Day 1: Siem Reap: Arrival  
Upon arrival at Siem Reap airport, you will be met by the local guide from Indochina Pioneer and driven (30 minutes) to your Hotel for check-in. 
If time permits we will enjoy the sunset view from the top of Phnom Bakheng Hill with a panoramic view of Western Baray and Angkor Wat. Tonight we are treated a special dinner with a traditional Apsara show at the Angkor Village resort. 
Meals included: Welcome dinner
Stay overnight in Siem Reap.
Day 2: Siem Reap – Angkor Temples  
We begin our day with a visit to the temples of King Jayavarman VII, reputedly Angkor’s greatest king. The fortified city of Angkor Thom which he had built at the end of the 12th Century is enclosed by a square wall 8 meters high, with five 20 meter long monumental gates decorated with stone elephant trunks. 
The city contains another of Angkor’s true gems – The Bayon. Not nearly as impressive as Angkor Wat from a distance, the Bayon is nevertheless incredible for its maze of corridors, gothic style towers and magical central temples with 1200 meters of the finest bas relief, depicting scenes of everyday life in 12th Century Cambodia. 
From Angkor Thom we continue to the    Phimeanakas, located in the middle of the old Royal Palace area, and to the Terrace of the Elephants and the Leper King.  
Returning to town we will enjoy lunch and a short rest, thereby avoiding the mid-day heat.
In the afternoon we continue our exploration to Ta Phrom, a temple half consumed by the Cambodian jungle and famous in the west as the film location for “Tomb Raider”. 
After that we proceed to the famous temple of Angkor Wat - the best known and most breathtaking of all the sights, and a highlight of any visit to the Angkor complex. Originally built as a funerary temple for Suryavarman ll in honor of Vishnu. This temple is unique as it faces west, symbolically the direction of death. It is a very grand and imposing structure, but its most stunning feature is the extensive and intricately carved bas reliefs, which stretch throughout the galleries and inner temples.  
Late afternoon we enjoy sunset over the Angkor Wat temples, if we did not see this on the arrival day.
The evening is free for you explore the night life of Siem Reap on your own. 
Meals included: Breakfast, lunch
Overnight in Siem Reap
Day 3: Siem Reap – Banteay Srei - Banteay Kdei 
In the morning we enjoy a guided tour to Banteay Srei with the most stunning carved lintels at Angkor and Banteay Samre, a fortified temple built by Suryavarman II and located far away from the normal temple crowds. 
In the afternoon we visit the exquisite Prasat Kravan. The sanctuary's interiors are remarkable for the large bas-relief depictions of Vishnu and Lakshmi that have been carved into the walls of reddish brick, connected by a vegetable compound.  The tour also includes the Neak Poan, an artificial circular island with a Buddhist temple built on it, in Preah Khan Baray. This was built during the reign of King Jayavarman VII. and originally designed for medical purposes (the ancients believed that going into these pools would balance the elements in the bather, thus curing disease); it is one of the many hospitals that Jayavarman VII built. The site was built in the second half of the 12th century, according to tradition, on a spot where the King fought a crucial battle against the Cham. 
After returning to the hotel the rest of your day is free at leisure.

This half-day tour on vintage Vespa motor scooters (you will be driven by professional drivers) will give us a unique look at familiar and not-so-familiar landmarks in modern-day Ho Chi Minh City, to reveal the city’s culture, architecture, religious practices and fascinating history. The tour begins in the cool early morning with a pickup at our hotel. Our first stop is Tao Dan Park to catch the bird lovers club (morning only, 0600 – 0900), then enjoy a local coffee while our tour guide explains the history and practice of keeping birds in Saigon.
The next stop is the Monument of Thich Quang Duc, a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death on June 11, 1963 to protest against the persecution of Buddhists by South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem administration.
Then we will take a quick stop at the colorful Ho Thi Ky flower market before riding to a Funeral Home to learn about Vietnamese funeral ceremonies & customs.
Next we drive through Chinatown to Nhi Phu temple built in the end of 17th century by Chinese immigrants from Fukkien Province. Although the exact construction date is unknown, an inscription on the pagoda's ancient bell dates the pagoda to pre-1765. Nhi Phu Temple is built in a “Khẩu” (gate) architectural style with an open yard in the center. Its roof is covered with tubular tiles with lines of   bas-relief mosaics, depicting the eight immortals of Taoism including apricot trees, orchids, bamboo and, of course, dragons and phoenix.
We continue with a short walk through the alley full of tailor’s supplies. Then back to Nhi Phu temple to return to district one by bike. On the way stop at a Chinese Medicine shop to hear about Thuốc Bắc medicine from herbs or Thuốc tàu – a medicine from China.”
Leaving Chinatown, we drive through the tunnel to District 2 where we see downtown Saigon from a different perspective viewing the developing Ho Chi Minh City.
We visit a local market before heading back to District 1 to see two beautiful neighboring landmarks: the General
Post Office (G.P.O), noted for its neoclassical architecture, designed and constructed by the famous architect Gustave Eiffel, in harmony with the surrounding area. This is followed by a visit to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral (“Our Lady”). Notre Dame Cathedral is considered to be one of the main city attractions and one of the most beautiful buildings in all Vietnam. It was built in 1877 - 1880 by the French architect Bourad.

A stop at the historic Opera House built in 1880 (now the Municipal Theatre) lets us talk about the history the square represents from the time it was the main road into the Bat Quay, to the French invasion, to the filming of  “The Quiet American”.
The final stop is an outside view of HCM City People’s Committee (formerly Hôtel de Ville) built in 1902-1908, and is one of the most photographed buildings in Vietnam - notable for its gardens, ornate facade and elegant interior lit with crystal chandeliers.
Lunch will be served in a local Vietnamese restaurant. Returning to the hotel around mid-day the rest of your day is free.

This type of hotel usually provides full service accommodation with personal attention. The atmosphere is unique. The term "atmosphere" comprises of decor, ambience, personalized service, mind-set of hotel staff, and most importantly a know-how of how all of these things come together to create a perfect stay.   
Boutique & character hotels are good for business, honeymoon, or vacation.
