Classic Cambodia 5 Days
Avada Travel Cambodia – Cambodia Travel Agency – This five-day comprehensive tour of Cambodia includes the most popular sights in the country’s capital of Phnom Penh and the Angkor Complex in Siem Reap. As with all our tours, our unique tailor-made service enables you to make amendments, additions or any other modifications to the itinerary. You can start the trip in either Phnom Penh or Siem Reap.
Day 1: Phnom Penh Arrival (D, G)
Arriving at Pochentong airport in Phnom Penh, you’ll be met and driven to your hotel. You’ll have time to relax after your journey before a sunset cruise on the Chatomouk River. In the evening, you’ll enjoy the welcome dinner at a local restaurant. You’ll spend the night in Phnom Penh.
Day 2: Phnom Penh (B, L, G)
The day will be taken to visit the National Museum where exhibits 5000 objects including Angkorian era statues, lingas, artefacts – most notably the legendary statue of the ‘Leper King” – and a good collection of pieces from later periods. You’ll call in at the Royal Palace and the nearby Silver Pagoda.
After lunch, your guide will show you Wat Phnom and the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum. Your overnight accommodation will be in Phnom Penh.
Day 3: Phnom Penh/Siem Reap (B, L, D, G)
After breakfast and a morning flight to Siem reap, you’ll visit to Angkor Thom, starting with the Bayon, a bizarre structure of several architectural changes reflecting a switch from Hinduism (the foundations) to Buddhism (the superstructure). Your next visit will be to the Elephant and Leper King Terraces followed by the Baphoun Temple, which is now nearing the end of an eight-year multi-million dollar restoration programme. In the afternoon, you’ll explore Angkor Wat itself, the largest, and for most people, the most impressive temple in the complex after which you can watch the sunset from the top of Phnom Bakheng Hill. Your overnight stay will be in Siem reap.
Day 4: Siem Reap (B, L, G)
Your day will be taken up with visits to some of the outer sites including Preah Khan, a huge and highly explorable monastic complex, Neak Pean, a Himalayan-style lake and sanctuary, and East Mebon, a temple-mountain. After lunch, you’ll also see Ta Prohm, strangled by massive tree roots and typical of the condition of the whole complex when it was discovered in 1860 by French naturalist Henri Mouhot. Your guide will then show you the Prasat Kravan (also known as the Cardomom Sanctuary) and Srah Srang lake and landing terrace. The Srah Srang is less touristed and could be sunrise alternative to Angkor Wat.
Day 5: Siem Reap Departure (B, G)
After breakfast, you’ll be picked up to visit Roluos Group, a collection of Hindu monuments representing the remains of the first major capital of the Angkorian era. You’ll start from the Bakong temple, sitting in the centre of the first Khmer capital, the temple displays a very early use of stone. Preah Ko (Sacred Bull) derives its name from the statues of the bulls at the front of the central towers and Lolei temple consists of four brick towers on a double laterite platform. The rest of the afternoon is free until you’re picked up for your departure flight – Cambodia Travel Agent.
“We had very good guides”
“Mr Phuoc was outstanding. His command of global events and being able to put Vietnam into international context was impressive. Very personable, knowledgable, flexible and enthusiastic. A real ambassador for his country while also recognising the shortcomings and opportunities facing Vietnam. He didn’t just repeat history about sights, but he actively sought our own views and then worked out what would be of interest and why. If we were to revisit Vietnam, or recommend a top guide, it would be Mr Phuoc”
“Thanks to Avada Travel Team”
“I am very pleased with how much effort the booking agents put into helping me customize my trip. They were receptive to my input and understanding when I wanted to make changes. They also helped me put my itinerary together very quickly. I booked the trip less than two weeks before I travelled. Avada Travel was successfully able to get me a visa in time for my trip with the strict time constraint we were working under.”
“I will come back Vietnam”
“I wish I had time to see Sa Pa. I am already trying to figure out when I can go back to Vietnam just so I can visit Sa Pa. Even though Ha Long Bay is incredibly beautiful and it was one of my favorite places, I wish I had opted to visit Bai Tu Long or a nearby area instead. Ha Long Bay was so overcrowded and touristy, it was disappointed to be stuck in such a limited area of the Bay when it is so vast. I would recommend that travelers explore their options and stay in nearby areas Cat Ba, Bai Tu Long, Lan Ha, etc and spend more time.”
