Duration: 12 days
The temples of Angkorean Cambodia are some of the most evocative monuments to survive from the medieval world.
Built at the command of indigenous Khmer rulers, but in an Indic style, they represent a level of cultural fusion rarely paralleled elsewhere.
Commencing in the city of Siem Reap, visit the pearls of Cambodian Hindu and Buddhist architecture in Angkor itself, including the decorated Terrace of the Elephants in Angkor Thom and the temple of Ta Prohm. Beyond Siem Reap, we will visit other famous temples at Koh Ker, Beng Mealea, Preah Khan of Kampong Svay, Banteay Chhmar, and the spectacular cliff-top temple of Preah Vihear in northern Cambodia.
- Visit the majestic Hindu and Buddhist temples of Medieval Angkor with their magnificent bas-relief wall carvings
- Experience the tropical Cambodian landscape and its rice fields, villages and distant mountains
- Enjoy a one-day tour from Siem Reap to the oldest standing temples in Cambodia at Sambor Prei Kuk
