What's included in this trip
Best of Cambodia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.
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.
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.
Get a taste of real Cambodian life on a homestay with a local family in one of the traditional villages near the impressive Sambor Prei Kuk temple complex.
With gorgeous scenery, lush rice paddies and nearby Phnom Chhnork Caves, Kampot is a beautiful little town famous for growing pepper and durian.
Sihanoukville - or Kompong Som to locals - is a small port town with long stretches of beach and beautiful, sleepy islands just off the coast.
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.

Best of Cambodia, May 2014
Overall, I had an amazing experience! This was the first time I had travelled with Intrepid and I was very happy to have made that choice! I have already recommended Intrepid, and especially the guide that I had, Keasar, to my friends and family.
