Let Us Plan Your Luxury Tour 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.
If you are planning a complete tour of Indochina then Cambodia will combine seamlessly with neighbouring Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Transport links between the four countries are excellent. A big-hitting tour of the region – taking in any or all of Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Luang Prabang, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Singapore, Phuket – is painless to arrange and travel through, offering the tantalising opportunity to take in all of Southeast Asia’s greatest hits in one action-packed itinerary.
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.
How do we avoid the tourists at Angkor Wat?
Angkor Wat sits at the top table of global tourism destinations and with good reason typically sees over 2 million visitors a year. Many of these will be in large groups – tourism from wider Asia, particularly China and South Korea, has become a key market for Cambodia in recent years – which can make navigating the ethereal temples especially frustrating. Much less of a problem however on a private tailor-made tour, particularly when UTC explicitly seek out guiding partners who put crowd avoidance central to all their tour planning. Our guides will make subtle tweaks to the timing and routing of your temple visits, ensuring you get to experience the majesty of Angkor without a thousand and one selfie sticks in view.
Is there more to see in Cambodia 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!’
Is Cambodia a good family destination?
Siem Reap is typically at its busiest around the Christmas and Easter holiday periods, and this is testament to Cambodia’s growing reputation as a destination of choice for adventurous families. Families could spend a week in Siem Reap alone without running out of adventure and educational activities: there’s art tours, cooking classes, ziplining, quad-biking, village walks…plus all those extraordinary temples of course! Bringing in rural tours around Battambang, food tours in Phnom Penh, and fantastic beach hotels on the coast, there are more than enough adventures to keep the family entertained, with an excellent standard of service and accommodation, and extremely competitive prices all part of the bundle.
Does Cambodia have any good beaches?
The south coast of Cambodia borders opens out to the Gulf of Thailand, and contains several island escapes which can compete with anything on offer across the border in Thailand. Koh Rong, Koh Rong Samleon, and Koh Ta Kiev have all recently seen exciting luxury hotel openings, with several very good mid-range and superior options on offer nearby too. The beaches are simply magnificent, and there’s lots of activity on offer with boat tours, water sports, and jungle adventures all at hand. With a mainland airport located less than an hour away back in Sihanoukville, this area of Cambodia is set to grow and grow fast. We suggest getting out there now!
Does Cambodia combine easily with other countries in Indochina?
Cambodia, along with Vietnam and Laos, make up the region of southeast Asia formerly known as French Indochina. All three countries – with the addition of neighbouring Thailand – have fluid borders and the transport links between them are strong. Good quality road networks and a recent proliferation of regional air travel has made combining these destinations both time and cost-effective: you could be eating breakfast in Bangkok, deep into the Angkor temples by lunchtime, then out on the town in Phnom Penh in the same evening should you wish! A visit to Indochina is an opportunity to experience these captivating destinations side-by-side, where you’ll quickly learn that while the culture and character of each is markedly different, all are equally compelling.
