Upon your arrival in Siem Reap, you will be welcomed by a local English-speaking guide and transferred to your hotel for check-in. Siem Reap is the base for exploring the fabled temples of Angkor, the ancient capital of the Khmer Empire.

Optional tour: Bambu Stage – If you aren’t too tired from jet lag, you may wish to catch an evening performance at the Bambu Stage. Offering different shows on different nights of the week, Bambu Stage is a great introduction to Cambodian culture and history. In addition to a shadow puppet performance and a photographic history of Cambodia, Bambu Stage stages Angkor Decoded, a show that features the use of a large model to build Angkorian temples right in front of your eyes as well as your participation! Complemented by captivating storytelling, live drawing, projections, and music, Angkor Decoded provides a rich story that’s fun, interactive, and engaging.

Enjoying a delicious breakfast with a cup of coffee is the best way to start a new day. This morning, you will have the opportunity to leave the center of Siem Reap and go to the countryside to discover the beauty of a less-known floating village on Tonle Lake. Kampong Khleang floating village is 55 kilometers from Siem Reap. With 10,000 people, this is currently the largest floating village in the area.

After the main highway, you turn onto the winding dirt road. Stop for the hot, sticky rice, and observe the local farmers working on their rice paddies. Upon arrival, you use a motor boat to explore Kampong Khleang along with two other floating villages and the great lake. Life on the lake is not pleasant and is always affected by harsh weather conditions. In the rainy season, the lake surface area usually expands six times while the depth increases nine times. That is why most houses have high floors and float on the lake in the rainy season. In the dry season, towering stilts are revealed, like wooden skyscrapers.

During the boat ride, you will make stops to see where Bridge of Life works, visit a stilted home and see a Cambodian pagoda to learn more about local life. Your tour guide is happy to show you a small floating village known as the natural flood barrier in the area. You ride back to the harbor, see your driver, and return downtown for lunch.

This afternoon, you are transferring to the airport, departing for Da Nang, a beautiful beach town in the center of Vietnam. Upon arrival, you receive a warm greeting from your local English-speaking guide. After 45 minutes of driving, you check into a hotel in downtown Hoi An.

Overnight in Hoi An.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch.


Siem Reap Kampong Khleang

Hoi An offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, allowing your family to unwind and slowly absorb the charms of this small town on the coast.

You can experience a slow-paced lifestyle by taking a city tour of UNESCO landmarks. On the walking tour, you will visit original temples, ancient houses, and community halls while fragrant food stalls dot the sidewalks, allowing locals to share their culinary culture. The second part of this morning is learning how to make a colorful lantern. You will visit a family with a tradition of making lanterns. Here, you can see many different types of lanterns, and with the guidance of a lantern craftsman, you will make your favorite lantern.

Enjoy a tasty lunch and walk back to the hotel. It’s time for your children to enjoy the hotel’s swimming pool and relax at the beach while you can try massage packages, which are inexpensive, enjoyable, and relaxing.

Hoi An Ancient Town

Good morning! Start a day full of energy and joy with hot dishes and a cup of strong coffee. Your guide will be waiting at your hotel lobby at 8:00 am. He will give you a brief of this morning’s activities, help you check your bike’s conditions, put you on a helmet and start the cycling tour right after.

 

After 10 minutes of pedaling, you will exit the ancient town area and immerse yourself in the poetic scenery of the countryside. While cycling, you can observe the daily activities of locals. Before your eyes is a lush countryside scene with red brick houses, rivers winding around the villages, coconut trees reflecting on the lake, shrimp ponds, green vegetable fields, farmers working in their fields, and buffaloes grazing. You stop at the gate of Cam Thanh village. Take a short break before enjoying a one-hour ride on a traditional wooden boat to explore the water coconut palm forest.

Saying goodbye to Cam Thanh villagers, you get on the bike and pedal to Tra Que – the organic vegetable village. There, you enjoy the rustic village scene and get numerous authentic experiences with farming activities. Visit Kum Quat restaurant and join a cooking class with Thành & his wife.
