Overview

Cambodia is famous for its temples and no trip is complete without visiting the magnificent Angkor Wat complex. What most people don’t know about, however, is Cambodia’s beautiful coastline. A few hours south of Phnom Penh you’ll find pristine rainforest, laidback fishing villages, and islands where turquoise waters lap against gorgeous white sand beaches.

This 14-day exploration really lets you get the most out of this incredible country. You’ll start with four days exploring Angkor Wat, visiting both the most famous temples as well as those that lay further off the beaten track. Sunset drinks at Angkor Thom and a sunrise visit to the temples allow you to see the area at is most magical with the ancient relics set against an ever-changing sky.

You’ll then spend two nights in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital and a city known for its unsettled history. A visit to the Killing Fields and Genocide Museum is important and sobering, experiences but there are also beautiful palaces and pagodas to discover in the city itself.

It’s then time to explore Cambodia’s wonderful southern coast, starting with three nights in Kep, a quaint seaside town and former French colonial retreat. You’ll visit hillside temples, explore hidden caves and lakes and try some of the delicious crab that this area is so famous for. You’ll then head to the area around the Cardamom Mountains – a wonderfully secluded and untouched part of the country. From here you can kayak through mangrove forests, swim in waterfalls, hike through the forest and enjoy soaking up the sights and sounds of the forest in relative isolation.

The final part of this trip sees you relaxing on Cambodia’s beautiful white-sand beaches. Snorkel and swim through crystal clear waters and spend time unwinding at the gorgeous properties that allow you to enjoy this gorgeous part of the country in comfort and style.

It's estimated that more than 20,000 people were held and tortured here. Lunch is not included. In the afternoon, visit the National Museum.

Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors.

Also known as Chok Gargyar, it served as the capital of Jayavarman IV (reigned 928-42). His son and successor Harshavarman I moved the capital back to Angkor in 944.

There are more than 30 major structures and experts believe there may have been as many as 100 minor sacred buildings in the region.
