Seabourn Pride Destinations Services Manager Riëtte Botes sent in this report from a recent two-night Seabourn Journey to Angkor Wat in Cambodia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with some of the most magnificent religious architecture in the world.
We have just completed our first Angkor Wat Overland trip this season! The group – which consisted of 21 guests and myself – departed from Sihanoukville, Cambodia, on December 28th and returned to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on December 30th. The guests stayed at the Sokha Angkor Resort, Siem Reap for two nights. Highlights included visits to Banteay Srei, Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple & Ta Prohm temple, where the movie “Tomb Raider” was filmed. Guests were also treated to a private poolside dinner & Apsara Dance show on the second evening (complete with an ice-sculpture).
Due to popular demand, we also included a last-minute addition to the trip – an excursion on the Tonle Sap Floating Village for a look at local life and culture. Some guests also ventured out to the night market in Siem Reap on their own and returned with lots of shopping bags and smiles!
All guests were extremely happy and enjoyed this once-in-a-lifetime trip!
