Day 1: Siem Reap Arrival - Phare Show
Welcome to Siem Reap, the provincial capital and gateway to the ancient Angkor temples. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses dozens of temple ruins including Bayon and the legendary Angkor Wat. Upon arrival, you will be met by our local guide and driven to the hotel to check in.
Orientation walking around the hotel area followed by the Phare Show at Cambodia Circus Centre to expect the unexpected. More than just a circus, Phare performers use theater, music, dance and modern circus arts to tell uniquely Cambodian stories; historical, folk and modern. The young circus artists will astonish you with their energy, emotion, enthusiasm and talent. This show should be the perfect introduction about Cambodian culture and history.
Accommodation: Hotel in Siem Reap.
Day 2: Siem Reap - Angkor Complex
After breakfast, you’ll visit Angkor Thom, starting with its South Gate which is best known for the majestic doors and artifacts. Your next visit will be the Bayon, a bizarre structure of several architectural changes reflecting a switch from Hinduism (the foundations) to Buddhism (the superstructure), the Elephant and Leper King Terraces followed by a visit to Ta Prohm Temple, which is a wonderful combination of human genius and natural beauty with its giant trees that have grown there for centuries.
In the afternoon, you’ll explore Angkor Wat itself, the largest, and for most people, the most impressive temple in the complex after which you can watch the sunset from the top of Phnom Bakheng Hill.
Accommodation: Hotel in Siem Reap
Day 3: Siem Reap - Ox Cart Ride - Tonle Sap Lake - Homestay
Rise up early for the ox cart ride to get a true sense of the quiet life of rural Cambodia. Starting from your hotel at 5.00 AM, you will be driven by tuk tuk to Chreav village.

After that, you will tour through the village, seeing local people going about their daily life.
Afterward, transfer back to the hotel for your breakfast and relax.
Check out at noon and proceed to the one of the city’s lively open markets, Psar Chass, called the “Old Market”, where you can see the locals shopping and going about their lives.
In the afternoon, continue your trip to Kampong Kleang floating village - a must see on Tonle Sap Lake. Board a boat and visit the floating village before heading to the nearby flooded mangrove forests.

In the afternoon, you will take a slow 30-minute ride on the bamboo train before visiting Phnom Sampov - an important religious site known throughout all Cambodia. During the Khmer Rouge period the mountain was used as a place to kill "enemies" of the regime and in what are known as the "killing caves" there is a memorial to these victims. Every evening at nightfall thousands of bats make their way out of caves in the hillside to feed before returning at dawn.
