Angkor Wat is one of the most prominent attractions in all of South East Asia, with its many carved-stone faces standing as silent witnesses to former days of glory. We start the trip in vibrant Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, and visit the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, a somber reminder of the reign of Pol Pot. The revitalized city is also home to Wat Phnom, as well as the Silver Pagoda which is located in the Royal Palace.

Start the day from the National Museum. The place houses an impressive collection of numerous statues, sculptures, bas-reliefs and so on. It is the perfect place to learn about Cambodian history and art.

We then head to the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, the iconic historical sites in Phnom Penh. With unique Cambodian style and ornate structure, the buildings inside the palace are adorned with diamonds, jewels, gold, and silver.

You'll visit the Tuol Sleng Prison Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek tell the story of the tragic legacy of the Khmer Rouge.

Then pay a visit to Wat Phnom, the temple that gave rise to the foundation of the city in the 15th century. Later you head out of town to a working monastery to learn more about the life of a monk and Theravada Buddhism.

breakfast and lunch

Spend a full day visiting the amazing temples of Angkor on a guided exploration. Angkor Wat is the largest and most complete structure, and the only one of Angkor's temples that has its entrance facing west – the others face east. Then there is Angkor Thom, the 'Great Royal City', a temple famous for its series of colossal human faces carved in stone. Of all the temples visited today, Bayon temple is the centerpiece, with over 200 smiling carved faces and more than 50 gothic towers. After lunch it's off to the Ta Prohm Temple, which has large trees embedded in the stone foundations of the structure - powerful symbols of nature.

Embrace a very early start today if you wish to experience a sunrise visit to the Angkor complex (this is optional). From here, continue onto Banteay Srei. You'll see it's not a huge temple, but thanks to its intricate stone carvings it is sometimes referred to as 'the jewel in the crown of Angkorian art'. You can carry on exploring more temples, such as Preah Khan. This temple contains a maze of vaulted corridors and is another complex that has been largely reclaimed by the jungle.
