We pass through the river-front park where 4 rivers met at a junction include mystical Mekong. Walk up to sacred hill Phnom Daun Penh - also the name of a pagoda and name of the capital nowadays. Enjoy the night time and overnight in Phnom Penh.

Breakfast at hotel, in the morning we visit Tuol Sleng prison now is Genocide Museum, the most secret part of the Khmer Rouge regime. It’s also called S-21 (abbreviated for Security Office 21), a Khmer Rouge's premier security camp, specifically designed for the interrogation and extermination of anti-Angkor elements. Leave the relics of the bad history of Cambodia we will go shopping around Russian market, enjoy the bustling daily activities of the locals. Heading to AIRPORT/BUS STATION for departure to Siem Reap.

Welcome to Cambodia - Siem Reap, the treasures of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Transfer to hotel for check-in. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Breakfast at hotel, explore South Gate of Angkor Thom known as Big Angkor, 3km2 walled and moated royal city and was the last capital of the Angkorian Empire, The famous Bayon Temple was an architectural muddle, in part because it was constructed in a somewhat piecemeal fashion for over a century. Terrace of the Elephants is an impressive, two and a half meter tall, 300 meter long terrace wall adorned with carved elephants and gradual that spans the heart of Angkor Thom in front of Baphuon - huge temple mountain in the heart of Angkor Thom, Royal Palace Area and Phimeanakas - impressive rite and sandstone pyramid. Terrace of the Leper King is at the north end of the Terrace of the Elephants, a double terrace wall with deeply carved nag as, demons and other mythological beings. 

Afternoon visit Angkor Wat temple, the founder of the temple was Suryavarman II who reined Cambodia from 1113 to 1152 and built the five towers in the 12th century to dedicate to the Hindu God Vishnu. The plan of the pyramidal conception of the temple combined with spaces, alleys, ditches is an ancient masterpiece of architectural design and construction. Have funny time at bars and pubs at Angkor night market. Overnight in Siem Reap.

After breakfast, we visit Small Circuit including: visit Ta Prohm temple which is a wonderful combination of human genius and natural beauty. Giant trees have grown here for centuries and Prasat Kravan was originally constructed by noblemen rather than a king. Banteay Kdei was built in sandstone, which has deteriorated quite badly. However, there remain some very beautiful lintels and pediments. Srah Srang is a royal pool was the King's bathing pond, where he washed with his many concubines each day.  Takeo - King Suryavarman I commissioned this temple in the 10th Century, but it was never completed so has no elaborate decoration like its contemporaries. It is a pyramid on 5 levels and is dedicated to Shiva. Thommanon - small attractive temple in very good condition, built at the same time as Angkor Wat. Chau Say Tevoda built during the second quarter of the 12th century opposite of Thommanon, it was dedicated to Shiva and Vishnu.

Afternoon overland trip to visit the highlights of the Grand Circuit including: Preah Khan - meaning The Sacred Sword, this temple was also built by Jayawarman VII and is famous for its immensely long cruciform corridors and delicate carvings. Neak Pean - This temple is a delicate highlight of Khmer art. Built by Jayavarman VII, this temple is the perfect representation of the heavens on earth. Ta Som was a small classic Bayon style monastic complex consisting of a relatively flat enclosure. East Mebon was built in the 10th Century by Rajendravarman; this temple was situated on a small island in the middle of the Oriental, or Eastern, Baray. Last visit Pre Rup was built in the 10th Century by Rajendravarman and view lovely sunset there. Overnight in Siem Reap.

We will have free time at leisure until transfer to Siemreap airport for your departure. End of services.

Bucket list checked

As one of the world cultural heritage, Angkor Wat is totally awesome. Even though it has experienced the weathering from nature or wartime, it is still gorgeous. I would say 3days is a good lengthy of minimum stay for the entire Angkor tourist area. But stay safe when you take a tuk tuk, my only bad experience was being robbed on a tuk tuk when I was on my way back to hotel from Angkor wat.

  • Expensive but good Alana

Expensive but good

There is a $15 charge for entrance and audio. If you enjoy 11th Century artifacts then you are in luck. This museum is awash in huge findings from Siem Reap. There is literally an audio for every exhibited article. The English is excellent and easy to follow. You can also see a 1,100 metre long scarf that is in the Guiness. Lovely setting and worth the visit.

  • Sad place mMarlene Reimers

Sad place

I feel sad when we learn about this place but we also learned so many things about Cambodia history and the genocide. We left with a heavy heart knowing what the Khmer Rouge did to its people and how it happened. It was also refreshing to know how People I know adjusted

Mystic experience

Aside from the large number of tourists visiting this site at the same type, the ruins of Ta Prohm temple are amazing. Angkor was abandoned at the end of the 15th century and trees has been growing in every directions inside the site. The amazing roots combined with the temple ruins are must visit in Siem Reap.

  • MAGICAL Kevyn Ho

MAGICAL

I visited Angkor and 2 other temples in a small guided tour group . This to me is a must. Angkor is obviously of a huge part of Cambodian life as it is on their flag and we saw many photographers snapping wedding couples in full attire prior to marriage days. Huge site, many steps, many tourists BUT magical in so many ways- 100% recomended

Emotionally depressing but worth a visit

Quite depressing place and story, reminded me of my visit to Aushwitz in Poland. A reminder of the horrors of the Khmer period.

Wonderful display of Cambodian artifacts.

I loved the museum so much that I spent a few hours there then went back the next day for another few hours. It helps if you have a either strong historical, art-history, history of religion, or anthropological interest. But it's wonderful in any case.

  • Breathtaking Treasure

Breathtaking

We were looking for something that was a bit more "off the beaten path" from some of the other Angkor Wat temples. We had a private guide who suggested coming here. We got there super early (7am-ish) and it was completely worth it. It was quiet and just about empty. It was so nice to explore this beautiful temple without a tourist mob and selfie sticks. We were able to explore freely and have the beautiful peace of the morning.I highly recommend having a guide for this. We had a private guide just for three of us and he gave us the history of the temple and answered any questions we had. The restoration happening at this temple is well worth it. The stone is just beautiful and is a nice departure from the dark scorched stones of Angkor Wat.I highly recommend this for anyone that wants a more private temple experience. We absolutely love it.
