On this day, we visit to the harrowing genocide museum at Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields of Choeng Ek, both enduring memorials to the gruesome and brutal rule of the Khmer Rouge.
Note: A visit to Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields is a very disturbing experience for many, and guests should be forewarned as to the extent and graphic nature of such a visit. It remains a terrifying reminder of the atrocities committed under Khmer Rouge rule and visitors will walk away having gained some understanding of what happened to a generation lost and the turmoil it has placed on Cambodian society.
Today, we transfer to airport for your flight to Siem Reap. Arrival at Siem Reap, we transfer to Phokeethra Country Club (home of the Asian Tour’s Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open). Play one round including caddie and cart. After playing golf, transfer to hotel.
This morning you will have the option to visit the magnificent Angkor Wat. This temple is the largest religious building ever constructed and is one of the wonders of the world. Believed to have been undertaken as a temple and mausoleum for King Suryavarman II at the peak of the Khmer empire in the first half of the 12th century, Angkor Wat is the best-preserved of the Angkorian temples. Later, we continue to visit Ta Prohm (Jungle-tomb raider temple) through Victory gate ( South Gate ) into Angkor Thom and continue on foot until after Bayon. Return to your hotel to relax.
