Day 1 – Sambor Prei Kuk
We will leave Siem Reap at 9am and follow the national road number 6. After about one hour drive, we will stop near the village of Kompong Kdei to see an old bridge of the Angkorean Era. 

Phra Phutthos, better know as Kompong Kdei bridge because of its vicinity with the city of the same name, was constructed at the end of the 12th century during the reign of Jayavarman VII. This is an imposant stone structure with more than twenty narrow arches spanning 75 meters. Receiving few visitors, Phra Phutthos is notwithstanding the longest corbeled stone-arch bridge in the world and really worth the detour! After the visit, we will drive you back to your hotel.
Then, we will continue to Kompong Thom where we will have lunch.
After lunch, we will drive about 45 minutes to Sambor Prei Kuk. Sambor Prei Kuk is the setting of the most impressive group of pre-Angkorian monuments anywhere in Cambodia. There are more than 100 small temples, scattered through the forest. Originally called Isanapura, Sambor Prei Kuk was the capital of the Kingdom of Chenla during the reign of the early-7th century king Isanavarman. This city continued to be an important centre of scholarship during the Angkorian period.

Day 2 – Preah Khan
Early in the morning, we will drive about 3 hours to the North. We will visit the temples of Preah Khan, also know as Prasat Bakan. This temples complex was probably built during the ninth century, originally for Hindu worship, it was later transformed into a Mahayana Buddhist centre. At some point, Preah Khan was home to the prestigious kings Suryavarman II and Jayavarman VII, the latter probably took refuge in this city during the Cham invasion. This laterite and sandstone complex was probably the second biggest city of the Khmer Empire as it covers an area of 5 square kilometres and comprises a huge 3 km long baray. This is one of the most remote temple of Cambodia and when exploring the temples you will have a real feel of being lost in the middle of nowhere.
After a picnic lunch near the temples, we will drive back to Kompong Thom and then Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. We will arrive at about 7pm and we will bring you at the hotel of your choice. End Kampong thom Day Tour
