To Angkor and Beyond

10 Nights: from US$2463 Trip Code: HTC

Though justly famous for Angkor Wat, its national symbol and one of the most spectacular monuments in the world, there is much more to Cambodia than its most famous icon. This trip takes you beyond Angkor, visiting hidden temples and forgotten cities rarely seen by tourists. Read more >

Hidden Temples of Cambodia combines the most well-known and impressive of Cambodia's temple ruins (they're famous for a reason, after all), with some of its lesser-known sites from the Khmer Empire and earlier. Cambodia is a treasure trove of archaeological gems, and most visitors who confine themselves to the areas surrounding Siem Reap never realised the true extent of what these ancient civilisations left behind.

This tour has been designed to give an introduction to these little-visited sites, from the forgotten city of Banteay Chhmar (once as grand as Angkor Thom) to the pre-Angkorian ruins of Sambor Prei Kuk, built during the Chenla Kingdom in the sixth century. A highlight of the trip is sure to be Preah Vihear, the second of Cambodia's two World Heritage Sites, which was only recently declared safe for travel by the FCO. This temple complex is known not only for the quality of its workmanship and excellent state of preservation, but for its views: the temple is perched on top of an escarpment, with unparalleled vistas over the surrounding plains of both Thailand and Cambodia.

The trip will conclude in Siem Reap, to give you a chance to explore the famous Angkor Wat and its environs. The itinerary has been planned to avoid the crowds as much as possible, visiting popular temples early in the morning and quieter gems during the day.

Throughout your trip, your guide will prove an invaluable insight into Cambodia's fascinating - and turbulent - history, from before Angkor right up until the sombre events of the late 20th century.
