Special Package for 4 Days 3 Night in Siem Reap
Day 1: Welcome to Siem Reap & Angkor Heritage Site
AM : Warmly welcome by our tour guide upon your arrival at Siem Reap airport and check in at hotel.
Then depart from Hotel to see the South Gate of Angkor Thom, the last capital of Angkor Period (AD 802-1432) until the 15th century, was indeed a Great City as its name implied. Bayon Temple, one of the most popular sites in Angkor complex and over 200 large faces caved on the 54 towers, which at that time represents the 54 provinces in The Khmer Empire; give this temple its majestic character, Terrace of elephant and Terrace of Leper king.
Then visit the jungle-like temple of Ta Prohm. The movement of the earth beneath distorts the high lichen covered walls. Build in AD 1186 by King Jayavarman VII. 800 years of history lie twisted and broken, with sinister root systems of huge trees enveloping doors and windows in a stranglehold. Trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars, and spread their gigantic roots over, under and in between the stones, probing walls and terraces apart, make this temple even more extractive. This amazing temple is a photographers dream!
Enjoy the lunch at Local Restaurant.
PM : Depart from the hotel Then, fulfill your dream by visit to Angkor Wat Temple, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Surround by a moat and an exterior wall measuring 1300 meters x 1500 meters. It is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. The walls of the temple are covered inside and out with bas-reliefs and carvings. Nearly 2000 distinctively rendered Apsara carvings adorn the walls throughout the temple and represent some of the finest examples of Apsara carvings in Angkorian era art.

Day 2: Explore Temple
5:00 AM : Depart from hotel and experience sunrise at Angkor Wat by enjoying picnic breakfast. The Sun was rise & bright; explores to Srah Srang, is ancient lake offer a pleasant, much less touristy sunrise alternative to Angkor Wat.
Pre Rup is superior temple-mountain, as well as an excellent view of the surrounding countryside.
East Mebone is a large temple-mountain-like ruin, rising three levels and crowned by five towers.
Then we take a drive of about 50 minutes to the most beautiful temple ‘Banteay Srey’ (citadel of the women),’ but this is a modern appellation that probably refers to the delicate beauty of the carvings and displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art. Built at a time when the Khmer Empire was gaining significant power and territory, the temple was constructed by a Brahmin counselor under a powerful king, Rajendravarman and later under Jayavarman V.
Enjoy the local style lunch at restaurant.
Then continue to visit NEAK PEAN; a small island temple located in the middle of the last baray (the Preah Khan Baray or Jayatataka) to be constructed by a Khmer king in the Angkor area. The central temple sits at the axis of a cross or lotus pattern of eight pools and coiled serpents, encoiled nagas that encircled the temple. The temple is faced by a statue of the horse, Balaha, saving drowning sailors. Though originally dedicated to Buddha, Neak Pean contains several Hindu images. During the dry season, the water is low and most photogenic in the wet season.
Near by, Preah Khan (Scared Sword) is a huge, highly explorer able monastic complex. Full of carving, passage made great photo opportunities. It originally served as a Buddhist monastery and school, engaging over 1000 monks. For a short period it was also the residence of King Jayavarman VII . Like most of Jayavarman VII’s monuments, the Buddha images were vandalized in the later Hindu resurgence. Some Buddha carvings in the central corridor have been crudely carved over with Bodhisattvas, and in a couple of odd cases, a lotus flower and a linga.
Back to the hotel for refresh and enjoy your evening with the Ancient Khmer Kingdom’s cultural dance show with buffet dinner
Day 3: Explore more in Tonle Sap (Great Lake) and Siem Reap
8:00 AM: After Breakfast at the Hotel, Tonle Sap; Great Lake – The Floating village of Chong Khneas south of Siem reap used to be one of the main entry points to Siem Reap and Angkor. It was an atmospheric but messy introduction to Tonle Sap life.
Enjoy the boat ride through Chong Khneas will allow you to see ordinary Cambodians Cambodian, Cham, Vietnamese living together on the boat going about their daily life in the floating village With over 200 tour boats. Fishermen, boat-makers, markets, Church, Police Station, schools, crocodile farm, spirit houses, restaurants and waving children are always in plentiful supply on this mesmerizing scenic route.
On the way back, Wat Athvea is an active Buddhist temple, is built next to an ancient Hindu temple. The temple’s design and distinctive style of the devata (sacred female images) inside indicate that it was built in the 12th century, during the reign of King Suryavarman II(circa 1,115-1,150 AD), who also built Angkor Wat. The temple is unusual because it lacks all but the most basic decorative carvings…with the exception of some exceptional Angkor Wat style devata.
Enjoy the lunch at Restaurant.
After Lunch, depart to Preah Ang Chek & Preah Ang Chorm Of particular importance to the locals as their wishes come true. It is containing two standing Buddhas of the names Preah Ang Chek (taller) and Preah Ang Chorm (shorter). They are surrounded by stories of power and indestructibility..
Then heading to Wat Bo Founded in the 18th century. A large, highly respected pagoda and it’s contains very unique wall paintings of the Reamker (late 19th century). Look for the ordinary-life market scenes such as an opium smoking Chinese merchant, the colonial era French officer at the market and the French soldiers attending a traditional dance performance. Also of interest is the large collection of Buddha statues located behind the main Buddha.
Again, Wat Thmei(killing field) ; Its contains a unique glass-walled stupa containing the bones of victims of the Khmer Rouge. Some of the bones were recovered from a nearby well while others are the remains of soldiers who died on a nearby battlefield.
