Day 1 Highlights

Siem Reap


Angkor Wat Sunrise

Angkor Wat Sunrise

Witness sunrise along with a breathtaking view of an ancient Cambodian complex, Angkor Wat. Tucked deep inside the tropical forest of the country, Angkor Wat is the former capital of the expansive Khmer Empire. You will be energized by the refreshing morning breeze and lifting fogs as it blows through the complex as you witness how the sunrise transforms the surroundings into a dramatic landscape.

Monk Blessing

Monk Blessing

One very personal way to experience Cambodia in even more depth is to participate in a blessing ceremony at a wat, or temple. A monk blessing is a tradition that dates back hundreds of years in Cambodia, and is performed for special occasions and auspicious dates, as well as any average day and for any person who would like to be blessed.

Ta Prohm Temple

Ta Prohm Temple

The temple of Ta Prohm was used as a location in the film Tomb Raider. Although the film took visual liberties with other Angkorian temples, its scenes of Ta Prohm were quite faithful to the temple's actual appearance, and made use of its eerie qualities.

Angkor Thom Complex

Angkor Thom Complex

An easy mistake made by many visitors to Cambodia, is that Angkor Thom is “another temple”. It’s not, it’s a whole city. “Angkor” means “city” and “Thom” means big – so the clue is in the name: Angkor Thom refers to what once was a great Khmer city and includes a whole host of temples and sites of historical interest.

Interestingly, there are 216 faces on the Bayon temple.

Phnom Bakheng

Phnom Bakheng

A pyramid shaped temple consisting of 7 levels, symbolizing the sacred Mount Meru and the 7 Hindu heavens. 108 towers were arranged on the ground and upper levels of the temple, symbolizing the 4 lunar phases of each 27 days long. Unfortunately, most of these towers collapsed.
