Daily Itinerary

Day 1: Ha Noi (or HCMC) to Siem Reap, Cambodia

This morning you are picked up at the hotel, by car and tour guide for your transfer to airport for flight to Siem Reap, Cambodia.  You will be warmly welcomed at Siem Reap International airport as you are met and transferred directly to your hotel for check in.  After lunch at a local restaurant, you will visit to Ta Prohm, one of the area's most beautiful temples.  Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery.  Banteay Kdei (surrounded by 4 concentric walls), Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool (representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake), Ta Som, built in late 12th century C.E. the most distant temple on the grand circuit, small but classic.  Preah Khan temple, Built by the King Jayavarman VII.  Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder hugging corridors.  Unlike Ta Prohm, however, the temple of Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation.
