Full-day visit of the Angkor temples - the largest archaeological area in the world, where archeologists classified 276 monuments of great importance. The undisputed masterpiece of Khmer art and architecture is Angkor Wat, with twelve hundred square meters of exquisite bas reliefs that offer a spectacular testimony of an art of exquisite refinement. It is considered one of the most beautiful monuments in the whole world. It was dedicated to Vishnu and is the only temple in Angkor facing west.
Lunch in a typical Cambodian restaurant.
Images that have created the “myth” of Angkor Wat are discovered in Ta Prohm, where giant trees are among the tangle of towering shrines, huge roots are wrapped around the galleries and shrubs sprout from the roofs of each building till visitors can no longer distinguish the work of man apart from the creations of nature.

Visit the village of fishermen. Along the road that leads to the shores of Phnom Krom are lots and lots of boats which are actually floating houses that belong to the famous floating village: a community of "nomads of the lake" who navigate on the Tonle Sap in order to follow the fishing season. These boats are their houses, schools, churches, shops, public offices, fish farms and are all built on barges and floating platforms that rise and lower following the rhythm of the flooding of the lake. It was the ancestral tradition of the river population in Indochina.
Lunch in a typical Cambodian restaurant.
