Cambodia With Angkor Wat in 7-10 Days
With two weeks in Cambodia, you can take the time to explore farther afield than the major cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Enjoy everything from beach days to bike days, temple explorations to delicious food markets.
Day 1-2, Phnom Penh: Phnom Penh is where many tours in Cambodia begin. This city is a vibrant combination of ancient and modern, history and nightlife. You’ll visit The National Museum, observe the photogenic French influenced architecture, and enjoy delicious fusion cuisine, as well as spectacularly classic street food.
Also in Phnom Penh, you’ll take a tour of the infamous Killing Fields. This excursion can be hard, as it exposes a particularly ugly period in Cambodian, and in fact human history. During the time of the Khmer Rouge regime, more than a million people were killed, and this mass grave marks the horrific events.
Day 3-4, Khmer homestay: Experience local life in a traditional Cambodian household. You’ll learn about the everyday tasks of rural province living, get to participate in each part of the day, learn to cook meals, and meet friendly families of all ages. You may also get to see and learn traditional dances and customs.
Day 5-6, Floating Village of Kompong Luong: This floating village is quintessential Cambodia, providing a glimpse into a unique community. The residents here live entirely in “floating houses”, raised on stilts, rising out of the Tonle Sap waters. Take a boat trips through this fascinating microcosm of daily life, and be sure to have your camera ready for some beautifully poignant shots.
Day 7-8, Battambang: Unique stone statues of animals and deities line the streets in this quaint colonial town, with perfectly preserved architecture and distinct French influence. A lovely riverfront, calm town, Battambang is a great place to rent bikes and experience a slower paced Cambodia than is found in Phnom Penh or Siem Reap.
Day 9-10, Siem Reap: In Siem Reap, you’ll enjoy time outdoors, exploring colorful markets and meeting locals. Enjoy classic Cambodian cuisine, from street stalls as well as many restaurants and markets.
Angkor Wat - Siem Reap is of course the jumping off place for tours to Angkor Wat. Generally one day is not nearly enough time to get a full appreciation of the breadth and depth there is to see and do among the many temples of Angkor. Try to spend at least two days to explore this ancient, beautiful ruin city.
