Delve deep into Khmer history and culture with our in-depth Amazing Angkor itinerary. Explore the charming and lively town of Siem Reap, including its world-famous Angkor Wat temple complex, as well as lesser-known but equally-impressive temples such as Beng Mealea and Koh Ker, along with a cruise along the picturesque Tonle Sap lake. This luxury 4-day itinerary is the perfect way to experience Angkor in sheer luxury.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Located approximately five miles from the famed Angkor Wat, Amansara is sleek, stylish and superbly private. Formerly the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, the grounds were originally laid out in 1962 and designed to embrace both modern design and the rich artistic legacy of Cambodia. This tranquil oasis is surrounded by beautiful gardens and includes a curved slate swimming pool. The 24 suites are decorated in a classic Indochinese palette of cool gray, pristine white, dark timber and ivory, and all include a private courtyard and soothing water features; 12 suites are equipped with private swimming pools. The Roof Garden, shaded by trees, is the ideal venue for relaxing by candlelight with cocktails, or for invigorating morning yoga sessions. The Spa, which has four treatment rooms, focuses on therapeutic Cambodian techniques using organic products. Every suite has access to its own remork and driver. On the 2007 Zagat Survey list of the world’s best hotels, Amansara was ranked number two for service.
A grand, historic hotel, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor opened its doors in the early 1930s. It is located on the main road to Angkor Wat and was planned so that it aligns on a north-south axis with Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Now sensitively restored, the hotel’s classic style coupled with its renewed modernity complement the grandeur of Angkor Wat. The hotel has 131 guest rooms and suites, each tastefully appointed with Art Deco-styled furnishings and Cambodian objets d’art. Guest services include the Raffles Amrita Spa, a fitness center, and a host of classes in the Raffles Amrita Pavilion, from Khmer dancing to Tai Chi. Elegant dining options range from the formal Restaurant Le Grand, to the Café d’Angkor, to the wide selection of cocktails at the famed Elephant Bar.
The Park Hyatt is a new addition to Cambodia’s select five-star hotel crowd. The hotel was previously Hotel De La Paix, one of the country’s top properties, and has been rebranded after a complete renovation.
