Why you'll love this trip
  • See the very best that Cambodia has to offer in just under a week as you traverse the country with a small group of up to 11 new friends
  • Discover a land of contrasts and turbulent history, visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21) and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek as well as the opulent Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda
  • Explore the amazing Angkor archaeological complex in depth with your included three-day pass, so as well as guided tours, you have the option to return and explore at your own pace
  • Be welcomed into a local village for a tour of their agricultural surroundings and enjoy sunset drinks with a local family in their stilt house
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, CRST. Donations help them break the cycle of poverty in Cambodia by inspiring and empowering children with education opportunities.

Is this trip right for you?
  • The stories and history shared at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21) and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek are confronting and many travellers will find them upsetting. This is an important part of Cambodia’s recent history that we feel is important for travellers to know. If you would prefer not to join these activities your leader can recommend some optional alternatives. Some further information on visiting the Killing Fields of Choeung Ekcan be found here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/importance-visiting-cambodia-killing-fields/
  • You will visit a number of temples on this trip, and this requires a level of modesty. Be sure to bring clothes that cover the arms and pants or skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

This trip was phenomenal. I learned so much about Cambodia (its history and way of life) and our tour leader went above and beyond to make the trip a memorable one.

This trip has been SO interesting, from the harrowing Killing fields to boat trios, amazing temples, silk farm, ampling tasty food and arts culture whist supporting NGO s, the list is endless What stays with us most is the smiles from the locals, the warmth from the tour leader and guides, and the friendly group of travellers wanting to learn about another culture Thank-you Interpid, our first trip with you, it's been great!
