Day 1: Arrival in Siem Reap, Airport pick-up
Welcome to Siem Reap - the gateway to Angkor Wat! Your 6 days Cambodia tour will start from this charming city. After clearing Customs and retrieving your luggage, you will find our guide is waiting for you in the Arrival Hall, holding a welcome board with your name on it. A comfortable drive will then take you to check into the hotel we specially selected for you. Rest and relax during the remainder of the day.
Day 2: Explore highlight temples of the Angkor Complex
Today, we will take you to visit the historical sites of the Angkor Ruins, which would be the most splendid part of your trip. First, our guide and driver will usher you to the Angkor Thom, the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer Empire, which is surrounded by a moat. There is a stone bridge standing on the moat out of its grand South Gate. The busts on one side of the bridge represent sprits while busts on the other side symbolize demons. Stepping into the South Gate, Bayon Temple, a landmark of Angkor Ruins comes into your sight. This temple is well-known for its mysterious smiling faces, which were carved on four sides of the Buddhist towers. Then, we will accompany you to visit the nearby Baphuon Temple and the Terrace of the Elephants.

In the afternoon, we will head to visit the Ta Prohm Temple, the shooting site of the movie Tomb Raider. This distinctive temple standing among the towering green trees brims with the breath of life. Afterwards, we will come to the Angkor Wat, the best-preserved temple in Angkor complex. This typical Khmer building is known for its exquisite bas-reliefs and the Indian mythology is expressed vividly and fully here.

Weather permitting, we will take you to admire the amazing sunset on the Bakheng Hill. The Bakheng Temple, standing on top of the mountain, is a typical Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva. You may enjoy a full view of the golden Angkor Ruins under sunset.

At the end, we will drive you to enjoy a traditional performance, Apsara Dance Show with buffet dinner. After the show, we will transfer you back to the hotel.

Day 3: Visit Banteay Srei and Beng Mealea, Take a boat trip to the floating village
Watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat is a must-do experience while in Siem Reap, so we have included this in our itinerary. You need to get up earlier this morning, and your guide will take you to the best place to get quintessential shots of Angkor Wat at sunrise. Afterwards, you will be driven back to the hotel for breakfast.

Then our guide and driver will transfer you out of town to the Banteay Srei. Along the way, you can experience authentic life when you pass by local villages. Banteay Srei is one of the most elaborate temples at Angkor, which was built with the particular red clay and pinkish bricks of Cambodia and is admired for its delicate bas-reliefs and bright colors. After that, we will head to visit a less crowded Khmer Temple of Beng Mealea, a hidden treasure of Angkor, which is swallowed by jungle.

Late in the afternoon, we will drive to the Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, where you will take a boat trip to explore the floating village of Kampong Phluk. People have lived here for generations, so it could be quite a special experience to see their floating houses, churches and schools, as well as to witness their real life on the lake. In addition, you could also enjoy the breathtaking sunset view over the lake.

Get back to Siem Reap, we could drive you directly to the hotel, or drop you off at the lively pub street in the old quarter as you wish, where you could experience the night life of Siem Reap.

Most of the collections here are from the Angkor ruins. Then, we will come to the Old Market of Siem Reap, which is a perfect place to find interesting souvenirs, especially the wood carvings. You will enjoy some free time exploring this market.

In the afternoon, we will transfer you to the airport to catch the flight to the capital city of Phnom Penh. One hour later, our guide and driver in Phnom Penh will greet you in the Arrival Hall and take you to check into the hotel in the downtown area.

Day 5: Phnom Penh city highlights tour
Today, we will have a full day Phnom Penh tour. First, we will transfer you to visit the Royal Palace, which is still a current living place for the King of Cambodia. The must-sees are the the Throne Hall, the Silver Pagoda and the murals in the corridor of the palace. The Silver Pagoda is the place for the kings to worship the Buddha, named for about 5,000 silver bricks paved on the floor. Later, our guide will take you to visit the National Museum of Cambodia and the Wat Phnom Temple.

In the afternoon, you will follow the guide to visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung EK. Both of the sites had witnessed how cruel and terrible the Khmer Rouge was during the 1970s. But how Cambodia is healing from this? And how do they teach their young generations about this? Your professional guide will tell you more about these while visiting. At the end of the day, we will transfer you back to the hotel.

    It was a relatively pleasant 6 days Cambodia tour to Siem Reap & Phnom Penh. The tour guide was warm-hearted and had a great service attitude. He cared for every member of the group. Especially I couldn’t walk for a long time because of my back pain. He was kind enough to offer me the sticking-plasters. He also gave us clear and detailed explanations. Good job! He is really a dedicated tour guide!

    The Tonle Sap Lake on this trip was quite impressive! According to the guide’s explanation, it was the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. We had a boat ride to a floating village.

    It rained and the water rose that day, so we had a special and interesting experience on the lake! Other attractions on this 6 days private Cambodia tour were also great! Highly recommend to visit Angkor Wat, which was very stunning!

    In addition to Angkor Wat, we were impressed by the experience in Phnom Penh. We visited Genocide Museum and Killing Fields. Through the guide’s explanation, we learned that these two sites had witnessed cruel and terrible past of the Khmer Rouge. What a sad history! Cambodia and Khmer civilization were worth knowing!

    The first thing I saw when I got off the plane was a sign with our names on it. I was very grateful to the guide for her patient waiting, even though our plane was delayed by 20 minutes. We were grateful for that. The tour car was spacious and well equipped with good air-conditioner.
    During the 6 days Cambodia tour, we were provided with thoughtful service and cool bottled water at any time:)
    The guide was a lovely young girl who shared many Cambodian customs and kindly helped us take photos. The local driver was very steady and quiet, always waited for us patiently. We felt the enthusiasm and politeness of Cambodians. They always warmly greeted us with a smile.
    A very memorable trip to Cambodia!

    I think Angkor Wat is a must-see spot in a lifetime! It was quite spectacular with best-preserved temples and exquisite bas-reliefs! Tonle Sap Lake was also not be missed! It was the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, and we had a boat ride to a floating village. It was interesting and relaxed! The guides were all nice and they were patient to explain the history of ancient buildings professionally. Local drivers were also friendly and helpful. We had a reasonable itinerary, plenty of rest, neat and tidy hotels with complete facilities, pretty good buffets...overall, I was extremely pleased with this 6 days Cambodia tour to Siem Reap & Phnom Penh....More
