Sightseeing of the city follows to include Haw Pha Kaew which used to house the much-travelled Emerald Buddha image, the That Luang Stupa which is most revered by Laotians, Patuxai which is Laos's very own Arc de Triomphe, and the fine Si Saket temple built in 1818 by Chao Anou who was educated in the Siamese court and which the Thai invaders did not destroy.

Lunch at Angkor Reach Restaurant.In the afternoon visit Banteay Srei the only pink sandstone temple with the most exquisite carvings of apsaras found in Angkor. Proceed to Kbal Spean in the Kulen mountains to see the fantastic ''River of a Thousand Lingas'' choked with stone phallic carvings in the river bed with clear waters flowing over them. Its significance for the Khmer civilization is all-consuming. There are over 20 temple ruins and huge images of Hindu gods in this area that is strewn with unexploded American bombs and so we will not visit any of them due to the potential danger. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 5: Rolous - Angkor Wat (B, L)

Along the walls of its galleries the glories of the Angkor civilization are carved in bas-relief. We will fully explore this largest Hindu-Buddhist temple in the world, the highlight of any tour to Angkor. As the sun sinks to the horizon, climb the steep incline up Bakheng Hill to the ruins of Bakheng Temple to see the magical play of the fading light on Angkor Wat and the Tonle Sap in the distance. Overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 6: Siem Reap - Phnom Penh (B, L) - by flight

Breakfast at the hotel. Morning excursion to the Great Lake for a boat cruise to see village life on the Tonle Sap.
