Cambodia In Style

10 Days from US$5,870 per person

PRIVATE TOUR - NOT A JOIN-IN TOUR



Treat yourself to the best Cambodia has to offer with this luxury 10 day tour. Start with a visit to the temples of Angkor the ABOUTAsia way - without the crowds. Experience sunrise at Angkor Wat, visit jungle-clad Ta Prohm and gaze on the enigmatic faces of the Bayon. Visit one of the stilted villages on the Tonle Sap and head into a countryside little changed since the days of Jayavarman VII. Fly to bustling Phnom Penh with its fascinating museums giving a vivid insight into the country's recent tragic past, then end your stay with 3 nights at Song Saa Private Island, the first resort of its kind in Cambodia, offering 27 over-water villas reminiscent of the Maldives.

ITINERARY DETAILS

day 1Arrive in Siem Reap where you will be met by your expert ABOUTAsia guide and transferred to your hotel. This afternoon enjoy your first taste of Angkor with a visit to Banteay Kdei temple followed by sunset drinks on the moat of Angkor Thom, a world away from the tourist crowds.

day 2A single, magical day at the temples following our well researched crowd avoidance itinerary, including Ta Prohm of ‘Tomb Raider’ fame, Angkor Thom: Terrace of the Elephants, Terrace of the Leper King, Preah Palilay, Phimeanakas, Baphuon, and the Bayon with its captivating stone faces. During your tour enjoy a wonderful tuk tuk breakfast in the secluded forest temple of Ta Nei. (B)

day 3Take a private boat onto the Tonle Sap lake, the richest freshwater fishing ground in the world, to visit one of the authentic stilted villages (either Kompong Kleang or Kompong Phluk depending on water levels). A picnic lunch is included. In the afternoon head into the countryside to jungle-clad Beng Mealea temple which, in a much collapsed state, retains a very atmospheric feel. (B, L)
