local guide. You will transfer to your five-star hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, and then
have time to rest and relax.

Today’s tour provides a fascinating insight into Thailand’s Second World War history. The

Railway”. This fascinating attraction offers an educational insight into the history of the area.
We also visit the War Cemetery which contains the graves of an estimated 9,000 Allied
soldiers who lost their lives building the bridge and the notorious railway. Another highlight of

great Khmer Empire. You will visit the sprawling Elephant Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper
King and the enchanting Bayon. This 12th century masterpiece lies at the very centre of
Angkor Thom City and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior
gallery walls have extensive bas-reliefs but the main features are the towers each with 3 or 4
gently smiling faces, over 200 in total.. PJ de Beerski wrote of them; “godliness in the
majesty and the size, mystery in the expression.”
Continue your exploration of the Angkor Temples at Ta Prohm, the temple that has been left
largely in its natural state since its “re-discovery” by French explorers. Surrounded by jungle,
its labyrinth of stone hallways is overgrown with the roots and limbs of massive banyan
trees, which envelop the stone like tentacles. Lunch at local restaurant
This afternoon, you will visit Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world, with a volume of
stone equalling that of the Cheops pyramid in Egypt. It is unlike all the other Khmer temples
in that it faces west, and is inspired by 12th Century Hinduism. Its symmetrical towers are
stylized on the modern Cambodian flag. Conceived by Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat took an
estimated 30 years to build. It is generally believed to have been a funeral temple for the
king. Sunset at Angkor Wat

The luxury hotel lies on the western bank of the Choa Phraya River, the ancient River of the Kings, close to the Sathorn Bridge. A private ferry service links the hotel with the River City Complex as well as further shopping facilities and entertainment venues on the other side of the river.

This exclusive luxury hotel is located at the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, just a few minutes from the town centre where guests will discover a wide selection of shopping and entertainment venues.
Wonderful panoramic views are to be had over the Saigon River from the hotel.

With three-and-a-half decks, Jayavarman is as spacious as it is beautiful. Guests can admire Khmer artifacts in the Henry Mouhot Lounge, mingle in the Club 1930 Bar, dine in the elegant Indochine
Dining Hall, and recharge with spa treatments in the Apsara Spa. A Jacuzzi pool is located on the top sun deck, which offers spectacular views of the passing delta.

With its centenary fast approaching, the iconic Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is very much part of the history and scenery of Siem Reap.
The hotel is a commanding sight as you draw near, oozing an air of refined luxury that continues as you step through the impressive entrance and into the lobby. Styled in an eclectic manner, much
like Siem Reap itself, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor proudly showcases many aspects of this ancient city and the people who have passed through it. Art Deco curves flawlessly mingle with Cambodian motifs and colonial furnishings, not to mention the original wooden elevator, which is still very
much in use. That being said an incredibly modern feel prevails throughout, thanks to several renovations over the years.
