Your tour begins with a visit to Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields – solemn reminders of the Khmer Rouge regime, and sites integral to understanding the Cambodia of today. You'll also see the ancient capital of Phnom Udong, with its impressive chedis and temples still intact. To close the day, take a relaxing stroll along the Tonle Sap River before retiring to your luxury hotel. The charming and historic Raffles Hotel de Royal is a great option.

The seaside city of Kep is your next destination. This area is famous for its crab and locally-grown kampot pepper, and you'll enjoy some of the best seafood dishes in Asia here. King Sihanouk's abandoned palace is in the nearby hills – a worthwhile diversion – or you can take a day trip out to the charming Rabbit Island – Koh Tonsay – and enjoy a swim in the Gulf of Thailand's warm tropical waters. Tonight, you'll check into the  Knai Bang Chatt or Veranda Natural Resort.

Day 6

Amansara Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The Angkor temple complex dates from the late 12th century and is a truly fascinating remnant of Khmer history. Today you get to explore Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm with an archaeologist as your own private guide.

Today you'll travel to the 10th century Banteay Srei temple, a fascinating red sandstone tribute to the Hindu god Shiva. After that, learn about the plight of local NGOs with an orphanage visit, before checking out Khmer arts and crafts in a bespoke shopping experience. In the evening, return to your hotel for dinner, or explore the restaurants and street stalls of Siem Reap.

Day 8
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Amansara Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A trip to Siem Reap is not complete without seeing the sunrise at Angkor Wat. For your final day, you'll get to experience this beautiful sight before visiting the Siem Reap School of Arts, where young students learn traditional Khmer apsara dancing. Next, get a feel for the city from a different angle with a helicopter tour, and cap off your trip with a romantic private dinner at Wat Athvea.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.
