Itinerary

Day 1: Siem Reap – Angkor Thom – Siem Reap
You will be greeted at the airport or picked up from your hotel (if you're already staying in Siem Reap) and transferred to the hotel you selected upon booking. Drop off your luggage and start out on your private, guided tour to the old capital of Angkor Thom in the afternoon.

Hop in a private remork (tuk-tuk) for the 15-minute ride to the South Gate and walk along the ancient city wall with your guide, stopping for photos of magnificent demons lining the causeway. Explore the lost temple of Prasat Chrung for approximately one hour before continuing to the 12th-century Bayon Temple, surrounded by 51 stone towers; each features four serene faces of a smiling bodhisattva.

Your knowledgeable guide then accompanies you the Terrace of the Elephants, the Royal Palace and the Terrace of the Leper King, where you can spend up to two hours. Hear fascinating stories about the Khmer kings that once ruled the ancient city.

After your private tour, spend your evening at your leisure. If you're feeling social, take a dip in the outdoor pool that hosts a happy hour. Otherwise head to your air-conditioned room and enjoy dinner and drinks ordered from the room service menu.

Overnight: Angkor Holiday Hotel or Sokha Angkor Resort (depending on option selected) in Siem Reap. From 2015, guests will stay at the Angkor Paradise Hotel

Day 2: Siem Reap – Ta Prohm – Angkor Wat– Banteay Srei – Pre Rup – Siem Reap (B, L)
Rise early and depart from your hotel approximately 30 minutes before sunrise, traveling by remork to the jungle-covered temple of Ta Prohm. The UNESCO-listed temple complex is one of the most popular at Angkor. The monuments have been left in the same condition in which they were discovered in the 19th century.

Return to your hotel for breakfast, after which you visit the world-famous Angkor Wat, another UNESCO World Heritage site and the best preserved of all the temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. Your private tour around this magnificent 12th-century structure lasts a few hours. Discover numerous surviving stone temples, once surrounded by wood palaces, public buildings and houses that have since disappeared.

Following lunch at a local restaurant in the afternoon, drive to the temple of Banteay Srei, built in the 10th century. Located 19 miles (32 km) from Siem Reap, the small UNESCO-listed temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, but is dubbed ‘Citadel of Women’ for its ornate sandstone carvings, a crown jewel of Angkor art.

After your 1.5-hour private tour, take some time to explore on your own and enjoy a provided lunch. When it's time to head back to Siem Reap, you might even catch the sunset descending behind prongs of Pre Rup.

Overnight: Angkor Holiday Hotel or Sokha Angkor Resort (depending on option selected) in Siem Reap. From 2015, guests will stay at the Angkor Paradise Hotel

Day 3: Siem Reap – Tonle Sap Lake – Siem Reap (B, L)
Following breakfast, take a 30-minute morning drive by remork to the edge of Siem Reap for a 15-minute ox-cart ride through the countryside. Then continue by air-conditioned vehicle to reach Cambodia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap. Classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the lake feeds the Mekong River during the dry season and swells during monsoons.

Board a local boat at the riverbank for an approximate 30-minute ride to Kompong Phluk, the largest floating village on the lake, where you’ll spend the rest of the morning. Here, observe the fascinating daily activities of the Cambodian villagers who reside along the shore, gaining a better sense of how their lives are shaped by the water’s rhythms.

After lunch at a local restaurant, the rest of your day is free to spend as you like.

Overnight: Angkor Holiday Hotel or Sokha Angkor Resort (depending on option selected) in Siem Reap. From 2015, guests will stay at the Angkor Paradise Hotel

Day 4: Siem Reap (B)
Enjoy breakfast and time at your leisure until you transfer to the airport for your onward flight. Check-out from your hotel is at noon, but you’re free to store your luggage if you’d like to sightsee on your own.
