Luxury Cambodia Vacations & Tours

Cambodia is a criminally overlooked luxury travel destination. While the famed Angkor temples are awe-inspiring, Cambodia offers much more. It invites daring travelers to uncover uncharted adventures, making a bid for the title of Asia’s most thrilling destination.

Beneath Angkor’s splendor, Cambodia boasts diverse landscapes, from lush jungles to pristine beaches and lively cities. Explore remote temples in Koh Ker’s forests or cruise the Mekong for a dynamic range of experiences. Whether you seek culture, adventure, or island serenity, Cambodia has it all.

Speak to the Expert

If you are planning a complete tour of Indochina then Cambodia will combine seamlessly with neighboring 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, and Phuket – is painless to arrange and travel through.

Why we love private tours of Cambodia

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 cities are a travelers’ dream with friendly locals, walkable city centers, and a plethora of excellent accommodations. As well as the principal sightseeing, both cities offer eye-opening cultural immersion activities: walking tours, cooking classes, art tours, or village exploration out in the nearby countryside.

The adventures pick up in wider Cambodia. Battambang is an easy addition to most tours and offers gorgeous colonial architecture in its center 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 travelers in with their smiles as some of the friendliest and most hospitable people in Asia.

Best places to go in Cambodia

Cambodia is a compact country with (these days) good internal flight links and national highways. A round-country trip is accessible and action-packed, taking in the majesty of Angkor, vibrant Phnom Penh, the languid coastal resorts of Kep and Koh Rong, and the teeming jungles in Cambodia’s heartland.

Best time to visit Cambodia

Cambodia is a tropical destination and as such sees warm temperatures year-round. Even in the coolest months of December and January the mercury will rarely drop below 25C / 77F in the middle of the day so whatever time you plan to visit, pack some shorts!

It is also a year-round destination: even the wetter summer months have long stretches of dry weather, plus lower hotel rates and thinner crowds around the temples. A complete season-by-season guide can be found here.

What to do in Cambodia

Cambodia is a real traveler’s destination. It rewards the adventurous and the curious, with much to explore both on- and off the beaten path. Should you extend your stay beyond Siem Reap and treat the country as a whole – which we heartily recommend – you’ll find enticing scenery and exhilarating activity at every turn.

  • Angkor Thom, Cambodia

    Sundowners on the moat of Angkor Thom

    The perfect introduction to Angkor: enjoy a late afternoon tuk-tuk tour of Banteay Kdei and Angkor Thom before relaxing on a gondola boat, and enjoy the sunset with a cool drink in hand.

  • Street Food, Cambodia

    Breakfast tour of Phnom Penh

    Phnom Penh is full of life in the morning, with breakfast in particular being an integral part of Cambodian daily life. This immersive tour takes you through bustling markets and street-side stalls in neighborhoods outside the usual tourist circuit.

  • Tonle Sap, Cambodia

    Discover the floating villages of Lake Tonle Sap

    The nature-rich freshwater lake of Tonle Sap is a Cambodian national treasure. Meet the communities that live around its margins on a private boat tour, listening to bird calls and watching rural life pass across this glistening water world.

Your Cambodia questions answered

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, and March – are the best time to travel countrywide, broadly tying in with similar periods in surrounding Southeast Asian destinations.

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 modernizing, 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 Unforgettable Travel Company explicitly seeks 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 – yes, absolutely! 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 are 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 a 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 are 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’s borders opens out to the Gulf of Thailand and contains several island escapes that 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 neighboring Thailand – have fluid borders and the transport links between them are strong. Good quality road networks and a recent proliferation of regional air travel have 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 are markedly different, all are equally compelling.
