You will all fly into Siem Reap to kick start the adventure – this is a city rich in history, where east fuses with west in spectacular style, situated at the foot of Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Temple complex. This old French colonial capital echoes European influences, with shuttered windows and delicate ironwork, but now interspersed with a buzzing nightlife, street food on tap and markets. Day one will be spent exploring the old town and everyone will be treated to a post-flight massage.
The second day will be a gentle introduction to the hustle and bustle of Asian life, whilst you see explore the wonder of Angkor Wat. This is a bucket list moment, and you'll quickly be in awe of the beauty and splendour of the world's largest religious complex.
On your third day you will head off to experience the elephants in a local reserve who have been rescued from working in the tourism industry and are now enjoying a long-awaited retirement. Here in the forest, they can finally roam free and unburdened, rediscovering their natural rhythm of life.
The rest of your time will be spent exploring the colourful markets that have everything on offer, eating some delicious street food along the way.
