4 Day tours
The 4 Day Tour allows you to experience some of the best that Angkor has to offer, and gives you the added opportunity to explore one of the local floating villages.
Day 1 – 6.45 am Pick up at Hotel by Ac/ Car
Going up to the ruined temple of Ta Phrom, one of the Buddhist Temples built by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th or 13th centuries for his mother.
Then we’ll head through the forest over to the north Gate of Taphrom to see the four faces of the gate hidden by the trees.
From there, we will drive to Banteay Kdei Temple, also built by King Jayavarman VII in the early 12th & 13th centuries. We will spend the rest of the morning exploring this temple.
Lunch at Your Hotel and Afternoon Pick Up at 2:30pm by Ac/ Car again
This afternoon, we’ll explore around the ancient City of Angkor Thom. At our first stop at Palilay, Wat Tempranam we’ll have the opportunity to see a monks blessing. From Wat Temprannam, we’ll go to the Victory Gate, followed by the Terrace of the Elephants, the Terrace of the Leper king, Prasat Sour Prat and from there, we’ll walk along the ancient wall of Angkor Thom city to Gate of the Dead. From there, it’s a short drive to the stone smiling faces in the walls of the Temple called Bayon. And then, before we finish our day, on the way home stop at the south gate of Angkor Thom for a magical sunset view.
Day 2 – 4:45 am Pickup at your Hotel by AC/Car.
This morning, we’ll get up early to watch and shoot sunrise along rice (paddy) fields with lines of palm trees. We’ll also visit a Cambodian family cooking food over their traditional open fire and making sugar palm and we’ll be able to photograph them. When it’s time for breakfast, we’ll stop at a local cafe and afterwards, we’ll set off to visit Chuev Srey Vibol, a rarely visited temple away from the crowds where we can photograph monks lighting candles and incense in their orange or red robes amongst the temple ruins, with the vivid green moss and tree roots in the background. We’ll head back home for a break over lunch and to escape the heat of the day
Lunch break at Hotel or town area.
Afternoon- Pick up from the Hotel at 2.40 pm.
This afternoon, we’ll take you to Tonle Sap Lake – the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia. It feeds the river Tonle Sap which is one of the most important rivers in Cambodia. During the wet season, the lake grows to 6 times its size, and the Tonle Sap river which usually flows into the sea reverses direction during the wet season. When it does, the houses on the edge of it would flood, so they have built them out of bamboo, to float. We’ll visit the floating village of Kampong Phluk or Kampong Khleang where you can see the stilt houses which are up to 6 meters high. In the dry season, the village looks like a regular village, just floating high in the air. We’ll take a private boat out to see the locals, going about their daily lives, going to school, shopping from boat to boat on the water, and fishing and watch the sunset.
Day 3 – 4:30 am Pick Up at your Hotel by a/c Car
This morning, we’ll get up early again, this time to drive two and half hours north of Siem Reap to Kok ker Temple, one of Cambodia’s most remote and inaccessible temples. A favourite place is at Prasat Pram where the temple is built in the shape of a pyramid and where we can take photos of Buddhist Monks and then we’ll head to Prasat Thom. Then we’ll find somewhere to stop for lunch.
After lunch we’ll have an hour’s drive back to to the ruined jungle Temple Beng Mealea, and climb over piles of finely chiselled sandstone blocks to see some of its intricate carvings. We’ll finish our day, driving back to your hotel through the villages in the countryside where local families go about their day.
Day 4 – 4..30 am Pick up at the Hotel by a/c Car
This morning, we’ll get out to Angkor Wat in time for photographing sunrise with its five towers reflecting in in the water lily filled moat. After sunrise, we’ll go to the spectacular antique ruins and the most beautiful carvings at Banteay Srey Temple. From Banteay Srey we’ll drive out through lush green countryside to the largest Buddhist Temple – called Preah Khan.
Lunch break at Hotel or in town.
Afternoon – Pick up at 3.00 pm.
This afternoon, we’ll go back to explore Angkor Wat and find the perfect spots to enjoy the afternoon’s golden sunlight.
