Ever wonder what the past thirty years has brought to this part of the planet? Well, you need not to wonder any longer! Visiting Cambodia, discover the various and distinct cultures that Cambodia has to offer. Travel though lush countryside, visit mysterious temples, experiences the vibrant, new cities. The peoples of this region are known as some of the "friendliest people on earth" and await your visit with them.

Beng Melea Temple-Sprawling jungle temple covering over one square kilometer, the temple of Beng Melea is largely overrun by vegetation and very lightly touristy, giving it an adventurous, ‘lost temple’ feel. Photographers: trees growing from the broken towers and galleries offer some of the best ‘trees in temple’ shots aside from Ta Prohm. Constructed in a distinctly Angkor Wat style under the same king that built Angkor Wat, Beng Melea preceded and may have served as a prototype of sorts for Angkor Wat. Though there are some lintel and doorway carvings, there are no bas-reliefs and the carvings are comparatively sparse. When the temple was active, the walls may have been covered, painted or had frescos. In its time, Beng Melea was at the crossroads of several major highways that ran to Angkor, Koh Ker, Preah Vihear (in northern Cambodia) and northern Vietnam.

Kampong Kleng fishing village- is located in the northern lake-edge about 35 kilometers east of Siem Reap town, more remote and fewer tourists than Kampong Pluk. Visitors to Kampong Kleang during the dry season are universally awestruck by the forest of stilted houses rising up to 10 meters in the air. In the wet season the waters rise to within one or two meters of the buildings. Like Kampong Pluk, Kampong Kleang is a permanent community based in fishing and surrounded by slooded forest.
The area can be reached by boat from the Chongkneah docks or ny a combination of road to Dom Dekon Route #6 and then boat to the village, the best method depending on the time of year.

Back to Siem Reap late afternoon, enjoy exploring the Siem Reap market or/and seeing the work shop of Artisan D’Angkor, wood and stone carvings, lacquering and silk paintings.
