Itinerary

Day 1: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Upon arrival you will meet our local representative who will take you to your hostel.

The rest of the day is free for you to relax or explore exciting Siem Reap!

Take a dip in the hostel pool or get a massage to relax after your travelling.

Afterwards take a stroll around the bustling old Market and Pub Street area and explore or head back to your hostel as tomorrow is a very early start!

Day 2: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Depart at 5:30AM in the morning for the sunrise at the Angkor temples in Tuk Tuks.

You will arrive at the mystical Srah Sarong or “King’s Bath” just in time for sunrise over the water and temples (Do not forget your camera as the views here at sunrise are once in a lifetime!).

After the beautiful sunrise experience, head across the road and be first at the fabulous jungle temple of Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is particularly amazing in the early morning when all you can hear are the sounds of the jungle, before the crowds arrive.

The Angkor Archaeological Park is visually, architecturally and artistically breath-taking and one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia, if not the world. You could spend weeks exploring the ruins, but on this day tour, you will be lucky enough to see all the highlights including an optional 1km walk through the jungle to the hidden temple, here you will visit a few more well known, interesting temples.

After taking a break for lunch and some well deserved cold drinks, the late afternoon is put aside for a visit to the main temple, Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is one of mankind’s greatest achievements, and the intricate carvings at the temple of Angkor Wat demonstrate the skill of the Khmer builders.

To round off a great day exploring, this evening we invite you to join a small sunset BBQ/light dinner with beers at a local Khmer home.

Day 3: Siem Reap, Cambodia

This morning you will travel to Phnom Kulen, the sacred mountain that was the birthplace of the Khmer empire.

It was here that Jayavarman II proclaimed independence from Java in 802, setting the stage for the glories of the Angkor-era that was to follow. This mountain plateau was the capital of the Khmer empire before it relocated south to Hariharalaya, known today as Roluos.

Wat Preah Ang Thom is a focus of pilgrimage for Khmers during religious festivals and the large reclining Buddha carved into a huge sandstone boulder here offers spectacular views across the lush jungle. Nearby are impressive riverbed rock carvings, including innumerable lingas and representations of Shiva and Vishnu. There is a classic waterfall further downstream which is the perfect place to cool off after exploring, and nearby is a small, jungle-clad temple called Prasat Krau Romeas.

Enjoy lunch at local restaurant on your own budget before continuing to Srah Damrei on the back of a motorbike. And around 3:30pm we go back to your vehicle and drive back to Siem Reap.

Free relax as your leisure time.

Overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 4: Siem Reap - Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Upon arrival in Phnom Penh you will transfer to your hostel and have the rest of the day to explore.

We recommend visiting Phnom Penh’s charming riverside. The riverside becomes alive at night time with families, food stalls, dancing and entertainment, you can even join an exercise class if you are feeling energetic!

Along the waterfront there are also many good restaurants and bars to check out.

Day 5: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This morning you will meet your guide at the hostel to begin this unique tour where you will discover and reveal Phnom Penh.

Visit Phsar Kandal morning market and try some of the local delicacies and mouth-watering street-eats. Next, head to the old French Quarter which is home to fine colonial architecture; while some buildings have been gorgeously restored, others beautifully decay.

Move on to visit more fantastic sights such as Wat Phnom, a Buddhist temple, an old post building and disused train station, Cambodia’s largest market, Psah Thmei, all while enjoying beautiful flowers, food, antiques and more.

From city exploration, it is now time to pay respect to the dark history of the Cambodian Genocide. Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S-21), was once a high school and was converted into a detention and torture center during the Khmer Rouge regime. Tuol Sleng remains to remind and educate all people about this dark time in Cambodian history.

After a long and exciting morning sightseeing you will return to your hostel and the rest of the afternoon is free to kick back and relax.

We recommend checking out some different parts of the city and seeing some more of Phnom Penh! Maybe try the super trendy Bassac Lane for cool bars and great food.
