Secrets of Angkor Overview
Uncover Cambodia's secrets from Angkor Wat to Siem Reap.
Uncover the secrets of Cambodia’s mystical Angkor Wat region during three full days of exploration and adventure. Investigate these sacred temples and explore from Angkor Wat to Ta Prohm with a knowledgeable local guide. Be awed not only by the ruins but by stories of god-kings and lost civilisations, ancient mythology and fascinating folklore. Trek through the dense, steamy Cambodian jungle to admire Hindu sculptures that were carved into a riverbed over a thousand years ago, sample plenty of spicy Khmer dishes and meet locals who reside in stilted villages atop Tonle Sap. This is the perfect addition to any holiday in Cambodia.
What's included in this trip
Secrets of Angkor SummaryAdd to Shortlist
A vibrant nightlife, mouth-watering food, a time-worn French feel and certain famous temples on its doorstep - Siem Reap is a little town with a big, pulsating heart. Immense, awe-inspiring, extraordinary - the Angkor Wat temples are all this and much more. Built in the 12th century, this former Khmer city is nothing short of spectacular.
Much more than the gateway to the Angkor temples, Siem Reap has a rich cultural heritage spanning many centuries and a charming, laidback atmosphere. Banteay Srei is a temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Built in the 10th century, it consists of three rectangular enclosures and is incredibly ornate.
Siem Reap, once a collection of small villages, is now a vibrant town full of great food, relaxed bars, beautiful countryside and cultural gems. Tonle Sap is a significant lake and river system that feeds into the Mekong in Cambodia's dry season and forms a large lake during its wet.
