A cultural explosion, Cambodia allows you to get under the skin of the Asian culture
Cambodia’s magnificent past and recent history make it a culturally fascinating country to visit. Life in this former French colony is dominated by the Mekong River and the Tonle Sap (Great Lake) and the impressive temples at Angkor are truly awe inspiring. From the ancient rice paddies of the South to the charming colonial streets of bustling Phnom Penh, Cambodia shares a rich and vibrant culture, making it one of the most enigmatic and beautiful countries to visit in Asia.
Your holiday in Cambodia will almost certainly take you to Angkor. The artistic, architectural and cultural legacy of the Khmer Empire (9th-13th Centuries) which dominated much of South East Asia is epitomised in the ruins of the Angkor area. This truly vast archaeological site enables one to trace each stage of the fascinating history of the Khmer peoples.
Our specialists on the ground guide you expertly though the ruins, pointing out historic and cultural details and are able to organise visits to lesser known ruins hidden further into the jungle.
Elsewhere, we can help you get under the skin of Cambodia. Explore the streets of Phnom Penh on one of our architectural tours, or see the colourful markets in action. We can arrange a picnic on a deserted island or lunch overlooking the exquisite views on Bokor Mountain, a deserted hill station relic of Cambodia’s 60’s heyday. Cruise the waterways of the Tonle Sap, the main artery of life in Cambodia, or follow the Mekong River as it weaves its way to Vietnam.
All itineraries are individually designed, but as a guide, we can arrange a ten day Cambodia holiday (not including flights) from £2500 per person.
