WHY TRAVEL CAMBODIA WITH US?
Sleepy local villages, bustling cafés and colourful markets.
Cambodia is Indochina’s rising star. Its beaches are as beautiful, wilds as rugged, cuisine as laudable and temples as awesome as those of neighbouring Thailand and Vietnam, meaning it has all the pre-requisites for a stunning, scintillating visit. And yet it’s still so far off the beaten track you’ll be thinking you’ve got it all to yourself. There’s a plethora of memorable experiences for visitors: fascinating Khmer culture and absorbing cities. There is very little that can beat the sunrise or sunset here… apart from, perhaps, seeing it all from a hot-air balloon. At its feet are tropical islands with idyllic waters, white sand beaches and interesting fishing villages.

OUR TOP 3
If we were asked to choose our top three places in Cambodia, we’d go for these.
One of the world’s archaeological marvels – the great Temples of Angkor.
We feel experiencing Angkor is more about enjoying the diverse environment and richness of these sites according to your interests, rather than working through a checklist of ‘must see’ monuments. The prospective traveller might be forgiven for thinking that this is the extent of what Siem Reap has to offer, when in fact it is but one of the many uniquely Cambodian treasures found in the town’s confines. One can spend an afternoon cruising over the Tonle Sap Lake between the stilted residences of floating villages, visiting the Phare circus to see local talents outperform Cirque du Soleil or take in the beautiful local textile traditions on display at Les Chantiers Écoles.
Charming small-town meets old French colonial.
Phnom Penh truly has something for everyone; the young in search of electric nightlife, historians intent on discovering the country’s rich past, architects looking to uncover Khmer, French colonial and Chinese buildings, photographers in search of the best Mekong sunrise shot and everything in between. The riverside also abounds with delicious local eateries, from popular ice-cream store Blue Pumpkin to casual restaurant Oskar Bistro and trendy Chinese House. For the more spiritually inclined, a dip into one of the local pagodas to witness and partake in meditation alongside local worshippers makes for a special experience.
Jungle life, Beach life and everything in between.
Surrounded by lush jungle and the sound of surf breaks, wind down on the sands of Cambodia’s islands. The perfect hideaway in the Gulf of Thailand, the southern islands of Cambodia are home to all things slow, sustainable, and creative. We adore the beaches here, where aquamarine sea meets either chalk-white sand, craggy rocks, or emerald green jungle. In our opinion, each of the islands are akin to outdoor playgrounds: perfect for those with an adventurous spirit, as well as those who want to simply recline and relax on the shore under the cool shade of fluttering palm trees.
