    Siem Reap arrival. Driver from the airport to your hotel. Free at your leisure.

Siem Reap is a pleasant, sleepy backwater serving as a gateway to the ancient capital of Angkor. It is difficult to believe that at its peak in the 12th century, this was one of the most advanced civilizations in the world and home to more than 1 million inhabitants.

Upon arrival at Siem Reap airport, you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel for check in.

    Witness amazing views of Angkor Ruin, jungle and rice paddies of Siem Reap by a tethered helium balloon flight. Explore the World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat & nearby ancient temples

After breakfast at around 08:00a.m, you will depart on a tethered helium 15 minute balloon flight that will lead you 200 meters up for an amazing aerial view of Angkor Wat and other ruins amongst the surrounding jungle and rice paddies glimmering down below.

Drive to visit the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat- one of the world’s most impressive ruins. The temple still owns fine Apsara carvings in Angkorian era art. Visit the picturesque Ta Prohm that had nearly disappeared into the jungle and remains overgrown, an oddly haunting and exotic scene. The magnificent roots of a tree, pushing between the huge stone blocks of the temple in a sort of embrace, evoke feelings that you may remember forever.

After lunch (at your own account), drive back to hotel for relaxing.

Afternoon around 3pm, explore the mysterious Royal city Angkor Thom City &Bayon. Its 54-tower temple is an awesome sight. At first glance it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are engulfed by the silent, heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes, staring out from a primitive and remote time. Further, visit to the surroundings of the complex including the Baphoun, Elephant Terraces, Lepper King Terrace and Royal Place area.

Dinner at your own account. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Enjoy helium balloon flight over Angkor Complex

Taking a helium balloon flight over Siem Reap is not a new activity but always an attractive experience you should not miss when visiting this heritage land. About 800 meters west from the Angkor Wat Complex, a bright yellow balloon tethered to the ground by a mechanical cable will take you up to the sky to 120 meters high with 20 visitors. You will have 10 - 15 minutes to contemplate the magnificent beauty of the ancient complex Angkor Wat from the bird's-eye view. On a clear day, you will be also able to see Siem Reap surrounding countryside with rice fields, villages, jungle, and hidden temple ruins. It isn’t a long tour but still enough to take in the picturesque scenery and get some stunning pictures of the famous Angkor Wat. Let’s experience a sunrise or sunset flight to bring home fascinating memories that last a lifetime.

Situated in the outskirts of town, the bamboo train, also called norry or nori, is basically a bamboo platform placed on wheels and powered by a small engine running on the rail line. The bamboo train rides only several kilometers through rice fields, stretches of bush, and simple bridges with quite fast speed that gives you a feeling of adventure. The whole trip might take around an hour, consisting of a stop at the end of the line where you see some local shop from food, drinks, and souvenirs, explore the surrounding before hopping on the train and move back to the station.
