Itinerary

Departure Time: 7:00 am

 

Visit the Killing Fields

 

It's an early start today as we pick you up from your accommodation at 7 am (please note accommodation is not included the night before the tour but we can help to book this for you, please let us know in advance). We'll start your audio guide tour by paying respect to the dark history of the Cambodian Genocide. From 1976 to 1979, the Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia with their own form of ultra-Marxism, resulting in the deaths of millions and the destruction of the country that can still be felt today. Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S-21), was once a high school and was converted into a detention and torture centre during the Khmer Rouge regime. Tuol Sleng remains to remind and educate all people about this dark time in Cambodian history. We then continue on to visit another killing field called Cheung EK. After a full-day tour, you will end your trip at your guesthouse, and the rest of the afternoon is at your leisure. Overnight in Phnom Penh.

 

Please Note: An audio tour or audio guide provides a recorded spoken commentary, normally through a handheld device, to a visitor. This device will describe all the information and direct the client to where to go and what to see.

Travel to Siem Reap

 

Today, we'll be crossing over to Siem Reap. Our tuk-tuk driver will transfer you to the bus station at 8 am for your bus departure at 8:30 am. We will arrange your ticket for a minivan. Enjoy your trip through the Cambodian countryside and take some rest stops along the way. In the afternoon arrive at the bus station in Siem Reap and meet our tuk-tuk driver who is ready to transfer you to check in to your accommodation. The rest of the day is free for you to relax or explore the exciting Siem Reap! Take a dip in the hostel pool or get a massage to relax after your travelling. Afterwards, take a stroll around the bustling old Market and Pub Street area and explore or head back to your hostel. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Sunrise at Angkor Wat

 

Get ready for a day of discovering magnificent temples! Depart at 4:30 am in the morning for the sunrise at the temples of Angkor in Tuk Tuks. The Angkor Archaeological Park is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking and one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia if not the world. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested areas, the park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. You could spend weeks exploring the ruins, but on this day's tour, you will have a chance to see all the highlights. You will arrive at the mystical Angkor Wat just in time to see the sunrise over the water and temples. Angkor Wat is one of mankind’s greatest achievements, and the intricate carvings at the temple of Angkor Wat demonstrate the skill of the Khmer builders. It was constructed in the jungle in the early 12th century, then - two centuries later - was mysteriously abandoned by the Khmer civilization. Now Angkor Wat is the main reason tourists come to visit Cambodia. After sunrise, we’ll head to the fabulous jungle temple of Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is particularly amazing in the early morning when all you can hear are the sounds of the jungle before the crowds arrive. After Ta Prohm, you will visit the South Gate of Angkor Thom where you can take a quiet optional 1km walk along the wall and through the jungle to a hidden temple. Then visit the temples of Bayon, Baphuon and Terrace of Elephants and Leper King. After an exciting morning exploring, we’ll head back mid-afternoon, for a well-deserved rest or dip in the pool. Overnight in Siem Reap.
