Day 9FULL DAY TRIP TO PREAH KHAN, BANTEAY SREI & TONLE SAP LAKE [Guide/B]

Citadel of Women

Departure is at 6 am with the first destination being Preah khan. This temple is huge, open and sprawling and usually there are not many visitors at this time of the day which makes for a wonderful afternoon visit. Images abound of the Garuda; the mythical bird of flight, grasping the tails of his adversary the serpent, Naga. a narrative on the temple follows before leaving via the east entrance (please insist that your guide shows you the sacred female figures, a very special secret hidden from the world but well worth a few moments). From here a visit to Banteay Prei, again a very open temple set on the edge of rice fields; this temple has all the attributes of a larger temple in reduced scale. Visiting Banteay Prei after Preah khan makes an interesting comparison. Next a visit to Neak Pean, where pools of water were believed to have curative powers

 

Next destination is to the remote temple known as Banteay Srei, which takes approximately 45 minutes travelling time from Amansara. This temple is famous for the delicacy of sculpture. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to avoid the crowds at this spectacular temple. After Banteay Srei, a journey back to Banteay Samre, we leave the main road and head east over an embankment of the ancient reservoir of the eastern Baray. From here a short walk on a country track leads to the north gate of the temple. Banteay Samre is often enjoyed in solitary splendor as the day begins. On the journey home, an alternate route offers some of the most spectacular rice paddy views in Siem reap.

Tonle Sap lake

Once you’ve spent a few days exploring the temples of Angkor and you are ready for some time out we have the perfect antidote for you aboard our renovated local motor boat. Explore the nearby lake of Tonle sap visiting the floating and stilted villages of Chong Kneas and discover the varied plant, fish and bird life that make this huge inland lake such a valuable ecosystem to Cambodia and Southeast Asia

 

Day 10SUNRISE AT ANGKOR WAT & TA PHROM + LOCAL BREAKFAST EXPERIENCE AT KHMER VILLAGE [Guide/B]

Capturing the atmosphere of the temple first by moon-light and then inside as the sun rises is our preferred way to present this magnificent monument. First destination is the east causeway to Angkor wat. Your guide will escort you through the entrance gate along a forested path and then into Angkor to the 1st level and up to the 2nd level of the temple providing time for personal exploration. All being well, you should witness dawn with very few others. Afterwards, following a brief introduction to temple life and Suryavarman II, you return to the first level which contains the bas-reliefs that feature the stories of the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the ‘churning of the sea of milk’. The extensive relief panels are the main feature of the morning outing. You depart Angkor Wat by way of the cruciform terrace, passing the libraries and the grand entrance pavilion before crossing the west causeway.  If you are not after the perfect Angkor sunrise photograph and crowds of other travelers are of no concern to you then things are a little more leisurely. A suggested wake-up call at 5.00am with a departure from your hotel at 5.30am, with your destination the main entrance to Angkor Wat and the west causeway. Your guide will escort you along the cruciform terrace and to the southern library where the sun rises behind Angkor Wat reflecting in the pools adjacent to the great temple. Once the sun has risen, the outing will continue following a very similar format as mentioned above. It should be stressed entering Angkor Wat from the west gate is how the majority of visitors experience this great temple, subsequently much of the atmosphere can be lost due to large crowds.  Next stop is Ta Prohm, one of the most popular temples in the park. Once home to 615 exquisite dancers, the one hour spent within Ta Prohm provides the opportunity to ponder, not only in man’s ingenuity, but to witness the forces of nature as the forest has gradually taken a firmer hold over the temple ruins. It is ideal for exploration, photos and contemplative time. Try the local traditional Khmer noodle breakfast at Preak Dak Khmer Village House before returning to your hotel for your second breakfast at the hotel.

Free at leisure to explore the town. Overnight in Siemreap

Day 12MEKONG DELTA EXCURSION (GUIDE/B/L)

At the pier, embark on a fascinating motorboat excursion to start with a quick visit of Cai Be floating market. Then, the rowing boat will take you deeper into the countryside on smaller canals to enjoy the peaceful time. Back to our boat to go across one of the longest Mekong river. fish farms and scenes of countryside living. Arrive at An Bình Island. Head to handmade canal to Ut Trinh homestay & enjoy a lunch.
