Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
The six-night, seven-day tour begins in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s captivating capital, where travelers can take guided explorations of the city’s famous landmarks and must-see sites. Travelers will spend three nights in Phnom Penh, soaking up insider experiences such as taking a trip to Koh Chen on Tonlé Sap Lake to visit the island’s specialist silver and copper smiths, and spending time in the old-world Khmer neighborhood of Stung Meanchey.
On the fourth day of the enchanting tour, travelers will journey to Siem Reap, the perfect gateway to Angkor’s ancient offerings. Said to be the place that symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people, Angkor is home to hundreds of captivating ancient temples and enthralling ruins.
Among other spectacular sites, travelers can visit the intriguing city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, protected by an eight-meter-high wall which creates a perfectly square barrier around the ancient city.
For those who’ve always yearned to be Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, the tour also provides the unique opportunity to live out their fantasy with a visit to Ta Prohm Temple which was used as the set of the 2001 film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie.
The final night of the tour of cultural exploration gives travelers the chance to sample some old-fashioned Khmer cuisine at a local restaurant while enjoying a traditional Apsara dance.
“Cambodia is a nation filled with rousing moments and heart-warming instants that last a lifetime,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “This highlight reel of experiences allows travelers the chance to see the finest aspects of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap – two of the most inspirational and iconic regions of Southeast Asia.”
