Enjoy the scenic in the warm light of early morning by taking a local boat around the village and learn how the local fishing communities live, work and trade.

Unique amongst Angkorian temples, Banteay Srei’s pink sandstone certainly sets it apart from its neighbours. Not only known for its vibrant colour, the ‘Citadel of Women’ is also renowned for its astonishingly intricate bas-reliefs, which are widely acknowledged to be the best of any temple in Cambodia. So well does this pink sandstone lend itself to this style of carving that the beautiful designs have survived almost completely undiminished for over a millennium.

Continue to the Banteay Srei Butterfly Centre, an interactive butterfly farm nestled in a luxurious tropical garden. You can see thousands of free flying Southeast Asian species will surround you.

Apsara dance is an essential part of the Khmer culture. In line with Cambodian mythology, Apsaras are beautiful female creatures that visit Earth from heaven to entertain both gods and kings with their enchanting dance, and thus originated the Apsara dance. Proclaimed as a UNESCO Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2003 and dates back to the 7th century, Cambodians have been able to keep the dance alive and become the representation of the ancient culture. Spend your night coming back to the wealth and prosperity of the Empire by captivating Apsara dance while enjoying a tasty dinner.

Discovery the nearby hamlet of traditional Khmer houses on foot. Encounters with the locals will allow one to discover the daily life of this people with a glorious history. Enjoy breakfast at a village before getting closer to Angkor’s ancient wonders.

The 500-acre Angkor Wat is one of the largest religious monuments in the world and represents the architectural pinnacle of the Khmer Empire. Originally dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, it has remained a place of worship since its founding in the 12th century. Thought to be a miniature replica of the universe, its composition of towers, moats and concentric walls reveals an architectural sophistication, and the bas-reliefs with their plump figures and triumphal battle scenes reflect a robust, healthy and wealthy period of history.

Enjoy a lunch (own expenses) and take a short break. Then, discover Angkor Thom where is not the temple but an entire huge walled city of 9 square kilometres and the royal Capital from 1181. With a population of 1 million, it was far bigger than any city in Europe at the time. Visit the richly decorated Bayon temple at its heart, where 216 enigmatic gigantic faces of King Jayavarman VII smile down at you from every tower.
