7-Days – Departs Daily on a Private Basis; Phnom Penh, Battambang, Siem Reap
This 6-day tour offers travelers a well-rounded journey from the capital Phnom Penh to the temples of Siem Reap. On the way, you’ll visit Battambang, a former trading post for Thai, Khmer and French traders, with an interesting architectural legacy of French colonial mansions and elaborate Buddhist temples.
Proposed programme: Your journey begins in Phnom Penh, where you’ll see the indelible Khmer Rouge memorial sites Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields. You’ll also travel to the picturesque old capital of Phnom Udong, its beautifully-adorned temples nestled in greenery. Today you’ll spend time getting to know your host city. Browse a comprehensive collection of Khmer art at the National Museum of Cambodia, see the Royal Palace, get active with the Cambodian Living Arts organization’s dance classes and enjoy sundowners and cerebral chatter at the Foreign Correspondents Club. The rural city of Battambang is a former trading hub for French, Thai and Khmer traders. You’ll have the chance to attend a Khmer boxing match (the origin of Muay Thai), visit centuries-old temples and enjoy the green countryside and fresh air aboard the “bamboo train”. People come from around the world to visit the Angkor temple complex and on this tour you have your own guide – to take you through the chambers of Angkor Thom and Bayon Temple. After exploring these architectural marvels, you can haggle with the locals at the old markets. In the cool morning air, you’ll visit the 10th-century Banteay Srei temple, built to worship the Hindu God, Shiva. Finish your Cambodian journey with an unforgettable experience – watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat. After exploring this immense temple, buckle up for a thrilling helicopter tour offering a bird’s-eye view of the complex. For dinner on this final night, a special treat – a private meal at Angkor Athvea, a 12th-century Hindu temple just outside Siem Reap. Say goodbye to this Cambodia and the little piece of paradise you have been enjoying. Transfer to Siem Reap airport for the next leg of your travels, either home or to your next destination.
