Through the early morning haze that rolls past the jungle border of the Siem Reap River, Angkor Wat rises out of the distance, a towering and sprawling mass of turrets and temple walls that can't help but inspire anything but wide-eyed reverence. And with this nine-day, seven-night Escape to Cambodia courtesy of Globotours, you'll get an insider's look into this Southeast Asian kingdom that remains, in many respects, frozen in time.

"The traveller's first glimpse of Angkor Wat, the ultimate expression of Khmer genius, is sublime and is matched by only a few select spots on earth, such as Machu Picchu or Petra," says Lonely Planet. "Thanks to a history both inspiring and depressing, Cambodia delivers an intoxicating present for adventurous visitors."

Start your sojourn with a flight from LAX, SFO, IAD, JFK, or ATL on select dates* and touch down in Phnom Penh, the "Pearl of Asia" and Cambodia's capital. All round-trip economy-class flights, round-trip ground transportation between airports, all hotels, sightseeing destinations, and daily American buffet breakfast are included for one guest based on double occupancy.

Take a tuk tuk from the airport to four-star Sunway Hotel or La Rose Boutique & Spa Hotel in Phnom Penh, where you'll settle into a deluxe room or similar accommodations within the city's upscale greenbelt, just down the block from the stunning Wat Phnom Pagoda. Make the Silver Pagoda, National Museum, the Royal Palace, and the Russian Market your next stops before a sunset cruise down the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers.

An asphalt road and a two-lane bridge across the Mekong carry you to Kompong Cham, which is bursting with French colonial architecture and floating villages. Wat Nokhor's 12th-century temple and modern-style pagoda are on the way to Kompong Thom, a province profuse with Angkorian religious buildings. There you'll stay in Sambor Village Hotel, which merges traditional structures with modern amenities: high-beamed ceilings, stilt bungalows, unfurling gardens, and antique basins.

Your journey takes you northeast toward Sambor Prei Kuk, passing through the ancient capital of Chenla, where you'll run across more than 100 temples intoning sentiments of Hinduism, Buddhism, and indigenous ancestor sects. Cross an ancient Naga Bridge said to connect the world of gods and men to Siem Reap where Khmer-style roofs, temple statuaries, and a garden with pears await you at Khemara Angkor Hotel.

Glimpse images of feminine dieties not oft-sculpted at Bantey Kdei. Stand on the precipice of where a temple once floated at the Lake of Srah Srang, and then tease the elusive Ta Prohm Temple from the dense clutches of the jungle before witnessing Cambodia's crown jewel: Angkor Wat, one of the world's seven wonders boasting 54 jaw-dropping towers.

  • "Revitalized [Angkor] is finally earning plaudits in its own right thanks to a gorgeous river-side location, a cultural renaissance, and a wining-and-dining scene to rival anywhere in the region."
