Your day-by-day itinerary

Past and Present in Phnom Penh

Explore Phnom Penh, a city that pulses with energy, history and survival. It’s a colourful riot of sights, sounds, monks, motorbikes and tangy aromas, packed with character. During this trip, you’ll visit the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng to learn about Cambodia’s past. The following day you will sample traditional cuisine with a tour through the city’s markets and end at a brewery to sample some of the local tipples.

Sunrise in the Cardamom Mountains

Head into Cambodia’s remote and beautiful Cardamom Mountains for a rustic forest adventure to remember. It’s a window into the real Cambodia, far from the tooting horns. You’ll spend three days in the Cardamom Mountains, staying in a basic but scenic forest lodge and learning about local life. You’ll trek through the forest, take a dip in the river and take in the natural beauty of this unique area.

Escape to Castaway Island

Come over all Robinson Crusoe on this tiny pocket of tropical paradise marooned off the Cambodian coastline, with clear water, soft sand and swaying palms. You’ll spend 3 nights on Koh Rong or Koh Rong Samloem, staying in a beach bungalow or beachside resort. It’s a brilliant break from reality – trek through the jungle-thick interior or simply collapse onto the sugar-soft sand. It’s utter barefoot bliss.

Cambodia Ko Rong Long Beach

Amazing Angkor!

Get lost amongst the overgrown jungle temples and giant carved reliefs of Angkor, one of the man-made wonders of the world. During this trip, you’ll spend three days exploring the temples of Angkor, using Siem Reap as your base. You’ll learn about the ruins with a friendly local guide, but there will also be plenty of time for you to clamber between jungle temples independently.

Cambodia Angkor Watt Temple

Life on the Tonle Sap

Stay with a Khmer family in a traditional stilted house on Tonle Sap Lake and set off at sunrise with the local fisherman. You’ll spend one night with a welcoming family in Kompong Khleang, a village virtually untouched by tourism. You’ll learn about traditional Khmer cookery and join the fishermen as they sail into the lake before dawn. The accommodation is basic but the experience is rich. The dry season (Jan-Apr) means the homestay won’t be directly on the water but the experience will still be as immersive.

Speak to our Cambodia specialist, Miles

“Cambodia is full of history and beauty, from Angkor Wat to the Cardamom Mountains. You can easily explore in one week or combine with neighbouring Vietnam. I often suggest Cambodia for families as it’s easy to travel around.”
