This quick but in depth trip will give you great insight into Cambodia in a short amount of time.
Acquaint yourself with frenetic Bangkok, a wonderland of excellent street food, enchanting canals and sprawling marketplaces.
Experience rural life from a local's perspective, with a homestay in Kampong Thom province and other village visits.
Get up early and see the sunrise over the dazzling Angkor complex, one of Southeast Asia's most stunning sights.
Learn some Khmer and hear the history of Cambodia through the stories of your local leader.
Visits to the Tuoi Sieng Genocide Museum (S21) and the Choeung Ek Memorial are sombre but moving experiences.
Travel from Thailand to Vietnam, experiencing the contrasts between three of the regions most fascinating countries.
To take in the main sights of Cambodia in a short amount of time means some long travel days (up to 10 hours driving) by private and public bus.
The homestay is a wonderful opportunity to witness every day rural life and includes a home cooked dinner. Facilities are simple and multishare but comfortable with mattresses, bedding and mosquito nets all provided. Some travellers are nervous about the home stay experience before they arrive, but we find most end up naming this as a highlight of their time in Cambodia and a rewarding, authentic experience.
Temperatures and humidity can be high in Cambodia, especially walking around sights like the Angkor complex where there may be little shade. Be prepared by taking plenty of drink breaks and wearing appropriate skin protection. Some travellers find an umbrella handy to keep the sun off (this will also come in handy should it rain!).
On occasion our accommodation may not have hot water, but you will probably be keen to cool down from the heat with a refreshing cold shower!
The stories shared at the Killing Fields and S21 are confronting and many travellers will find them upsetting. This is an important part of Cambodia's recent history that we feel is important to share. If you would prefer to sit out these activities your leader can recommend some alternative options.
