This morning you will awaken to delightful views of rural Cambodia and rice paddies stretching off into the distance. If you wish you can return to the temple and bask in the solitude of a lonely temple sunrise. After a local breakfast there is the opportunity to learn more about village life as you experience an ox-cart ride and visit the rice fields, drop-in on the village bee-keeper, stroll around the grounds of the village pagoda, and visit a local organisation that is helping to revive the silk weaving industry. Depending on the time of year you may also wish to assist your host family with their farm activities. You will have a picnic lunch overlooking a large lake where you can spot various birdlife. After lunch you will bid farewell to Banteay Chhmar's local community and head off towards Siem Reap. However, before travelling too far you will stop off at Banteay Top, another wonderful and remote ancient temple. Close to Siem Reap you reach the village of Puok which is home to the Artisans d’Angkor Silk Farm. Here you will witness the entire silk production process, from the silk worm munching on the Mulberry leaves, to spinning their cocoons, the cocoons being harvested and turned into silk thread, women weaving, and of course the beautiful finished silk products, which you can purchase at the on-site boutique, a wonderful souvenir of Cambodia. On arrival in Siem Reap you will be dropped-off at your hotel
