It’s also called S-21 (abbreviated for Security Office 21), a Khmer Rouge's premier security camp, specifically designed for the interrogation and extermination of anti-Angkor elements. Leave the relics of the bad history of Cambodia we will have lunch before going shopping around Russian market, enjoy the bustling daily activities of the locals.

Breakfast at hotel, let’s lend a paw at the largest Sun Bear sanctuary in the world while being a bear keeper for the day. This program is conducted at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre 40kms outside Phnom Penh. You will get to go behind the scenes to see what it takes to care for more than 100 rescued bears on a daily basis while working alongside their keepers to prepare special treats to keep the bears happy and healthy in their forested sanctuary.  Best of all, by taking part in this unique experience you will know that you have contributed directly towards helping care for hundreds of bears and other animals rescued from the wildlife trade. 
Note: We will help the keepers prepare enrichment toys for the bears and hide foods in the bear’s enclosures. Direct contact with the bears is not allowed under any circumstances, as these bears are rescued wild animals and the centre wants them to live as natural as possible. 
This afternoon, return to town and stop to visit Tonle Bati Lake, a popular weekend destination for the local people. It is also a popular fishing spot for both tourists and people who live locally. We then visit the nearby small picturesque Angkorian temple of Ta Prohm, the Bayon-style temple built in the late 12th century and left in much the same condition in which it was founded - unlike most of the Angkorian ruins.

The plan of the pyramidal conception of the temple combined with spaces, alleys, ditches is an ancient masterpiece of architectural design and construction. Overnight in Siem Reap.

After breakfast, we visit Small Circuit including: visit Ta Prohm temple which is a wonderful combination of human genius and natural beauty. Giant trees have grown here for centuries and Prasat Kravan was originally constructed by noblemen rather than a king. Banteay Kdei was built in sandstone, which has deteriorated quite badly. However, there remain some very beautiful lintels and pediments. Srah Srang is a royal pool was the King's bathing pond, where he washed with his many concubines each day.  Takeo - King Suryavarman I commissioned this temple in the 10th Century, but it was never completed so has no elaborate decoration like its contemporaries.
