Start from 08:00 – 17:00

The tour begins at 8:00am with a visit to the iconic Angkor Wat, one of the largest temple complexes within the Angkor area. An experienced guide will explain the many forms of symbolism within the five-towered temple, pointing out many outstanding features of the classical Khmer architecture.

After lunch and rest, we Angkor Thom, the capital of the vast and powerful Khmer Empire during the reign of King Jayavarman VII (AD 1181 – 1220). The tour will pass through the South Gate of Angkor Thom, famous for its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk. Within this great walled city is the Bayon temple, with 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. The day will finish at Ta Prohm, the ‘Indiana Jones’ temple which has been largely overgrown by the jungle. This beautiful complex remains relatively untouched and features many impressive trees which have grown throughout the ruins.

Venture off the beaten track to some of Cambodia’s more remote and untouched temples. Offering an alternative view of Angkor Wat, this one-day tour takes you further from Siem Reap to explore the jungle-covered temples of Beng Melea and Koh Ker – an ideal trip for those wishing to escape the crowds.

Start from 08:00 – 17:00

Leave Siem Reap at 8am to drive the 70km to Beng Melea, passing through many rural villages and rice paddies along the way. An experienced guide will explain the history of this 12th century site as you make your way through one of the most remote and un-touched Angkor temples. Overgrown by the jungle, Beng Melea is an enthralling and peaceful place to explore and, as it is away from the main temple areas, remains relatively un-crowded. 
 
A picnic lunch will be provided for you to enjoy under the shade of the ancient trees among the ruins.
 
A further one hour drive leads you to Koh Ker in Preah Vihear province, another area of abandoned temples from the 10th century.

Floating Village Half Day Tour

Discover Siem Reap’s secrets as you explore with our experience tour guide on a half day tour in Siem Reap. Leaving Siem Reap we travel through the countryside to Tonle Sap Lake.

The Tonle Sap one of the world’s most productive bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997.

Take a boat trip around the lake to see floating villages and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture. Afterwards jump back on the remork to return to Siem Reap.

Take the back roads back to town on this half day tour in Siem Reap and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting and harvesting, smoking fish, fish paste (prohoc making), and duck farming. Stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore.

Due to Tonle Sap water level in the dry season, this half day floating village tour can be change of a visit to Chong Khneas or Kampong Phluk
