Day2-):  Banteay Srei & Hidden temple gems
In the morning you will discover some greater temple sites. Travel across ancient reservoir (long since devoid of water), through pretty villages and rice paddies to Banteay Srei [AD967], some 37km from Siam reap. This beautiful pink sandstone temple is well - known for its intricate carvings, of which hardly any space is left untouched, and its perfect state of preservation.  After drive on explore to the Kbal Spean, properly "Steung Kbal Spean", is a tributary of the Siem Reap River (Steung Siem Reap), and the site is about 47kkm from Siem Reap, a little over an hour by car. Kbal Spean highlights include the scenic waterfalls and pools, where it is possible to bathe, but the river is famous for its riverbed carvings of Hindu mythology, and particularly its many lingas, giving it the name Sahasralinga, or River of a Thousand Lingas. Kbal Spean is best seen during and just after the wet season, when water flows over the lingas and other river carvings.

PM: Grand Circuit Tour
Visit the temple of Banteay Samre, built in a similar style to Angkor Wat. Take a walk along the old causeway and be welcomed by the stone lions and Naga balustrades, as the temple looms above and Pre Rup temple.

Day 3- ): Remote temples
After breakfast, Venture away from Siem Reap to Koh Ker, with its striking similarity to the Mayan temples of Central America and jungle-clad Beng Mealea.
Koh Ker is one of the more remote, seldom visited temple complexes in the area, over 100km northern of Angkor built between 928 and 944 under King Jayavarman IV, and his son, Harshavarman II. This complex has many unique temples, although dominated by Prasat Thom.

Other unique temples include Prasat Krahom (Red Temple), Prasat Leng, one of the largest Shiva linga in Cambodia, and Prasat Pram crowned with trees.

PM: Beng Mealea temple
Explore jungle-clad Beng Mealea temple. In a much collapsed state it retains a very atmospheric feel. Venture into darkened doorways, follow the wooden walkways or scramble over tumbled stones.
                               After your Angkor tour, you will be taken back to your hotel for refresh.

Day4-): Rural scenes – Kulen Mountain
After breakfast, travel across ancient reservoirs (long since devoid of water), through pretty villages and rice paddies to visit Sacred Kulen mountain, boasting fine river carvings and visit Cambodia's largest reclining Buddha, the river of lingas and the refreshing waterfalls. Return to Siem Reap Alternatively; visit the Landmine Museum run by a former Khmer Rouge child soldier.

Day5-):  Early Angkor Wat Sunrise and Exploration 
A sunrise tour starts at pre-dawn to witness the breathtaking view of Angkor Wat temple, the best place for photography. Continue to exploration of Angkor Wat [AD 1113], one of the mankind’s architectural gems. Take advantage of the relative cool and tranquility of the morning to explore the central complex and surrounding bas-reliefs.

I would recommend visiting this temple in the morning instead because it is more peaceful, taking either a local breakfast or returning to the hotel for late breakfast.  After such an early start you can decide if you feel like exploring Siem Reap town in the mid-late morning, more temple sites or relax with a massage and swim before lunch.

PM: Tonle Sap Lake and Old market
by road to the great Tonle Sap Lake is the richest fresh water fishing ground in the world, a national treasure producing an ever-changing landscape. The communities that live around the margins of the lake cope with huge seasonal variations in water levels by building their homes on floating bamboo rafts or 30ft stilts. It is well worth the extra effort to get away from the touristy village of Chong Khneas to the more genuine stilted Villages - Kompong Kleang or Kompong Pluk  Fishing Village* (dependent on water levels) - for an understanding of contemporary lake life.
Old market and Artisans D'angkor 
Explore the Old market for your typical souvenir shopping, selling all kinds of wonderful and exotic foodstuffs too. Whenever you are in the market for uniquely wrapped spices, hand- woven silk Ikats or Kromar - the Khmer fashion staple. Continue visit the Artisans D'angkor Centre, one the best work shops in town excellent quality sandstone, wood.

Day6 - Departure or Extension
Private transfer to Siem Reap International Airport for your departure flight. Depending on your flight time, optionally add-on a tour of the city's markets. Alternatively, discover more of Cambodia by adding on an extension to the sun-kissed coast or delve into the depths of the jungle and remote, little-visited provinces.
