Day 1 ARRIVE SIEM REAP

On arrival into Siem Reap you will be greeted by your Wild Frontiers representative and transferred directly to your hotel for check in. After settling in and freshening up, your guide will take you out to the temples where you can watch your first sunset from Pre Rup temple.

Day 2 SIEM REAP: TEMPLE HIGHLIGHTS

Wake up early and head to Angkor Wat for sunrise and a morning tour of the temple before the crowds arrive. Mid-morning enjoy your delicious packed breakfast before continuing to some of the smaller temples in the complex, including Ta Prohm Temple, where Banyon trees grow through the temple walls. Return to your hotel for a break and in the afternoon head back to the temples to visit Angkor Thom, the famous walled city and see the many temples within its borders, including the fascinating Bayon temple with its many magnificent faces smiling out.

Day 3 SIEM REAP: HIDDEN TEMPLES

This morning you will explore the hidden trails of Angkor as you set off by bicycle along ancient city walls and through hidden jungle temples, often free from other visitors due to their remote accessibility. After a delicious lunch overlooking the royal bathing pool of Sra Srang, your guide will then take you to an active temple, where you will experience the ceremony “Srouch Tec”, which roughly translates into “pour water”, as a monk washes away your sins and bad luck as he chants in ancient Pali. This evening you will be treated to a unique acrobatic and artistic performance by the Cambodian 'Phare Ponleu Selpak' Circus. Literally translated as ''the brightness of the arts'', this Artistic and Social Centre has been running as a non-profit association since 1994, and was founded by a group of young ex-refugees from Battambang Province.

Day 4 SIEM REAP - PHNOM PENH

You will catch a flight to Phnom Penh this morning. Once you’ve freshened up this afternoon you will set off on a tour of the city. After being destroyed by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, Cambodia’s capital city is now a thriving epicentre. Sitting on the banks of the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers with wonderful crumbling colonial architecture, it’s a city spinning into the future. You hit the ground running this afternoon, exploring the highlights of this truly fascinating city, including the National Museum and the Royal Palace. This evening you can enjoy sundowners overlooking the riverside before sampling some delicious local dishes in one of our recommended restaurants.

Day 5 PHNOM PENH

This morning head to the Tuol Sleng Prison Museum where our guide will explain the history of the Khmer Rouge and walk you through the different museum displays. You then continue on to the Choeung Ek Memorial, the site of one of the country’s many killing fields. This sobering visit offers an important insight into Cambodia’s tragic and very recent history. After returning to the hotel to freshen up you will set off on your private food tour to discover some of Phnom Penh’s best kept secrets, as you sample your way through some of the city’s most celebrated culinary delights.

Set off early this morning and enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle as you venture out into your natural surroundings, exploring by kayak and on foot, experiencing the beauty and remoteness of one of the world's largest rainforests.

This luxurious private island is the perfect setting to enjoy some well-earned R&R, where you can take advantage of a variety of activities and treatments across the island, or simply while away your time in the comfort of your private villa or lazing on the white sandy beach.
