Imagine an ancient temple complex wrapped in vines and hidden in the vast equatorial jungle. This is Angkor Wat, a sprawling series of temples that are over 900 years old. As the center of the once mighty Khmer Empire, we’ll explore this ancient city with our dedicated guide diving into the beauty and grandeur of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In addition to visiting temples and Angkor Wat, experience the famous Cambodian performance setup by refugees of the Khmer Rouge era as a way to promote the arts and traditional Khmer culture. Then take a dive deep into the local culture where a monk will perform a private blessing ceremony before an opportunity to mingle with local community members about life in Siem Reap. Each night, settle into the charming four-star Shinta Mani Shack right in the heart of Siem Reap’s leafy center.
