Welcome to Cambodia.

Day 2: Siem Reap – Angkor Wat (B,L)

After breakfast, you will be picked up by a tuk-tuk (the famous Asian tricycle consisting of a motorcycle and a cabin) to explore one of the largest and most beautiful temple complexes of the world, Angkor Wat, together with a guide. The world heritage temple originates from the 12th century and is an experience of mystique and beautiful sculptures. First, we will visit Angkor Wat itself and we will walk between one of the most important temple of the no less than 110 temples. Before we continue we will quench our thirst with a soda or perhaps a fresh coconut? A short drive takes us to Angkor Thom, which consists of, among others, the 12th century Bayon. The 54 four-headed Buddha statues are one of the most impressive sights of the temple complex. Later that day, we will visit the Ta Phrom temple. This is one of the few temples that has been kept in its original state. It has become famous because of the movie Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie. The temple is partly overgrown with trees with gigantic roots, that have ‘nestled’ themselves on and in the stone blocks.

Day 3: Siem Reap – Beng Melea – Phare Circus (B,L)

In the morning we will visit the mysterious 12th century temple in the middle of the jungle in Beng Melea. This temple is heavily overrun by vegetation, like tress, vines and moss. After this we continue to the largest floating village of Kampong Kleang. During the dry season you can walk between the stilts on which the houses are built, rising up to 10 meters in the air. In the wet season the lake reaches peak level and water rises till one or two meters of the building floors. You will enjoy a boat tour through the village and have the chance to meet the locals. On the way, you will get water and fruit and a pick nick lunch. Later, we will have jeep ride back to your hotel.

In the evening we will bring you to Phare the Circus. The Cambodian Circus tells uniquely Cambodian tales using modern circus arts and high energy music, touching on themes strong in Cambodian tradition, ethos and spirit. The performances mix theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, aerial acts, fire and contortion with an explosion of virtuosity and sensitivity. During the hour-long shows, the Phare performers share their emotions and excitement, blowing the audience away with their integrity and power.

In the afternoon, we’ll use a different means of transportation and travel to the genocide museum, called S21 Tuol Sleng, by tuk-tuk. This place used to be a high school and was used as the most notorious prison S21 of the Red Khmer-regime that lasted from 1975 until 1979. We will continue our day tour by leaving the city and visiting the horrible place called Choeung Ek, better known as the Killing Fields, where thousands of people were tortured and buried in mass graves. On the way back to the hotel we’ll stop at one of the local markets.
