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. The most famous is the awe-inspiring Ankor Wat, which is 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.

Full itinerary

Day 1 Arrival Siem Reap - Angkor Wat tour

Upon arrival at Siem Reap airport, meet and start the sightseeing. (Standard hotel check-in time: 14h00)

Visit to the unique interior brick sculptures of Prasat Kravan, SrahSrang ("The Royal Baths"), which was once used for ritual bathing), BanteayKdei (surrounded by 4 concentric walls), and Ta Prohm, one of the area’s most beautiful temples. Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. The NeakPean is a fountain built in the middle of a pool (representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake) and Preah Khan temple, built by King Jayavarman VII. Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. However, unlike Ta Prohm, Preah Khan Temple is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation.

Day 2 Siem Reap - Angkor tour

Breakfast at the hotel

In the morning, visit the antique capital of Angkor Thom (12th century): the South Gate with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk; the Bayon Temple, unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara; the Phimeanakas; the Royal Enclosure; the Elephant Terrace; and the Terrace of the Leper King

In the afternoon, visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag, and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Enjoy the wonderful sunset from the top of Pre Rup Temple.

Day 4 Siem Reap - boat trip - Khmer Villages - Siem Reap (B/L)

Breakfast is served at the hotel.

In the morning, we will enjoy a boat ride on the Tonle Sap Lake at Kampong Phluk Village. This is the largest permanent fresh-water lake in Southeast Asia and flows into the Tonle Sap River, which joins the Mekong in Phnom Penh. We will see a fishermen's "floating village" with floating schools, a floating police station, etc. It is like a big village floating on the lake, and the "village" moves from place to place following water levels and currents.

In the afternoon, we will drive out of the city to the Khmer Village. You will go past rice paddies, palm trees, ox-drawn carts, and the odd ruin. A visit to a local family can also be included, which adds a unique personal touch to the whole excursion. Tour highlights
