Day 1: Siem Reap Arrival (D)

You will be warmly welcome and greeted by our tour guide and transfer to hotel. After check in, you will be taken by Tuk Tuk, a small open-sided taxi common in Cambodia. The pre-orientation of Siem Reap will be conducted at Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chom, where is the holy place for worship at every religious day that Cambodian consider as important part of their life and continue to Wat Bo, a large, highly respected pagoda, founded in the 18th Century.

Like the Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh, the vihear of Wat Bo contains unique wall paintings of the Reamker that are said to be late 19th Century. Look for the daily-life market scenes such as an opium smoking Chinese merchant, the colonial era French officer at the market and the French soldiers attending a traditional dance performance.

Here you will have a blessing ceremony by Buddhist monks for happiness, prosperity and safety for your journey. Tonight we enjoy buffet dinner with Apsara dance performance at local restaurant.
