Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in Siem Reap

Day 1

Arrival in Siem Reap

Arriving in Siem Reap, you’ll settle into your cosy central hotel with pool and friendly staff. You can spend the evening ambling around Siem Reap, tasting the local Khmer specialities and sifting through the souvenir stalls. If you get here early enough, drop into the Cambodian Landmine Museum, a fascinating and heart-wrenching place run by land mine victims.

Days 2-4

Angkor Wat - Guided Tour

The following morning, you’ll be collected by your guide before dawn for a tour of the temples. Watching the sunrise behind Angkor is something that is likely to stick with you for a lifetime. You’ll visit the temple highlights, wander between the endless carved relics and learn about their fascinating history. If you want to immerse yourself in these impressive temples for longer, you can opt for a 2-day tour where you’ll see temple highlights as well as lesser visited and more mysterious places. Just let your travel specialist know!

On day 3 you’ll have time to explore Angkor and Siem Reap independently, ambling between crumbling jungle ruins and visiting local markets. Alternatively, if you’re starting to reach temple saturation point, you can visit the local project we support here, the Cambodia-Dutch Foundation. This project supports the well being of the Cambodian people through various aid projects. The following day you’ll carry on to your next destination.

If you’re feeling”templed-out” and fancy doing something different, you can enjoy a show at the Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus – which means “Brightness of the Arts” in Khmer. Phare is a Cambodian non-profit art organisation founded in 1994 by eight young Cambodians returning from refugee camps. The purpose is to improve the development of local communities by providing education and professional artistic training.

Speak to our Cambodia specialist, Miles

“Cambodia is full of history and beauty, from Angkor Wat to the Cardamom Mountains. You can easily explore in one week or combine with neighbouring Vietnam. I often suggest Cambodia for families as it’s easy to travel around.”
