Following a pick-up from your Siem Reap hotel, drive to the royal city and former capital of the Khmer Empire to walk among the ornate temples of Bayon and Baphuon. Upon arrival, enter the city through the impressive South Gate, and drive towards Bayon Temple.

At first glance the temple is nothing more than a shapeless mass of stones. Get closer, and you will see enigmatic faces carved on the temple walls, depicting scenes of Khmer life.

Continue to the Terrace of the Elephants to see where the Khmer kings viewed their victorious armies as they returned to the citadel. Next, look at the detailed carvings of the Terrace of the Leper King, winding your way along a narrow passage that leads to the 3-tiered Temple of Baphuon, dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva.

Hear the sounds of water lapping up against the side of the boat and watch in awe as the incredible floating village rises against the backdrop of the great Tonle Sap Lake. In this idyllic village less than 10miles (15km) from Siem Reap, explore the village on this fantastic Sunset Tour.

Departing from your hotel or guesthouse around 15.30, take a comfortable air-conditioned car or minibus drive with your knowledgeable guide, who will be able to help point out the culture and life all around you in English (and Khmer, of course!). See this incredible village in a very special way.

Pass by rice paddies and lotus fields for the opportunity to stop and take photographs of the lotus flower, highly important in Buddhist culture (please note that depending on the time of year, the views of the lotus and rice fields will vary).

Upon arrival at the port, transfer to a mini Tara boat driven by an experienced driver. Once on the water, stop at the Crocodile and Fish Farm (depending on current water levels) and learn about some of the trades practiced by those living on the lake. Visit the souvenir shop to purchase gifts or snap some photos from the viewing deck.

After this visit, return to the boat and head through the floating village for a glimpse of the local Cambodians going about their daily life. After a tranquil glide through the town, arrive at Queen Tara, the biggest boat on the lake, in the heart of the floating village. Here, enjoy a well-deserved full buffet meal and all-inclusive drinks.

Finally, the reason you’ve come: the sunset. Relax with a drink in your hand and soak in the beauty around you. After the last bit of light fades, head back to your guesthouse or hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle.

The grounds of the Palace are also home to the Silver Pagoda, which received its name because its floor is made of 5,329 silver tiles.

See gold and jeweled Buddha statues in the Silver Pagoda, and the Angkor Wat style Bell Tower.

Then, learn about the turbulent years of the Khmer Rouge at the infamous Tuol Sleng Museum. Located in a former high school that was used as the notorious Security Prison 21, the Genocide Museum traces the story of the Killing Fields and the torture and executions that took place from 1975-79. See exhibits that tell the stories of some of the estimated 20,000 prisoners that were killed.
