A visit to Cambodia wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the iconic Angkor temples. For those feeling a bit adventurous, explore the impressive sites on a bicycle tour or choose to tour by bus and receive a monks blessing.

Become immersed in the local life and culture, visiting a floating village and embrace your inner ‘Indiana Jones” exploring the forgotten temple of Beng Mealea. Alternatively combine history and nature visiting the impressively preserved Banteay Srei temple and wandering through the jungle, admiring the spectacularly carved riverbed of Kbal Spean. Learn about wildlife conservation efforts at the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity and uncover Cambodia’s painful past at the Landmine Museum.

Enjoy the highlights of Phnom Penh visiting the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, National Museum and Wat Phnom Temple – the birthplace of Phnom Penh. Learn about Cambodia’s recent grim history at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum then sample a taste of daily life at the Central Market. Alternatively take a tour behind the scenes discovering lesser known corners of the city. Enjoy a bicycle ride around a scenic island on the Mekong River and stop in to a silk weaving workshop. Finish the day with a stroll through the garden complex of the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda.

Siem Reap International Airport → Siem Reap

Sua s’dei and welcome to Siem Reap! You are welcomed at the airport by your driver and guide who will transfer you to your hotel in the city centre (rooms are available from 2pm).

Overnight stay in Siem Reap at Tara Angkor Hotel in a Superior Room.

Siem Reap International Airport → Siem Reap
Day 2
Siem Reap

Enjoy your pre-selected tour from our Freedom of Choice options:

  • Angkor Wat by Bicycle Tour - The Angkor temples are undoubtedly the main highlight of any holiday in Cambodia. After a short car transfer to the buffer zone of the temple complex, hop onto a mountain bike and venture out on an extraordinary ride. Adaptable in length (from 15 to over 40 kilometres), this tour will take you on the back roads of the temples complex to visit the three major sites: Bayon, Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat temples; as well as a ride along the top of the Angkor Thom city walls. Enjoy photo breaks along the way and let the guide tell you more about these massive pieces of history. As you ride along the single trails through the thick forest of the complex you will also have the chance to spot some lesser known temples lost among the trees. This tour is for everyone who can cycle, there is no specific level of fitness required and a support car remains nearby in case you want to take a rest from cycling.

OR

  • Angkor Wat by Bus & Monk’s Blessing – After breakfast, meet your guide in the hotel lobby for today’s tour of the Angkor temples. First you will explore Angkor Wat, easily the most famous and best-preserved of all temples within the Angkor complex. It is a massive three-tiered structure crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65-metres from ground level. Next, visit the ancient walled city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. Bayon Temple, Baphuon, the royal enclosure, and the Terraces of the Elephants and the Leper King are the main elements of this 12th century masterpiece. A lunch break will be arranged in a local restaurant and will be at your own expense. We continue to Ta Prohm Temple, which, unlike most of other Angkor temples, has been left just as it was when rediscovered: a photogenic and atmospheric maze of trees growing out of the ruins. After your visit to Angkor temples, take a break and meet with a local monk. You will be invited to take part in a blessing ceremony. Witness monks chanting blessings as they sprinkle you with holy water. Afterwards, a sacred bracelet will be tied around your wrist which is said to protect you from evil spirits and misfortune.

Overnight stay in Siem Reap at Tara Angkor Hotel in a Superior Room.

Day 3
Siem Reap

Enjoy your pre-selected tour from our Freedom of Choice options:

  • Kampong Khleang & Beng Mealea - After breakfast, you will head out to Kampong Kleang floating village, which is a stilt-houses settlement of over 20,000 people where structures can tower up to ten metres above the water. Greeted by waves of the friendly locals, here you can glimpse Cambodia’s countryside culture and traditional family lifestyle. To get closer to it, you will have a chance to enjoy a home-hosted lunch and dine on stilts. In the afternoon, we transfer to the forgotten temple of Beng Mealea. After a short walk through a dense jungle, you'll feel like an explorer when entering the completely overgrown temple. Undiscovered for centuries, Beng Mealea has only recently been made accessible and remains unrestored. It is one of the very few temples that will give the opportunity to climb through it, giving a very 'Indiana Jones' feel to the experience. In the evening, enjoy a dinner with the Apsara dance show. 

Note: From February to August/September the water level of the Tonle Sap Lake is very low. Its muddy and the boat can get stuck. If you are still keen on having a boat trip on the lake, we’ll change to Chong Kneas floating village instead of Kompong Kleang where the condition is a little bit better for the boat trip.

OR

  • Banteay Srei, Kbal Spean, biodiversity and war history – This tour offers a nice blend of temples, cultural sites and the outdoors. You will depart your hotel early, at 7am, and head to Banteay Srei temple, located about an hour drive away from the town. Easily recognisable by its pink sandstone, the "Citadel of Women" is reputed as being the most beautiful and best preserved of all Angkor temples. Marvel at the sophistication of its intricate bas reliefs before continuing the journey further north to Kbal Spean. This is one of Cambodia’s earliest Hindu sites and refreshingly different from the other Khmer monuments. Take a 3-kilometer walk through the jungle to appreciate the scope and beauty of Kbal Spean. The walk ends at the ‘River of 1000 Lingas’, a riverbed featuring stone carvings of Hindu gods, animals and phallic symbols. Learn about the history of Hinduism in Cambodia while exploring this unique river. After a local lunch, you will visit the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB), the first nature conservation project in Cambodia. A knowledgeable staff member will explain about the threats to Cambodia’s wildlife and the efforts of ACCB to protect the environment and promote wildlife conservation through education. For the last stop on the drive back to Siem Reap will be at the Landmine Museum. This is a private museum founded by Aki Ra who used to be a Khmer Rouge child soldier. After the war was over, he decided to clear the landmines off the fields of Cambodia and devoted his life to help the victims of landmines. We return to Siem Reap in the late afternoon, and the rest of the day is at leisure.

  • Phnom Penh Highlights Tour – After breakfast in your hotel, you will meet your guide and visit historic sites such as the famous Royal Palace, the adjoining Silver Pagoda, and the National Museum, a treasure chest of Angkorian and pre-Angkorian artefacts. After the museum, scale the steps up this small hill to see Wat Phnom Temple, the birthplace of Phnom Penh. In the afternoon, you will gain insight into Cambodia's recent history on a visit to the remarkable Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. It is a grim but important visit that will help you to understand Cambodia better. Spend the rest of day shopping at the Central Market, where you can get a taste of the bustling daily life of local people. Try some of Cambodia’s local specialties, while appreciating Phnom Penh's mix of Khmer & Colonial architecture styles. 

Note: To see the Royal palace and silver pagoda in Phnom Penh, visitors are required to wear appropriate clothes. Guests wearing short pants (above knee level) and sleeveless tops are not permitted.

OR

  • Phnom Penh Behind the Scenes Tour – Get ready for a fun and experiential day around some lesser known corners of the city. The guide will pick you up at the hotel and you will travel by local ‘remork’ to a district outside of the city centre. Enjoy a local coffee on the street, visit a true local market (Orussey Market), wander around narrow alleys and immerse yourself into the fascinating daily life of the locals. Later on, take a ferry to an island on the Mekong River. There we start a 15-kilometre bicycle ride on a small concrete road around the island; offering the opportunity to soak up a bit of rural life just outside Phnom Penh as well as to visit a silk weaving workshop. You will stop for lunch at a local home. Return to the city afterwards and you will have some time to discover the tragic history at the Tuol Sleng museum. The day continues with a stroll in the garden complex of the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda before ending in style with a drink on a rooftop terrace with the best views over Phnom Penh’s riverfront.

Why do some packages not offer the ability to Book Now on the website?

If a package on our website does not include our Peace of Mind Booking Plan, it will not be available to Book Now.

Due to the boutique nature and limited capacity of some travel experiences offered, they have strict payment and cancellation policies. (e.g., a remote bear lodge in Canada with only a few cabins).

Although technically possible, we have decided that it is impractical for us to try and sell these type of travel services on-line. We believe it is important that such product is discussed, so that we can ensure these strict payment and cancellation policies are understood before we proceed with a booking.

For such product we may act as an agent only for the principal suppliers. Where we act as agent, your contract for the delivery of travel arrangements will be with the principal supplier and will be subject to their Booking Conditions.

Can you book my international airfares?

Following customer feedback, we do not include international flights in our holiday packages.

We found that many customers may prefer:

  • To travel on specific airlines
  • Have the flexibility to book flights with Frequent Flyer points
  • Select flight dates that may be different to the package start/end dates
  • Use their travel agent for this service

However, we are able to assist, so please just notify us during the Book Now process or contact our team.

Should I take travel insurance?

Travel insurance is strongly recommended. During the Book Now process please confirm you require assistance, and our team will be in contact with you.

What should I do before travelling?

Before you travel it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate documentation including visas. If you are travelling on a passport other than Australian or New Zealand, you will require a permit to re-enter Australia. It is your responsibility as the traveller and/or travel booker to meet all government entry requirements.
