Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in vibrant Siem Reap, home to the magnificent temples of Angkor, and settle in to your luxury hotel. We recommend the ultra-luxe Amansara as a base during your stay in the city. To ease your way into your Angkor Wat experience, today, you’ll start by exploring the Roluos group of temples, located in a small town a short drive away from the city. These temples are some of the Khmer empire's earliest structures.

Day 2

Feel like Indiana Jones, exploring the magnificent temples that make up Angkor Wat. Your expert guide will take you to the ancient Kingdom’s most spectacular structures, and you’ll find yourself in utter awe at the intricate detailing and elaborate architecture that went into the construction of these monolithic temples, including can’t-miss stops like Ta Prohm and Bayon Thom.

Day 3

If you thought yesterday was an incredible journey into the past, today will be equally-impressive. You’ll drive 25 km outside of Siem Reap to Banteay Srei, a structure miniature in size compared to Angkor, leading some to refer to it as the “jewel of Khmer art”. A further drive will take you to Beng Mealea, one of the empire’s largest temples. Continuing onwards, you’ll venture to Koh Ker, a sprawling sanctuary surrounded by dense jungle that’s home to a Mayan-style pyramid, having once been an important city of the Khmer Empire.

Day 4

Your final day in Siem Reap will take you to Phnom Bakheng, a hilltop temple that provides stunning views of the expansive Angkor Wat. For your final activity ahead of your departure, enjoy a tranquil cruise on Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, rich with biodiversity due to its unique ecological characteristics. Here, you’ll gain fascinating insight into the riverside Khmer communities you’ll pass as the boat floats along. It’s the perfect finale to your Angkor Wat experience.
