The World Heritage temple originates from the 12th century and is an amazing experience consisting of mystique and beautiful sculptures!
Discover a Floating Village
Today, you will leave Siem Reap town on a vintage jeep and set off for the beautiful countryside where you will cycle along the red soil roads through the villages. You will stop by the local fish market on the way where you can observe traditional Khmer fish trade, a daily event.
After cycling, you will take a small break for some cool refreshment before continuing on to the next part of the trip.

When you arrive at the village, you will board a boat and head out to explore this beautiful floating village!

Are you feeling active? Rent a bicycle to explore the town. Do you just want to take it easy and relax? Visit a local spa and get a massage or enjoy a swim in the pool.
There are many options you can choose from.
Travel to Quiet Stung Treng
Travel to Stung Treng by private transportation, which is around 50 kilometers near the border with Laos. Stung Treng is an important trade hub with a few hints of Lao influence.
It's a friendly, quiet country town situated at the confluence of the San River and the Mekong River. It actually sits on the banks of the San River, with the mighty Mekong coming into the picture on the northeastern outskirts of the town.
Embark on a Kayaking Adventure
Awaken to the sounds of birds and enjoy a delicious breakfast.
Begin a full-day kayaking trip down the river through the remote flooded forests of Cambodia's amazing Ramsar Wetlands. A boat will provide backup.
Many varieties of birds live in these forests.
Watch for Irrawaddy Dolphins
You will continue your trip to another part of the country along the Mekong river as we travel to the small town of Kratie. The stretch of the river around Kratie town is home to a group of rare fresh water Irrawaddy dolphins.
Kratie town is sleepy but picturesque with sandbars and big islands out front and bends in the river. Unlike many towns around Cambodia, the war years were fairly kind to the French architecture and the roads. In the afternoon you will go to Koh Trong island by ferry.
Together with your guide, you will cycle around the island and you’ll learn more about the island and the people who live there.
Marvel at the Mekong
Today, visit Phnom Sambok, a small mountain which has two peaks, one dull and the other pointed, and a lush forest filled with birds and some monkeys. Once at the top, you will be rewarded with a beautiful panoramic view of the countryside and the Mekong River.
After a traditional lunch overlooking the Mekong view, you will visit the famous 100-Column Pagoda and learn about its fascinating history as a place of pilgrimage for residents of Kratie. Afterwards, you will head to the Mekong Turtle Conservation Center to see the endangered Mekong soft shelled turtle.
The highlight of the day is a visit to one of the many deep pools where the rare river dolphins gather to feed. You will board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance encounter these gentle mammals.
Take a Trip to Serene Mondulkiri
Today you'll head to a different part of Cambodia, the province of Mondulkiri. Mondulkiri is an eastern province of Cambodia, which is the most sparsely populated province in the whole country although it is the largest province in Cambodia.
The province is full of natural beauty, with thickly forested mountains, powerful waterfalls and lush green rolling hills of the western side. Sen Monorom is the provincial capital and the only town the province has to speak of.
Enjoy this rustic, pristine place.
Spend an Entire Day With Elephants
Spend a full day with elephants, shadowing two families of elephants in the jungle in the morning and afternoon.
Learn about elephants, the local mahouts, the forest, and conservation. This is a highly unique experience and the first of its kind in Cambodia.
Admire the Stunning Skyline at Sunset
Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, it was once considered the 'Gem' of Indochina.
The capital city still maintains considerable charm with plenty to see. It exudes a sort of provincial beauty and tranquillity with its French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture.
At the end of the afternoon, go on a sunset cruise on the Mekong river. While having some snacks and a drink you can see the stunning sunset above the skyline of Phnom Penh.
Explore Phnom Penh on a Vespa
Sitting at the back of a Vespa, explore not only the highlights of Phnom Penh but the secret spots too. Start out learning about French influence on Cambodia while sipping on tea in front of the stunning Post Office. Visit Wat Phnom and see how this city got its name.
Make a drive to a local market where you can see overflowing baskets of famous Kampot pepper, fresh produce, and you will even get the opportunity to try a couple of local snacks. After exploring the local market, make a quick but intriguing stop at the Independence Monument & King Statue. Later, travel to the famous Royal Palace and beautiful riverside. The Phnom Penh city tour will finish at a less known Buddhist pagoda.
In the afternoon there will be a tuk tuk available to bring you to Tuol Sleng, the Killing Fields and other sights you haven’t visited yet.
