Detailed itinerary

Day 1
Arrive Siem Reap, Cambodia

Siem Reap is a sleepy backwater serving as a gateway to the ancient capital of Angkor. It is hard to believe that at its peak in the 12th century, this was one of the most advanced civilizations in the world and home to more than 1 million inhabitants.

Siem Reap International must be one of the most architecturally striking airports all over the world. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by your local guide and transferred to the hotel.

Overnight in Siem Reap
Dinner
Day 2
Temples of Angkor

Optional: sunrise over Angkor Wat temple. Return to your hotel for a late breakfast. If you’re an early-riser consider catching the sunrise over Angkor Wat temple. It is certainly one of the most unique places in the world for sunrise but be forewarned, you won’t be alone!

After breakfast, (return to) visit the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor – one of the world’s most impressive heritage sites. The temple still holds fine examples of stone carvings and engravings from the rich Angkorian era. Look for Apsara’s or celestial angel figures dancing in intricate still life scenes on the bas-reliefs. In the afternoon, take a tuk-tuk ride from the Southgate of Angkor Thom to Bayon and explore the mysterious Royal city of Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom’s 50-tower temple is an inspiring sight. At first glance, it seems to be a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are engulfed by the heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes. Enjoy sunset at one of the quieter temples.

Overnight in Siem Reap
Breakfast
Day 3
Banteay Srei and Ta Prohm

This morning, drive further into the Cambodian countryside to visit the petite but magnificent temple, Banteay Srei, built in the 10th Century and dedicated to Shiva. The temple was the birthplace of Khmer classical style architecture and the bas-relief work is the best remaining example of Khmer classical art. The pink sandstone structure hosts a series of striking and beautiful sculptures, lintels, pediments, and friezes. Khmers say women must have carved the temple for the details are too fine for the hands of a man. Continue our sightseeing after lunch to visit the striking Ta Prohm. The temple was once reclaimed by the jungle and disappeared until a French explorer uncovered the ruins. It remains overgrown, an oddly haunting and powerful scene. The Ficus family continues to embrace the ruins with their twisty, winding roots and branches, ever threatening to reclaim the temple.

Overnight in Siem Reap
Breakfast
Day 4
Siem Reap to Prey Praseth Village, Phnom Penh

Meet with your guide at the hotel and you will be transferred directly to Siem Reap airport for your flight to Phnom Penh.

Upon arrival in Phnom Penh Airport, meet your Shinta Mani Wild’s representative and you will be transferred to the resort in about 3 hours. They will discuss with you the guided excursions and activities they offer during your stay.

Shinta Mani Wild is a radical new fusion of world-class design, hospitality, and conservation. The camp was born when world-renowned designer Bill Bensley identified an unprotected, 350-hectare wildlife corridor – and set out to save it from poaching, mining, and logging. Sustainability informs everything we do, hence our partnership with the Wildlife Alliance (whose rangers have an onsite station), and our resident naturalists, who assist our chef. The Shinta Mani Foundation spearheads our conservation and community outreach programs, providing local employment via our hospitality school in Siem Reap. Guests can absorb our ethos on wildlife expeditions, foraging tours and more.

ALILA VILLAS KOH RUSSEY abounds with stunning coastlines, dramatic headlands, powder sand beaches, and tropical forests, all framed by the emerald waters of the gulf and the azure sky. An ecological escape with a sense of place, 15% development and 85% nature – a villa community infused with Khmer culture and charm where privacy, nature, and local hospitality take center stage. 62 pavilions and villas, each with a pool, offer an unparalleled location for an exclusive lifestyle experience.
