What you will see and experience:

Apart from the crowning glory that Angkor Wat is, Cambodia is also home to many other temples of architectural marvel, some of them still intact and some still glorious even as ruins. See the rich culture and heritage of the people of this ancient land, their floating houses and simply the way they live – the diversity of it all.

At Banteay Srey and Kampong Kleang, take in all the sounds and colours and smells to the point of intoxication. Dedicated to Shiva, the pink limestone walls containing the best bas reliefs of any temple at Angkor, Banteay Srey will charm you. The wooden houses on tall stilts in Kampong Kleang are a delight to watch. At the Tonlé Sap Lake, floating houses and people’s way of living are some amazing details you would want to see.

The magnificent remains of the Khmer Empire, the Angkor Archaeological Park will be a breathtaking encounter visually, architecturally and artistically. Explore the hidden temples, temples of Bayon, Baphoun and Terrace of Elephants and The Leper King. Visit the main temple, Angkor Wat, which is arguably the main reason many visit Cambodia.

In the remains of Roluos Group of Temples, the first major capital of the Angkorian-era Empire, visit the Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong temples. In Bakong temple area, the largest and the most interesting of the Roluos Group of Temples, there is still an active Buddhist monastery.

Explore the jungle-clad temple Ta Prohm, where overgrown trees whose roots push stubbornly between the huge stone blocks of the temple and still hold them from falling apart. Watch yet another exquisite sunset at Pre Rup or Srah Sarong.

Now now, what fun if you didn’t wander off into some offbeat places in a foreign country! These are the ruins that aren’t frequented often — Koh Ker (a beautiful jungle temple) and Beng Mealea (meaning ‘lotus pond’ in Khmer). Depictions of scenes from the Hindu mythology are carved in these temples and make for some long-lasting memories.
