Our experienced tour guide shares the incredible history of Siem Reap’s ancient temples. Soak in the beauty of the Angkor Thom complex, the ancient Khmer empire’s last capital city. Within its walls, visit the many faces of Bayon and walk along the Elephant Terrace past Baphuon Temple and get up close to the incredible elephant sculptures.
After lunch at a local restaurant explore the shady ruins of Ta Prohm and the clash of nature and civilization where giant trees grow up between the walls. Finish the day at the famed Angkor Wat, one of the ancient wonders of the world.
Start day two of the Angkor Essentials package exploring Banteay Srey temple – the Citadel of the Women – home to some of the finest stone carvings in the world. Renowned for its pink-tinged stone and the outstanding condition of its well-preserved sculptures, it is small but incredible.
Nearby, at the Landmine Museum, learn about the horrific destruction landmines have caused to Cambodian lives and the great work this team is doing to remove them from the nation.
Then walk through an enclosure of rare and colourful butterflies at Banteay Srey Butterfly Farm – the largest butterfly display in South-East Asia. Beautiful and practical – this project aims to break the poverty cycle.
After lunch, experience life on the great Tonle Sap Lake, with a visit to one of the floating villages.
