Full description
Day 1: Angkor Wat: Highlights and Sunrise Guided Tour Discover the magic and history of the Angkor Wan on a guided sunrise tour from Siem Reap. Get around this vast temple complex easily with a airconditioned bus or van. Have the option to choose from a group or private tour. See sights like the Ta Prohm and Bayon temples.  Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your accommodation early in the morning. Arrive at Angkor wat and admire the glow of the sunrise on the ancient temple complex and surrounding jungle. Explore the interior of the great temple at Angkor, from its corridors and central chambers to the upper terraces. Hear stories behind the bas-relief carvings, and gain insight into life during the height of the Khmer Empire. Continue to Angkor Thom City and the Bayon Temple. At the end of the afternoon, visit the jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm, one of the most atmospheric of all the temples in Angkor. Return to your accommodation in Siem Reap at the end of your tour. Day 2: Half Day Tonle Sap Lake The Tonle Sap one of the world’s most productive bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Take a boat trip to ‘Kampong Phluk’ a collection of three small fishing villages in an atmospheric flooded forest setting. Cruise through the village and see unique houses on stilts, and Cambodians at work in the floating forest. Our boat will meander slowly through forest canals, allowing you to catch glimpses of flora and fauna, and see a truly beautiful eco-system. Take the back roads back to town on this half-day tour in Siem Reap and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting, and harvesting, smoking fish, fish paste (prohoc making), and duck farming. Stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore. Visit a Buddhist monastery before heading home.
