Day 1: Sihanouk Ville – Phnom Penh – Siem Reap
Early morning at Sihanouk port, our tour guide and driver are ready to pick you up for transfer to Phnom Penh. It will take you over 3hours to get the city. On the way you will have chance to see our local life and the landscape.
On arrival, we will have a quick view of the city with:
The Royal Palace, it is now home to the royal family and therefore very close to the public. At the northern area of the palace grounds is Silver Pagoda, the most sacred temple in the country. Continue to National Museum, which is dedicated exclusively to Khmer art and sculpture. The majority of the exhibits are from the Angkor period from 9th to 15th century, but some date from as early as the 4th century. Lunch at local restaurant.
Afternoon, visit The Tuol Sleng Prison Museum and the notorious ‘Killing Fields’ of Choeung Ek are not to be missed. A visit to these sights provides a deep insight into the painful bloody rule of the Khmer Rouge.
Later afternoon, we transfer to international airport for flight Siem Reap.
On arrival, get a pick up to hotel and relaxing.
Accommodation: Hotel in Siem Reap
Day 2: Angkor tour
Early morning, we enjoy the Tuk Tuk to the jungle-covered temple of Ta Phrom and come back to hotel for breakfast at 07:30 and one hour later we drive beyond the main Angkor complex to visit the biggest religious temple in the world - the magnificent Angkor Wat. Built by Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat is considered a masterpiece of Khmer architecture.
Then we move to Angkor Thom City by Victoria Gate. For the enigmatic faces of Bayon temple to the intricate bas reliefs of the Terrace of the Elephants, Angkor Thom is filled with fabulous monuments.
Lunch will be provided in the house of villager. After lunch we drive to Banteay Srei, it is also one of the most beautiful. Built in 967 AD by Jayavarman V's guru, it showcases the most exquisite, deep and complex carvings in all Khmer architecture and Preah Khan meaning “Holy Sword” is one of the largest temple compounds in Angkor and is defended by four concentric walls.
Back to Siem Reap for flight to Saigon.
On arrival, get a pick up and transfer to hotel.

Day 3: Saigon city tour
In the morning, our tour guide & driver will meet you at 8.00 at your hotel, and then we visit:
• The Reunification Palace: This is one of the most important buildings in the city. Here on April 30, 1975, what the Vietnamese refer to as the “American War” officially ended when tank number 843 of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time, the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam.
• War Remnants Museum: Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the “Requiem” exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The exhibit includes the last shots these photographers had taken before their deaths. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons captured from the American military machine.
• Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40m towers, topped with iron spires dominate the city's skyline. The Old Post Office is another example of French colonial architecture and is also the country's largest post office.
In the afternoon, we continue to visit:
• Giac Lam Pagoda: This is Ho Chi Minh City's oldest pagoda, dating back to 1744 and one of the finest in Vietnam. Inside, 98 pillars and 113 statues and myriad mini - Buddhas vie for your attention. Don't miss the amazing Tree of Wandering Souls where people pray for their sick relatives by writing the names of their loved ones on slips of paper and then attaching them to the tree.
Then we will directly transfer to Phu My seaport to meet up your cruise.
