The empty silence, made of the Cambodian Nature’s ringing sounds, echoes through the rooms of the lost and decadent temples of Angkor Wat. While walking around its architectures in a suspended moment, you’re going to be surrounded by the atmosphere of past. Like a modern Aeneas or Ulysses, your journey is starting. A treasure hunt worthy of all the fatigue, to find the five fallen wonders hidden in the jungle.

Your treasure hunt will start a few minutes after 4 o’clock in the morning. At that time, enveloped in the night, you will rise on your buzzing tuk-tuk. Your Cambodian Sibilla will drive quickly through the sleepy streets of Siem Reap, and, at a certain point, she will leave you alone on the side of a deep moat. In front of you, just darkness and a rickety bridge. But never mind. The sound of Nature emerging from the night will win the fear of the unknown.

Step by step, you will reach a big field near to a cosy lake, both waiting for the sunrise as well as you are. In fact, only those who are able to wait will see the transformation of a dark shade into a breathtaking monumental complex. This impressive architecture, devoted to Hinduism, proudly stands in the pink light of sunrise. You will be charmed by a unique scene that reoccurs every day at the same time, always and forever enamouring travellers from all around the world.
