Itinerary

Hotel
Raffles Hotel Le Royal (State Room)

Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s bustling capital!

Sitting at the junction of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap River, Phnom Penh was once the hub for both the Khmer Empire and French colonialists. After check in, the rest of the day can be spent as you wish. 

The hotel is located in a beautiful tree-lined street in central Phnom Penh—feel free to explore or get some rest before sightseeing tomorrow. It’s a short walk to Wat Phnom and the river, and the National Museum and Royal Palace are a short tuk-tuk ride away.

Airport transfers are not included. Our transfer portal offers the option to book your airport transfers for an easier arrival experience (additional charges apply). Access to this portal will be available through your Traveller Hub once your booking is confirmed.

Meals
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a leisurely breakfast, you will be picked up at the hotel at 8am. 

Today we will be exploring the rich heritage of Phnom Penh, considered the Pearl of Asia. Situated on the banks of the Ton Le Sap and Mekong rivers, Phnom Penh was largely constructed in the 1920s and boasts some of Asia’s best-preserved Art Deco architecture.  

Sitting back in the three-wheeled City Cyclo is an adventure in itself—you will be transported to the majestic Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda complex. Here, admire the elaborately constructed palace buildings, some of the 5,000 silver floor tiles that give the Silver Pagoda its name, as well as spectacular gold and jewelled Buddha statues that are considered national treasures. We will continue onto the National Museum, just a short walk away. This beautiful sandstone building showcases the world’s largest collection of Khmer art.

After the museum visit, we’ll stop for a break and some lunch at a local restaurant.

We’ll then continue to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum*, a former secondary school which was converted by the Khmer Rouge into one of the regime’s largest detention and torture centres, Security Prison 21. An important educational site, the museum chronicles the Cambodian genocide and documents the atrocities that occurred within its walls.  

Afterwards, we’ll return to the hotel for an afternoon at leisure. Relax by the pool, enjoy the spa, or continue to explore the city as you wish. 

This evening, rejoin the rest of the group at the hotel’s Elephant Bar for happy hour, including signature cocktails and canapés.

After winding down, we’ll head to dinner at Malis Restaurant, a 15 minute drive away. Overlooking the Siem Reap River, the restaurant is set in a lush garden and is known for serving ‘Living Cambodian Cuisine’.

NOTES

Though an important part in the history of Cambodia, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum displays images that are graphic and can be unsettling. Please inform your leader if you do not wish to visit the museum.

Meals
Breakfast, Dinner

After breakfast and check out, you will be transferred to Phnom Penh International Airport for our onward flight to Siem Reap. Upon arrival, your guide and driver will transfer you to your hotel.

After making your own arrangements for lunch, we’ll meet again at approximately 3pm and depart for Channy Chhoeun’s Gallery. 

Start the trip by hopping-on a tuk-tuk to Wat Atvea, a village south of Siem Reap. Here, we’ll be welcomed into the home studio and gallery of renowned contemporary artist, Channy Chhoeun. Channy was born in 1988 in Battambang and in 1998, his family relocated to the jungle approximately 100 km from Battambang as part of a government scheme. As a young boy, Channy discovered his love and talent for art by sketching with sticks and soil. When his father heard about an art school that provided free education, he enrolled Channy. Passionate about birds and their relationship with humans and the environment, Channy is keen to paint and share about the dangers that befall wildlife in our modern world. This is reflected in much of his work. While we’re here, enjoy some snacks and tea as you tour the art studio and hear Channy’s story first-hand.

After the visit, we will head to the Embassy Restaurant for a welcome dinner. Embassy is an institute in Siem Reap, and is fine dining at its best. The menu features Khmer cuisine with a twist from Kimsan Pol who oversees every aspect of the menu. Expect a meal to remember! 

NOTES
You are offered a standard laundry service (not express) one time at your hotel in Siem Reap, including 2 shirts or T-shirts, 2 trousers or shorts, 2 pairs of socks and 2 pairs of underwear.

Meals
Breakfast, Lunch

This morning after breakfast we’ll be picked up at 8am and head to our first stop, Tonle Om Gate, or Angkor Thom’s southern gate. Here, statues of the gods of good and evil line the entrance and it is one of the five ancient gates, dating back to the 12th century. The southern gate also features the best-restored causeway. 

The next stop is Bayon, a richly decorated temple. Its most distinctive feature is the hundreds of smiling faces that grace the towers. Impressive bas-reliefs tell stories of daily life and of the great battles that were fought between the Khmers and ancient Thais.

We’ll then take a short drive to Ta Prohm, one of Cambodia’s most beloved temples. Unusually, Ta Prohm is in much the same condition as it was found. The combination of large trees growing out of the ruins and the surrounding jungle give the temple a truly magical feel.

Returning to Siem Reap for lunch at Chanrey Tree Restaurant and to escape the sun. We’ll spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the magnificent Angkor Wat, the world’s largest religious monument and best-preserved temple in the complex. This visually spectacular three-tiered pyramid has become a symbol of Cambodia, and even appears on the national flag. 

We’ll end the day with a relaxing sunset cruise along the moat of Angkor Thom. We’ll glide along in the gondola with sparkling wine and canapés, enjoying the view of the majestic temples of Angkor as the sun sets on this magical day.

After, we’ll return to the hotel where dinner and the rest of the day can be spent as you wish.

Today we’ll get a glimpse of local life as we embark on a journey to Kok Sangke Community. We’ll interact with locals, learn about their daily lives, and gain a deeper understanding of their traditions and livelihoods.

We’ll start with a visit to the Bamboo Sticky Rice Family. We’ll learn about the traditional process of making this delicious local delicacy. Continuing the exploration, we’ll meet a Blacksmith family where we’ll gain insights into the ancient art of blacksmithing and witness skilled craftsmen at work, shaping metal into intricate objects.

We’ll pause for lunch, which is a leisurely walk to the community lunch venue where we’ll enjoy a delicious meal prepared by the locals. Savour the flavours of the region while sipping on fresh coconut water.

Next, we’ll depart for a pagoda, a place of spiritual significance. Upon arrival, we’ll be greeted by the enchanting Chai Yam Music Band who will enchant with their welcome ceremony. Here, you will receive a special blessing from a monk, a meaningful and introspective experience that brings a sense of tranquillity and spiritual connection.

After, we will head to the Kampong Khleang Village to embark on a memorable boat trip, navigating the scenic waterways and observing the unique stilted houses that define this traditional fishing village.

After the boat trip, we will return to your hotel where there’ll be time to relax or stroll into town to do some last-day shopping in Siem Reap. 

This evening is one to remember! We’ll enjoy our farewell dinner as a group at our hotel, including access to the hotel's Temple Garden. Accompanied by a Khmer cultural show, dinner is a choice between a 6-course Khmer set dinner or BBQ buffet—this evening is the perfect end to your Cambodian travels.

Raffles Le Royal became the tallest and largest building at the time, and a place of unprecedented elegance. The hotel is a blend of French Colonial style with traditional Khmer architecture.
