DAY 2



TEMPLE TOURING & FLOATING VILLAGES (B)

This morning we explore the mysterious ruins of Beng Mealea, thought to be a blueprint for Angkor Wat,
not only the most interactive temple, with crumbling stone blocks acting as stairs to the temple’s man subterranean chambers, but it is also the most fun temple to explore. This nearly thousand-year-old temple covers several acres of jungle terrain and is made up of a handful of libraries and courtyard where you can experience a true Indiana Jones moment.

In the afternoon head East of Siem Reap on the northern edge of Tonle Sap lake lies the village of Kompong Khleang, where locals live on stilted houses rising up from the ground. Travel by traditional boat through this authentic village gives you the chance to observe the daily life up close, heading out to the vast expanse of Tonle Sap where you will appreciate the immensity of this fascinating waterway.

(guide, driver, boat & entrance fees)

After breakfast at the hotel start your temple exploration of the UNESCO world heritage complex inside the stunning walled city of Angkor Thom with Gates, flanked by the stone statues of gods and demons, you find yourself in an ancient world of massive stone faces and evocatively striking temples. We'll take in the enigmatic Bayon, the mighty Baphoun Temple, Phimeanakas and the royal Palace enclosure, the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King.

Next stop is Ta Prohm, easily the most atmospheric and a highlight for anyone visiting Angor, a haven for any photography enthusiasts. A temple where you will love to linger, swallowed by the jungle looks very much in the same state as when the French explorers stumbled upon it more than a century ago.

In front of the magnificent Angkor Wat is perfect for lunch or a break during your day trip to Temples, refresh you with fresh fruits juice and shakes, and savor some delicious Khmer, Asian or International dishes (own cost).

As you enter the main causeway of Angkor Wat and start the long walk to the main temple, feast your eyes on the sight of this imposing structure. Discover its many galleries, libraries, pavilions, courtyards and ponds full of water, carved bas-reliefs that tell the ancient Hindu legends of Ramayana and victorious Khmer battles. Climb to the holiest sanctuary at the summit of the temple, where you are rewarded with fantastic views across the entire complex and beyond.

The temple tour itinerary is flexible and may be adjusted by your local guide after consultation with you. Weather, festivals, your interests and energy levels all have a bearing on which temples to visit and in what order.

This bustling city still retains a colonial feel with fine French architecture, wide boulevards and riverside promenade, boasting a heady mix of Restaurants and shops.

This evening perhaps indulge in a blind massage or take a leisurely walk along the riverside before sunset cocktails and dinner at the Foreign Correspondents Club or you may wish to take an evening stroll along the river front to see how the locals enjoy the cool night climate. This is a fun way to interact with the locals, but best beware of pickpockets or bag snatching in crowded situations.

There is a lot of poverty in Phnom Penh and with poverty comes desperation which leads to theft, so it is extremely important that you take care of your belongings. There is no need to feel unsafe because there is virtually zero violence, just opportunistic theft. Ladies, please ensure your bag has a thoroughly sturdy strap, which cannot be cut and is worn across the body. Men, please put your wallets in pockets that have a zip or button.
