Imagine yourself walking through the shadowy halls of the largest religious structure in the world with our extraordinary Cambodia tours. These temples at the heart of the empire give an inkling of the prosperous golden age of the Khmers.

The nation combines wide open plains, great rivers, mountains, and gorgeous Gulf of Thailand beaches. That’s before you meet any of the 16 million smiling locals who call the largely rural country home.

Phnom Penh is an excellent spot to kick off your Cambodia vacation packages. Stroll the riverfront with cultural sights, museums, rooftop bars, and restaurants. The capital blends the ancient and contemporary for a timeless experience

The Cardamom Mountains stretch for 100 miles through the southwest. The mighty Mekong meanders through the east, and you can still spot rare freshwater Irrawaddy dolphins near Kratie.

Top points of interest in Cambodia


It’s a relatively small country, but trips to Cambodia offer some heavy-hitting attractions. We assess a few of the most popular destinations below.

Angkor Wat


Just north of the modern city of Siem Riep lies an incredible Buddhist stone construction dating to the golden age of the Khmers. Angkor was the capital, and at the center of its 390 mile² (1,000 km²) urban sprawl lies the world’s largest religious monument.

Over a thousand temples litter the region, a huge draw for our Cambodia tours. The epic sunrise at Angkor Wat and the mesmerizing faces of Bayon in 13th century Angkor Thom attracts two million annual visitors.

Restoration offers clues of a vibrant city and lifestyle from the 9th to the 15th century. The Khmers dominated SE Asia until the Ayutthaya sacked Angkor in 1431, forcing the populace south.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it boasts a complicated water management system and elaborate infrastructure. The largest preindustrial city, up to a million people may have lived here.

Since then, nature has reclaimed Ta Prohm or the “jungle temple.” The enormous roots of fig, banyan, and kapok trees have made a home on the stones. 

Phnom Penh


At the confluence of the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers, the capital is chaotic but captivating. It combines epic artistry, unruly traffic, and a cavernous art deco central market. It’s a great place to start your Cambodia vacation.

Head first for the iconic and tranquil Royal Palace near the waterfront. It features a revered Buddhist temple called the Silver Pagoda, inlaid with five tonnes of silver tiles. It houses the iconic Emerald Buddha.

Discover the treasures of the National Museum for an idea of the grandeur of the empire. After shopping, museums, and art galleries, stroll along Sisowath Quay at sunset. The bars and restaurants present excellent people-watching potential.

Visit the Independence Monument, located in the city center. A proud symbol of Cambodia’s independence from France. Popular among locals and tourists. Its lotus shape is indicative of Khmer architecture. 

Siem Reap


Siem Reap lures vast numbers to its spectacular temple complex. It’s not the only reason to visit the second city, though, with several attractions and activities on Cambodia multi-day tours. 

Rehydrate after a long warm day in the Angkor Archeological Park with a few beverages on the buzzing Pub street in the French Quarter. Check out the night market with local handicrafts, jewelry, and bags.

Some venture to one of the Tonle Sap floating villages, where the locals live in houses on stilts. Others prefer to pamper themselves with relaxing massages or tasty typical Khmer cuisines like steamed coconut fish or grilled pork with broken rice.

The Landmine Museum offers insight into how landmines work. Discover the impact these explosive devices had on the local community. Take a break from the temples with a zipline tour through the jungle, catch an Apsara dance show, or shop till you drop at the Old Market. 

Consider Siem Reap for Cambodia adventure tours, as it offers quad-biking, 4X4 trips through the countryside, and cycling tours. 

Sihanoukville


In the south on the Gulf of Thailand, Sihanoukville offers stunning sand beaches and happening nightlife. It's also known as Kampong Som, and activities center on warm waters with kitesurfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and boat charters.

There are also a few offshore tropical islands whose isolation forges the Robinson Crusoe effect. Named after the former king Norodom Sihanouk, you can visit the southern center of trade, transport, commerce, and tourism on our Cambodia escorted tours.

In recent years, the demographics have changed. There are several new casinos attracting mass Chinese tourism with Mandarin signage. There are lagoons and mangroves to explore, and the local fresh seafood is epic

Cambodia: Off the Beaten Track


Our tour guides present a combination of the most compelling sights and some hidden gems, offering a truly unique experience. Remember, you’ll have some free time to explore alone, so do some research to make the most of your visit.

Cambodia off the beaten track introduces an eclectic town famed for its pepper boom and salt fields. Kampot still boasts many buildings dating from the French colonial period, like the Governor's Mansion and the nearby Bokor Hill Station.

The Bokor National Park displays awe-inspiring mountains and ruins mixed with fantastic biodiversity. Black bears, sun bears, clouded leopards, gibbons, and pangolins call this immense reserve home.

Spot the Irrawaddy dolphins around Kratie or cruise the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia. East of the Mekong, the distant highlands of Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri provinces offer trekking, wildlife, and spectacular waterfalls.

More information about Cambodia

In a Cambodia vacation package, you can truly embrace the magic of Southeast Asia; it’s a brilliant adventure travel destination, filled to the brim with enchanting temples, idyllic beaches, and opportunities to immerse yourself in the country’s unique and colorful culture. 

The legacy of the mighty and long-lived Khmer Empire is alive in the bucket-list Angkor Wat Complex, an unmissable stop on a tour of Cambodia, whilst the modernity of the cities such as Siem Reap and Phnom Penh offers the traveler all the usual hustle and bustle of Asia, plus excellent cuisine and cosmopolitan culture. 

Located in the southern part of the Indochina peninsulaCambodia shares borders with Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand, making it the perfect destination for a multi-center tour to Southeast Asia. A majority Buddhist country, it is home to approximately 16 million inhabitants, whose smiles and warm hospitality is one of the aspects that make Cambodia such a brilliant place to travel to. 

Away from the cities and tourist hot-spots, you have countless opportunities to experience the rustic charms of rural Cambodia, with its ethnic minority hill tribes, abundant agriculture, and simplicity of everyday life. This is what makes a tour to Cambodia an experience rather than a box-ticking exercise. Having long been on the radar of the more intrepid backpackers, Cambodia is looking towards the future with optimism as it’s now firmly on the map as a must-do travel destination.

 

History of Cambodia

The country’s fascinating history is one of the main attractions to explore on a tour of Cambodia, immortalized in the impressive monuments and the traditions of the people. The first settlements sprung up around 150 AD, in the fertile Mekong Delta region, and by the 9th-century the Khmer Empire was founded by King Jayavarman II. 

At first, Khmer civilization was based on agriculture and animist beliefs until Indian spiritual traditions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, were introduced by foreign merchants, sparking the construction of brilliant ancient temples such as Angkor Wat, thought to have mapped the cosmic world in stone. 

tour of Angkor Wat is not only the highlight of most visitors vacation to Cambodia but also the best way to contemplate the glory of the ancient Khmer Empire. By the 16th-century civil war and Thai invasion saw the decline of the empire's power, whilst increasing pressure from Vietnam to the east created a power struggle with Cambodia squeezed in between the two powers. 

The 19th-century marked the retreat of Thai influence from the country but increased numbers of Vietnamese settlers and an influx of French missionaries resulted in Cambodia falling under a French protectorate in 1864

Although this was not a positive time for many everyday Cambodian’s, the French protectorate increased infrastructure in the country and gave the economy a boost, as well as leaving its influence on the country’s culture, something you’ll notice if you take a Cambodia tour package, both in the colonial architecture, with its royal palace and national museum, and the national cuisine. 

Cambodia gained independence in 1953, but the nearby Vietnamese War extended into the country, bringing bombings and conflict. A military coup in 1970 installed a right-wing, pro-US Khmer Republic who faced much opposition from Communism groups such as the notorious Khmer Rouge, marking the beginning of a dark period in the country's history. Led by Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge took power in 1975 and began a campaign of terror and genocide against so-called enemies of the state, including ethnic minority groups and intellectuals. 

Approximately a quarter of the total population was killed during the next three years, many at the fatal Killing Fields. On a package tour to Cambodia, visitors have the opportunity to contemplate this horrific era on several tours and trips around Phnom Penh. Vietnam eventually took control of the country and peace talks began in 1989.

It was not until 1993 that the monarchy was reinstated and today the government is a parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarchy. On a tour of Cambodia, it is eye-opening and fascinating to consider how far the nation has come after those tumultuous years in the not so distant past.

 

Nature in Cambodia

With lowlands, mountains, deltas, and vast plains, Cambodia is an adventurer's dream, whilst on the other hand, its 443 kilometers of coastline along the Gulf of Thailand offers tropical beaches and paradise islands, perfect for beach-lovers. The climate is characterized by dry and wet seasons, with tropical monsoons. 

The country’s verdant rainforests are home to a rich array of wildlife, as is the mighty Tonle Sap Lake in the center of the country. The diverse nature of the landscapes and natural scenery of the country makes Cambodia tours an exciting experience for all lovers of the great outdoors. 

The Cardamon Mountains in the west of the county are covered in lush rainforest, the largest remaining rainforest in Southeast Asia, home to rare and endangered wildlife such as the elusive clouded leopard and Indochinese tigers. Tonle Sap and its surrounding biosphere reserve are home to unique natural phenomena and charming floating villages. 

Taking a boat trip on Tonle Sap is the ultimate way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the region. If you’re looking for something more laid-back, head to beautiful Sihanoukville, a popular beach destination adorned with white sandy beaches and palm trees and Cambodia’s favorite paradise retreat.

 

Culture in Cambodia

On a tour of Cambodia, you’ll notice how religion is intertwined with the daily lives of almost all inhabitants. Modern Khmer culture is a fusion of traditional animistic beliefs and Buddhism with a touch of French influence too. Unique hill tribe cultures have their cultural traditions adding to the fascinating tapestry of national culture in Cambodia. 

Traditional Khmer architecture, dance, and sculpture are beautiful relics of the country’s history; you cannot miss a traditional dance performance during a trip to Cambodia. Today, old and new sit side by side. The cities might feel modern but rural communities continue to live simple lives and keep their ancestors' traditions alive. Around the country, traditional dress is widely worn and has important societal and hierarchical importance indicated in different colors and patterns. 

Embark on a journey to one of Southeast Asia’s most exotic destinations. Cambodia charms you with its mix of modernity and tradition and it’s impossible to not fall in love with the warmth of the people and the treasures of the ancient Khmer Empire.
