Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Sihanoukville

Sihanoukville

Sihanoukville is the premier beach destination in Cambodia for tourists and Cambodians alike, with golden white sands, tropical islands and mangrove jungles. A relatively new city, it sprang to life in 1955 with the construction of the only deep-sea port of a newly independent Cambodia. With the bay of Thailand surrounding it on three sides, Sihanoukville was named in honour of the former King Norodom Sihanouk in 1964. View more

As Cambodia descended into civil war the town fell on hard times with the Khmer Rouge using the famous Independence Hotel for target practice. In 1993 peace returned to Cambodia and since then Sihanoukville has been slowly rebuilding itself. Today it attracts Asian Individual travellers, young students and back-packers but after decades of war and upheaval the town’s infrastructure is still very much in its infancy. A visit to Ream National Park offers pristine mangrove forests rich in wildlife with miles of beaches unmarked by footprints.

Mid Voyage Land Adventure: Angkor Wat!

Once the capital of the Khmer Empire from 800 AD to approximately 1200, Angkor spreads out over an area of about 40 miles (63 km). The city and its famous temples were abandoned in the early 15th century and remained unknown to the outside world until 1860, when a French botanist stumbled upon them in the jungle overgrowth. Today, travellers flock to Angkor to see this spectacular temple city, rated among the world's premier architectural sites and since 1992 on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Your Mid-Voyage Land Adventure concludes on Day four with a short visit to Da Nang and Hoi An.

DAY TWO - Siem Reap

Begin your day with the drive to the Angkor site to visit Angkor Temple. Angkor Wat is the most famous of the Angkor sites and the largest Buddhist monument ever built. It spans an area of 500 acres (202 hectares), and is surrounded by a 660-foot-wide (201-meter-wide) moat. The construction required some 385,000 workers and 40,000 elephants over a 35-year period. The site remained covered by dense jungle growth until the late-19th century, when French archaeologists began a long restoration process. While some sections are still in ruins, others are used for worship and are occupied by Buddhist monks.


Entrance to this majestic and vast complex is via a long causeway across the moat. Then begin your exploration with a guided walking tour through corridors and courtyards. The walls are covered with bas-reliefs featuring battle scenes, dancing deities and visions of punishment in hell and rewards in paradise. The temple's central building is three stories high and accessible via a steep staircase (only recommended for very fit and agile guests).


With the vision of Angkor Wat uppermost in your mind return to the hotel for lunch and check-out.


This afternoon's activities begin with a visit to Angkor Thom, the former capital of the Khmer Empire. King Jayavarman VII established Angkor Thom in the late-12th century. It spans 3.5 square miles (9.065 square km), and features 25-foot-high (7.6-metres-high) gates at each of the cardinal points.


After entering via the narrow South Gate, proceed to Angkor Thom's most significant sites, including the Terrace of Elephants and the Leper King, representing one of Angkor's many mysteries.


Continue on to Ta Phrom. The temple is reached via a footpath through the forest and your first glimpse is of an extraordinary sight. The invading jungle-like growth has been left in place. Serpentine trunks of towering fig trees wind around the temple ruins, across walls and through doorways, creating an incredible atmosphere. Ta Phrom is also featured in scenes of Angelina Jolie's movie, Tomb Raider.



Dinner this evening is enhanced by a performance of Khmer entertainment. Depending on the number of guests at the Sokkha Hotel, the dinner/entertainment may be at a local club outside of the hotel and not within the hotel grounds.

Overnight accommodation is at the Sokha Angkor Hotel - Siem Reap



DAY THREE - Siem Reap/ Da Nang

An early breakfast at the hotel will help to start your day. You will be transferred to Wat Thmei an active monastery where you can understand more about Cambodia's tragic history since this now relatively built up area of town was formerly a site of killing fields in Siem Reap you will find a small memorial stupa which contains the skulls and bones of victims killed during the regime of the Khmer Rouge during 1975 - 1979. Continue to visiting Artisans Angkor is sponsored by the European program REPLIC and is also supported by the government of Cambodia. See the work of the trainees who learn the art of stone carving, wood ornamental sculpture, the making of small furniture, the art of lacquer and polychromy.

Statues, remnants from the great temples themselves as well as artifacts depict all manner of social customs throughout the evolution of the unique Khmer civilization. (Please note that photography is prohibited in some sections of the museum.)


After the visit you are transferred to the airport for 1 hour flight to Da Nang.


Upon arrival there, a transfer coach will take you to the Grand Mercure hotel in Da Nang for check in procedures, dinner and overnight.


Dinner this evening is served at the hotel.



DAY FOUR - Da Nang/ Hoi An/Chan May


An early breakfast at the hotel will help to start your day. Meet your guide and continue on for a visit to the Cham Museum, a rather primitive yet altogether charming museum boasting an extensive array of Cham artifacts. The museum's more than 300 pieces are displayed outdoors, which proves to be an appropriate space for its collection of temple decorations and sandstone sculptures. The exhibits represent four time periods and are named after the geographic regions where the pieces were found.


Your next destination is Hoi An, a pretty river town that has earned a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. From your stop at the Hoi An Square, launch a fascinating walking tour along its colorful streets, which have remained largely unchanged for centuries. Highlights of your visit include an exploration of the Hoi An Museum and a stop at a traditional merchant house. Also see the Phuoc Kien Temple, a structure built in honor of Thien Hau, the goddess of the sea.


Perhaps one of the most intriguing and beautiful of Hoi An's sights is the Japanese covered bridge. Built in 1593 over a stream, it is a wonderful amalgamation of Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese architectural characteristics. Appropriately, it connects Hoi An's Japanese and Chinese districts. At the center of the bridge stands a small temple.


Return to your coach and proceed to a local restaurant for lunch.


On the return journey to the pier in Chan May port where the ship docks, pause to take photographs at Marble Mountain, the famous collection of five marble and limestone formations that take the shape of a dragon at rest.
