit Siem Reap’s magnificent temples, abandoned centuries ago by the Khmer kingdom and now surrounded by its lush forests. Most famous is the awe-inspiring Ankor Wat – only now starting to reveal its hidden secrets. Ready your camera for the mysterious Ta Phrom, now engulfed by huge tree roots, as well as the giant smiling stone faces of the Bayon temple. With untouched jungles spanning the heart of the country, lush flora and fauna, and a culture untouched by the western world, we have only scratched the surface.
