Angkor, ancient capital of the Khmer Empire
Its mystery lies in these ancient ruins now classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Originally Hindu, the various ruins became gradually Buddhists and were long lost in the tropical jungle. Today, the site impresses majesty and grace on its buildings, and a walk through Angkor is a unique opportunity to go back in time.

Day 3: THURSDAY, 01/16/20 – SIEM REAP (B/L)

After breakfast, drive to Kbal Spean, the river of a thousand lingams, located about 50km north of Siem Reap. On arrival, a 45-minute hike through the jungle, and discovery of the river whose rocky bed is engraved with Apsaras and countless symbols of the god Shiva. In popular belief, lingams brought fertility to the waters that then went on to irrigate the rice fields below.

  • Lunch in a local restaurant

In the afternoon, drive through the famous Bantey Srey Temple the “Citadel of Women”. This small pink sandstone temple (late 10th century) is considered to be a jewel in the crown of classical Khmer art because of its delicate carvings.

Then, return back to Siem Reap through the Cambodian countryside, followed by the visit of the marvelously restored Bantey Samre Temple.

  • Dinner at your leisure.
  • Overnight in Siem Reap.

      Day 4: FRIDAY, 01/17/20 – SIEM REAP (B/L)

Finally, discover the fascinating Ta Phrom Temple, which has been left in much the same condition as it was found – the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have probably made it one of the most famous monuments with Angkor Wat and the Bayon.

  • Lunch at local restaurant.
