Let Us Plan Your Travel to Cambodia
Cambodia is a criminally overlooked luxury travel destination. The staggering Angkor temples are world famous, and with good reason, but what many may not realise is that there is a whole world of adventure waiting beyond. Cambodia is arguably Asia’s most exciting destination – just waiting to be explored.
Your tour is likely to start in either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. Whether it’s indulging your inner Lara Croft in the former, or diving into street food and nightlife in the latter, these are cities are a travellers’ dream with friendly locals, walkable city centres, and a plethora of excellent accommodation. As well the principal sightseeing both offer eye-opening cultural immersion activities: walking tours, cooking classes, art tours, or village exploration out in the nearby countryside.
The adventures pick up out in wider Cambodia. Battambang is an easy addition to most tours and offers gorgeous colonial architecture in its centre and enticing rural scenery just outside. A jaunt up to Kratie provides Mekong river adventures searching for rare Irrawaddy dolphins and idyllic uninhabited islets. Down south you’ll find steamy jungles, staggering beaches, and mouth-watering seafood.
Beyond all of that allure what many visitors find most captivating about Cambodia is the spirit and resilience of its people. Despite a very difficult modern history, the Cambodian people retain an infectious optimism, welcoming travellers in with their smiles as some of the friendliest and most hospitable people in Asia.

When is the best time to travel to Cambodia?
Cambodia’s climate is distinctly tropical, divided into three clear seasons: a hot and wet season from May through to August, a warm but largely dry season from mid-October through to March, and shoulder seasons sandwiched in between when the weather is changeable but manageable. The temperate high season months – October, November, December, January, February, March – are the best time to travel countrywide, broadly tying in with similar periods in surrounding southeast Asian destinations. Check out our ‘When to Travel’ page for more information.
Is Cambodia a safe country to travel in?
Cambodia has certainly had a patchy history and unfortunately the uninitiated may know little of the country aside from the Khmer Rouge or the Vietnam War. The present bears no relation to the past however, and Cambodia today is a modernising, thriving, and extremely welcoming destination. Foreign tourists are treated like royalty and it is an exceptionally safe place to visit, either in its exciting urban areas, or way out in its gorgeous rural and coastal escapes.
Is there more to see than just Angkor Wat?
Put this to our specialists and you’ll receive a polite but firm response – no, no, absolutely not! Cambodia is an incredibly exciting destination, offering delicious food, thrilling outdoor adventure, magnificent scenery, terrific museums and galleries, and stunning beaches. You could spend three weeks in the country, not visit a single temple, and leave with some of your all-time best travel memories. Of course the Angkor temples are famous for a reason and well-worth every minute, but we’re always careful to manage your itinerary so you’ll never feel ‘templed out!’
What is the standard of guiding and service in Cambodia?
In a word – excellent. The Cambodian people as a whole are extremely friendly, and tourism a much-prized part of the Cambodian economy, so you’ll find locals go above and beyond to ensure tourists are well looked after. Guiding is considered a prestigious and well-paying profession and thus guides in Cambodia are typically very well-qualified, with excellent English, and a mine of information about their country.
Does Cambodia have any luxury hotels?
Absolutely, yes. Cambodia has always had a select few luxury institutions – usually a throwback to colonial times, such as heritage treasures Le Royal in Phnom Penh and Grand Hotel d’Angkor in Siem Reap, both now operated by the Raffles group – but in recent years has seen a raft of exciting openings all across the country. Kep, Koh Rong, Battambang, Tatai, Kirirom, Kratie…you can now travel far and wide throughout Cambodia and find accommodation of an excellent standard in even the most off-beaten-path locations.
