A bit of history: Stretching over some 400 square kilometers, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire of the 9th to the 15th centuries, including the largest pre-industrial city in the world. Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, built by Tamil King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation - first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. In the late 13th century, Angkor Wat gradually moved from Hindu to Theravada Buddhist use, which continues to the present day. Angkor Wat is unusual among the Angkor temples in that although it was somewhat neglected after the 16th century it was never completely abandoned, its preservation being due in part to the fact that its moat also provided some protection from encroachment by the jungle. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors. Day 5: Siem Reap. Spend your last day in Siem Reap on day 5, your head full of great memories. Check out of your hotel this morning. End of trip.

Siem Reap

Day 1 Siem ReapArrive in Siem Reap at any time. Included arrival transfer to your hotel.Day 2 Angkor Complex (B)After breakfast you will be met at your hotel by a local guide and set out for the Angkor Complex (6km from town) for a private tour. You will start exploring the Angkor Temples including the south gate of Angkor Thom and all the way to the Bayon and circle around the Bayon temple. You will then continue exploring the mysterious Royal city Angkor Thom. Its 50-tower temple is an awesome sight. At first glance it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are engulfed by the silent, heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes, staring out from a primitive and remote time. Further, you will visit the surroundings of the complex including the Baphou, Elephant Terraces, Lepper King Terrace and Royal Place area. In the afternoon, you visit the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat - one of the world’s most impressive ruins. The temple still owns fine Apsara carvings in Angkorian era art.Day 3 Angkor Complex (B)After breakfast, you will visit the picturesque Ta Prohm that had nearly disappeared into the jungle and remains an overgrown,oddly haunting and exotic scene. The magnificent roots of a tree, pushing between the huge stone blocks of the temple in a sort of embrace, evoke feelings that you may remember forever. You take a drive to the rural outskirt 35km from the town and visit to BanTeay Srei, the birthplace of Khmer classical style architecture. This is a small temple but with carvings which are impressive. In the afternoon, visit the local markets and school of arts called Artisan D’angkor for shopping.Day 4 Siem Reap (B)Depart Siem Reap at any time.

Visit the 8th Wonder Of The World

The magnificence of Angkor Wat is testament to Khmer genius. Said to be the world's largest religious building – along with the 3,000 unique heavenly nymphs carved into the temple walls, it's the soul and iconic attraction of modern Cambodia. Siem Reap is the gateway town to Angkor Wat and the locals are enjoying the tourism encore here. Wherever a holiday in Cambodia takes you, you'll soon realise this is a country striving futureward, away from the sharp shadows of the past.

Cambodia: Ta Prohm TempleTa Prohm Temple

Phnom Penh is the capital. It's more on the undiscovered tourist route at the moment, so why not start your holiday here and explore before everyone comes for a taste this metropolis on the Mekong? This is an older Asian city, no flash technological wizardry here; there are the sounds (and smells) of motorbikes and life. Street stalls will give you a taste of the city you're unlikely to forget and it may be tricky to digest the recent history examined at the Tuol Sleng Museum but if you can stomach it, you'll be changed.
