Meet a driver at your hotel in Siem Reap, then begin the hour-long trip to Beng Mealea, a fascinating temple that’s 25 miles (40 km.) beyond the main temple group of Angkor. You’ll have the option to explore on your own or with a guide—choose the option that suits you while booking.
Upon arrival at the temple, you’ll have the morning to explore courtyards and towers wrapped in thick tree roots, with Hindu and Buddhist motifs carved into delicate sandstone.
Pause for lunch at a restaurant near the temple complex (own expense), then continue to Tonle Sap Lake, whose shoreline winds through mangrove forests, marsh, and a series of small communities.
Travel to the lake-side fishing village of Kompong Pluck, the perfect place to see Tonle Sap Lake’s distinctive stilted architecture surrounded by lush mangroves. Enjoy some time to walk around Kompong Pluck, learning about daily life and culture in the fishing community, then make the return trip by boat across Tonle Sap Lake.
This full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Siem Riep.
