Day 1: Arrive Phnom Penh
On arrival in Phnom Penh, you’ll be greeted by an English-speaking guide who will accompany you to your hotel to check in ahead of your time in the Cambodian capital. Once you’re settled in, you’ll then start your exploration of the city with a Cyclo trip through the French quarter before heading out to Wat Phrom – a Buddhist temple dating back to the 1370s that is seen as the birthplace of the city. You can then enjoy an evening at leisure back at your hotel.
  • Frangipani Royal Palace
Day 2: Phnom Penh
Today you’ll have chance to fully explore Phnom Penh with a full day of activities which start with a trip to the Royal Palace. Here, you’ll explore the Silver Pagoda – so called because of the thousands of silver tiles that make up the floor – before heading on to the National Museum to examine one of the world’s best collections of Khmer artifacts. Next up, you’ll learn all about the work that goes into helping vulnerable children at the Child Safe Centre before a visit to the Central Market and mid-day break back at the hotel. The afternoon will then see you explore the dark history of Cambodia under the rule of the Khmer Rouge, with visits to both the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek.

An optional performance from the Cambodian Living Arts group at the National Museum is available during the evening
Day 3: Phnom Penh – Kampong Thom
Heading away from Phnom Penh, you’ll pay a visit to the pre-Angkorian site of Sambor Prei Kuk; a collection of more than 100 well preserved temples scattered amongst the forest. You’ll walk through the trees to visit the main sites and visit some of the local villages to observe locals going about their business creating goods for sale as part of a community-based tourism project. You’ll be able to support the local community during a simple but tasty lunch near to the temple; continuing on to Kampong Thom when your time at the temples comes to an end.
  • Sambor Village (B,L)

You’ll then head to the Tonle Sap Lake where there is the opportunity to embark on a cruise out to the stilted village of Kampong Kleang.

Day 5: Siem Reap – Temples of Angkor
A day exploring the Angkorian temples starts with a trip by remork – similar to the Thai tuk-tuk – to Angkor Wat. Symbolising the soul of the Khmer people, the famous temple features on the Cambodian flag and includes walls covered with intricate carvings and bas-reliefs. You’ll then travel to Angkor Thom, ending the city walls through the South Gate to visit the Bayon Temple; a large temple in the exact centre of the city that features 54 towers to represent the 54 provinces o f the Great Khmer Empire. You’ll also visit the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King before returning to your hotel for a break. In the afternoon, you’ll continue to explore the grand temples; culminating in a visit to Ta Prohm – an ancient temple that is overgrown by trees and vines.

Day 6: Siem Reap – Beng Mealea – Banteay Srei
Head from Siem Reap out into the Cambodian countryside as you head towards Beng Mealea.

You’ll then enjoy lunch at a local house before continuing onwards to Banteay Srei to visit a temple that is often referred to as the most well preserved in the country – and which is also unique given its construction from pink sandstone. After calling in at the Banteay Samre, you’ll then return to Siem Reap for the night.
  • Somadevi Angkor Hotel (B,L)

Along the way you can call in for Chinese tea in a traditional teashop and visit a local market before catching the ferry to Saphan Taksin to visit the Siam Paragon shopping centre.
  • Glow Trinity (B)
Day 9: Bangkok – Amphawa
From Bangkok, you’ll head towards the Samut Songkhram Provice to visit a local market uniquely positioned alongside the local railway tracks; so much so that vendors are forced to quickly remove their goods and fold up their stalls when a train is coming through. When you get to Amphawa, you’ll have time at leisure to do as you wish ahead of an evening boat trip to marvel at the sight of thousands of sparkling fire flies.
  • Baan Amphawa Resort (B)
