Siem Reap

Biking Tour to Angkor Thom &

After breakfast, we start on our bike and cycle to world heritage areas on the roads less travelled. Ride among the jungle passing local village and local shop. It’s a very special and acting day as you will explore some of Angkor’s most beautiful temples. You will visit the West Gate of Angkor Thom – undiscovered by mass tourist. ➢ The ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century) ➢ See the South Gate, Bayon Temple – unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara ➢ Baphuon temple lying just to the north of Bayon a pyramidal representation of mythical Mont Meru ➢ We step to see our old palace as Phimeankas temple in huge complex that was used for our king in the past time. ➢ Then Elephant terrace is platform for king and officer viewed show and people meeting. ➢ Preah Palilay was is older than Angkor Thom was nearby, deeply in forest and on path back You see monk sprinkle water to people. We also visit Ta Prohm "Tomb Raider" fame. Ta Prohm has been abandoned to the elements, a reminder that while empires rise and fall, the riotous power of nature marches on, oblivious to the dramas of human history. Left as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhout in 1860, the tentacle-like tree roots here are slowly strangling the surviving stones, man first conquering nature to create, nature later conquering man to destroy. We continue to the famous temple: Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is a World Heritage Site since 1992, famous for its beauty and splendor. Angkor Wat features the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls and narrates stories from Hindu mythology. Overnight in Siem Reap. Read more

Siem Reap

‘Flooded Forest & Floating V

After breakfast depart Siem Reap for the Tonlé Sap, driving down the eastern side of the lake. Arrive at Kampong Klaing, a remarkable village built entirely on stilts, where there is time to explore the various houses, school and shops before boarding your private boat. Cruise along a short tributary, passing fishermen and children playing in the shallow waters before arriving at a typical floating village where you may either disembark or cruise amongst the waterways. At the head of the tributary you will continue out on to the ‘Great Lake’ and continue traveling north to Kampong Phluk; a ‘flooded forest’. Accessible only during high water, you’ll pass through the tree tops whilst seated in your boat. Nearby is a fishing village where you will can also learn more about the traditional methods used for generations. Returning to the mainland, meet your driver and return to Siem Reap. Overnight in Siem Reap. Read more

Siem Reap

Discover The Lost City At Ku

Early start this morning at 8am to depart your hotel in Siem Reap for the drive to Phnom Kulen, considered the most sacred mountain in Cambodia. It was here that Jayavarman II declared himself a ‘god-king’ and gave birth to the Khmer Empire in AD 802. Arrive at the Kulen Mountain near the Preah Ang Thom pagoda. Meet your motodup (motorbike) driver who will take you for the next few hours around the mountain. You will ride as a passenger along bumpy or slippery country roads and tracks, over volcanic rocks and occasionally through shallow streams. The first stop is at Poeng Tbal where a riverbed reveals a well preserved stone with details of Shiva and Vishnu and the rocks carvings of Ganesh and wise men. A short ride on leads to one of the most important sites in all of Cambodia: a small pedestal that is set on top of three tiered pyramid temple called Prasat Rong Chen. Whilst there is little to see today the significance is huge: it is at this point that Jayavarman II declared himself the absolute monarch of the Cambodian Kingdom and announced independence from Java. The linga has been stolen from the pedestal but as you stand here take a few moments to contemplate that the Khmer Empire began at this very spot. Whilst the sites on the mountain have been known for many years to the Khmer people and those living on the mountain, it has only recently confirmed that Phnom Kulen was the location of Mahendraparvata. It was only discovered in mid-2012 as a result of Australian archaeologists using laser mapping equipment flying overhead. Mahendraparvata served as a huge service city for Angkor, a completely unrivalled urban landscape in the pre-industrial world. Head across more paths to a modern temple with colorful statues and a scenic view. Enjoy a simple, packed lunch at the temple dining room. Continue after a short break to a Bat Cave which with the help of torches you can enter for a few hundred meters and see a modern shrine. Both the cave and the temple attract many pilgrims to the area. A short distance on is Srah Damrei (or Elephant Pond). The life size stone elephant served as a guardian for the mountain. The smaller statues of lions, a cow and a frog will also impress. Head on to back to the starting point with some more stone carvings to be seen at Damrei Khrap (Kneeling Elephant). The motodup adventure then finishes at Preah Ang Thom. Two more stops are made before your return – the first one is a short visit to see the River of a Thousand Lingas – hundreds of the linga carvings can be seen on a stretch of the river. After visit Kulen Waterfall where you can take a refreshing bath. It is then time to drive back to Siem Reap. Enjoy foot massage 1 hour & walking at busy pub street where you can find many bars for cool drink or shopping at Angkor Night Market. Read more

Siem Reap

Siem Reap – Jungle Temple –

After breakfast, we continue to Preah Vihear. Our first stop at Beng Mealea is an overgrown ruin 90mn away from Siem Reap. It is huge, but little known and largely untouched. Besides this temple, we see a small quarry where sandstone was cut to build the temple. The technique used to cut the stones will be explained there. We may take more than an hour to visit the entire Temple. We arrive Svay Leu Village and start trekking into the bamboo forest from the village to Peuong Komnu, is a series of Angkorian reliefs carved into the southern cliff of Phnom Kulen, the quality of the work and their preservation is remarkable and the danger of inevitable of the site makes them all the more precious. It is undiscovered tourist site in Angkor areas. Last but not least for today is Koh Ker group is a group of many temples in the forest, about 150km from Siem Reap. These were built when Cambodia was ruled by two kings (uncle and nephew), and Koh Ker was briefly one of the two capital cities, during the 1st half of the 10th century. Some of the temples are still covered with jungle. Overnight at Preah Vihear. Read more

Preah Vihear

Preah Vihear – Preah Rumkel

After breakfast, we drive up to Preah Vihear, which sits at the top of the Dangrek Mountains. Preah Vihear is known as the Temple Mountain, which was built at the beginning of the 10th century as a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva. The temple had further works added to it by the following three kings. The temple today is still a Hindu site, but Buddhist Monks pray at the temple to the Gods. The temple area consists of three stories surrounded by two galleries. After we visit this landmark, we hit the road to the greater Mekong region. Traveling along one of the newest and remotest roads there are many opportunities to photograph and enjoy the nature. We arrive Preah Rumkel Community in the afternoon. We continue to Sopheakmet Waterfall; that thwarted the grand designs of French imperialists (and which now mark the Lao border). If time is available we will take the boat across the river to visit Hang Khone, which is the southernmost tip of Laos. The French used this as a ferry port where goods were then transferred back to the ferry by train before they continued their travel by river. Sunset here is some of the most beautiful sunsets across the Mekong River. Overnight Preah Rumkel Community Homestay. Read more

Preah Rumkel

Kayaking & Boat trip along M

After breakfast, we enjoy boat trip down to O'Svay where we will start our paddling tours to explore the remote flooded forests of the Mekong, Ramsa wetlands. It stretches south along the Mekong River from the border with Laos to Stung Treng. Only accessible by boat, it is a haven for critically endangered mammals, birds and fish and a unique riverine flooded forest system that is a photographer's dream. With only birdcalls announcing our presence, we maneuvered our way leisurely downstream for a couple of hours before reaching the only village on that stretch of the the river, Veun Sien, where we beached our kayak for lunch break and wandered around the village. Our paddling tour of the forest continue until one point that you feel enough, we will travel by boat which follow us back to O'Svay and travel with our van back to Stung Treng. We might arrive on time to view beautiful sunset over the river on Chinese-Cambodian Friendship Sekong Bridge. Overnight in Stung Treng. Read more

Stung Treng

Stung Treng – Kratie

After breakfast, we leave Stung Treng and travel on Highway 7 to Kratie. On our way, we visit the famous 100 pillars pagoda and learn its fascinating history as a place of pilgrimage for residents of Kratie. First built in the 16th century by King Chann Reachea. The pagoda includes 100 wooden columns to commemorate the memory of his daughter Vorakpheak who was killed by a Mekong crocodile. Afterwards we visit the Mekong Turtle Conservation Centre and see one of the most endangered Mekong softsell turtles. The project looks after baby turtles until they become big enough to protect themselves from big fish, snack, etc. We then reach Kampi, one of the many deep pools where the rare river dolphins gather to feed. We board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance encounter with these gentle mammals. Viewing is guaranteed. After enjoying an hour or more of dolphin viewing, we travel to a sleepy Mekong port and charming town of Kratie. We can stop at the hilltop temple of Phnom Sombok to watch sunset over the Mekong. We take a local ferry across the Mekong River to Koh Trong for a 9km cycling around the island. We will see farm of famous grapefruit and other seasonal fruit and vegetable as well as floating village. Overnight in Kratie. Read more

Arrive in Kampong Cham, we visit Wat Nokor also called Nokor Bachey Pagoda is an 11th century Mahayana Buddhist shrine made of sandstone and laterite with a large reclining Buddha and numerous alcoves containing Buddha images. We continue to Phnom Pros ("Man Hill") and Phnom Srei ("Woman Hill"). According to local tradition, two teams of men and women competed to build a stupa on the summit of each hill before dawn. After being tricked into thinking that daybreak had already come, the men lost the competition and, as a result, forever after had to be the ones to approach the women for their hands in marriage. En route, there is the chance to pause at Skuon, affectionately known as 'Spiderville', where it is possible to sample the local delicacy of deep fried tarantula. Overnight in Phnom Penh. Read more

Initially you visit the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum (also known as S21), ironically a former school, located in a quiet Phnom Penh suburb, this was the infamous Khmer Rouge prison / torture center. We enjoy our cyclo ride along the riverside. This laidback tour gives us a different perspective of the streets and sights of the city.

Situated at the “Four Arms” where the Mekong meets the Tonle Sap River before splitting into tow branches, Phnom Penh offers the ideal location to discover the mighty Mekong.
