Our Siem Reap itinerary

Jump to last reply

Would appreciate any feedback. This is only a plan, nothing set in stone as we may have to make adjustments/changes as we go. I just like to have a sense of what I want to see/do.

We are 2 seniors-ages 68 and 71, well traveled, and so far have never experienced jet lag. We have 14 nights/13 full days in Siem Reap. Intend to buy nonconsecutive 7 day passes for Angkor. I am a history/temple fanatic and into amateur photography. My husband is a bit more adventurous but thankfully goes along with my plans.

We are staying at the Royal Angkor Resort. My husband chose this when he saw pictures of the pool area. We are hoping to sightsee in the morning, have a lunch/pool break of several hrs., then more sightseeing from around 3 pm until sunset most days.

1/4/2014 Depart Buffalo, NY 9:10 am to JFK to Seoul/Incheon to Siem Reap with Jet Blue/Asianna Arlines.
1/5 Arrive SR 10:40 pm. Check into hotel.
1/6 7:30 am pick up. Purchase pass, West Gallery Angkor Wat, Phnom Bakheng, Baksei Chamkrong; lunch/pool break; Bayon.
1/7 Full day OSMOSE.
1/8 7:00 am pick up for our 2 days, 1 night trip to remote sites-this is already arranged. Banteay Chhmar, overnight Anlong Veng.
1/9 Finish remote trip-very early start. Preah Vihear, Koh Ker, Beng Melea.
1/10 Landmine museum, shopping, massage, relaxing. Apsara Theatre for dinner and show.
1/11 All day A. Thom- wall walk, Baphoun, Phimeanakas, Terrace of the Leper King, Terrace of the Elephants, Preah Palilay, Chau Say Tevoda, sunset A. Thom. No pool break this day.
1/12 Sunrise A. Wat and stay to explore A. Wat, Prasat Kravan; lunch/pool break; Banteay Kdei, Sras Srang, E. Mebon.
1/13 Quad Adventure Cambodia; lunch/pool break; cooking school class for dinner.
1/14 Banteay Srei, Kbal Spean; Wat Athvea, Banteay Samre. No pool break this day.
1/15 Ta Prohm, Ta Keo, Ta Nei, A. Wat again, sunset Pre Rup. This may be a no pool break day.
1/16 Phnom Kulen National Park-lunch there and a swim; Rolous Group.
1/17 Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Som; short lunch/pool break; Phnon Bok, sunset Phnon Krom. May have to forego the pool break?
1/18 Beyond Unique Escape's Motorbike Adventure-something my husband really wants to do. I figure since I've survived zip lining, white water rafting, horseback riding several hrs. in the jungle and a camel safari I could do this! Besides I get to ride with our guide on the motorbike. This is a full day tour with several stops so not constantly sitting on a motorbike.

1/19 Depending on water levels we hope to take boat to Battambang for our next destination in Cambodia.

So what do you think? Doable or not? Anything I missed? I've tried to combine a mix of temples with other activities.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
