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.

Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: PHNOM PENH (Dinner included)
Arrive in the bustling and energetic capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, and check-in hotel before setting out on a city tour to visit the National Museum and Royal Palace built in 1866 by King Norodom.
Dinner at local restaurant. Overnight in Phnom Penh.

Day 2: PHNOMPENH - SIEM REAP (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner included)
Breakfast at hotel. Then we get flight to Siem Reap and check-in hotel.
Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor temple complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the mysterious royal city, Angkor Thom, and visit the intricately - carved and awe - inspiring Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat - one of the world’s most impressive ruins. Watch the sunset over the jungle from the ruins of an ancient temple.

After lunch at local place we visit floating and fishing villages in Tonle Sap Great Lake, which one of the world’s most productive bodies of fresh water. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting myriad water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythms of the water. This ecosystem of extraordinary biological richness and balance between humans and nature was recently designated as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Back to town to visit Artisans D’Angkor (wood and stone carving) where you will discover the traditional Khmer techniques used for stone and wood carving and old market.

After breakfast in hotel, visit the unique brick sculptures of Prasat Kravan, and continue to Ta Prohm. One of the area's most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been left relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Its appeal lies in the fact that, unlike the other monuments of Angkor, it was abandoned and swallowed by the jungle, looking very much the ways most of the Angkor temples appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. Visit as well Takeo, Thommanon and Chau Say Tevoda.

Lunch at local restaurant, after your rest visit to the Preah Khan temple; built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Continue your visit to Neak Pean, a fountain (built in the middle of a pool and representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake), Ta Som, Eastern Mebon, guarded at its corner by stone figures of harnessed elephants, some of which are still in a reasonable state of preservation, and Pre Rup, the mountain-temple until sunset.
