ITINERARY

Sambor Prei Kuk - Full Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

At 07:30 this morning, leave Siem Reap early for Sambor Prei Kuk (2.5 hrs), one of the most important pre-Angkorian sites in Cambodia, which has recently been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Sambor Prei Kuk, which was built in the Chenla period between the 6th and 7th centuries and likely served as the religious center of this pre-Angkorian culture, features over 100 well-preserved temples scattered in the forest of central Cambodia. The three main sites of the ancient city are linked by small and shady tracks. Enjoy a beautiful walk through the jungle with breath-taking views of these beautiful structures, which feature distinctive style and decoration compared with the later temples of the Angkor era.

The villages around the temple complex still practice the ancient art of craft making, using materials such as bamboo and rattan. Stop at one village to observe the local production. The community runs the Isanborei Craft Hut next to the temples and sells their products there as part of a community-based tourism project. Have the chance to visit and contribute to the sustainability of the people’s livelihood as the local community will prepare a simple but very tasty lunch served near the temple.

After lunch it is time to return to Siem Reap

Responsible Travel: Exotissimo has worked with GTZ (German Technical Cooperation) to develop Community Based Ecotourism in Sambor Prei Kuk. The catered lunch at the community, ox-cart rides, and local English speaking guides all support the local villagers. Likewise, the stop at Isanborei is a chance to contribute to the local community.
