Get picked up by your private guide at your hotel and enjoy the quick ride out of Siem Reap's bustling center to the quiet, moat-bordered temple complex at Angkor Wat. Follow your guide toward the main temple, listening as they explain the significance of this religious site and point out common stylistic elements, like ornate bas-reliefs depicting elegant apsaras.
Admire the trunks at Ankgor Thom's Terrace of the Elephants, pass underneath the arch of the Southern Gate, and then recharge with a tasty lunch of freshly prepared Cambodian specialties.
In the afternoon, head to the tranquil shores of Tonle Sap lake to take a boat cruise past the stilted houses and floating markets that make up the lake's charming village.
