The Ankgor region in Cambodia is a massive UNESCO site that safeguards one of the most architecturally and artistically important areas in Southeast Asia.  Its famed temples from the 9th to 14 century Khmer Empire include Ankgor Wat and Ankgor Thom.  The temples, hydraulic structures, canals, dykes, and monuments are the focus of this tour.  You'll spend four days in the gateway city of Siem Reap in Cambodia's northern province, where your private guided trip will take you on day excursions to the famous sights, and then into the back areas of the region not frequented by visitors.

Itinerary:

Day 1 - Cambodia - Siem Reap

Upon arrival into Siem Reap, Cambodia, you will be meet by your private guide and driver who will transfer you to Shinta Mani Resort for your overnight. No meals included this day. 

Day 2 - Siem Reap

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before your private guided trip to Angkor.  We start our tour at the South Gate of Angkor Thom and the Bayon Temple with its famous carved faces, Baphoun, Phimean Akas, The Royal Enclosure, Terrace of Elephants, Leper King, Temple of Angkor and the sculptured decorations. The afternoon is set aside for the main temple of Angkor Wat, one of the greatest achievements of mankind. Its intricate carvings demonstrate the skill of the builders during the 12th century. Angkor was mysteriously abandoned by the Khmer civilization in the 14th century and quickly taken over by the jungle, until it was discovered by a French naturalist, who accidentally stumbled on the ruins in 1861.  Your finish yuour day with a walk to the top of Bekheng Hill to watch the sun set over the entire Angkor site.  Overnight at Shinta Mani Resort.

Day 3 - Siem Reap

 

After breakfast, enjoy the scenic drive to Banteay Srei (loosely translated as "The Citadel of Women"), an ornate, pink limestone temple with a fairytale ambiance. On the way back to Siem Reap, we will stop to visit the Land Mine Museum, run by a former child soldier of the Khmer Rouge who was forced to plant thousands of land mines. He has now devoted his life to clearing the mines, and has removed over 50,000 so far.  We continue on to Preah Khan where the jungle is taking back the ruin as large kapok trees grow through the ancient cobble stone streets and court yards. Screeching parrots and monkeys keep watch over the ruins, lending to the surreal ambiance.  We continue on to Ta Prohm, constructed in 1186 as a dedication to the mother of Jayavarman VII. Overnight at Shinta Mani Resort. (B,L)

Day 4 - Siem Reap

We have breakfast, then visit the Roluos Group Temples, including LoLei, Bankong, and Preah Ko. These ancient temples were built and ruled by Yasovarman, the founder of the first city of Angkor.  An active Buddhist monastery is still located in the Roluos Group of temples. There are very intricate etchings on doorsteps, doorposts, and in the niches of each temple.  Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant near the temple before being transported to the airport in time for your flight to Bangkok. (B,L)
