Overview

Discover the UNESCO World Heritage site, Isanapura. Before the foundation of Angkor as the capital of the Khmer Empire, this was the most important religious center over the 6th and 7th centuries. Explore less frequently visited hundreds of intricately carved brick and stone towers erected here to honour the Hindu gods for an excellent day trip  for those looking to get off the beaten path.

Full Day Tour: Sambor Preikuk
- Full Day
At 07:30 this morning, leave Siem Reap for Sambor Prei Kuk (2.5 hrs), one of the most important pre-Angkorian sites in Cambodia, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Sambor Prei Kuk, which features over 100 well-preserved temples scattered in the forest of central Cambodia, was built in the Chenla period between the 6th and 7th centuries and likely served as the religious center of this pre-Angkorian culture.

The three main sites of the ancient city are linked by small and shady tracks. Enjoy a beautiful walk through the jungle with breath-taking views of these beautiful structures that feature distinctive style and decoration compared to the later temples of the Angkor era. 

The villages around the temple complex still practice the ancient art of craft making, using materials such as bamboo and rattan. Stop at one village to observe local production. The community runs the Isanborei Craft Hut next to the temples and sells their products there as part of a community-based tourism project. Have the chance to visit and contribute to the sustainability of the people’s livelihood as the local community will prepare a simple but very tasty lunch served near the temple.

After lunch, return to Siem Reap. (L)

Responsible Travel: This program was created in collaboration with GTZ (German Technical Cooperation) to develop Community Based Ecotourism in Sambor Prei Kuk. The catered lunch at the community, ox-cart rides, and local English-speaking guides all support the local villagers. Likewise, the stop at Isanborei is a chance to contribute to the local community.
