Siem Reap: Countryside Discovery Tour by Jeep

1. Siem Reap: Countryside Discovery Tour by Jeep

Your countryside jeep tour will begin with a pickup from your accommodation in Siem Reap as your guide gives a short introduction to the tour highlights of the tour. First, visit the War Museum Cambodia, the biggest war museum in the country. Here you’ll find a unique collection of war machines used in Cambodia, some of which seen action during World War II. Among the collection there are also many landmines and rare photographs from periods of war in Cambodia. You will then explore a Buddhist temple in order to understand the practice of Buddhism in Cambodia. Get a spiritual blessing by a monk and listen to a Khmer fortune-telling. Afterward, drive through tranquil villages, past rice paddies, gardens, and ponds, and watch as the local farmers cultivate, care for, and harvest their produce. These villages and dirt roads truly make for many photo opportunities. Next, you’ll visit the makers of bamboo rice cakes. Find out more about the processes involved in the making of this special countryside delicacy and, of course, you’re welcome to try them too. From here, continue to visit a local family who makes baskets and spend the next portion of the tour learning to make something with your hands.
