This varied and colourful tour of Cambodia covers the main highlights of the Angkor Kingdom & capital city of Phnom Penh and the lesser-known town of Battambang.
After time to discover the modern city, follow the path of the scenic road to the colonial town of Battambang – explore the different lifestyles through the eyes of a local. The final stage of the trip is to tick off the well-known Angkor temples, but also explore more remote creeper-clad ruins, and even camp amongst the Khmer empire.
Upon arrival, please look out for the Siem Reaper welcome sign at the arrivals gate. We will transfer you to your hotel where you can take your time and relax by the pool or venture out for your first exploration of this modern city.
Frangipani Palace Hotel
After a great breakfast and coffee at your hotel, we go ahead to Royal Palace. This king palace dates back to 1866 and houses silver pagoda for over 5000 heavy silver pieces. Locals call this, Wat Prakeo, meaning the temple of Emerald Buddha. The building is also regarded as the museum store room for Buddha status.
Your next destination is to stop at the National Museum, built in traditional Khmer style. It houses the collected ancient Khmer art, archaeological, and religious artefacts from the early 4th -12th century. Head out south of the main centre of the tourist side to Tuol Sleng. Tuol Sleng was a former high school which was used as Security Prison 21 or (S21) under the control of Khmer Rouge from 1975 till 1979. The school was converted into a prison during the victory of Khmer Rouge fighting against the government. This afternoon, you will be treated to a relaxed lunch at a local Khmer styled restaurant where you have a chance to test traditional Khmer cuisine. After the lunch break, continue your tour to the most memorable Killing Field, Genocide Museum. Spend 1hour to take a tour into the complex, before returning to your hotel to relax at the pool.
