Day 2: Phnom Penh sightseeing

Pick up at 07:30am: We will explores the pagoda Wat Ounalom, the place originally built to medium confidence you from the 15thcentury, is the most important of Buddhist Khmer in Phnom Penh. Unfortunately recently rebuilt as a "copy", the Khmer Rouge had almost destroyed the Wat when they took the city in 1975.
We continue to visit the impressive colorful Khmer-style Royal Palace complex build in 1866 by the
Predecessors of King Norodom. Nearby is Silver pagoda (the emerald Buddha temple), where contain plenty of Buddha Statues decorated and made by gold, diamond, gemstone and silver.
Walk up to sacred hill Phnom Daun Penh – also the name of a pagoda and name of the capital nowadays. We will stop at Central Market is located in the heart of the Phnom Penh. The Khmer name of the market is Phsar
Thmei, which translates to “new market”. The Central Market was built in 1937 during the French colonial period, in Art Deco style, and is painted bright ochre.
We visit Tuol Sleng prison now is Genocide Museum, the most secret part of the Khmer Rouge regime. It’s also called S-21 (abbreviated for Security Office 21), a Khmer Rouge's premier security camp, specifically designed for the interrogation and extermination of anti-Angkor elements.

Day 4: Angkor Thom & Ta Prohm & Angkor Wat

08:00: Pick up from your hotel. After meeting our tour guide, then we drive to Angkor Thom that was the masterpiece of King Jayavarman VII. Following the occupation of Angkor by the Chams from 1177 to 1181, the new king decided to build an impregnable fortress at the heart of his empire.
We begin to visit Bayon Temple. At the exact center of Angkor Thom, this is an eccentric expression of the creative genius and inflated ego of Cambodia’s most celebrated king. Its 54 towers are each topped off with the four faces of Avalokiteshvara (Buddha of Compassion), which bear more than a passing resemblance to the king himself. We continue to 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.
We journey out to the Mother of all temples, Angkor Wat. Believed to be the world's largest religious building, this temple is the perfect fusion of symbolism and symmetry and a source of pride and strength to all Khmers.
Dinner with Apsara Dance show at local restaurant.
For those travelers thirsting for cultural highlights of Cambodia, No visit to Cambodia is complete without attending at least one traditional Khmer dance performance, often referred to as 'Apsara Dance' after one of the most popular Classical dance pieces. Traditional Khmer dance better described as 'dance-drama' in that the dances are not merely dance but also meant to convey a story or message.

I am very impressed by the people and the nature. Very nice and friendly people who always greet you with a smile. The food is delicious and healthy. You get the best services everywhere. Especially recommended is the temple Angkor War near the city of Siem Reap. You should definitely try the Palm sugar as well as the sticky-rice. It is sold directly on the street, you can taste it safely. Furthermore, the Pub Street is an absolute must! It's right in the city center and easy to get to. I wish you a pleasant stay here

The best tuktuk driver and guide. He is recommended by other travelers in our group. Can speak very good english and he is very responsive in facebook messenger. He was very kind to offer service from the bus station to the hotel for free! We took the night bus at Phnom Penh and arrived very early in the morning at Siem Reap.

The Service took great care of my husband and I on our visit to Angkot Wat in early morning. It was very hot and humid, we each carried water and we always had extra bottles for us. it was perfect itinerary of what we preferred to see and tailored the tour to suit. the guide was very knowledgeable about the site, particularly the carvings and we enjoyed his great sense of humors. Highly recommended.
