Is this trip right for you?

  • The stories and history 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. Some further information on visiting the Killing Fields of Choeung Ekcan be found here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/importance-visiting-cambodia-k...

  • 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.

  • If you would prefer a longer, more in-depth trip in Cambodia in Comfort style, see our 10 day Cambodia Encompassed (TKKI) itinerary, our 13 day Cambodia & Vietnam Discovery (TKKCC), or our 20 day Classic Cambodia & Vietnam (TKKHC).
