Siem Reap Angkor Wat Tour Plan

  • By on February 15, 2009 | 9 Comments

    Lately I was too busy in my new job, just have time today to sketch out some Angkor Wat tour plan.

    Special thanks to Giraffe from the  Tour Escape Research Department, she collect lots of information on Siem Reap including foods and places to visit for me to draft this travel plan monkey-relax

    Haan recommend me to go Khmer Kitchen, Siem Reap for some food hunting delicacies. Check out her blog post here

    I will check it out ya, Haan…monkey-wassup

    For those who have been to Siem Reap, I would welcome on suggestion and feedback on any special interesting place to visit 😉

    Look at my tour plan for 5 days 4 night at below, hopefully I didn’t miss out any good place monkey-thanks


    1st Day:
    – Depart from LCCT to Siem Reap airport
    – Reached Siam Reap. Check in to the Bousavy guest house.
    – Lunch
    – Tonle Sap – Floating Village
    – Old Market/ Central Market (souvenir is cheaper at Central Market compare to Old Market)

    2nd Day:
    – Angkor Wat (to catch the sunrise)
    – Angkor Thom – Bayon – Elephant Terrace – Baphuon – Phimeanakas – Terrace of lepper king – Prasats Sour Prat(west gate)
    – Phnom Bakheng Hill (to catch the sunset)
    – Angkor Wat (to catch the sunset)

    3rd Day:
    – Roluos Group: Preah Ko, Lo Lei and Ba Kong temples
    – Prasat Kravan – a unique temple consists of bas-reliefs of Vishnu and Lakshimi rendered in brick. The sculpture is nice.
    – Kbal Spean(River thousand Linga) – rocky and steep path, wear sports shoes, bring water and more than half an hour mountain hiking
    – Pre Rup – It’s a temple built with bricks instead of sandstones.
    – Banteay Prei, Banteay kdey, Thommanon, Preah Pallilay, Srah Srang (Srah Seang)

    4th Day:
    – Banteay Srey (Bantery Srey) – small hindu temple (finest carving)
    – Banteay Sam Re (Bantery Samre)
    – Taprom (Ta Prohm) – Tom Raider Place
    – Takeo – a temple mountain dedicated to Shiva (stairs are steep)
    – Preah Khann (Preah Khan) – Temple of the Scared Sword
    – Preah Neak Pan (Neak Pean)
    – Prasat Ta som (Prasat Ta Som located in the east of Nean Pean)
    – Chau Say Tevoda
    – Thommonoun (near by to Chau Say Tevoda)
    – Takoa/ Takeo (sunset on the hill)

    5th Day:
    – Central Market
    – Check out from the Bousavy guest house.
    – Depart from Siem Reap to LCCT airport

    Check check check: –
    – Please bring umbrella and sun block. It’s very the hot now till burn…
    – The people there love USD, so exchange enough of USD currency before we fly. I recommend you to bring USD200-250 for the 5 day 4 night trip.
    – Passport, no need to say on this…make sure you passport not yet expired
    – Bring some “Poh Zai” pill, just in case your stomach not feeling good.
    – Bring mineral water, if not we have to buy from the airport or guesthouse using USD
    – Bring some small size but heavy snack like Snickers, Cadbury and those snack that you love (just in case you not adapt to the food over there)

    “souvenir is cheaper at Central Market compare to Old Market”

    actually if u buy from the kids pestering around, the price could be cheaper, coz in their mind, they want to sell the items out only. if u say no, they will keep reducing the price 🙂

    2nd day.. u put sunrise and sunset altogether, not sure will be too tiring or not… i could not make it.. on the day watching sunset (at Takeo), 3-4pm i already tak boleh!!

    mineral water, no need to bring la… just buy there in cambodia, 1000 riel can get one big size bottle.

    anyway, do not under-estimate the size of the places u visit. if u r keen on photography like me, i think that consumes u a lot of energy 🙂 (or maybe is me not strong enough, hehe).

    on 1st day, if u do not visit the water village, u can go buy ticket in the afternoon (around 4pm), then u can start ur angkor wat visits already. then in total u got 3.5 days!! good value for the money 🙂

    day 4, sounds like a little pack.. make sure all the places are really nearby, then that’s fine, but it may get a little tiring and boring on a whole just-wat day. There’s just so much we can take in.. I sort of forgotten the uniqueness of each one, when each have the history of their own..

    Yea, mineral water can buy from there.. it’s pretty safe and clean
    I love the food they serve, except one. It was by the roadside, along the pub street. The taste was really too original I guess, that I can’t take it.. Some sort of acquired smell and taste.. Hehe.. must try ikan amok and beef loklak also.. it’s nice..

    oh ya, the last time, I’ve brought lots sweets. When the kids came over, i didn’t buy their stuff, but I gave them sweets.. They seem happy enough though..

    Oh ya, wear a good pair of walking sandal/sport shoes..

    Kyo, I will be going on this March.

    Haan, thanks ya…I will keep say NO as my negotiation skill :p. I haven’t bought any DSLR yet, hehe. Yeah, I was worry whether the rest of my friend have issue going to Angkor Wat twice a day. But I am ready to get dirty and tired liao…kaka. How much is the ticket u bought for 3.5 days? Because 3 days is for USD40 right?

    Meg Meg, you are right…maybe we will feel the structure of the ancient almost the same unless we are archeologist…haha. Ikan amok is ikan “mengamuk” ah? Haha, I will hunt for lots of food…

    Ok, so no worry on the mineral water supply over there after hearing advice from both of you 🙂 and sweets for the kids.

    yeah, on the itinerary, we will use it as a guideline and might get some advice from the driver whether will it be too packed or not.

    Anyway, it’s flexible for us. When it’s too tired, we will always adjust the itinerary…
