Phnom Penh and Siem Reap are cities that contain the richest Buddhism and Hinduism engravings in Cambodia. Your tour aims to explore the most remarkable religious relics in both cities: in Phnom Penh, you will visit the National Museum, which is the world's leading museum of Khmer sculpture, the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, that are often regarded as the homes to amazing Buddhist statuary. Then carry on to Siem Reap to see the earliest temples of the Angkor period at Roluos, the highlights of the grand circuit, sites of Angkor Thom, such as the Victory Gate, the Bayon, the Terrace of the Elephants, the Terrace of the Leper King, etc, and the magnificent Angkor Wat architectures.

Besides discovering valuable religious artifacts in both cities, you will get a chance to visit historical sites that were crucial during the Vietnam War: the Museum of Genocide located in Tuol Saleng, which was a torture center established by the Khmer Rouge intended to “clean up” Vietnamese Communist forces and the Killing Fields of Choeng Ek before heading to Vietnam. Then carry on your adventures in Vietnam by touring Ho Chi Minh City, visiting the reputable Cu Chi Tunnel, which was a three-level underground city created by the Vietnamese communists during the Vietnam War, exploring the “Hanoi Hilton”, which is the former central prison in Hanoi and an unique overnight Halong Bay Cruise, following a freshly prepared seafood lunch onboard.
