Return for your free time and overnight at the Hotel (Phnom Penh) 

Today transfer by car from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (without guide). Along the way you will have the opportunity to stop on the road to take photographs and observe the daily life of Cambodians as you pass through interesting provincial towns, between villages and enchanting landscapes. This is not a highway and it will often slow down to allow cows and buffaloes to roam the streets, to pass horse-drawn carriages and children going to school on foot. We could choose to stop at Skoun, also known as "Spider Vile" because of the local delicacy: the fried insects! Will you try one? Departure for the Tonle Sap, along the eastern side of the lake. Arrival in Kampong Phluk, the "flooded forest" accessible by boat only during high water. Nearby is a fishing village,

Overnight at the Hotel (Siem Reap) 

We will head towards the rural countryside to the small but beautiful temple of Banteay Srei, mostly built of pink sandstone, a harder rock that survives better than the rigors of time. We will also visit the Landmine Museum of Mr. Akira. Stop in a local village to visit the families that produce palm sugar.
Don't miss the Banteay Samre: its pink sandstone walls are decorated with carvings and bas-reliefs among the most interesting of Angkor. We will continue towards the famous Ta Prohm, abandoned to nature, remembering that as empires rise and fall, the unrestrained power of nature proceeds, unaware of the dramas of human history. In the afternoon we will return to the main Angkor Park and go to Tasom. The day will end with the sunset over the rice fields of the royal Pre Rup, a classic view of the Cambodian countryside.

Overnight at the Hotel (Siem Reap) 

After breakfast we will start the visit of Angkor Thom, starting from the South Gate and the Bayon Temple, famous throughout the world for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avalokitesvara. We will also visit the Baphuon temple, a pyramidal representation of the mythical Mount Meru, and the Phimeanakas temple, a huge complex that was used by the king in the past. We will continue with the Elephant Terrace and, hidden in the forest, Ta Prohm, famous for the movie "Tomb Raider". The tour continues to the Mother of all temples, the Angkor Wat, which is believed to be the largest religious building in the world. This temple is the perfect fusion of symbolism and symmetry and a source of pride and strength for all Khmer. Towards evening we recommend enjoying a dinner with Apsara show.
