Day 1: Arrive in Siem Reap
Upon your arrival into Siem Reap airport, you will be met by your driver, who will whisk you off to your hotel, where you can check in for your 3 night stay, and make yourself at home.
Day 2: Angkor Wat Tour
Today is a very special day – your day to explore the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat temples.
Your day will start by driving out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom. It was the last great capital of the great Khmer Empire, and it is surrounded by an 8 metre high wall, which draws a perfect square.
From here, you’ll continue on to Bayon Temple, which is located in the exact centre of the city. This 12th Century masterpiece is well-known for its 54 towers with enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the great Khmer Empire. As you stroll through the grounds of the former Royal Palace, you will discover small hidden temples that are rarely visited.
Your next stop will be at Ta Prohm Temple – this is a unique temple due to it being left largely untouched; overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with some of the temple crumbling and falling to the ground. This makes for one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples.
After heading back to the town for a lunch break (lunch not included), your day will conclude with a visit to the biggest religious temple in the world, the magnificent Angkor Wat. Constructed in the early 12th Century, Angkor Wat was built following the model of the temple mountain symbolising the Mount Merou, home of the Gods. As you walk towards the imposing structure, you really get a sense of the sheer size and magnitude of this impressive piece of architecture.
Day 3: Siem Reap
Your day is free for you to discover more about Siem Reap itself – Take some time to stroll through the beautiful pagodas, visit the colourful markets, and get under the skin of this town.
A great place to visit in the evening is the inventively named “Pub Street”. It’s a bustling area full of local street vendors, bars, and restaurants – there is a great atmosphere and you are bound to find a great pub to people watch from!
