Spend two days exploring the mesmerising temple complex of Angkor Wat – the largest religious monument in the world. Wander through its fascinating ruins, some of which have been enveloped by the surrounding jungle, and discover the rich stories it has to tell. Then cruise through the floating villages of Tonle Sap for a glimpse into everyday rural life for Cambodians and soak up the natural beauty of this atmospheric lake.
Angkor Wat was originally designed as a Hindu temple complex dedicated to the god Vishnu during the Khmer Empire. Over time it was gradually transformed into a Buddhist place of worship and is considered one of the most impressive examples of high classical Khmer architecture. On this two day tour, you will have time to experience Angkor Wat’s highlights and watch both sunset and sunrise over this unforgettable landscape. After exploring Cambodia’s historic legacy, you will also get an insight into how life is for local people today during a relaxing boat cruise along Tonle Sap. Visit its peaceful floating villages and meet the fishermen who carve out a living in this unique environment.
