Day 1: Siem Reap – Full-Day Temples of Angkor
After breakfast in the hotel, we will start our first visit to Angkor Complex: Angkor Thom, the fortified city of Angkor Thom covers an area of 10 square km. Enter by the monumental South Gate over a causeway lined on either side by statues of demons and gods, each carrying a giant naga. We will stop at the famous Bayon temple and continue to the Terrace of the Elephants and the terrace of the Leper Kings, then to Ta Phrom - It has been controversially left to the destructive power of the jungle by French archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature.
In the afternoon we continue to Angkor Wat and then get back to your hotel.
Day 2: Siem Reap – Kampong Phluk and Roluos
The Tonle Sap is called the 'great lake' and is one of the two main topographical features of Cambodia. During the rainy season, it can swell from 3,000 square kilometres to 7500 square kilometres. Tonle Sap is also one of the world’s richest sources of freshwater fish. Today we drive 30 minutes to the departure point at Chong Khneas village and cruise along a canal, past floating villages complete with schools, restaurants and even a hospital. See fishing nets being mended, children swimming and playing, floating pigpens and even crocodile enclosures.
We continue through a section of mangroves and out onto the massive lake, past local fishermen and an amazing array of boats where we will stop at a floating fish and crocodile farm. The roof of this structure makes an excellent spot to take photos of the lake and the surrounding area. This journey provides a truly amazing look into a remarkable way of life. Return to your hotel approximately three hours from departure from your hotel.
After visiting Kampong Phluk we will continue our trip to Roulous temple group which are among the oldest Khmer monuments in the area, dating back to the 9th century reign of Indravarman I and part of the former city of Hariharalaya.
Roluos is a Cambodian modern small town and an archeological site about 13 km east of Siem Reap along NH6. Once it was the seat of Hariharalaya, the first capital of Khmer Empire north of Tonlé Sap.
Among the Roluos Group of temples, there are some of the earliest permanent structures built by Khmer. They mark the beginning of the classical period of Khmer civilization, dating from the late 9th century. Some were totally built with bricks, others partially with laterite or sandstone (the first large Angkorian temple built with sandstone was possibly Ta Keo).
After visiting Roluos Group, our guide and driver will transfer your back to the hotel.
