Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive into Siem Reap

On arrival into Siem Reap, where you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel for the rest of the day at leisure.

Once you have checked into your room and freshened up, you may wish to wander into town and explore the streets and markets of Siem Reap. In the evening head to the famous Pub Street to grab a drink and a bite to eat, there’s always some excitement in the area.

Hotel: The Aviary Hotel, Siem Reap

Day 2 - Siem Reap

This morning, take a Remok tour – which is a local transport similar to a Tuk Tuk, to visit the magnificent Angkor Thom – last capital of the Khmers. Here you will see the Elephant Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King and the stunning Bayon temple.

Continue your exploration of the Angkor Temples at Ta Prohm, the temple that has been left largely in its natural state since its “re-discovery” by French explorers. Surrounded by jungle, its labyrinth of stone hallways is overgrown with the roots and limbs of massive banyan trees, which envelop the stone like tentacles.

This afternoon, your guide will drive you to visit Angkor Wat, arguably the largest religious building in the world, with a volume of stone equaling that of the Cheops pyramid in Egypt. It is unlike all the other Khmer temples in that it faces west, and is inspired by 12th Century Hinduism. Enjoy the knowledge and history your guide has, whilst watching the sunset in the evening.

Hotel: The Aviary Hotel, Siem Reap
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Siem Reap

This morning visit one of the more remote floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake, before continuing on to Beng Melea, the “Lotus Pond” Temple which has been left largely unrestored. There is time to wander around the exhibits at the Angkor National Museum, before a visit to Banteay Srei with its enchanting red sandstone temples.

Hotel: The Aviary Hotel, Siem Reap
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Phnom Penh

If there is time this morning, you may wish to head out to grab some final souvenirs. Say goodbye to this magical place and head for the airport for your short flight to Phnom Penh.

On arrival, you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel. After checking in, enjoy your time at leisure.

Hotel: White Mansion, Phnom Penh
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Phnom Penh

This morning, your guide will drive you to visit the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, a former high school. In the Pol Pot time they took this school as a prison for detentions and torture of prisoners.

Continue to visit Cheung Ek, a profoundly moving but saddening experience. Mass graves are still there today and over 8,000 skulls are displayed behind the glass of a memorial stupa, erected in 1988 to honour those who died.

This afternoon you will visit The Royal Palace, built in 1866 by King Norodom; the Palace is made up from a number of structures within a pagoda-style compound one of which is The Silver Pagoda.

Afterwards, visit the National Museum, a Khmer temple inspired building that houses the world’s largest collection of Khmer art sculptures, ceramics and bronzes from different periods of Cambodian history.

Hotel: White Mansion, Phnom Penh
Meals: Breakfast

Day 6 - Kep

Depart Phnom Penh towards Kep. Your first stop will be at Tonle Bati, a small lake that is a popular weekend spot for locals. Close by is the 12th century Ta Phrom temple which like its more famous name-sake in Siem Reap, was built in a similar style in the  12th century.

After a relaxing and interesting visit, it’s time to continue on to Kampong Trach Caves just outside of Kep. You are greeted by a beautiful tropical garden and several pagodas, Khmer and Vietnamese. The caves are quite spectacular, small shrines and stupas appear as you explore deeper into the mountain.

After lunch, you will drive the short distance to the coastal town of Kep and head to the famous Kep Crab market which is a hive of activity at this time of the day.

Hotel: Veranda Hotel, Kep
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 – Kampot

The next day take a 20 minute boat ride to the beautiful island of Koh Tonsai where you can explore the walking trails, simply relax on the beach or take to water to go snorkelling. Enjoy a Seafood barbeque lunch before heading back to the mainland and onto Kampot.

Should the weather prevent the boat crossing over to the island, a countryside tour will be taken instead which includes a boat ride on the Kampot River.

Hotel: Boutique Kampot Hotel, Kampot
Meals: Breakfast and BBQ lunch

Day 8 to 9 - Kampot to Koh Rong
