Details Itinerary:
 
 Day 1: Arrival- Siem Reap (L/D)  
 Arrive at Siem Reap International Airport and transfer to the hotel (rooms may not be ready until the afternoon). The same morning visit  the ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century), see the South Gate with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk, Bayon temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with 216 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara, the Elephants Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, lunch at local restaurant.
 
In the afternoon, visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat, the temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat's five towers symbolize Meru's five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond. Then view the twilight on natural hill at Phnom Bakheng. Overnight in Siem Reap
 
Day 2: Discover ancient temples complex (B/L/D)  
After breakfast, visit Preah Khan temple, built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Continue your visits to Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool and representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake and visit the temple of East Mebon (guarded at its corner by stone figures of harnessed elephants, some of which are still in a reasonable state of preservation) as well as the mountain-temple of Pre Rup, and lunch at local Restaurant.
In the afternoon, visit unique interior brick sculptures Prasat Kravan, Banteay Kdei,  Srah Srang ("The Royal Baths"), undoubtedly used in the past for ritual bathing, Ta Prohm.  One of the area's most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Its appeal lies in the fact that, unlike the other monuments of Angkor, it was abandoned and swallowed by the jungle, looking very much the ways most of the Angkor temples appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. Visit as well as Takeo, Chau Say Tevoda and Thommanon. Overnight in Siem Reap
Day 3: Explore Holy Phnom Kulen – Kbal Spean & Banteay Srey (B/L/D))    
 After breakfast, drive through the typical Khmer countryside to the holy Kulen Mountain range which provided some of the stones used to build the Angkor temples. With beautiful sceneries to admire on the way up, our vehicle will bring us on a steep dirt road to the top of the mountain. There we first will see the site of the Lingams carved in the riverbed by successive kings of the Angkor period and a walk further will bring us to the site of a huge natural rock with on top a big reclining Buddha carved in the rock. Our walk will also bring us to a waterfall, don’t forget your swimsuits and join the locals! More carvings in the riverbed can be discovered above the waterfall. This is also a very popular place for Khmer people to come and enjoy their weekend with a picnic. Lunch box will be provided at the site.
 
We later continue to Kbal Spean to visit the carvings here, the holy mountains of Kbal Spean and Phnom Kulen offer a great escape from the plains around Siem Reap. Both are considered holy sites by Khmer people as the springs that come from these mountains flow into the Siem Reap River and Tonle Sap Lake, giving life and fertility to the lands of Cambodia. Both mountain rivers have carved riverbeds, complete with lingas and image of Hindu Gods such as Shiva and Vishnu, hence the name ‘The River of a Thousand of Lingas’. Kbal Spean is surrounded by lush jungle and a beautiful spot for exploring on foot.
On way back, visit the unique temple Banteay Srei temple (10th century), regarded as the jewel in the crown of classical Khmer Art. Experience a home stay for overnight at aural village.
 
Day 4: Angkor National Museum & Floating Village (B/L/D)
 After breakfast at hotel, in the morning visit the Angkor National Museum, the first museum in Siem Reap presenting a unique collection of invaluable art objects from the ancient Khmer Kingdom, to have a deeper understanding of customs, traditions and different beliefs of the ancient empire. Then continue to Wat Thmei, Skulls of victims of the killing fields. The Buddhist Temple (Wat) is also known as the Killing Fields Pagoda as it contains a glass-walled stupa containing the bones, skulls of victims of the Khmer Rouge, which are gathered by local residents in memory of friends and family and villagers who died.  Wat Inkosei built on the site of an ancient temple, which still remains and to Wat Bo pagoda to view its well-preserved paintings. You will also observe monks making the various moldings, which adorn the pagodas.
 
In the afternoon, visit a floating village and take a traditional wooden boat for a ride on the Tonle Sap Lake, the Great Lake of Cambodia, one of the largest in Asia. On way back, visit Les Artisans d'Angkor or Chantiers Ecoles and shopping at local market in Siea Reap. Overnight in Siem Reap
