Why you'll love this trip
  • This short but sweet adventure is packed full of experiences that will give you great insight into Cambodia and the contrasts between three of the region's most fascinating countries.
  • Watch the sun rising over Angkor Wat as it did over 800 years ago with your leader. Wander through the amazing ancient temples on a guided tour and with a three-day Angkor pass to cover your whole time in Siem Reap, you can explore this incredible temple complex as much and as often as you like.
  • Discover the countryside around Battambang on a bike ride around rural farms to meet with local producers, through an Intrepid partner and social enterprise that supports the local communities and provides training opportunities.
  • Experience life on water on a boat tour visiting the floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake and understand the deep bond between the lake and the local communities.
  • Join in a confronting yet important tour in Phnom Penh to The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and reflect on its devastating impact on the modern Cambodia.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, CRST. Donations help them break the cycle of poverty in Cambodia by inspiring and empowering children with education opportunities.

Is this trip right for you?
  • If you’d like to spend more time in South East Asia, have a look at the combos that include this trip’s itinerary: Best of Vietnam & Cambodia (TVSKC), South East Asia Loop (TTSVC) and Vietnam & Cambodia Adventure (TVSLC).
  • There are some long travel days on private and public transport on this trip (up to 10 hours on the road), including the days that you cross from Vietnam to Cambodia and Cambodia to Thailand. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • Some travellers enjoy Siem Reap so much that they decide they want to stay extra days rather than continue with the group to Bangkok. You are welcome to sign off the trip to enjoy more of Cambodia, however we’re unable to reimburse any unused services or provide alternate onward travel arrangements.

First trip with Intrepid and we loved every minute. Well organised without being prescriptive and I felt supported in a country I had never visited before

This was an excellent trip and a great way to learn about and experience Cambodia. The included activities were all well organized, there were lots of optional activities to choose from and plenty of free time for resting too. We had an exceptional guide who made everything easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend this trip.

This tour of Cambodia showed more than just the essentials of Cambodia for the average tourist. It went in depth and we were fortunate to have visited small villages and observed the way that Cambodian locals live and work. I felt that my knowledge of the recent history of Cambodia was expanded due to our guide, Sareth, as well as the other guides who showed us the locations. This trip provided me with a new mindset about life and a deep gratitude for what I have seen and learnt.

Vietnam was amazing! The guide was fun and really went the extra mile, unfortunately the Cambodia part of the trip was the polar opposite!
