Day 1: Phnom Penh 

This adventure kicks off tonight with a group meeting at 6pm. Look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, maybe arrive a day early so you're able to attend. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. At the meeting have your insurance details and next of kin information ready for collection. The best way to get into the groove of Phnom Penh is to eat its food, so start with a nom banh chok from a local street vendor. 
  • Accomodation: Guesthouse (1 night)

Day 2: Phnom Penh 

This day begins with a cyclo sightseeing tour of Phnom Penh, a quirky mix of romantic Indo-China charm, poverty, modern development, friendly locals and cheeky tuk-tuk drivers. After this we recommend taking an optional visit to learn more about the country's history and the Khmer Rouge atrocities at the Choeung Ek Killing Fields and the infamous Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. The rest of the day is free to explore the city. If you're in the mood for some shopping then check out the Psar Thmei (Central Market), located in an old French colonial building, for clothing or sarongs. Otherwise maybe stop by the temple of Wat Phnom, the National Museum, Royal Palace or the French Quarter. Tonight’s dinner is a real treat, as you'll enjoy a home-cooked meal in a local family's home.
  • Accomodation: Guesthouse (1 night)
  • Included Activities: Cycle tour & Home cooked dinner

Day 3: Siem Reap 

Today you’ll leave Phnom Penh behind and hop on a public bus (the most exciting of all buses) to Siem Reap (approximately 7 hours), your base for exploring Angkor. Before the temple-fest tomorrow, take an orientation walk around the town with your leader and then enjoy some free time to sample local snacks, haggle for souvenirs at the market or get a pedicure from thousands of tiny fish.
  • Accomodation: Hotel (1 night)
  • Included Activities: Siem Reap - orientation walk

Day 4: Siem Reap

It’s time for the main event with a whole day to enjoy a guided tour around the unforgettable temple complex of Angkor. Begin with a seriously photo-worthy sunset over the temples, which were built 800 to 1,000 years ago when the Khmer empire was the number one power in South-East Asia. The temples are thought to represent the cosmic world and are about balance and symmetry – simply put, the carvings and designs here are mind-blowing and boggling. The main cluster of temples is close to Siem Reap so you'll have loads of time to get to the best of this archaeological site, visiting highlights like the South Gate of Angkor Thom, the many faces of Bayon, the Elephant Terrace, the terrace of the Leper King, the jungle-covered Ta Prohm and, of course, Angkor Wat.
  • Accomodation: Hotel (1 night)
  • Included Activities: 1 day Angkor Pass & Angkor Temples Guided Tour

Day 5: Siem Reap 

Today’s a free day in Siem Reap, giving you the chance to kick back and just wander around the town, visiting its market, shops and restaurants, or to otherwise join one of the many optional activities on offer. If you’re still hungry for temples then maybe visit the rose-coloured Banteay Srei, considered to be the best preserved of all of Cambodia’s temples. If you want to see more of local rural life then take a trip into the countryside with a local site guide or maybe a boat ride on Tonle Sap Lake, passing the floating fishing villages there. If you want to get more active then join the Gibbon zip line adventure and get your heart pumping as you fly like a bird through the jungle.
  • Accomodation: Hotel (1 night)
