Adventure Cambodia (9 Days)

Cambodia is a country of unique charm and cultural heritage known across the globe for its incredible natural beauty, breath-taking temples, fertile rice fields, and rich and fascinating history. But with so much to see and do outside of Angkor, a vacation to Cambodia can be a lot more than just temples. With a long coastline and rugged countryside, the natural delights of Cambodia are every bit as appealing as those of its neighbors, from jungle treks to beach holidays. Cambodian people are also remarkable, offering a unique warmth and friendliness that is even more special considering their recent dark history.

Phnom Penh, the vibrant capital of Cambodia is situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap. Phnom Penh still maintains considerable charm and tranquility with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture.
Deep in the forests of Cambodia’s Siem Reap province, the elegant spires of an ancient stone city soar skyward above the sprawling complex of Angkor Archaeological Park. By its enormous scale and amazing architecture, Angkor Complex is without a doubt one of the world´s most spectacular sites.

The proximity of the Angkorian ruins turned Siem Reap into a boomtown in less than half a decade. Huge, expensive hotels have sprung up everywhere and budget hotels have mushroomed. Despite the massive shift in its economic fortunes, Siem Reap remains a safe, friendly and pleasant town. 
A trip to this heart-shaped country is something special, and Auroratravel can easily design tailor made tours together with other countries in the region including Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.

Adventure Cambodia takes in all the major sites while putting an active spin on the trip including cycling, river cruises and ruin exploration by foot.

PHNOM PENH - BATTAMBANG - SIEM REAP - TONLE SAP LAKE

Itinerary
 
DAY 1: PHNOM PENH ARRIVAL (D)

Arriving at Phnom Penh International airport in Phnom Penh, you’ll be met and driven to your hotel. In the evening, you'll enjoy a welcome dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight in Phnom Penh.


DAY 2: PHNOM PENH (B,L)

The day will be taken to visit the National Museum where 5000 objects are exhibited including Angkorian era statues, lingas and artefacts – most notably the legendary statue of the 'Leper King". You'll call in at the Royal Palace and the nearby Silver Pagoda. After lunch, your guide will show you Wat Phnom and the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum. You’ll have time to relax at your hotel before a sunset cruise on the Chatomouk River. Your overnight accommodation will be in Phnom Penh.


DAY 3: PHNOM PENH – BATTAMBANG (B,L)

Transfer to Battambang province (The distance from Phnom Penh is 291km, crossing the provinces Kandal, Kompong Chnnang and Posat, and will take around 4hrs). En-route, you’ll stop at Kampong Chnang for a short cruise to visit Cambodia’s largest floating village, and visit a local traditional hand-made pottery village. Arriving at the colonial town of Battambang, you’ll check-in to your hotel.


DAY 4: BATTAMBANG CYCLING DAY (B,L)

After breakfast, you’ll have a guided tour of the city, before taking your bicycle to ride the narrow roads to the ‘Bamboo Train Station’, where you’ll board a bamboo ‘train’ for the 8 km journey through the beautiful landscape, passing local houses and rice paddies. Disembarking, you’ll then continue with an Ox-cart ride to visit an ancient house and agricultural village, growing rice and a variety of naturally-grown tropical fruits. After lunch at a local farmer’s house, you’ll visit “La Maison de Coco”, specializing in silk and rattan weaving, before returning to Battambang. The remainder of the day will free at leisure.
“La Maison de Coco” is closed on Sundays. Note: This day is set in joining tour. If your family wants a private arrangement, additional charges will be applied.


DAY 5: BATTAMBANG – SIEM REAP (B/L)

After breakfast, you’ll be driven to Siem Reap, stopping en-route to visit the Silk Farm at Phouk, where you can observe the entire silk creation process from the growing of mulberry bushes and breeding of silk worms, through to the finished product. Arriving in Siem Reap at around noon, you’ll check-in to your hotel with the remainder of the day free at your leisure.
 

DAY 6: SIEM REAP (B,L)

After breakfast, you’ll visit Angkor Thom, starting with the Bayon, a bizarre structure of several architectural changes reflecting a switch from Hinduism (the foundations) to Buddhism (the superstructure). Your next visit will be to the Elephant and Leper King Terraces followed by the Baphoun Temple, which is now nearing the end of an eight-year multi-million dollar restoration program. In the afternoon, you’ll explore Angkor Wat itself, the largest, and for most people, the most impressive temple in the complex after which you can watch the sunset from the top of Phnom Bakheng Hill. Overnight in Siem Reap


DAY 7: SIEM REAP (B,L)

Your day will be taken up with visits to some of the outer sites including Preah Khan, a huge monastic complex, Neak Pean, a Himalayan-style lake and sanctuary, and East Mebon, a temple-mountain. After lunch, you’ll also see Ta Prohm, strangled by massive tree roots and typical of the condition of the whole complex when it was discovered in 1860 by French naturalist Henri Mouhot. Your guide will then show you the Prasat Kravan (also known as the Cardomom Sanctuary) and Srah Srang lake and landing terrace. The Srah Srang is less touristy and could be a sunrise alternative to Angkor Wat. Overnight in Siem Reap.


DAY 8 : SIEM REAP/BENG MELEA TEMPLE/TONLE SAP LAKE (B,L)

After breakfast, your guide and driver will drive you 50km through the countryside, the rice fields alongside the Kulen Mountain range to Beng Mealea Temple complex. Beng Mealea is almost the size of Angkor Wat and is one of the largest ensembles built during the Khmer reign but is still seldom visited. Its galleries, pools, libraries and sanctuary lie under fig-tree roots and creepers and are waiting to be discovered. The decoration of Beng Mealea is simple but you can still find bas-reliefs showing scenes from the Khmer Mythology. You’ll have a picnic lunch before driving back to Siem Reap in the afternoon. There, you’ll embark on a boat trip on Tonle Sap Lake, a natural reservoir that partly controls the level of floods in the Mekong Delta, and visit a floating fishing village en-route. For the reminder of the day you will be free to explore the city. Overnight in Siem Reap.

DAY 9: SIEM REAP DEPARTURE (B)

Your own leisure time until your departure flight home or next destination.
