If you want to understand Cambodian, you should go to the water. Lake Tonlé Sap supplies half of Cambodians with fish and water for agriculture, and its ecological significance extends far beyond. The Tonlé Sap River performs a natural wonder every year: from October to June it directs the lake water northeast into the Mekong until the latter, strengthened by meltwater from Tibet, pushes it back and changes its direction of flow. So the Tonlé Sap lake increases four to five times!
Individual arrival in Siem Reap. You will be met at the airport and taken to your hotel in Siem Reap – the gateway to Angkor. Enjoy the evening in the colorfully illuminated city and visit, for example, the lively night market.
Central Corner d’Angkor (or similar)
After having breakfast at the hotel, It’s time for the main event with a whole day to enjoy a guided tour around the unforgettable Angkor complex. First we will visit Angkor Wat, which is the most famous of all the Angkor temples. The temple, built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II contains three stories of libraries, galleries and towers surrounded by a thick retaining wall and an imposing moat. Having your professional historian guide, you will be able to discuss in detail what you are looking to achieve from your time at the temples.
You will then head out into the center of Angkor Thom and enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.
Have lunch at a local restaurant for exotic Khmer cuisine. Ta Prohm temple is your next stop before some leisure time in the late afternoon. Ta Prohm is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground, and creating one of the most photogenic and atmospheric temples of the entire Angkor site
