Day 01 : Siem Reap

Panorama Museum.JPG

Welcome by your local English-speaking guide at Siem Reap Airport. Transfer to the hotel.

In the afternoon, visit of the Panorama Museum, a first insight of the Angkor Archaeological Park. The first part of this museum is devoted to the presentation of the main temples of Angkor. You will then get close to a realistic 360 degree painting, representing the different elements of everyday life during the Angkorian era. You will end the visit with the projection of an animated film explaining the incredible organization needed for the construction of the site.

Dinner at your own expense

Overnight in a hotel in Siem Reap.

DAY 02 : SIEM REAP 

Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure by Tuk-Tuk from the hotel for a morning dedicated to the visit of Angkor Wat. You will visit this place from where King Suryavarman II reigned over the Kingdom of Cambodia from 1 113 to 1 152. This temple fulfills the fundamental law that governs every work of art and that a building can be read from a single one and his unit of composition appears immediately. The pyramidal plan of the temple, combined with the vastly clever perspectives of the avenues and the basins, allows the architectural line to assume its importance and indicates a mastery of composition never equaled.

Lunch at your own expense

In the afternoon you will continue with the visit of the Banteay Kdei Temple, a 12th century Buddhist temple built in the Bayon style. Then, you will continue towards the Ta Som Temple and its beautiful door invaded with lianas. Stop at the Mebon temple as to admire its sculptures dating from the Hindu period of the 10th century before climbing the steps of the temple of Pre Rup at sunset.

Dinner at your own expense.

DAY 03 : Siem Reap 

Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure by vehiclefrom the hotel to reach the archaeological site in the morning. You will enter the Ta Prohm, "the ancestor Brahma", to enjoy magical moments in this temple which has been left partly in the state of nature in order to preserve the memory of the visions of the discoverers who revealed Angkor to the West. Here, the stone and roots of century-old kapok tree are embraced. You will continue mountain biking on a laterite trail through the forest to reach the small temple of Ta Nei lost in the forest. The trail passes by the small French bridge before reaching the temple of Preah Khan. Enigmatic in many ways, it was built by King Jayavarman VII who dedicated it to his father. Its specificity is to be the only building with round columns. (7km of mountain bike on flat track and groomed of soil and sand).

Lunch at your own expense

The afternoon is dedicated to the discovery of the great hydraulic city of Angkor Thom. King Jayavarman VII had a laterite bulwark built in a square of 3 kilometers on the side, supported by raised earth with an outer moat of 100 meters wide to protect his city from the invaders.

After admiring the enigmatic doors of this city, you will go on foot to visit the Elephants' Terrace where the king and his court attended the games and processions and then the enclosure of the royal palace with the Phimeanakas. After, you will reach the Bayon, central temple of this fortified city.

The Bayon presents at first glance a disorder of blackened stones and a tangle of some fifty face towers. You will end the day with a bicycle ride on the ramparts and admire the setting sun on the Angkorian forest. (7km of mountain biking on flat tracks and groomed with sand and earth)

Dinner at your own expense

A few kilometers away you will reach Banteay Srei, "the citadel of women". Located 30 km northeast of Angkor Wat, it is one of the most perfect and most endearing architectural creations erected in Cambodia. The buildings that have preserved a finely carved decoration in the pink sandstone have made the celebrity of this temple.

Surrounded by a beautiful garden of almost one hectare, the house has five bays and is covered with tiles bearing the inscriptions Phuc-Lôc-Tho (Happiness-Prosperity-Longevity). Preceded from a porch and a courtyard, it includes columns of lim wood (iron wood). The front house, five spans and European style, is reserved for the reception of visitors. The ancestor altar is in the middle of the central span, the rooms are behind.

Your vehicles will be waiting for you at the tourist port of Cai Be to take you to Saigon (about 2h30 drive).

Ho Chi Minh City was nicknamed Saigon, the "pearl of the East" and the "Paris of Asia". Founded under the Second Empire, Saigon was the capital of Cochin China (today Nam Bô), the only territory constituted as a French colony (the other two, Tonkin and Annam, being protectorates).

Built on the site of an ancient Khmer city, Prey Nokor, it is today, the great metropolis of the South, which includes Saigon and Cholon, is the largest city of the country, and also the economic and commercial capital.

Day and night, the streets echo the incessant blows of horns and the roar of a thousand mopeds that crisscross the city. The French presence is still marked by long, shady avenues dotted with colonial houses, gardens and monuments that contrast with the buildings of many modern buildings and hotels.

Dinner at the Hoa Tuc Restaurant, located in the old buildings of an opium refinery, 100 meters from the Saigon Opera House.

DAY 10 : HO CHI MINH – DEPARTURE

Lunch at the restaurant Nha An Ngon located on Pasteur street, you will have the opportunity to see the preparation of the dishes in a completely traditional way.

The atmosphere is unique and truly authentic. You will meet there few tourists but on the contrary many locals who come here as a family as the cuisine is appreciated there.

Then you will continue with the Presidential Palace renamed Reunification Palace or Liberation Palace, a real symbol of the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975: "At 10:24, the president of South Vietnam announces the capitulation. At 11:30 am, North Vietnamese tanks destroyed the doors of the Palace, the flag of the Viet Cong is hoisted on the roof.”

You can continue the discovery of the city by passing through an emblematic place of the former French Saigon of the beginning of the 20th century: Cercle Sportif Saïgonnais. It was officially created in 1902 to provide cultural and sporting activities for the French community of Saigon although it represented at the time less than 5% of the total population of "Grand Sai Gon" which included Saigon, Cho Lon and the seaside resort of Cap Saint-Jacques.

It was therefore an elitist club where people could only enter through sponsorship. Fencing, tennis, rugby, dancing, billiard and petanque were taught and practiced there with its famous club "la boule gauloise" ... It was enlarged several times and the last inauguration took place on December 5th, 1925. In September 1933, the outdoor swimming pool was inaugurated, which marked the culmination of this very popular club, some high-level sportsmen and women were recognized in France. It is a very pleasant place where it is good to share a moment with the Vietnamese sports enthusiast, the time of a petanque game in the shade of the centenary trees or swimming in the swimming pool whose structure remained identical to that of the time. Possibility to continue walking towards the park Tao Dan which is only a hundred meters from the Circle.

Transfer to Ho Chi Minh International Airport and continuation of your trip in South-East Asia.
