Please ready from 7:30-8:30am for pick up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Siem Reap.  We’ll then set off for the Angkor Wat Ticket Office where you’ll pay and get your Angkor Pass (required).  First stop will be the Angkor Wat, one of the best preserved archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.  Stand in awe as you witness Angkor Wat’s colossal structures and meticulous architecture. Angkor Wat was built in early of 12th century, explore the beautiful complexity of Angkor Wat’s vastness from its intricately carved hallways, columns and mysterious chambers to its grand courtyards. 

Then, continue with your guide to the city of Angkor Thom, which covers a sprawling area of 6 square miles (10 km sq). Enter from the monumental South Gate over a picturesque causeway lined on either side by statues of demons and gods, each carrying a giant naga, a deity in the form of a snake. 

Stop at the Bayon temple and witness for yourself why this mysterious temple, dubbed as the Temple of Smiling Faces, has become one of the favorite Angkor temples of most visitors.  

Lunch break on your own account

After lunch, will drive about 45-minutes to the countryside, upon arrival at the quay, we will board a local boat for a 1.5-hour ride to the Tonle Sap Lake.  Along the way to the lake, we will pass through Kompong Phluk. It's a floating village and village on stilts which means 'harbor of the tusks'. Observe firsthand how villagers go about their daily lives in this remote and extraordinary environment.  See colorful houses, schools, temples, church and local government offices. Wonder at the sight of the green flooded forest (in rainy season) of the surrounding floodplain. 

We will continue the boat ride past the village until we reach the immense water scape of Tonle Sap Lake. Find out from your experienced guide telling you about Cambodia’s most important source of life-giving resources.

Optional (rainy season only): a magical canoe ride into the dense mangrove forest. Just tell your guide if you want to take the short tour at an additional cost. Return to your hotel after tour.

Excellent trips

My wife and I booked three trips through Green Era Travel. The first was the small group Angkor Wat and temples trip. Our guide did an excellent job explaining everything in great English. I really recommend this tour as you could get a bit lost in a bigger tour. Note that it gets exceptionally hot and humid and you do a lot of walking. I don’t think I drank enough water and felt a bit woozy by the end of the day. The second was the Khmer cookery course. Fortunately we were the only ones doing the course though the previous day they had 20 people. Nice trip to the market and cookery course was a lot of fun. The third trip was the half day trip to the floating village. This was very good too and watching the sunset over the lake was worth it. In all three cases it was well organised and the pick up and drop offs all on time.

Full day Angkor Wat temples and half day Tonie Sap floating village tours

Thanks to Marin (our amazing Cambodian guide) and Chea (our driver) for our personalised ( not group) guided tours, nothing was too much trouble for them. Angkor Wat was as awe inspiring as we had imagined and the information provided by Marin enabled us to understand the history in Cambodia over 800 years ago. Travelling with Marin was fun and informative he was happy to recount the history of his country. He certainly knew the best places to take photos around the temples.
