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 South East Asia.

Why you'll love this trip
  • As one of the world’s greatest religious and archaeological sites, Angkor Wat deserves and demands special attention – this short break focuses on the temple complex in detail.
  • From the man-made to the natural side of Cambodia, encounter the wildlife of the country at the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity, an Intrepid Foundation supported project that helps animals saved from trafficking.
  • Explore the lands surrounding Angkor Wat, and gain insight into the Cambodian way of life.
  • Discover a way of life dictated by the rhythm of water in the fascinating floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is offered in Original and Comfort styles – please inform your booking agent of which style you'd prefer.
  • Please note that your local guide and group members can change each day.
  • Evenings are free for your own explorations on this trip. Other travellers may be staying at different hotels for the night so you will only meet up with them on the included activities during the day.
  • We use a variety of hotels in Siem Reap, depending on availability. These hotels will be confirmed to you at your time of booking.
  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments and you will visit many temples on this trip, which requires a level of modesty. Be sure to bring clothes that cover the arms and pants or skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

Our trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia was outstanding in every way and absolutely worth the price. Our guide, Dee, however was the highlight—truly exceptional—not just a guide but a cultural ambassador and a friend we just hadn’t met yet.

A very informative, effortless way to see the temples at Angkor Wat as well as some other interesting things around Siem Reap. We especially enjoyed the temples still semi-consumed by the jungle and also the boat trip on the last morning. We got way more out of seeing the temples with a guide to explain everything as there are no signboards. Our guide Sokham was so friendly and knowledgeable. Also the included lunches were the best food we had in Cambodia by far! We enjoyed this short trip very much.

Our Intrepid travel guide made our trip to Angkor Wat truly come alive. Her grandparents lived across the street! Her stories of the temple’s history will live with us always.

The tour of Angor Wat was the best part of my recent South East Asian holiday. I found I really gained in depth knowledge about Cambodia’s history and culture. I was very impressed with our local guide Toneth who allowed my daughter and I to really experience the archeological, environmental and historical wonders of Angkor. We also got to visit local markets, villages and food producers.
