Cambodia – Angkor Wat Extension

$795 Adult* / $695 Child*


Our Purpose

Cambodia is a gorgeous country still untapped by the tourism industry. This country is the birthplace of the great Angkor Empire, which ruled over Southeast Asia during its peak from the 11th to 13th centuries, with many temples from this time period miraculously still standing today.

Step back in time on this 3 day/2 night post-trip extension, explore the face-towers of Angkor Wat, experience the famous Cambodian Circus Show, the Citadel of the Women, and 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.


What You'll Do

In addition to visiting temples and Angkor Wat, your time will be coupled with a visit to the “pretty” temple of Banteay Srei, also known as the Citadel of the Women. This remains the best preserved temple in Cambodia and is the only temple build of pink sandstone. We then head to a local pagoda where a monk will perform a private blessing ceremony before an opportunity to mingle with local communities to learn more about their everyday life. After lunch, explore Siem Reap’s colorful markets.

For a deeper dive into current Cambodian culture, enjoy an evening of culture at Phare Cambodian Circus Show, setup by refugees of the Khmer Rouge era as a way to promote the arts and traditional Khmer culture. Expect to see acrobatics tell the story of modern life in Cambodia through a rich spectacle of song and dance.


What You'll See

Start your first morning in Cambodia with a sunrise over Cambodia’s five iconic towers, including Angkor Wat. On this full day of exploring, start by visiting Bayon, the temple at the center of Angkor Thom city. Explore the upper platform where the temple’s iconic face-towers are located before heading to Ta Prohm, the temple made famous by Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, and gaze at the gorgeous trees and vines growing atop the temple wall. The final stop of the day is the incredible Angkor Wat.As you journey through the sprawling temple of Angkor Wat, it is easy to see why it has become the symbol of Cambodia. A 12th century structure that took 30 years to build, the temple is full of carvings and beauty that you won’t soon forget.

Traveler's Journal

“I wasn’t sure if my kids would truly understand how incredible the temples of Cambodia really are, but the whole three days were fun and lighthearted. While my husband and I were amazed we were experiencing such an iconic place as Angkor Wat, the kids loved the faces on the temple and being able to explore hidden rooms. The circus show was a big hit, and the country certainly had a different feel when coming from Thailand, making it worth the short flight. A great way to cap off the trip!”
