Day 2 Bangkok/Siem Reap
Cross the border from Thailand into Cambodia, your home base for exploring Siem Reap and the incredible Angkor Wat.

Day 3 Siem Reap
Watch the sun rise over the majestic and mystifying ruins of Angkor Wat before spending the rest of the day discovering this ancient city your way. Opt to end your day with a Sunset Quad Bike ride through the outskirts of Siem Reap. Later, head to the infamous Pub Street, where the party goes round the clock. Grab a bite to eat (deep-fried tarantula, anyone?) and let the beats move you through market stalls and bars as you wait for tomorrow’s sunrise.
Prefer to plan ahead? Pre-book the "Siem Reap Quad Biking" or "Phare Circus" activities when booking your tour to include one of these exciting activities in your itinerary. (B)

Day 7 Koh Rong
