Cambodia promises to be one of the most mesmerising experiences of your life.
Much of Cambodia remains refreshingly untouched by tourism, brimming with legendary temples, historical treasures and glorious beaches.
Evidence of French colonialism can be seen in the captivating Phnom Penh, where broad tree-lined boulevards and colonial architecture provide an attractive backdrop to the colourful markets, bustling riverfront and roadside food vendors. Despite their troubled past, the people of Cambodia have turned their nation into something beautiful - their hope and kindness shines through their singing, dancing and exceptional hospitality, and nothing demonstrates this more than the reawakened capital of Phnom Penh.
We can show you the magnificent legacy of the Khmer Empire, arguably the highlight of any visit to Cambodia, most notably the incredible temple complex Angkor Wat, which was built to replicate the heavens on earth and is the world’s largest religious monument. The city of Angkor was the largest pre-industrial city in the world, and as such is home to some of the most beautiful temples and architecture, with Angkor Thom being a must see when you visit this ancient city. We’d advise you to hire a tuk tuk for the day whilst you’re exploring, a safe alternative to hiring a bicycle, and much more convenient, the driver may even act as your tour guide for the day too! The ancient ruins are the perfect backdrop for a sunset, and we can help you to time your visit to capture to sun going down.
Within easy reach of Siem Reap are the fascinating string of floating villages and stilted houses on Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. Here we can give you the wonderful opportunity to join a cruise of the lake to catch a glimpse of the fishermen at work, the children playing by the shore and the wide variety of wildlife, colourful birds and plants that inhibit the mangroves.
Situated between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh is Battambang. Known for its striking colonial architecture and contemporary arts scene, it’s also the departure point of the Bamboo ‘Train’. Set up by villagers to transport themselves and their goods, you can join this very basic train for a highly recommended short journey through breathtaking landscapes and rice paddies to a local village.
What better way to conclude an exhilarating tour of cultural delights that with time to unwind on Cambodia’s southern shores? Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s premier beach resort and easily accessible from Siem Reap by air, or from Phnom Penh by road. Surrounded by tropical beaches and undeveloped islands, it is an enchanting paradise, with the sea effortlessly losing itself into the sky.
Kep, which was founded as a retreat for the French elite in 1908, also has a beautifully tranquil atmosphere. Why not relax on its sun-dappled beaches, enjoying the exquisite seafood it has to offer.
