key experiences 

Phnom Penh

The capital of Cambodia is a bustling commercial city, but one with an attractive cafe culture and a world-class food scene.  Add in sites such as the Royal Palace and the Killing Fields and you have a city unique in the world.


Angkor Temple Complex

Unmatched on our planet for its size and feeling of mystery, the Temples of Angkor consist of over 1000 temples covering an area of as many square kilometres (370 sq miles).  An experience all of its own, you will need at least two days to get to know the place.


Tonlé Sap

Whether you are on this massive lake for a few hours or a few days, you will discover a different side of Cambodia as you explore homes and shops perilously perched on stilts in the middle of the lake.


Battambang

While the town has a nice riverside setting and some laid-back cafes, it is in the surrounding countryside that you will find forgotten temples and timeless villages.


Kampot

This relaxed town makes for a great base to explore neighbouring villages and nearby Bokor National Park, a haven for wildlife and birds.

Koh Russey and Krabey

Sihanoukville has changed from a lovely beachside town to gambling and industrial  centre and none of the beaches are pleasant anymore.  So you will need to look elsewhere to find your paradise.  For those wanting to stay in Cambodia, try the islands of Koh Russey or Krabey.


Stung Treng

Located in the east of the country, Stung Treng is a good base from which to discover the surrounding area on foot or by kayak.  Paddle through spectacular flooded forests, see Irrawaddy Dolphins and hike up to the famous Sopheak Mitt waterfall.

Bike like a local

Saddle up and follow the highways and byways of this beautiful country.  Cycling is still the transportation of choice for many locals and you and them will delight in each other's company.


Riverside promenade

Join throngs of locals and enjoy an ice cream or some street food as you stroll along the riverside promenade in Phnom Penh.


Village home stay

A home stay in Cambodia is a great way to learn more about local life.  Be welcomed by your hosts, explore the village, markets and roadways and enjoy some delicious food.


Glorious food

Cambodia is well known for its delicious food and nowhere will it be fresher than from a streetside stall.


Sunset at Angkor

Watch the temples of Angkor light up in the soft light of the evening sun - a photographer's dream.


Get off the beaten track

Take a bicycle or motorbike taxi and explore hidden byways.  Enjoy chatting with the people you meet and see children running after you, acting as if you are the first tourist they have ever seen.


Cooking class

Accompany a Cambodian chef to the market, shop for fresh ingredients and try your hand at some of the best recipes this country has to offer.  Then, feast on your own creations!


Take a ride on the wild side

Hail a motorbike taxi, hop on the back and hold on for dear life as you speed through traffic en-route to your next destination.


The Killing Fields & Tuol Sleng prison

Not for the faint-of-heart, a visit to the former Khmer Rouge prison and the Killing Fields in Phnom Penh are a must for anyone wanting to understand the recent horrific history of this beautiful country.
