Get an insider's view of Cambodia's Angkor Wat and the remote reaches of Laos in Southeast Asia.

Far Horizons Archaeological & Cultural Trips is offering a 17-day tour Jan. 7-23. Located in what now is Cambodia, Angkor Thom, capital of the flourishing Khmer empire in the 11th century, was one of the world's most densely populated cities. An incredible mass of dazzling pagodas grew up around Angkor Thom, culminating in the glory of the magnificent temple complex at Angkor Wat. With the fall of the Khmers, the temples were slowly recaptured by the lush forest and remained a hidden legend until 1861 when they were re-discovered and introduced to the western world.

Leading the tour is Damian Evans, director of the University of Sydney Robert Christie Research Centre in Siem Reap, Cambodia and deputy director of the Greater Angkor Project. Cost is $9,995 per person, double occupancy and includes international air from Los Angeles in coach; five internal flights; all hotels; meals as noted in brochure; entry fees and land transportation. Cost does not include donation of 150 per person to Heritage Watch, air fare from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, passport or visa fees, airport taxes, beverages or food not included on regular menus, laundry, excess baggage charges, gratuities to guides and drivers, alcoholic drinks or other items of a personal nature. Single supplement is $1,395.
