Azuki Tours were in Siem Reap and keeps on wondering what is ‘Khmer’ because it
is everywhere. Just a quick information, Khmer was once an ancient kingdom in
SEA, when it ruled over the entire Mekong valley from the capital at Angkor until it
was destroyed by Siamese conquests in the 12th and 14th centuries. Basically, the
highlights of Siem Reap would be the ancient temple of Angkor Watt built in the
12th century. Siem Reap is a perfect getaway package for a short break. If you are
a fan of Tomb Rider, the shooting was actually done here. Other than Angkor Watt,
we will visit the Tonle Sap Lake (SEA Largest freshwater lake) and see the Floating
Village. You can feed crocodile in a farm or visit one of the Gem shops which are
selling varieties of local gems like Sapphires, Rubins or Emeralds. Sappires from
Pailin are considered among the best in the world.
Transfer from Airport to the hotel. Check in time is 14:00. In case you reach the
hotel earlier, luggage can be stored at the reception until check in. We will then
proceed for lunch. Our tour starts after lunch to visit the Artisan Silk Farm to see
how silk is being processed. Then we will have dinner and you are free to visit the
night market or we could arrange for the Rosana Broadway or Cambodia Circus.

countries around the world like Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Korea and India.
After breakfast, we will visit the famous Angkor Watt, which is also listed as one of
UNESCO World Heritage site. After lunch, we will bring you to learn more about
Cambodian from their Cultural village whereby, all the miniatures of famous
historical buildings and structures, local customs and practices of all races are here.

aborigines and more. Free and easy after dinner.
