Landing in Siem Reap International Airport and transfer to your hotel in town. Late this afternoon, at 3 pm, start your Angkor adventure with a professional guide at the mightiest Khmer temple –and the world’s largest religious monument –spectacular Angkor Wat.

This evening enjoy your delicious dinner with Traditional Khmer Dance performance at a local restaurant.


Day 2 – Siem Reap

Early this morning at 6.30 am, depart to visit Ta Prohm before crowds arrive. This mysterious is entangled in the surrounding jungle foliage. Climb over its crumbling stonework and marvel at the tree roots dripping down the temple’s walls and see weathered Buddha faces appear in bas-relief and giant tree roots seem to flow over stone walls. Continue to explore Neak Pean temple before returning to your hotel for refreshment and late breakfast.

After breakfast at 9.30 am, you are picked up for a private Khmer Cooking Class. Take tour to Siem Reap lively market (Old Market) accompanied by your chef. Once you have all ingredients, move on to the kitchen to start the class with theory. A full three courses Khmer menu will be prepared by you, all under professional guidance by a skilled Cambodian chef. Eventually, enjoy your self-made lunch at the restaurant.

Spend the rest of this afternoon discovering the ancient fortified city of Angkor Thom with its stunning Bayon Temple. The structure of the giant faces of Bayon temple is staggering in its construction and most Angkor specialists agree that it is one of the finest examples of classic Khmer architecture.

Dinner served at a local restaurant.

Take some rest after lunch before departing to visit Banteay Srei temple “the Citadel of Women”, a pink sandstone temple with beautiful ornate stone carvings which is seen nowhere else in Angkor.
