We are a family of four with two girls aged 9 and 5, planning a trip to SR in December. We're not too keen on spending days on end looking at temples, so I'm trying to figure out whether 8 days is too long. We're flying Jetstar which has flights every couple of days, so it's either 5 days or 8 days.
This is what I've got so far:
Day 1, Sunday
Fly to Siem Reap
Pickup and check in to Bloom Garden Guesthouse
Rest of day at leisure, maybe Angkor Night Market
Day 2, Monday
Angkor Wat – full day
Day 3, Tuesday
Banteay Srei, Ta Phrom, Butterfly Centre
Day 4, Wednesday
Full day tour of Chong Khneas & the Great Tonle Sap Lake, Kompong Phluk
Day 5, Thursday
Day in the Life village tour
Day 6, Friday
Happy Ranch Horse Farm trail ride
Visit ACODO Orphanage for evening dance
Day 7, Saturday
Bang Melea, incense factory
Day 8, Sunday
Check out and fly home.
How does my itinerary look? Appreciate all comments.
