Travel to Cambodia and encounter the cultural and architectural riches of this ancient land
From the majestic temples of Angkor to the gorgeous colonial-era architecture of Battambang and the devastating Khmer Rouge reign of the 1970s, Cambodia is a country that emanates history at every turn. Jungle vines crawl over Angkor Wat’s weathered walls, bamboo trains trundle along railway lines and villagers work their land in much the same way they have for generations. This remarkable small group adventure will get you off the tourist trail, away from the crowds, and into the heart and soul of this inspiring destination.
Kick things off with dinner at the Friends restaurant, combining an excellent local cause with a memorable dining experience

Cambodia can get very hot, and even temple-hopping can take it out of you quickly. Remember to use sun protection and drink plenty of water.

I have used Intrepid on several occasions and i find them great they show concern and great insight into the counties they visit. I also appreciate the sensitivity and ethical approach they use when touring countries. The trip i liked the most was Burma as this is a new country opening up and is very interesting. I also find the guides great and insightful

Excellent trip - tour guide should be one of the highlights as they give you so much information and understanding of the country, culture and people. Be prepared for several days of temples - regretably this trip did not do Preah Vihear we did this separately, and after Angkor Wat and Thom, this is the next best temple site to visit. There is a hint here for the tour organisors. One less day in Battambang and Seim Reap and go to Preah Vihear in the north of the country.
