Day 2: Siem Reap

Today your private guide and driver, will show you a full day of historical adventures, as you're being whisked away to see the breathtaking architecture and natural setting of one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. The different sites of Angkor cover around 250 square miles, including the forested areas. It features ruins dating back to a period between the 9th and 15th century, all sculpted in the distinctive Khmer style. As you approach the park, you will first see the South Gate of Angkor Thom. A walk along a half a mile trail past the walls that lead to a hidden temple is optional, but your guide will definitely ensure that you see the amazing temple areas of Bayon and Baphoun, as well as the Terrace of Elephants and Leper King. Take a break and have lunch inside the park before you head over to the grey-stoned jungle temple of Ta Phrom. Here you enter a mysterious world, as tree stumps seem to grow out of the temple and roots crawl up its walls. For many people this is the highlight of Angkor. The most famous part of the park is, of course, Angkor Wat, known to visitors around the world. Finish the tour with a peaceful sunset, as shades of violets, oranges, and pinks spread across the sky. This private tour includes transportation, an English-speaking guide, lunch, water, and towels.

This evening you will be picked up from your hotel by tuk tuk, to visit the Phare Circus Tent, located just outside of town. Enjoy a show at what is called the Cambodian Circus, which starts at 8 pm, and lasts about an hour. Phare is a Cambodian non-profit art organization founded in 1994 by eight young Cambodians, returning from refugee camps along the Thai Border. The purpose is to improve the development of local communities by providing education and professional artistic training. The shows are constantly rotating depending on the time you visit. Transportation by tuk tuk and entrance tickets are included.

Day 3: Siem Reap

In the morning you will be met by your local guide at your hotel with high-quality mountain bikes to bike through the Siem Reap countryside. Pedaling along quiet trails, through rice fields and small villages, your tour guide will take you to a local market where the colours and smells of raw meat, vegetables, fish, fruits, underscored by the constant yelling of stallholders, will make for an exciting experience. After this visit to the local market, you are going to cycle to a local family’s house where you will learn to cook some signature dishes, to be enjoyed together at lunch. After a short rest and a glass of sugar cane juice, a refreshingly sweet drink poured over ice, you can help to prepare a Khmer meal which you will later offer to the monks at a local pagoda. Buddhist monks live away from their families and are not allowed to have regular jobs. They depend on the faith and charity of the local people. After you have finished your Khmer cooking, the chef and his wife will show you how to pack the meal and some rice into a banana leaf. A short walk takes us to the pagoda where the monks live so you can offer the alms. Afterwards, the monk will give you a blessing, and you can ask him everything you like to know regarding Cambodian culture and Buddhism. This private tour includes a private tuk-tuk transfer, an English-speaking guide, cooking with local family & lunch, cool water, and towel.

This afternoon, enjoy a countryside trip to the floating village of Mechrey Village on the Tonle Sap Lake. Your first stop on the way is at Ampil Peam and you can stroll through this traditional village where locals still live the same way as they have for centuries. Upon arrival at Mechrey, you will board a boat to explore the area. Your guide will explain the biodiversity of the area and discuss the lake’s importance for the livelihood of thousands of locals. Tonle Sap, meaning "Great Lake" has been declared a UNESCO biosphere. The meaning behind the name is also the inspiration for the lake and river system. You will learn how its flow changes direction twice a year, according to the season. Depending on the length of your visit, you can enjoy a golden sunset on the lake with a few cold beers and soft drinks. This private tour includes a private transportation, an English-speaking guide, entrance fees, boat trip, drinks, water and towels.

  • Jennifer C. — August 10, 2018 — Asia

    Maria, our travel agent, was fantastic! She was extremely flexible to multiple requests. And, she produced an unforgettable vacation. Tajma, our guide in Thailand, was professional, knowledge, and a truly warm and wonderful person. She shared her country with us and answered countless questions. She went above and beyond what was required to make our trip special.

  • Emily G. — July 04, 2018 — Asia

    This trip was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The planning was incredibly simple and the final product was even better than I could have ever imagined. Our local guides seemed to be hand-picked just for us and they really went above and beyond to help make our trip not only unforgettable, but also very easy. Thank you for helping to create such a memorable experience. I would absolutely recommend Kensington to anyone looking to plan a trip.

  • Karli H. — August 04, 2018 — Asia

    We had an absolutely amazing trip - every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. We felt well taken care of, but at the same time our guides gave us space to enjoy the trip on our own at times. We are so happy that we booked through Kensington Tours, as all of the organization and planning was done for us - thanks for a great experience!

  • Janet T. — June 23, 2018 — Asia

    Our multi-generational family of 8 recently returned from an amazing escorted, personalized 12-day tour of Japan. The quality was everything we expected and hoped for. Our tour planner, Anne-Laure, was fantastic and so was our Japanese guide, Mayumi. Both were attentive to our interests, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Transportation was high quality and on-time. The diversity and pace of the activities made our trip interesting and memorable. Our guide was flexible and allowed us to fine-tune our itinerary to meet our individual preferences. We felt safe and well-cared for. Japan is a pristine and polite country with a lot of history and we enjoyed it very much.

  • Richard F. — May 15, 2018 — Asia

    I am at a loss in describing how perfect our trip was! Every single detail was taken care of and the activities were amazing!

  • Derrick D. — May 22, 2018 — Asia

    Everything about this trip was AMAZING! From start to finish, Jennifer and her team responded promptly, and suggestions that catered to my ideal Bali trip.

  • Frances B. — April 11, 2018 — Asia

    Our trip to Japan was awesome! We learned so much about the customs, food and spiritual life. We never had any concerns about where we needed to be or when, even with quite a few transfers.

  • Steven C. — February 10, 2018 — Asia

    I have traveled all over the world with various travel companies. Kensington is ranked right at the top! Honestly could not have expected more than they provided.

  • Kimberley E. — February 13, 2018 — Asia

    Extraordinary Experience! From beginning to end, we were well taken care of. Thank you so very much. A very memorable trip indeed!

  • Andrew C. — January 06, 2018 — Asia

    We had a fantastic time on our Honeymoon! The level of service that Kensington provided from the time we started planning the trip to the plane ride home was second to none. I would not book a trip using any other agency!
