The wonders of Angkor in 3 days
Hello to you, ladies, gentlemen and dear children. It is with great pleasure that I invite you to discover the wonders of Angkor in the space of 3 days, allowing you to explore them at your own pace.
Our itinerary begins with a visit to the Bakong site, a pre-Angkorian temple. This set includes the Bakong, the first mountain temple in architecture, as well as the Preah Ko which does not fail to impress. Then we will head to the ruins of the Toteugn Thngnai temple, subtly concealed by bamboo. Once there, you will truly feel a bewitching atmosphere.
In the afternoon, we will have the opportunity to visit a village where the houses are built on stilts, an adaptation to the rising waters. Indeed, the Tonlé Sap is a true “inland sea” of fresh water in the country, the level of which can vary from 4 to 10 meters during the rainy season.
For the second day, an early wake-up call is necessary. Sunrise at Angkor Wat is an unmissable experience. With a departure from the hotel at 5am, don’t forget to bring a light jacket, because it will be cool. However, the temperature will rise rapidly as soon as the sun comes out. Then we will go to Angkor Thom, the ancient capital of the Khmer Empire at the end of the 12th century. Surrounded by ramparts over an area of 9 km², the Bayon sits at the center of this ensemble. The majesty of the Baphuon and the grandeur of the terrace of the elephants will not fail to impress you. We will conclude this second day with the visit of Ta Prohm, known worldwide for its gigantic tree roots which mingle with the towers of the temple.
On the third day we will explore the grand circuit. The Preah Khan, one of my favorite temples, stands out for its grandeur and perspective. The Neak Poan, with its singularity, stands out from the other temples of Angkor. The Ta Som offers an intimate atmosphere. Le Mébon, featuring terraces and carvings of elephants, will pique your interest.
For lunch, I will drive you to a village famous for its curry rice vermicelli or lemongrass fish soup. These dishes are extremely popular in my country, available anytime and anywhere.
Once sated, we will visit the Banteay Srei, a true sculptural masterpiece, followed by the Pre Rup, our local version of the “tower of Pisa”.
I hope to have the pleasure of accompanying you very soon, ladies, gentlemen and dear children.
