Three Day Immersion Experience 

DAY I
SUMMARY

Am. Sunrise @ Angkor Wat, breakfast supplied by hotel (in Angkor Park), Ta Prohm. Return to hotel for lunch.

Pm. The Bayon DESCRIPTION

A cool pre-dawn Remork ride will take us into the Angkor Park in time to catch the sun’s first rays rise over the towers of the world’s largest religious monument Angkor Wat.

We’ll find a shady spot for breakfast where your local guide will recount stories of the temples taking you back to life as it was during the Angkor era.

We continue to the stunning temple of Ta Prohm overrun with tree roots. Your guide will lead you through the ruins and help you capture some of those iconic photographic moments of temple and tree locked in silent battle.

We return to the hotel for lunch and pool time before heading out in the afternoon to the ancient city of Angkor Thom where your guide

will take you though back gates and onto the ancient city walls for a stroll through the forest that now surrounds these monuments.

The Bayon was the capitol for the greatest Angkorian King of all Jayavarman VII and his likeness looks down on you from the towers that top the temple. Most fascinating of all are the reliefs carved on the outer walls which tell of the battles both victories and defeats of his Empire and shed light on the daily lives of his people.

DAY II

SUMMARY
Am. Maichrey oxcart ride, countryside Khmer village discovery, lunch at a village house. Pm. Cooking Class
DESCRIPTION

A couple of kilometers in any direction and the bus loads of tourists and mayhem of the Siem Reap traffic become a distant
memory as you reach the outskirts of the
town and start to see life as most

Cambodians live it. This is where we’ll leave our car and head off by oxcart along small paths leading through rural Cambodia, where Khmers grow their living much as they always have.

The countryside is initially diverse as we
amble through open fields with views
stretching to the distant Phnom Kulen Hills.
Later we follow narrow tracks and explore the village, stilted wooden Khmer houses and their bare earthen yards with tethered cattle surrounded by fruit trees. This is where we meet the family and have lunch.

At 3.00pm you will be hosted by our Chef to an enormous local market located at the east of Siem Reap. The market tour takes an hour and returns to the hotel and

experiences a traditional cooking class.

Learn a little of the herbs used to create the authentic Khmer flavours, prepare a cocktail with a Khmer twist, and then cook up a storm all the with help of a knowledgeable chef.

Your experience includes three courses and a choice of drink.

DAY III

SUMMARY

Am. Maichrey Floating Village motorboat ride and kayak with lunch @ floating restaurant.

Pm. Visit Banteay Samrey / Banteay Kdei

DESCRIPTION

The temples of Angkor might be globally unique but so is the Tonle Sap Great Lake. The largest lake in South East Asia is filled once a year by a backflow from The Mekong River. By the end of October at the height of its flood the lake is 10 meters deep and 10,000 square kilometers. At it’s lowest point it covers just 2000 square kilometers and has a depth of 2 meters.

This means that anyone that wants to live close to the lake has to find a way of coping with it’s annual rise and fall. One solution is to build your houses on floating platforms of bamboo, which is what they do at
Maichrey where we are headed today.

We’ll pick up a motorboat at the boat station and head to where the channel widens before launching our kayaks and paddling through the village, where we’ll have lunch on a floating house.

The kayaks are a great way to get up close and personal but if you’d prefer to stay on the boat no problem and we can head out after lunch to grasp the scale of the lake.

This afternoon we’ll head into the Angkor Park to visit 2 of the less well-known temples. Starting with Banteay Kdei or Citadel of The Monks, it offers the perfect antidote to the crowds at the big 3 (Angkor Wat, The Bayon and Ta Prohm). Situated beside Sra Srang or The King’s Pool Banteay Kdei was built by The Great King Jayavarman VII. Tumbling overgrown courtyards and halls splashed

with colour from lichens and oxidation.

Banteay Samre just a couple of kilometers

to the North predates Banteay Kdei and was built by JVII’s uncle Suryavarman II (or SII). Situated near the banks of The East Baray,

a vast Angkorian reservoir there’s a lovely little walk through the local village and into the temple by the back gate.
