DAY 2 - Siem ReapMealsMEALS [B|L]

Exo TravelCycling distance: Up to 25km Difficulty: Easy

After yoga and breakfast, depart for an unforgettable cycling tour through the Angkor complex. A cycling guide will lead a special trip through the jungle ruins, taking less-travelled paths to some of the most famous sites in Angkor.

Begin the Angkor cycling trip out of Siem Reap to the ticket checkpoint at the Angkor Archaeological Park, continuing on to the famous Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th Century, Angkor Wat is constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolising Mount Meru, the home of the gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology.

Continue to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire. Angkor Thom is most notable for its perfectly square, eight-meter-high retaining wall and lavish entrance gates. Inside the centre of the complex is the 12th century Bayon Temple, well-known for its 54 towers carved with enigmatic faces, the Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King.

Return to Siem Reap for an organic lunch at the Niam Niam restaurant before spending the afternoon relaxing at leisure. A 60-minute body oil or foot massage is included after the morning’s cycling.

DAY 3 - Siem ReapMealsMEALS [B|L]

Exo TravelSiem Reap – Temples (06 km): 10 mins

Rising early this morning, depart on a sunrise meditation session at Phnom Krom. Serenity and wonder meets to start the day in Angkor with this unique wellness experience. Phnom Krom is a 9th century Angkorian temple located on top of a hill, overlooking the Tonle Sap Lake. With the first rays of sunrise on Tonle Sap and the mystical ruins of Phnom Krom as backdrop, be guided through a series of breathing techniques essential for deep meditation and for ‘’samadhi,’’ the path to self-realization. The practice of pranayama meditation brings about harmony among the body, mind and spirit and leaves one feeling energetic, enthusiastic and positive.

Head back out to the temple park to continue the Angkor tour. En route, stop at Wat Preah Prom Rath, one of the most splendid pagodas in Siem Reap, surrounded by beautiful gardens and decorative sculptures. Here, Buddhist monks will offer a private blessing ceremony, wishing good health and safe journeys – a truly memorable experience!
