Indochina small group overland tour
Memorable parts? Gosh! All of it! It was an amazing 40 day adventure but I particularly enjoyed watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia, kayaking around Halong Bay in Vietnam and the stunning scenery of Laos and in particular watching the sun set over the Mekong River in Luang Prabang. Tips? We were constantly on the move, which was very exhausting and at the end of the Vietnam trip (the 40 day Indochina adventure was actually 3 separate tours which I did not realise and...

From £1815 - £1925 excluding flights
Cambodia country tour, temples & sea
Memorable parts? We loved our time in Banteay Chhmar spending time getting to know the town and its people with a local guide. The overgrown temples were gorgeous and almost empty of other tourists. We also really loved our knowledgeable guide from Siem Reap. He shared his passion for local politics, his difficult years under the Pol Pot regime and his wonderful, blossoming country. It was great to be with two guides who were both proud of their country and their communities and proud... (more)Elke MacGregor
From £749 excluding flights
Angkor Wat tour
Memorable parts? First sight on Angkor Wat before sunrise, silhouetted against a dark sky. Tips? Bring sunscreen! Local benefits? We had a great local guide, but I was concerned about the impact of our big, air-conditioned bus & noisy diesel longtail boat during the trip up Tonle Sap. I'd like to know more about how money from tourism actually infiltrates the local economy. I'm concerned that tourism is creating a dependent, vassal class of native servants & merchants. (more)Diane Pittman
From £650 - £805 including domestic flights only
Vietnam to Thailand, small group holiday
Memorable parts? All the tour has been exciting. Tips? Arrival in Saigon without any city visit is not so useful and could be avoided. Local benefits? Absolutely yes. Overall rating? (more)Terry Basilico
From £435 - £630 excluding flights
Cambodia holidays, Phnom Penh & Angkor
Fantastic window into cambodia. we needed a few days on a thai beach to assimilate it all. (more)Anna Bradley
So many things were amazing. Seeing the sun rise at Angkor Wat, trekking in the Kulen mountains and camping overnight at the monastery at the top. My daughter would say it was riding on an elephant, something she has always wanted to do. (more)Janet Potts
Rather to my surprise, given that I went solely to see Angkor, the most memorable part was probably eating real food in local Cambodian eating places...I would rate is as well constructed and well led - and well enjoyed. What more could I have wanted? It was perfect. (more)C Beels
From £2050 - £2250 including UK flights
Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh holiday
Wonderful - important to note that the head of the company in Vietnam that arranged the tour rang to check in on me in Saigon which made me feel like a valued customer (more)Sara Geale
Amazing, simply perfect. And their integrity with money issues was outstanding. Which is quite rare with private package tour operators I later found. (more)Maha Almojel
The Jungle Temple in Siem Reap was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Steve Dalby
From £530 including domestic flights only
Thailand, Laos and Cambodia holiday
Memorable parts? The train Journey from Bangkok, the days on the Mekong and the guided tour of Bangkok. Tips? There are not too many high spots on this holiday, as it misses out the main sights. This is a rather low key trip and some of it is very beautiful. It does take you to less visited areas. Prepare for two full days of travelling at the end to get to Phenom Phen. Local benefits? Definitely relations with local people were respectful and brought benefits to them. Overall... (more)Lesley Holly
From £2310 - £2510 including UK flights
Cambodia holiday, beyond Angkor
The most memorable part of the holiday was the early morning visit to Angkor Wat temple to see the sun rise. (more)Rabea Khan
Most memorable werer the Jungle walks, sleeping in a temple on a sacred mountain and travelling by boat past floating villages... (more)Martin Smith
From £2350 - £2600 including UK flights
Photography tour in Vietnam and Cambodia
Memorable parts? Having Nathan Horton on the trip gave a very interesting slant to an already enjoyable holiday. Nathan had a flair for taking the group to places which were not on the tourist trail and this was very much appreciated. His photographic tuition was well worth the premium paid for this service and my photography improved whilst enjoying the country and the people - Boom. Tips? Just enjoy it. One tip is that Nathan does not hike at a leisurely pace and, as a resident... (more)John Martin
From £3100 including UK flights
Vietnam & Cambodia holiday
Absolutely loved the Sapa region - Mountains & mist and Ian was a fantastic tour leader. Hoi An town was just amazingly beautiful & relaxed. (more)Heather Johnson
It was quite a whirlwind and, although everyone got extremely tired, the memories of Vietnam will mellow like a good wine. (more)Christine Mackenzie
From £1995 - £2790 including domestic flights only
Indochina overland tour, Saigon to Angkor
Joining crowds of people and the sense of anticipation felt when waiting for the sunrise over Ankor Wat. Being taught to create and cook my own wrap was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Sara Page
The sampan ride through the jungle at Xe Quit and coffee in the floating market in Vietnam were the most memorable parts of the holiday. (more)Yvette Etcell
Most memorable were Angkor Wat and the other temples around Siem Reap. Home Stay near Vinh Long. (more)Graham Dalby
From £2600 - £2800 including UK flights
Highlights of Indochina tour
Very good...I appreciated the variety - everything from overnight in a village in Vietnam and being entertained by the locals in that beautiful place, to crawling through Cu Chi tunnels (very dark)to Silk production, making rice paper ... also liked Angkor Wat and associated temples, fascinating. (more)pamela taylor
Luang Prabang - such a pleasant place. The quality of orgaisation ranged from good to excellent. (more)Rosemary Napper
From £2710 - £3105 including domestic flights only
Cambodia photography and art tour for solo travellers
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of visiting Cambodia was the sacred architecture of the Khmer empire (about 1000 years ago). It was hard work to get through some of the crowds of tourists but once there was space to look around, it was beautiful to see exquisite carving, design, even the remnants of painted colour in part of Angkor Wat as well as the natural variations of stone. The meditation at Ta Prohm was very special and evoked an atmosphere of other worldliness amongst the... (more)Janet Douglas
From £1145 excluding flights
Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City

Cambodia & Vietnam holiday
I would definitely recommend this tour and intend to do another one with this company....As a single traveller I particularly appreciated the fact that all the other members of the tour were extremely friendly and easy to get on with. (more)Marian Jenkins
Loved cycling in Hoi An and seeing the locals and water buffalo in the fields. The cookery class was hilarious and memorable for all the right reasons. (more)Loretta Ahmed
Most memorable part of the holiday was...everything. (more)Jack Kitchener
From £1062 - £1290 excluding flights

From £745 - £815 excluding flights
Cambodia & Vietnam explorer holiday
Fabulous! All was great. Cambodia's temples were amazing. (more)Dana Harland
It was a wonderful experience and gave me an insight to the beauty of countries of Indochina as well as its warm and delightful people...we visited local projects where we were able to either contribute financially or support by buying their produce. (more)Pat Alexander
Enjoy it! Don't take a jumper for the evening (August). Take extra money for all the tips: coach drivers, travel guides etc. (more)Chris Skelton
From £2195 - £2685 including domestic flights only
Indochina holiday adventure
Memorable parts? Treking through the jungle and then meeting a hill tribe in Laos - drinking local whisky with the "chief." Meeting other lowland tribes in Laos. These visits gave us an appreciation of how people live (very different to our own lives!) A day sailing down the Ou river into the Mekong river and another day sailing down the Sangker river in Cambodia. Visit to the Golden Triangle and a very enjoyable stay in Luang Prabang. Eating with fellow travellers, enabling us to sample... (more)Joyce Godfrey
From £2400 - £2600 including UK flights
Cambodia & Thailand holiday
Angor Wat temple is beautiful. It was amazing to see that almost one thousand year building in such a good shape. (more)Iwona Warszawska
The whole trip was brilliantly planned as we traversed through Cambodia, to a Thai Island, then to Bangkok without any hiccups anywhere. (more)Greg Bartlett
A few memorable moments are the temples at Angkor which revealed something new each day, the somewhat sobering experience of Tuol Sleng. (more)Michael Robinson
From £2450 - £2650 including UK flights
Cambodia six day tour
It was all good - I enjoyed meeting the group, the tour guide and also the different part of the holiday. The killing fields were thought provoking. The temples of Angor amazing in so many different ways. (more)Elizabeth Carmichael
Our group leader was very conscientious and knowledgeable, and was really keen to introduce us to his country. (more)Eleanor Attridge
Great trip, but action packed so plan a few days at the end to see things at your own pace (more)Caz Oatway
From £444 - £620 excluding flights
Cambodia & Laos holiday
We had so many experiences it is almost impossible to pick out the best. Our favourite place was Luang Prabang. (more)Pip Tregidgo
Most memorable? The Killing Fields and Limb fitting centre - both very real, the one very practical. Both gave some insight into the countries as they are today, and the struggles of those who live away from the tourist route. (more)John Parker

Cambodia Holidays and Cambodia Tours

Cambodia, officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a country of South East Asia bordered by Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. For some time, holidays to Cambodia were off limits after the terrible years of the Khmer Rouge rule. Today, however, it is testament to the Khmer people that, despite three dark decades of civil war, there is a pervading feeling of optimism and courage wherever you go – this is what makes holidays to Cambodia such an eye-opener. There is a wonderful range of rewarding Cambodia holidays that give you the opportunity to experience the country’s ancient temples, dense forests, glorious beaches and captivating culture. If you choose to holiday in Cambodia you may find yourself visiting one of the seven wonders of the world at the magical temples of Angkor Wat or absorbing the vibrant atmosphere of the country’s capital city, Phnom Penh, where there are endless things to see and do. You may find yourself on tour in Cambodia to learn about the Colonial heritage of Kep and Kampot, explore the natural wealth of Koh Kong and the Cardamom Mountains, or you may to choose a solitary holiday in Cambodia where you can relax on the southern beaches in Sihanoukville. When you are planning your Cambodia holiday there are a number of Cambodia trips and Cambodia tours that you may choose from, jam packed with exciting things to make the most of your Cambodia holiday. Tours of Cambodia can range from three day trips to Angkor Wat to weeks around the whole country, with options from honeymoons to backpacker adventure. With the blend of delightful people, fascinating history, delicious cuisine and a treasure trove of historical sites, your Cambodia holiday will be truly unforgettable.

Angkor Wat holidays and Angkor Wat Tours

Angkor Wat, meaning 'city temple', is a temple complex in Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II. in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. Listed as one of the seven wonders of the world, Angkor Wat is also the world's largest religious building and has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag. Therefore a trip to Cambodia is not complete without having an Angkor Wat holiday. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Wat contains the surviving remains of more than 100 stone temples of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire. Angkor Wat is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture, and is admired for its grandeur and harmony, making holidays to Angkor Wat a popular choice. Tour to Angkor Wat to see the temples' artistic carvings and stylish walls tower above the jungle and fill you with admiration and anticipation while letting the stone buildings reveal the stories of dynasties and their rule. An Angkor Wat tour will greatly benefit your experience as these large temples, in various states of ruin, are beautiful but you will quickly tire unless you understand their purpose, significance and history. Angkor Wat tours provide you with knowledge on routes, timing and crowd avoidance, nature and photography. The closest city to Angkor Wat is Siem Reap where Angkor Wat holidays begin. Siem Reap has an international airport as well as a wide selection of hotels and backpackers to cater for all guests. Because of the immense size of the site, tours to Angkor Wat are usually a minimum of three or four days which is just about long enough to fit in all the highlights of the Angkor area.

Cycling holidays in Cambodia

A cycling holiday in Cambodia allows you to travel like a local and experience Cambodia as if you live there. The trails of cycle tours in Cambodia take you off the beaten track and into the small villages and farming communities as well as taking you to see the major attractions. A cycling holiday in Cambodia is designed to engage you with your surroundings. Your holiday is enhanced by cycling, and your appreciation of the local environment is heightened by your cycling experience. There is a wonderful range of rewarding cycle tours in Cambodia ranging from 3 days where you may find yourself cycling among a thousand years of Khmer history at Angkor Wat, to 16 days which may lead you to journey across multiple countries of Indochina, from the busy streets of Bangkok to the shimmering paddy fields of Angkor. Depending on your abilities and personal preferences, there is a bike tour in Cambodia for everyone. You may enjoy the challenge of a 500kms cycle through the heart of the lush Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the dry lands of ancient Cambodia or you may prefer a leisurely journey to sample the cultural heritage and scenic highlights. Many cycle tours in Cambodia continue the tradition of pioneering cycle routes. What better way to explore the remote corners of the country than to undertake a cycling holiday in Cambodia.

Photography holidays in Cambodia

Cambodia is one of the most atmospheric and photogenic countries in South East Asia and a photography holiday in Cambodia is an excellent way to explore the best of what the country has to offer whilst learning more about the art of travel photography. When undertaking your photography holiday in Cambodia, you will find it is not hard to practice good photography in Cambodia. Firstly the iconic status of Angkor Wat and its surrounding temples is an obvious place to start but it is the juxtaposition of Cambodia's overlapping new and old worlds in the same frame that makes so many photographic scenes intriguing. There are a wonderful range of photography tours in Cambodia where you have the opportunity to capture the back drop of magnificent temples, the clutter of an urban environment trying to find its feet again or engaging portraits of people in a travel environment. Photography tours in Cambodia help participants understand the nature of good light, good composition and good subject matter in order to improve the over all strength of their Cambodia photography. You will also learn functions of the camera needed to make photography in Cambodia easier and more creative during and after your photography holiday in Cambodia.
