We will watch the A O SHOW tonight. The show depicts the charming beauty and cultural richness of Vietnamese life in the countryside, in contrast with the nation’s racing urbanization.

After evening tea, we will start our walk by delving into Cambodia’s artistic past with a trip to Artisans Angkor. Launched in 1998, the organisation strives to train Cambodians in the ancient arts, which were almost wiped out during the Khmer Rouge reign, and provide local artisans with employment.
We will take a tour of their workshops in Siem Reap centre, where traditional Khmer handicraft is being undertaken in the form of stone and wood carving, lacquering, silver plating and silk painting.
One of Siem Reap’s hippest attractions comes in the form of Kandal Village, a once-gritty grid of backstreets that have had some style injected into them, thanks to the addition of a string of cool boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Home to a staggering range of galleries, presentations, videos and exhibits, it stretches back to the pre-Angkorian Funan and Chenla eras. The compact town centre means art lovers can easily squeeze in a trip to a few galleries.
Next up is a trip to the circus. Phare, the Cambodian Circus is by far one of Siem Reap’s top attractions, with ancient folktales retold on the stage through jawdropping Cirque du Solielesque performances.
After which we will head to Angkor Night Market, which stays open until the early hours and is full of bargains waiting to be bagged.
Selling everything from souvenirs and clothes, to art, knock-off DVDs and electronics, finding space in your suitcase will be your only problem.
Love it or hate it, Siem Reap’s infamous Pub Street has to be seen to be believed. Here a deafening mix of music offends the ears and bucket-swigging backpackers bounce around until the sun comes up.
DID YOU KNOW?
The Tonle Sap in Siem Reap is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. In a unique twist, twice a year, the flow of the Tonle Sap changes direction.
No trip to Siem Reap is complete without a visit to Angkor Wat, and what better way to start your day – and visit – than a 6am sunrise at the iconic archaeological masterpiece?
With Angkor Archaeological Park being the main draw, you’ll be hard pushed to find a hotel or guesthouse that doesn’t cater for temple tourists wanting to watch the sun peek from behind Angkor’s spires, with tuk tuks on stand-by and breakfast available to take with you.
Don’t expect to have the temple to yourself though, because dawn is Angkor’s busiest time, with thousands flocking around the lotus lake to the front of Angkor to get that perfect photo.
After Lunch we will head to The Cambodia Landmine Museum: Cambodia remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world as a result of decades of conflict, including a civil war, the brutal Khmer Rouge regime and genocide, American bombings, and Vietnamese occupation.
Dozens of civilians are still injured or killed every year by landmines and other unexploded ordnance that have been left over from all the fighting. Millions of the country’s landmines have now been cleared, but there is still a lot of work to be done; it is estimated Cambodia will not be entirely free of landmines for several decades to come.
The Landmine Museum works in partnership with two non-profit organizations in Cambodia: Cambodian Self-Help Demining and the Rural School Village Program. They donate a part of all the ticket and shop sales to their causes.
HEAD BACK TO PUB STREET FOR NEW YEAR'S CELEBRATION
Street vendors line the lanes of Pub Street; selling exotic tropical fruits , sweet snacks, clothes, etc and its going be an amazing New year.

Most people come alone for my trips. About 25% of the people bring a friend or partner.Honestly It really doesn’t matter. I have seen on all the batches I have lead. Most people really gel with everyone, even the ones who thought wouldn’t gel up, surprise themselves always with the way they got comfortable with everyone.
Each trek/ trip is rated according to the number of days we spend outdoors . If you aren’t sure where to start, go with an easy trip or trek.
I dreamed of trips where we could go out hike , get exhausted , come back to hotel and have a great evening. This is exactly why some of my trips have Day hikes in it. It is a perfect chance for people who have never hiked in their entire life. Don’t worry, We are there :).
You can start with Sandhakphu or Chandrashila . You can also benchmark yourself for the treks.
If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3-3.5 km , then you can go ahead with an easy trek
If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3.5-4 km , then you can go ahead with an moderate trek
If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 4-5 km , then you can go ahead with an difficult trek
If you have never done a high altitude trek, then start with a easy or Easy- moderate trek. That way you will understand how your body reacts to high altitude and you can check you cardio strength too.
Usually, most batch sizes are between 12-20 people who are aged between 16-38. Most people come alone or with a friend. The trip would feel like you are travelling more with college friends than strangers. We tend to do more outdoorsy things than regular trips .
For example : If we find a very pretty waterfall/ a beautiful sunset / Rainbow on the way. We would stop the vehicle right away to catch the beauty of it.
We usually sleep very late on these trips as we play a lot of group games and most people feel they will miss the precious time with the group members and decides to stay awake.
