About Cambodia

Best of Cambodia Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh celebrates life with optimism and colour, and there are a wealth of riverside eateries, bustling markets and historic sites - both tragic and inspiring - to discover.

Days 3-4 Battambang

With the Sangker River running alongside, Battambang has wonderfully preserved French Colonial architecture, ornate Khmer temples and a laidback feel, despite being Cambodia's second-largest city.

Days 5-7 Siem Reap/Angkor Wat

A vibrant nightlife, mouth-watering food, a time-worn French feel and certain famous temples on its doorstep - Siem Reap is a little town with a big, pulsating heart. Immense, awe-inspiring, extraordinary - the Angkor Wat temples are all this and much more. Built in the 12th century, this former Khmer city is nothing short of spectacular.

Day 8 Kompong Cham

Situated on the mighty Mekong, Kompong Cham retains the charm of traditional Cambodia. Sit back and relax into its peaceful nature, French flavour and Khmer heritage.

Days 9-10 Kampot

With gorgeous scenery, lush rice paddies and nearby Phnom Chhnork Caves, Kampot is a beautiful little town famous for growing pepper and durian.

Days 11-12 Sihanoukville

Sihanoukville - or Kompong Som to locals - is a small port town with long stretches of beach and beautiful, sleepy islands just off the coast.

Days 13-14 Phnom Penh

Sitting on the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers, Phnom Penh is buzzing with modern life, while still retaining some of its French Colonial heritage.
