Day 10

Day 10: Saigon
Drive 2 hours along the busy National Highway passing through urban areas. This allows a glimpse into the changing face of Vietnam. Upon arrival in My Tho, stop over at Vinh Trang pagoda, an ancient southern architectural gem. Built in 1849, the structure is a mixture of Asian and European architecture including elements from the Renaissance period, Romanesque style, French decorative flowers and Japanese enameled tile. The most valuable collection is the 18 arhats made from jackfruit tree wood in 1907. Another haft an hour drive to Cai Lay, the fertile land famous for its various tropical fruits and lush rice paddies.

Stop at the foot of Cai Lay Bridge for bike fitting. Pedal about 3km passing through authentic countryside & local homes, until you reach a small dirt road run along canal.

Disembark your boat and hop on your saddle again biking through village roads curving round the bamboo hedges, fruit gardens and sleepy villages.

Day 12

Day 12: Siemreap
After breakfast, drive to the stunning royal city Angkor Thom. At first glance, it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals enigmatic faces looking at every direction, with half-closed eyes, all looking content and serene. Continue your exploration by visiting Elephant Terrace served as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army and the Leper King Terrace with perfect carvings winding along a narrow passage way. We then drive to visit to the picturesque Ta Prom, a jungle-clad temple with overgrown trees, giving a haunting and exotic atmosphere. The magnificent roots of a tree push itself between the temple’s huge stone blocks in an embrace, emphasizing the ‘lost city’ feel.
Afternoon, continue exploring the stunning temples by a fun tuk-tuk ride to the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat, one of the world’s most impressive temple ruins constructed between 9th and 13th centuries. The temple still owns hundreds of fine carvings of Apsara and Hindu mythology. Stroll around the massive hallways and discover small shrines still in use today by the local people. Return hotel and evening at leisure
 

Day 13

Day 13: Siemreap
In the morning, drive about 45-minutes to the countryside, stopping en route to visit a local village. Arrive at the quay and board a wooden boat for a 1.5-hour ride on the Tonle Sap Lake (the best times are from July to February), also known as the Great Lake of Cambodia. Find out how communities live and work on the lake; see the floating schools, markets, and police stations, among others; observe their daily lives.
In the afternoon, enjoy a scenic drive to the rural outskirt 35km from the town and visit to Banteay Srei. On our way, we pass a few small Cambodia villages that have likely remained essentially the same for centuries. Banteay Srei loosely translates to ‘citadel of the women,’ but this is a modern appellation that probably refers to the delicate beauty of the carvings. Banteay Srei displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art. The walls are densely covered with some of the most beautiful, deep and intricate carvings of any Angkorian temple. The temple’s relatively small size, pink sandstone construction and ornate design give it a fairyland ambiance. Return hotel and evening at leisure
