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.

How Many Days to Spend in Cambodia

Cambodia is a small country with a wealth of cultural attractions and landscapes, from glorious beaches to thick jungle-clad mountains and lush rivers. However, it's best not to pack too much into your visit because the infrastructure makes getting around quite slow. If you opt for a slow-travel experience that favors quality over quantity, it doesn't matter whether you have five days or two weeks in Cambodia, as you'll certainly have a rich and rewarding stay.

Plus, there's time to relax by the beaches of Kep before rounding out your adventure in Phnom Penh.

We were very impressed with the ease of working with Steve and his quick response to our needs as he put together a 3 week trip through Cambodia. Our guide in Siem Reap Sokin was great. She was knowledgeable, energetic and flexible to our needs. The temples of Angkor of course are amazing!
The next section of our trip took us to Koh Ker which was beyond words. We progressed east to Stung Treng and the Mekong River activities to the most memorable morning. We had breakfast floating down the river on a bamboo raft. Definitely a surprise and delight event!!!
The next stop was treking to see gibbons and walking with an elephant in the jungle, also fantastic although a very hot hikes. Our guide from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh was Mr Tea who was willing to adapt to our changing needs due to the heat. Our final leg was from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and Van Sreylen was our guide for this final portion. She was fun, informative and flexible with the itinerary as we toured Phnom Penh and Battambang. A final highlight was the bamboo train!
Our lodging varied from beautiful Farmhouse Resort to a minimalistic Bambu hotel. We loved the Aviary Hotel in Siem Reap with its location, facilities and wonderful staff.
And a final word about our driver Mr. Ya who went above and beyond to make our trip as safe and comfortable as possible and always did it with a great big smile. We can't say enough good things about him! He's a gem!

Also, appreciate sharing comments about the three guides. All very different characters but excellent at their jobs. And great to hear the driver, Mr Ya took excellent care of you throughout. We will let them all know about your kind words.
It was a pleasure working with you to plan the tour and I know your travelling companion, Debra enjoyed the visit as well.
Please do tell as many people as possible about the magic of Cambodia.
Best regards from an even hotter Siem Reap. We might hit 40c in a few days!

Thong on our northern Vietnam portion of the trip went above and beyond what we expected, and he always had a wonderful smile on his face. Tommy on the central Vietnam portion of our trip and Vuong on our southern Vietnam portion of our trip were also very good. Savy in Cambodia made sure we saw everything in a way that was comfortable for my older husband with some mobility problems and encouraged me to visit some to the areas impossible for my husband to manage while he remained him. He was always waiting for us when we came down from our hotel room no matter how early we were. The drivers were also very good throughout the trip. In central Vietnam our driver always had ice cold water waiting for us when we returned to the van and in Cambodia they had ice cold water and ice cold towels every time we returned to the van. The trip was everything we expected and more.
