"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

Introducing Cambodia

Centuries of heritage, unbelievable natural beauty, and friendly locals make this welcoming destination a premier stop for all travel enthusiasts.

When is the best time to visit?
There’s no bad time of year to visit Cambodia, but the main tourist season happens when temperatures are coolest from November through February. To avoid some of the crowds, visit towards the end of the country’s dry season, which extends all the way into May. 

Where to go in Cambodia?
For an iconic Cambodian experience, tour the temples of the ancient city of Angkor. Additionally, there are many undiscovered off-the-beaten-path gems, like the untouched island beaches of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, the up and coming bustling city of Phnom Penh, and the 216 stone faces carved at Angkor Thom. 

How many days do I need?
Budget at least 6 days in Cambodia to explore the temples and also get to know the vibrant community.

Cambodia was a perfect balance of temples, history, food and people. We were thrilled with our guide, Mr. Arn. He was very knowledgable about Siem Reep and the history of the country. We asked endless questions and he always had an answer. We really wanted to get to know the people of Cambodia and we were introduced to many locals and tasted local foods and watched the local artisans make their crafts. What a magical country.
Also a shout out to all our drivers. Always on time and having cold water for us to drink and stopping if we saw something we wanted to see or get a photo of! Thank you Steve for an amazing trip!

Dy our guide for the Siem Reap circuit and Sreylen for the Phnom Penh circuit were knowledgeable and took care of the plan. The drivers of both circuits were brilliant and made sure the whole itinerary was covered in full but at the same time were flexible enough to ensure the balance between hactic schedule and free pleasure time. All the accomodation were hand picked and were exclusive and luxurious.
A thoroughly enjoyable trip that we will remember for years to come.
