Suo Sdei! Welcome to Cambodia. Upon arrival at the airport, you will meet our driver who will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel to check-in. You will be given time to rest before we start our walking tour of the city at 4 pm. We advise you to make your arrival time as early as possible so you can rest before the tour.

What better way to explore all this than with a local guide, keen to show you what our city looks like through their eyes? Not only will you learn a lot about this ancient city, but you will also make friends along the way and create memories to last a lifetime!

Day 2: Siem Reap, tour to the Ancient of Angkor Temples

After having breakfast at the hotel, It’s time for the main event with a whole day to enjoy a guided tour around the unforgettable Angkor temple complex. First, we will visit Angkor Wat, which is the most famous of all the Angkor temples. The temple, built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II contains three stories of libraries, galleries, and towers surrounded by a thick retaining wall and an imposing moat. Having your professional historian guide, you will be able to discuss in detail what you are looking to achieve from your time at the temples. You will then head out into the center of Angkor Thom and enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs. Have lunch at a local restaurant for exotic Khmer cuisine. Ta Prohm temple is your next stop before some leisure time in the late afternoon. Ta Prohm is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground, and creating one of the most photogenic and atmospheric temples of the entire Angkor site.
