Upon arriving at Siem Reap Airport, be welcomed by a local English-speaking guide and transfer to the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort for check-in.
Enjoy some time relaxing at the hotel or explore the town of Siem Reap to get a feel for the Cambodian way of life.
In the afternoon, depart on a sightseeing tour of the famous Angkor Wat by car. Angkor Wat was built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century and it was modeled after the temple mountain symbolising Mount Meru, the mythical mountain of gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II fought during his reign. It is also decorated with over 2,000 dancing figures, animals and devatas (deity).
Construction is thought to have taken around thirty years; today, the Angkor Wat is part of Cambodia’s national flag as it represents the soul of the Khmer people.
An authentic Khmer welcome dinner will be served at Chanrey Tree.
