Trip Grade

Easy - Suitable for travellers with an average level of fitness and independent mobility

Best Travel Time:

There are two seasons in Cambodia, wet and dry. From early May to the end of October is the rainy season. It often rains heavily but for short periods of time, mostly later in the day or during the night, after which the sun returns. The rain cools the air and freshens up the lush green of the rice plantations. It is cooler in the dry season, which runs from early November to early February, when it starts heating up again, building to the hottest month of April. So the best time for rain lovers is between May and October and from November to early March for those who like it dry and cool.

Trip Tips:
When visiting the temples, be sure to wear sturdy, comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking as well as sometimes climbing steep stairs.

: HRelax and completely unwind - experience a Khmer Traditional Massage at Bodia Spa and Night Markets open after 06:00PM where you can also do some gift shopping.

DAY 01: Arrival - Siem Reap
Upon arrival you will be met by our tour guide and the tour starts straight away. This afternoon we will set off on an exploration of Angkor Wat, the architectural and artistic masterpiece of the mighty Khmer Empire. Sunset at Phnom Bakheng or Pre Rup paints the temple in an golden-orange hue.

At dinner we will be accompanied by classical Apsara dancers depicting scenes from Khmer mythology.

DAY 02: Siem Reap - Angkor

You have the option of an early rise to view the spectacular sunrise over Angkor Wat revealing its timeless beauty, harmony and grandeur.

Return to the hotel for breakfast before continuing your exploration of the temples. Enter Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer empire through the Southern Gate where giant carvings of gods and demons flank each side of the entrance. Inside this great city, explore the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, Elephant Terrace and Terrace of Leper King. Feel the serenity that exudes from the stone face carvings of the Bayon and temple walls covered in emerald-green moss intertwined with roots which many deem the most charming of all, Ta Prohm.

In the afternoon, we will visit Angkor Silk Farm and Artisan D’ Angkor and its handicraft training school for young people. It was founded by Chantier-Ecoles, in cooperation with Provincial Office of Education, Youth and Sport.
