Experience Cambodia in all its colours and contrasts
Discover the magic of Cambodia, from the palm-lined coastal fringes to the heart of the country's Khmer heritage. Journey from bustling Bangkok to remote Banteay Chhmar and on to Angkor, where mind-blowing temples strike a dazzling pose in the setting sun. Mountain-bike by the Mekong in Phnom Penh, stay with a local family in the Cardamom Mountains, then relax and unwind on the perfect beaches of Ko Kong and Ko Chang. With something for everyone, this is the perfect two-week trip through Cambodia.
A night of leisure time in Bangkok is a golden opportunity for a street food feast. The Thai capital is quite arguably the world's greatest open-air barbeque
Get a double dose of Angkor greatness. Explore not only the world-famous complex outside Siem Reap, but also the incredible and remote Banteay Chhmar, aka Citadel of the Cat
Enjoy a well-balanced activity schedule in Phnom Penh. After a Mekong mountain bike trip, use free time to confront the dark history of the Khmer Rouge
Get off the beaten track in the Cardamom Mountains, trekking to rapids and a waterfall and staying overnight with a local family
Ko Chang offers the perfect finish to your Asian adventure. Laze around on beautiful palm-lined shores or go snorkelling with tropical fish
There are two homestays on this trip: one in the remote community of Banteay Chhmar (Day 2), and one in Chi Phat in the Cardamom Mountains (Day 8).

Intrepid got us into the heart of Cambodia by offering a varied itinerary, an ideal guide and experiences we'd not have found on our own. We got to understand the value of tourism to off-the-beaten-track locations (while never feeling pushed to make purchases), and get first-hand accounts of the country's history--both its grand ancient past and its more recent horrors. The trip was a wonderful mix of pure pleasure and meaningful education, a riot of sensual input around every corner.

A fantastic way to see 'real Cambodia' as well as the major tourist spots. There is a bit of travel involved but the means of transport and accommodation are quite comfortable!
