2 Days / 1 Night - Tour
Phnom Penh to Siem Reap via Kompong Thom
Kingdom of Cambodia

Day 1 Phnom Penh - Kompong Cham - Kompong Thom
This morning we depart Phnom Penh and drive northwest to Kompong Cham. The area was famous in French times for its many rubber plantations. First, visit Wat Nokor, located 2 km outside town - the temple dates from the 10th Century and has beautiful old carvings and bas-reliefs. Brightly coloured new Buddhist temples - a strange mixture, surround the old sanctuary, with statues of the Hindu god Shiva! Drive into Kompong Cham and walk around the town and see some of the old colonial architecture. Lunch at local restaurant.

In the afternoon we will continue our journey to Kompong Thom. On the way we will visit Wat Kohear Nokor, dating from the 11th century. The temple and adjacent pagoda are interesting and it's a pleasant place to see something of Khmer village life. Continue north to Phum Prasat, with its single ancient temple. Arrive in Kompong Thom and check into your hotel. Enjoy an early evening walk through town, along the banks of the Sen River. Dinner at local restaurant or hotel. Accommodation at Stung Sen Hotel, Kompong Thom.
Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 Kompong Thom - Sambor Prey Kuk - Siem Reap
Breakfast. This morning we will visit Sambor Prey Kuk. These pre-Angkor ruins date from the 6th century and were the centre of the ancient Kingdom of Chenla. Sambor Prey Kuk is said to be the first temple site in South East Asia built according to Indian cosmology. The historical site includes more than 100 temples - many temples have been overgrown by the surrounding lush forest. However, we can still see crumbling temples built of brick, sandstone and laterite, and interesting sculptures remain. It is a privilege to see some of these most ancient surviving examples of Khmer architecture. On the way back visit Wat Entry Somvrak. This pagoda has been built around 1940 and the main attractions are very nice and colourful wall paintings inside the temple. Late morning we will return to Kompong Thom. Lunch at local restaurant.

This afternoon we will drive north to Siem Reap. The rather bumpy drive takes about 3-4 hours (depending on the road condition). Late afternoon arrival in Siem Reap. Transfer to your hotel.
