Cambodia adventure with Ms. Alexa Dorina

  • Travel Style: Cambodia Travel

My friends and I visited Vietnam, with Amovietnam Travel, in February 2013,

The experience was very positive. The owner Lam, and his staff arranged for us a perfect individual tour.

Again this year, in February, we decided to return to Southeast Asia to visit Laos and Cambodia. Given the great experience, we are always entrusted to Amovietnam for the organization of our trip.

Once again the choice was right. The tour was organized very well, Lam has chosen great hotels. The guides and drivers are very competent and kind.

I highly recommend Amovietnam Travel to those who want to visit these fantastic South East Asitic countries.

Once again THANK YOU LAM !!!

Day 2: Luang Prabang – Pak Ou cave  (B/L/-)

We then board an upstream cruise on the Mekong River, which gives us a panoramic view of the tranquil countryside. We’ll make sure to stop at the Pak Ou Caves, sanctuaries consisting of two large caverns, both repositories for thousands of Buddha images. We will also stop at a few villages during the day, including Ban Xanghai where local rice wine is produced.  We return to Luang Prabang in the afternoon, we then climb up to the top of Mount Phousi to explore the sacred, gilded stupa as well as capture a beautiful view of the city and the Mekong River at sunset.

In the afternoon, we head to Banteay Srei, Angkor’s ultimate art gallery. This petite pink temple is the jewel in the crown of Angkor-era sculpture. The elaborate carvings here are the finest found in Cambodia and the name translates as ‘Fortress of the Women’, thanks to the intricate detail here, considered too fine for the hands of a man.

Originally believed to date from the latter part of the Angkor period, inscriptions at the site suggest it was built by a Brahman in 967. However, some architectural historians have suggested that the inscriptions may date from an earlier structure on this site and the temple is in fact later, marking a high-water mark in Khmer sculpture.

Later we visit the 12th century temple of Banteay Samre. Built by King Suryavarman II, the genius behind Angkor Wat, this temple has been extensively restored. The temple is unique in that over-quarrying of sandstone led to the use of laterite for the roofed corridors. The pediments above the inner doors here include some of the most accomplished carving from the Angkor period.

Then Enjoy sunset at Pre Rup Temple.

Inside are some of the country’s most cherished treasures, including a life-size gold Buddha studded with 9584 diamonds, the largest weighing 25 carats. There is also a delicate emerald Buddha made of baccarat crystal, which gives the temple its Khmer name of Wat Preah Keo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha).

We leave the Royal Palace and continue to the nearby National Museum, home to the world’s finest collection of sculpture from the Angkor period. The exquisite building was completed between 1917 and 1920 and features a lush courtyard garden surrounded by collections from the pre-Angkor, Angkor and post-Angkor periods.
