Here’s your chance to discover all that Siem Reap and the ancient Angkor sites have to offer. Our 4-day tour digs deep below the surface to reveal an insider’s understanding of the world’s largest religious structure, the mysteries of Angkorian art and architecture, and the ancient history of the Khmer people. Your exploration will combine lesser-seen temples and ruins with a hit list of the most iconic Angkorian sites, as well as opportunities to support community projects and sustainable tourism.
You’ll start your tour of discovery with a special sunset visit to Angkor Wat. Long after the crowds have gone, you’ll have the famous temple to yourself to view the bas-relief Apsara dancers gleam in the twilight. An exploration of the early Angkorian temples of the Roluos Group will reveal a slice of history that many leave unseen and undiscovered, and at Roulos Pagoda, you’ll be blessed by Buddhist monks wishing you a safe and happy journey.
Your inner archaeologist will marvel at the stunning sites along the Small Circuit, including atmospheric Ta Prohm, majestic Angkor Thom, and enigmatic Bayon Temple. A delectable dinner of Khmer cuisine at the stylish Madame Butterfly will fortify you for an exploration of Bateay Srei, “the gem of Angkor” the next day. Before you leave, you’ll have the chance to hunt for souvenirs at community-supported artisan workshops and take an unforgettable boat tour of Tonlé Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, considered by Khmers to be the lifeblood of their people.
