DISCOVERY OF THE MAJOR TEMPL

Breakfast at hotel Your exploration starts in the morning with the visit of Angkor Thom (the Great Angkor/City) and get started with the monumental Southern Gate lined on both sides with the Gods and the Giants; it is one of the five gates leading to the Bayon Temple and Center of the Khmer Empire, so you may understand the strategic structure of the first Angkorian King from the XIIth century who embraced Mahayana Buddhism as the State religion.

DAY 8

KBAL SPEAN, THE RIVER SOURCE

Breakfast at hotel On this third day in Siem Reap/Angkor, early in the morning, we will take you to the visit of Kbal Spean and the site of the One-Thousand Linga River that has its source at Phnom Kulen (the Litchi Mountain). Take an approximately 45-minute trek (about 1.50 km) through the forest up to the top and be rewarded by your effort! Assimilated to the Ganges River in India, the very bed of the river is carved on over 200 meters long with 1.054 lingas and sculptures representing the Hindu Gods in the Ninth century. The water feeding the Steung Siem Reap River in the lower part is thus being “sanctified” after rolling and passing over the thousand carved lingas, thus, fertilizing the lower valley and Angkor Plain. Lunch by own account. Then, visit Banteay Srey Temple, considered as the Jewel of the Classic Khmer Arts. Cleared from the creeper plants and trees that invaded it, Banteay Srei - which means “the Citadel of Women” - is indeed of an absolute and rare beauty and fineness. Every single detail of this sculpted pink sandstone temple is a real enchantment to the human eyes. On the way back, we will take you to the visit of Ta Prohm Temple, and be amazed by the “temple in the jungle”! Your end of the afternoon will be devoted to admire this unique work. One of the most extraordinary works of nature is concentrated here in this temple where huge cheese makers extend their roots through stones lifting them, and gradually disrupting the original configuration of this temple. This work, built by under the reign of the great "Angkorian Builder King", is also dedicated to the Mother of the Builder King, Jayavarman VII. Dinner by own account. Accommodation at hotel.

DAY 9

BEYOND ANGKOR: KOH KER & BOE

Breakfast at hotel In the morning, a road journey to Koh Ker takes you through the Cambodian countryside, and further to the Northeast of the Kulen National Park. A further 85 kms from the small village of Seong, passing through some remote villages and a beautiful forest populated by deer, be amazed by the imposing pyramid temple that dates back to the 9th to 12th century, and which is also known by its ancient former name Chok Gargyar. The ensemble consists of five successive brick towers aligned in a single row – a not so common style indeed – with the massive pyramid at the background. The site of this former capital city – and contemporary to Angkor itself – is covered with an impressive 80 known-temples! Lunch by own account. On your way back to Siem Reap, the little temple of Boeung Mealea (11th century) is indeed worth a visit! The vast expanse of this “Jungle Temple” covers an approximate 1.20 square kilometers and is being invaded by the forest. Built in the Angkor Wat style, Boeung Mealea must have served later on of a prototype of sort for Angkor Wat, and is located at about 60 kms from Siem Reap (about a 2hr30 road journey time). Its solemn beauty is certainly due to its peaceful and out-of-time atmosphere and to the constant fight between Mother Nature and the Mineral Stones! Dinner by own account. Accommodation at hotel.

Sophie, France

Le voyage était organisé avec une partie circuit (3 jours à Siem reap, 2 jours à Pnohm Penh, Koh Dach, Kampot) puis quelques jours de farniente à Kep. L'organisation All Dreams était très bien gérée et nous a permis de découvrir ce pays. Notre contact local Ratha nous a suggéré des circuits tout en s'adaptant à nos envies et demandes. Un coup de coeur pour Preah kan au petit matin sans autres touristes! L'organisation permettait de visiter et de profiter de l'hôtel et de la piscine dès le milieu d'après midi. Et bravo à notre guide sur la partie temples dont la culture, les connaissances et le français sont d'un niveau remarquable sans oublier l'humour (Bunthorn Nhep). Bref, un voyage très agréable et sans mauvaises surprises! Our trip consisted in a tour across Siem reap (3 days), Phnom Penh (2 days), Koh Dach and Kampot then a few days of rest in Kep. The All Dreams team did a good job in making us discover the country. Ratha who was our local contact proposed tours that suited our needs and tastes. We really loved the visit of Preah kan early in the morning without any other tourists. The planning allowed us to make visits in the morning and enjoy the hotel swimming pool in the afternoon. Hats off to our guide for the temples! His culture, his knowledge and his French are all remarkable. Not to mention his sense of humor! In a word it was a very pleasant trip without any bad surprises! Read more
