Travel from Vietnam to Thailand, experiencing the contrasts between three of the regions most fascinating countries.
The stories and history 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 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 can be found here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/importance-visiting-cambodia-k...
There are some long travel days by both private and public transport (up to 10 hours on the road), including the days that we cross from Vietnam to Cambodia and Cambodia to Thailand. Your leader and local guides will assist with the border crossings, but plenty of patience is advised.
Some travellers enjoy Siem Reap so much that they decide they want to stay extra days rather than continuing with the group to Bangkok. You are welcome to sign off the trip to enjoy more of Cambodia, however we aren’t able to reimburse any unused services or provide alternate onward travel arrangements.
At times our accommodation may not have continuous hot water. Most travellers don’t find this a problem however, and are often keen to cool down from the heat with a refreshing cold shower!
We stay in hotel accommodation throughout this trip. If you would prefer a similar trip with a homestay experience, you might like to consider booking our Cambodia Express (TKSD) trip.

This is a great short introduction to a fascinating country. Our group got on extremely well, and everyone chose to participate in almost all activities (not just the included ones). My one piece of feedback is that the first and last days are almost all travel (exacerbated in our case by trying to travel from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh the day after the national elections...). Whist this was an interesting experience, our final day was an all-day bus journey to Bangkok, a nice farewell meal, and then a few hours sleep in a hotel before getting up for an early flight home. With hindsight, this was a waste of time and money: if I had realised that Siem Reap had an International airport, we would have left the trip there, had an extra day at leisure, and flown back from there. Otherwise, a wonderful holiday!

Intrepid is not your average tour group as its attraction is the authencity of the guide, the well researched locations, connections with real people providing the opportunity to experience Cambodia through the lives and work of locals. What you read as a one line summary of an activity masks the adverture that lies within. Travelling with Intrepid is a life-changing experience as long as you pack an open mind and spirit of adventure.
