DAY 1 
PHNOM PENH – ARRIVAL: 
Pick up from Phnom Penh airport upon arrival by our private vehicle and English speaking guide, check in at hotel and rest at leisure. Overnight at the hotel.

DAY 2 
PHNOM PENH – EXPLORE: 
In the morning, head out to the Choeung Ek Memorial, where a stupa made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of the infamous Killing Fields. This was the execution ground for the torture victims of Tuol Sleng and standing in this peaceful setting it's almost unthinkable to imagine that to date nearly 9000 corpses have been exhumed from the area. Confront Cambodia's tragic past on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture center. It's estimated that more than 20,000 people were held and tortured here. Lunch not included.
In the afternoon, visit the National Museum. Housed in a beautiful traditional building, it contains many outstanding examples of Khmer craftsmanship. Learn about a brighter period in Cambodian history with a visit to the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. Explore Wat Phnom, a peaceful temple situated on a hill for which the city is named. According to legend, a 14th-century woman named Penh found sacred Buddhist objects in the nearby river and placed them here on the small hill.
Overnight at hotel.

DAY 3 
PHNOM PENH – KRATIE – KOH TRONG ISLAND: 

This morning we leave early by private bus for our trip to Kratie. En route, we pass through Skuon (a small town famous for its tasty spiders), where it's possible to sample an eight-legged snack. It's recommended that you eat these furry arachnids as you would a crab, by cracking the body open and pulling the legs off one by one - delicious! Kratie is a picturesque town on the banks of the Mekong. Until recently Kratie was a strategic trading port on the river between Phnom Penh and Stung Treng. Both the French and Khmer Rouge found the town useful and there are a number of French colonial buildings that remain. Board a local boat from Kratie waterfront to Koh Trong for our island homestay. Approximately 280 families call this 6km island home. 
Depending on the season and the height of the Mekong River we may need to walk up a stretch of beach and then take a local bike to our destination. The island is famous for growing pomelos (supposedly some of the best in Cambodia), rice and other agricultural products. Our homestay is a wonderful opportunity to witness everyday Cambodian life and in the evening we enjoy a traditional-style dinner. Facilities are basic and multi share with mattresses, bedding and mosquito nets all provided. Underneath the house a few hammocks are strung around making this a very scenic place to unwind.

DAY 4 
KOH TRONG ISLAND – KRATIE – STUNG TRENG: 

A 9km loop road around the Koh Trong Island’s perimeter provides opportunities for us to leisurely cycle through traditional Khmer villages, fruits orchards and rice fields while observing the daily rituals and routines of traditional village life.
We will leave Koh Trang Island in the mid afternoon to Kratie City. We wander down the river boulevard and take a break for lunch before driving to Kampi Reserved Center where you see the River Dolphins.

Lunch not included.
Visit to the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing.

Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool (representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake) and Preah Khan temple, Built by the King Jayavarman VII. Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder hugging corridors.
