Superb day tour in Cambodia from Siem Reap
Meet your local guide at your Siem Reap hotel and transfer by private car with driver to the village of Bantreay Srei, the loveliest of temples here, the Fortress of the Women, tiny but beautifully carved with an intricacy and elegance that makes it a masterpiece of Khmer sculpture. Continue north to Kbal Spean, one of the earliest Hindu pilgrimage sites in Cambodia. A moderate 3 km trek up the hill through dense jungle will reward you with excellent views over the plains and the Kulen hills. During the raining season, enjoy a refreshing bathe in the beautiful waterfall, which is extremely popular with the local families. After the descent, lunch will be served at a local restaurant at Kbal Spean.
Then head on to the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity, the first nature conservation center in Cambodia. The aims of the center are the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding and reintroduction of threatened wildlife, providing environmental education, promoting wildlife conservation and training local villagers in the sustainable use of natural resources. You can see various endangered species, reptiles and a beekeeping project.
On the way back to Siem Reap, stop at the Landmine Museum which promotes mine awareness and education. Mr. Aki Ra, the museum founder, was a child soldier during the Khmer Rouge regime and is today working as a de-miner. The museum serves also as a rescue center for a number of landmine amputee children that Aki Ra had brought off Phnom Penh’s streets or from impoverished rural communities. In the afternoon, return to Siem Reap and your hotel.
