5 nights/6 days at $750 per person shared room or $950 per person for a private room. ( This trip can be paired up with our Chiang Mai, Thailand Trip which takes place the week before and also our Laos Trip which takes place after our Cambodia trip) Join us in Siem Reap Cambodia for an amazing jammed packed adventure you will never forget. I have secured 14 rooms at the 4 star luxury boutique Golden Temple Retreat in the heart of Siem Reap. The hotel is within walking distance to the famous night markets, and restaurants. We will tour the temples of Angkor Wat on bicycle and experience a fun night under the big top at the Cambodian Circus. Our second tour will take us to the countryside and board a boat for a glimpse of how the local people live in the floating village of Kampong Phluk. Before we arrive at the village we will make a stop to receive a buddhist water blessing. A special dinner has been planned at Haven restaurant where local, disadvantaged youth are trained for culinary careers to secure an independent future. You will also have the opportunity to bring schools supplies to a local village school located 2 hours outside of Siem Reap. There will be time for you to do your own independent exploring too. This is an active trip for fun minded people. If you enjoy laughing, dancing, exploring and adventure then this trip is for you. Bring a family member or friend, but make sure they are fun!
