Program

Day 1: Taste Siem Reaper flavor

Upon your arrival in Siem Reap, you will meet your tour leader at the hotel. Then your guide will give you details about the trip. You will have time to rest and you will then start your food journey. The first stop is the local restaurant where you will taste fruits, spring rolls, tofu, and barbecued snails.

You will then go to the night market, where you can try some bugs, fantastic barbecued chicken, whilst enjoying a cold beverage sitting on a mattress alongside the street market. Please note, your guide would be very careful to make sure everything you eat is clean and well-cooked.

You will then visit the Sambai Siem Reap liqueur house where you will learn how Cambodian liqueur is made and visit the infusion room. There you will be invited to try rice whisky in various flavors. Finally, you will transfer back to your hotel around 8:00 p.m. Meal provided for the day is dinner.

Day 2: Cycle the Angkor temples

After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found - overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.

You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.

You will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.

Lastly, you will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your tour leader, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.

Meals included: breakfast and lunch.

Day 3: Discover the floating village and sunset cruise

Today, discover the great landscape of the Tonle Sap lake by bike and boat. This is a unique experience offering a great outdoor adventure into Siem Reap’s countryside by exploring a floating village and enjoying a sunset cruise along the river.

This tour will take you on the charming backroads in order to explore the local ways of life in Siem Reap. You will be greeted by friendly locals and get a deeper understanding of their lives and traditions. The journey will end at the Tonle Sap lake, where you will experience the livelihoods of Cambodian people living in the floating villages, offering you the opportunity to see how families adapt their life to living on the water.

At the end of the day, you will catch the sunset on the lake with some snacks and cold beverages. You will return back to the city by a private vehicle in the late evening.

Day 4: Village cooking class

Discover the wonders of Cambodian culinary by going to a village cooking class. Prepare to visit local markets, village life, and landmarks while whipping up delicious dishes.
