We spent our day cycling through small trail rain forests visit Temple of Angkor and along gate of Angkor Thom. This is a very interesting way to discovery the small circuit. We start our day after breakfast by cycle from the hotel toward the check-point then continue to the Mother of all temples, Angkor Wat is believed to be the world’s largest religious building built in order to dedicate to the Hindu god, Vishnu. We explore Angkor Wat by foot. Afterwards, we cycle from the eastern side of Angkor along the north mod and through remote villages dotted with palm trees and rice paddies.

Day 3: Siem Reap – Siem Reap – Angkor Wat Sunrise. Big Circuit including Ta Promh & Banteay Srey. (B/-/-)
Rise early for sunrise over the Mother of all temples, Angkor Wat which is believed to be the world’s largest religious building. Then, we head to the temple mountain of Pre Rup, before driving further north to Banteay Srei, Angkor’s ultimate art gallery. This petite pink temple is the jewel in the crown of Angkor-era sculpture. The elaborate carvings here are the finest found in Cambodia and the name translates as ‘Fortress of the Women’, thanks to the intricate detail here, considered too fine for the hands of a man. Then, we head back to to the famous Ta Promh, embraced by the roots of enormous fig trees and gigantic creepers. Visit Ta Phrom that was built in 12th century by the famous King Jayavarvan VII indicated to his mother. The ruined Ta Prohm (Tomb Raider) temple was made famous by Angelina Jolie. This temple has been left to the forces of nature by archaeologists as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhot in 1860, many parts of its structure being embraced by the roots of gigantic trees, giving the ruin a special atmosphere. Then, we explore the frequently visited Banteay Samre. Built by King King Suryavarman II, the same king who built Angkor Wat, the structure with its high temple tower has undergone extensive restoration. In the afternoon we visit Neak Pean, a small island temple situated in the middle of an artificial pool, which translates as “intertwined serpents” due the coiled serpents encircling the base of the structure. We then continue on to Preah Khan or “sacred sword”, a huge monastic complex which features elaborate carvings.
+ Accommodation: Hotel in Siem Reap

Day 4: Siem Reap – Tonle Sap Lifestyle at Komong Kleang and Beng Mealea. (B/-/-)
After breakfast, we travel southeast out of Siem Reap to one of the largest and least-visited villages on the Tonle Sap Lake, Kompong Khleang, about 55km from Siem Reap. It’s population of 10,000 all make a living from the fishing industry. We explore the canals (wet season) or streets (dry season) of this incredible town. In the wet season, the houses appear to be floating, as water laps at the verandas, but in the dry season towering stilts are revealed, the houses almost like wooden skyscrapers. You can hire a boat and cruise into the open water of the great lake to see a small floating village and learn some more about this incredible natural flood barrier.

After lunch break in a local restaurant, we explore the lost temple of Beng Mealea, the titanic of temples, a slumbering giant lost for centuries in the forests of Cambodia. It is the most accessible of Angkor’s lost temples, a mirror image of Angkor Wat, but utterly consumed by the voracious appetite of nature. Constructed by Suryavarman II in the 12th century, the builder of Angkor Wat, the forest has run riot here and it is hard to get a sense of the monument’s shape amid the daunting ruins. Returing to your hotel in Siem Reap.
+ Accommodation: Hotel in Siem Reap

Day 5: Siem Reap to Battambang. (B/-/-)
Today, our journey continues to south the rice bold of Cambodia which is located on the other side of Tonle Sap Lake. Due September – January, the water level of Stung Sangke River is deep enough to allow boat to run. This means we can travel to Battambang by boat. This will let you experience typical Cambodian landscapes to the historic riverside city Battambang. Else, we travel by road En route, we stop at the rural district of Puok, home to the Artisans d’Angkor silk weaving project. We visit a working silk farm where it is possible to learn about all aspects of the production process. We make another stop at Preah Net Preah district to see unique stone carving by locals. Lunch along the road, arrive to Battambang and check in to your hotel.

At around 3:30pm, we drive to Phnom Sampov, a sacred mountain dotted with interesting pagodas and stupas. There is also a moving memorial to Khmer Rouge victims who were thrown into one of the many caves in this holy mountain. After your visit on top of this mountain, we come down and witness millions of bats flying out of their cave at 5:30 – 6pm.
+ Accommodation: Hotel in Battambang
Optional Activities

  • Battambang – Phare Ponleu Selpak Centre – USD12

Day 6: Battambang Lifestyles. (B/-/-)
We drive to Wat Kor district to visit a local village and learn about rural life in Cambodia, rice harvest, fruit farming and how the sugar palm is used. Board the Bamboo train (locals call Nori). These ‘local trains’ are bamboo platforms with wheels and they fly along the rail tracks offering great views of the surrounding countryside. Battambang is also known as the best preserve town from the French colony (1863-1953) so let’s witness some of those building including Wat Conding, old house built since 1907, provincial hall and the national bank. After lunch in town. Then, drive to Ek Phnom district and visit Doun Teav Village where rice paper production is the highlight of the local industry, and we then pass the local market of Psar Bra Houk (fermented fish paste) and also a few other interesting places including Bamboo sticky rice village, Wat Samrong Khnong. In the evening, perhaps walk along the riverfront where locals indulge in hobbies such as yoga and folk dancing.

Day 7: Battambang to Phnom Penh. (B/-/-)
We leave behind the charm of this historic riverside city of Battambang and drive to the capital city Phnom Penh. We travel through Pursat province, passing through typical Cambodian landscapes of endless rice fields dotted with sugar palms.

Optional visit at Krokor district, to rent a boat to cruise out and experience life in this real floating community untouched by mass tourism Kompong Luong which is the largest Vietnamese floating community on the Tonle Sap Lake.

We continue passing through the busy riverside town of Kompong Chhnang and there may also be the opportunity to visit a local pottery village (Rolea Pa Ear District), as Kompong Chhnang is famous for producing undecorated items for the Cambodian home. Our last stop before we arrive at Phnom Penh is at Kampong Luong Commune (Punhea Leu District, Kandal Province) to see silver craftsmen. Here, silversmiths make tiny silver and copper boxes, often in animal shapes, are a popular souvenir. This is the only place in Cambodia and the king always order the product from here international welcoming.
+ Accommodation: Hotel in Phnom Penh

Day 8: Phnon Penh. (B/-/-)
Visit the spectacular Royal Palace complex, home to the Cambodian royal family and a symbol of the nation. The private quarters of the Royal Palace are home to King Sihamoni and are closed to the public. You will, however, be able to visit Wat Preah Keo Morokat with the spectacular Silver Pagoda, the most sacred Wat in Cambodia and decorated with a floor made up of 5,000 silver tiles. Afterwards, we’ll travel to the nearby National Museum which houses the world’s finest collection of sculptures from the Angkor period. We spend the rest of the morning looking around the city including Russian Market which is one of the premier shopping destinations in the Cambodian capital. An ideal way to spend your evening here is to relax in a cafe by the riverfront. (Flexible).

At 4:30 PM, we enjoy a private boat for a sunset cruise and on the Tonle Sap River, which famously reverses direction each year, acting as the world’s largest natural flood barrier for the Mekong River. We cruise past the Royal Palace compound and around the Chrouy Changvar Peninsular onto the mighty Mekong River.
+ Accommodation: Hotel in Phnom Penh

Day 9: Pnom Penh & Kampot (B/-/-)
Take a morning cyclo (cycle-rickshaw) tour around Phnom Penh, discovering some of the interesting sights, sounds and smells of the capital, including the wonderful art deco-designed Psar Thmei (Central Market). Along the way, taste some of the best street food in the city.

Back to the hotel to freshen up, and check out. Before you leave Phnom Penh, confront Cambodia’s tragic past on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. We then travel out of town to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. Prisoners from Tuol Sleng followed this same route to their fate. Despite the horrors of the past, it is a peaceful place to go and a tranquil spot to reflect on the tragic events that engulfed Cambodia and its people. Afterward, drive south by private vehicle, towards Kampot, one of Cambodia’s most attractive old towns (approximately 4 hours). Arrive in Kampot by evening.

Famous for its pepper, Kampot supplied most French restaurants for many years during colonial rule. Today, the region is also renowned for its durian, a spiky, pungent fruit that either incites adoration or sheer loathing. Try it if you dare! In some free time, you might stroll along the riverside’s French colonial architecture, or enjoy a coffee on the veranda of a riverside restaurant and admire the Bokor Mountain Range.

Day 10: Kampot & Kep (B/-/-)
After breakfast at your hotel, our day starts with a tour of the countryside, tasting locally-grown, seasonal produce depending on the season; durian or rambutan, plus lychee, pineapples, mangos or bananas. Visit the Kampot Pepper plantation which is grown in Cambodia for centuries. Kampot pepper is considered among the world’s finest by chiefs. We continue on to the lively Kep Crab markets, where crabs are kept fresh in pots that float in the Gulf of Thailand’s warm waters. Enjoy a lunch of fresh crab cooked to perfection, eaten on a pier overlooking the ocean. After lunch, walk along the Kep beach and explore the old oceanfront buildings. Kep was once Cambodia’s most popular and prestigious beach town, but the Khmer Rouge destroyed many of Kep’s mansions and villas. The ghostly remains now stand as a silent reminder. Alternatively, relax in a hammock or swim in the warm South China Sea. Back to Kampot with an option to visit salt farms (mid-January to end April), either way the sunset over salt field is stunning.

Day 11: Phnom Penh. Departure. (B/-/-)
Rise early to see the fishing boats arrive at the port with their daily catch. For breakfast, perhaps partake in a meal of crab, prawns or squid cooked up with Kampot green peppercorns and served with rice is. Alternatively try some of Kampot’s tastiest baguettes on a visit with the owner of a small wood fired oven. This legacy of French colonization is ubiquitous – many roadside carts sell baguettes with meat, sauces and salad as a snack for workers. Then, return to Phnom Penh or international airport for departure flight to next destination. (approximately 4 hour’s drive).
