In the morning, you will cycle to Kbal Spean, one of the most fantastic and elaborate spectacle in Angkor. Taking a 30-minute hike uphill to reach the eminent “river of a thousand lingas”, you might see these symbolic carvings along the riverbed. From there, you cycle to Banteay Srei Temple, a relic renowned for its antique pink sandstones and sharp, intricate carvings. Have lunch at a community-based tourism.
On the way back, you will stop en route to taste sugar palm/ Khmer noodles and join hands with Preah Dak Village’s community planting trees to support reforestation progress in Cambodia. Your plant, maybe a jackfruit or mango tree, would later help both offsetting carbons in nature environment and benefiting local harvest.
In the end of the day, let’s reward yourself with a memorable cruise among Angkor Thom compound on a gondola paddle boat while watching sunset over Prasat Chroung temple. Champagne will be served on the boat, when you slowly float along the sound water, round this ancient moat.
