In the afternoon, we’ll stop at a local village where palm sugar is produced and visit one of the most complete complexes at Angkor, Banteay Samre. The next day, we’ll head to the ancient capital of Angkor Thom and the Bayon temple, with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara. You’ll also explore Angkor Wat, a masterpiece of art and architecture, before a dinner and dance show at a local restaurant. On the last day, we’ll visit a floating village and ride a traditional wooden boat on the Tonle Sap Lake. We’ll also see some of the traditional handmade products and shops in the area.
