Is this trip right for you?
  • 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.You will visit a number of temples on this trip, and this requires a level of modesty.

A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.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
  • There are some long travel days by both private and public transport (up to 10 hours on the road), including the day that we cross from Thailand to Cambodia. Your leader and local guides will assist with the border crossings, but plenty of patience is advised
  • You'll be spending a night with a local family on this trip. While the accommodation is shared and basic, this is a great opportunity to connect with the local people (and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals!).

Our trip to Cambodia with Intrepid was made extra special because of our tour guide Raus. She had so much enthusiasm, joy and knowledge about her country, We didn’t want to leave her! Highly recommend this trip as Cambodia is a hidden gem and Raus is a wonderful ambassador for her country. She also has excellent communication skills.

First time in Cambodia, glad I booked a group tour, learnt so much about the people, the country the culture. Our guide Ms Raus made the trip. She was knowledgeable, patient and sought fun. The trip had an excellent balance of activity and rest. No issues with any trip details. An easy 10/10 experience. Will take Intrepid again.
