(10 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Phnom Penh, Song Saa Island, Siem Reap (Angkor)
This leisurely tour journeys through Cambodia and is ideal for honeymooners or for travelers seeking a comprehensive tour of the country.
Begin in Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh. Stay at the legendary Raffles Hotel Le Royal, a local landmark since 1927, and enjoy comprehensive private touring with a private guide and driver. Visit the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, and see incredible sights such as a Baccarat crystal Buddha and another made of gold and diamonds. At the National Museum, view the world’s premier collection of ancient Khmer sculpture and artifacts. Explore Phnom Penh’s markets, and perhaps shop for silver or silk and cotton textiles. If desired, learn about Cambodia’s more recent history during a visit to the Killing Fields and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. There will also be time to relax at vibrant cafes and perhaps stop for a drink at the Foreign Correspondents Club, a Phnom Penh institution.
Next, transfer to Cambodia’s unspoiled coast and Song Saa, a private island resort in the beautiful Koh Rong archipelago near Sihanoukville. Stay at a luxury resort in a villa perched above the warm blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. During leisure time, relax on the beach, go bird watching, enjoy yoga, walk through an island rainforest, or enjoy a picnic on a nearby island. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange activities such as snorkeling excursions with a marine biologist, kayaking in mangroves, village visits, conservation activities, and advance spa appointments.
Continue to Siem Reap to explore incredible Angkor, the ruins of the ancient Khmer empire. Accommodation is at the exclusive Amansara Resort. With your private guide, tour the most interesting parts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, including Angkor Wat, an enormous temple city built as a model of the Hindu universe in stone; Angkor Thom, an ancient capital filled with iconic sites such as the Bayon, Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King; Ta Prohm, a temple being devoured by the jungle; and serene Preah Khan, a former monastery and school. Also visit Banteay Srei, a petite temple with elaborate carvings in pink sandstone, and other lesser-known temples.
One day, participate in a private Khmer cooking class, or opt to visit more remote temples. Also enjoy an excursion to Tonle Sap, Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake and an ecological wonder. Enjoy a boat cruise among the lake’s floating villages, markets and gardens. Also cruise through the flooded forest to learn about the Tonle Sap ecosystem and spot birds and other wildlife.
If desired, enjoy special activities customized to your interests, such as riding bikes to temples and local villages, visiting children's centers, touring local villages, photography excursions, visiting traditional Cambodian art centers, specialized shopping, private yoga, a helicopter ride to remote jungle temples, or attending traditional Khmer dance performances.
