Introduction

The combination of playing golf in the shadow of one of the stellar attractions of Asia, the temples of Angkor, is proving a temptation too good to pass up for many golf enthusiasts. Siem Reap is the gateway to this archaeological wonder and has emerged as a destination in its own right with sophisticated restaurants and top quality hotels. Whilst the majestic Angkor Wat, the mysterious faces of the Bayon and a myriad of other temples will prove more than an engaging distraction, the world class golf courses at both the Phokeethra Country Club and the Angkor Golf Resort, a signature course designed by Nick Faldo, will lure the golfer into enjoying a challenging round or two at these beautifully presented newcomers on the international golf.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Siem Reap. Visit Roluos group {B}

Upon arrival Siem Reap airport, you will be warmly welcome by one of our professional tour guide who will bring you to check in hotel. In the afternoon, we travel back in time to one of the earliest capitals in the Angkor area, Hariharilaya, now known as Roluos. We begin with a visit to the brick temple of Lolei, originally set on an island in the Centre of the Indratataka baray (reservoir). We continue to Preah Ko (sacred cow), named in honour of Shiva’s mount, Nandin. Finally, we encounter Bakong, the earliest of the Temple Mountains, which later became the signature of Khmer kings. It is a giant pyramid, its cardinal points marked by giant elephants. For those that are interested, we can offer a short diversion to the small country town of Roluos, a world away from Siem Reap. Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 2: Ta Prohm Dawn, Banteay Srei and Preah Khan {B}

We travel to Ta Prohm has been abandoned to the elements, left as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhot in 1860, the tentacle-like tree roots here are slowly strangling the surviving stones. We head to Banteay Srei, Angkor’s ultimate art gallery. This petite pink temple is the jewel in the crown of Angkor-era sculpture. The elaborate carvings here are the finest found in Cambodia and the name translates as ‘Fortress of the Women’, thanks to the intricate detail here, considered too fine for the hands of a man. In the afternoon, we travel to the mighty temple of Preah Khan or 'Sacred Sword', built by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th century. We then continue on to the elegant curves of Neak Poan. This petite temple is the ultimate ornamental fountain, its series of elaborate spouts including the heads of lions and elephants. We finish by experiencing sunset over the rice fields from the royal crematorium of Pre Rup, a classic view of the Cambodian countryside. Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 3: Golf at Sofitel Phokheetra {B}

Everyone is talking about the brand new world class golf course at the Phokeethra Country Club, so make sure you enjoy a round at this par-72, 18-hole course that includes the par-5 18th hole, at a challenging 582 yards. The course stages the first Cambodian Open tournament in November 2007 and proudly boasts, “Tee-off in the 11th century and finish your round back in the 21st century”. The Phokeethra clubhouse affords vistas overlooking the entire landscape of the course and within the grounds, the magnificent ‘Roluh’ bridge, and dates back to the time of the Khmer Empire. Located less than 20km from Siem Reap, the picturesque course stretches 7,145 yards. It has sweeping, tree-lined fairways and generous greens, though the natural lakes and water hazards, fast greens, and tricky bunkers will challenge golfers of all abilities. Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 4: Free Morning. Afternoon at Walled City of Angkor Thom {B}

Morning is free at your own leisure. In the afternoon, we visit the immense walled city of Angkor Thom that was the masterpiece of King Jayavarman VII. The scale is simply staggering and we are immediately overwhelmed by the audacity of Jayavarman on arrival at the city’s gates. We begin our visit at the Terrace of the Leper King, continue along the Terrace of Elephants, and visit the Baphuon, once of the most beautiful temples at Angkor, dating from the 11th century. It has undergone a massive renovation by the French and is now once again open for viewing. Our climax is the enigmatic and enchanting temple of the Bayon. Its 54 towers are each topped off with the four faces of Avalokiteshvara (Buddha of Compassion), which bear more than a passing resemblance to the king himself. Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 5: Golf on the Nick Faldo Course at the Angkor Golf Resort {B}

For the golfing enthusiast, the brand new ‘Faldo Course’ at the Angkor Golf Resort, is a definite starting place to tee-off your round in Cambodia. The country’s first PGA standard championship golf course, its 7,230-yards, it offers a tough test on a course designed by Europe’s greatest golfer and winner of 6 Majors in his illustrious career, Nick Faldo. The course features generous fairways, a bold bunkering style, and greens with plenty of subtle undulations that not only encourage but reward a variety of approach shots. It’s within easy reach of the city centre, so why not sign-up for a round of golf in the shadow one of the world’s greatest monuments on a course designed by one of the world’s greatest players. Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 6: Angkor Wat. Visit to Floating Village of Chong Kneas {B}

We journey out to the Mother of all temples, Angkor Wat. Believed to be the world's largest religious building, this temple is the perfect fusion of symbolism and symmetry and a source of pride and strength to all Khmers. Built in the 12th century by King Suryavarman II, this is most famous temple at Angkor. We stay at Angkor Wat to enjoy a picnic breakfast. As the crowds return to their hotels, we venture into Angkor Wat to enjoy its magnificence in peace and quiet, beginning at the bas-reliefs that tell of tales from Hindu mythology and of the glories of the Khmer empire. In afternoon, we travel out to the mighty Tonle Sap Lake to visit the floating village of Chong Kneas. Nestled under the hill of Phnom Krom, this floating community moves location with the waters of the lake. Everything floats on water in this living fishing community and if interested, we can also make a stop at the Gecko Environment Centre to learn more about the lake. Overnight in Siem Reap
