Cambodia Holidays

Cambodia holidays allow you to experience a nation with something to thrill everyone. Those with a love of history will marvel at Angkor Wat and the archaeological site of Banteay Srei. A land of lush greenery, beautiful beaches, and ancient sights, Cambodia has the power to continually surprise all those who visit. It determinedly lingers in the memory too.

Home to cities such as  Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, and rural locations including mountainous Phnom Kulen and the Virachey National Park, Cambodia caters for everyone. Discover beaches and the clear waters beyond, where marine life is ready to surprise you or head inland and hike through the forests. Alternatively, satisfy your appetite with the classic bai sach chrouk dish made from pork and rice – just one of many Cambodian dishes to try.

As well as the main attractions to visit such as the Angkor Wat complex in Siem Reap and the Killing Fields close to Phnom Penh, there are many other activities available which you may not necessarily know about, here are a few to think about adding into your itinerary,

  • Dolphin Spotting

    Head out to the Mekong River in search of the Irrawaddy dolphins – a rare breed which are often seen swimming along a glorious section of the river. They’re best spotted later in the afternoon, shyly breaching the water’s surface in their pod.

  • Beautiful Sunrises

    Getting up early may not be in your itinerary, but the early start is well worth it in exchange for witnessing the glorious sun as it climbs high over Angkor Wat. It’s the perfect opportunity for keen photographers.

  • Snorkelling

    No scuba diving skills are necessary to see some amazing marine life in Cambodia. Sihanoukville is the ideal spot for some snorkelling while taking a break from the beach. Koh Rong also offers shallow waters and numerous beautiful underwater species to spot on guided tours and excursions.

  • Pub Street in Siem Reap

    Of an evening Pub Street is a great place to have a meal, relax with a drink, have a well earned foot massage or hit a bar till the early hours. Easily assessed from the hotels by a short tuk tuk journey.

  • Phnom Penh City Tour by Tuk Tuk

    Begin your tour of the capital with a visit to the city's namesake, Wat Phnom, the Royal Palace and right next door the Silver Pagoda. Continue to the nearby National Museum, built in 1917 it is an exceptional example of traditional architecture and is exclusively devoted to preserving and displaying Khmer art and sculptures.

  • Cambodia Cuisine

    Cambodia is all about delivering fresh and easy to prepare food, with the street life alive with some simple, yet delicious choices. From Pork Kebabs to Deep Fired Spiders you won't be short of new things to try.
