Cultural holidays in Cambodia

Cultural holidays in Cambodia

Cambodia’s culture encompasses so much more than just its ancient temples. The Khmer people are warm, friendly – and with a cuisine unlike any other in Southeast Asia; while remote hill tribes have preserved their unique traditions for centuries. Our cultural holidays in Cambodia are an introduction to this country’s culture – past and present – from the Killing Fields to paddy fields, floating villages to hill tribe homestays.

Mekong adventure holiday, Laos & Cambodia
Memorable parts? Every day was something different, we walked through jungle; rode elephants; explored caves and sailed in wooden boats, sometimes we used a wooden plank, sometimes we were knee deep in the river! We saw amazing temples and wooden huts that the locals lived in, we saw how people lived and how they dried peppers in their satellite dishes! There were sad parts too, understanding the legacy of the Vietnam war, unexploded bombs everywhere and maimed people. However, the people... (more)Colin Smith
From £3000 - £3200 including UK flights
Cambodia six day tour
Excellent! Cambodia is a great place to visit and we were looked after with great care and attention - and had lots of laughs. Our guide was particularly keen to emphasise the use of local expertise and the emphasis on supporting environmental projects. (more)Richard Evans
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
From £590 - £810 excluding flights
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 £402 - £605 excluding 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 £2100 - £2300 including UK flights
Cambodia travel photography tour
The perfect holiday. (more)Susanne Kempf
Excellent, memorable, wonderful. (more)liz mcmanus
From £2325 excluding flights
Cambodia holidays, Phnom Penh & Angkor
Tourism is an important employer in Cambodia so our staying in small hotels and using local guides, river boats, the bamboo train etc were all supportive. (more)Andrew Whitrow
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
From £1000 - £2050 including UK flights
Cambodia country tour, temples & sea
Truly amazing holiday. Great, knowledgeable guides. Lovely people...All memorable, an amazing country. (more)Trisha Burdett
Great holiday that included history, temples, people, animals and as little motorized travel as possible. (more)Elke MacGregor
From £995 excluding flights
Cambodia tailor made holiday
Memorable parts? How to decide between so many great moments. It must have been either the cooking class or the circus. But generally, as cliched as it is, the best part were the people. Both our wonderful guides and the others we met. So friendly and releaxed, not as in your face as in other Asian countries I visited. Tips? When you visit the Killing Fields, also visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. The two sites belong together to grasp the history of the country, and can easily... (more)Gerhard Kordmann
From £790 - £1650 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 £695 - £855 including domestic flights only
Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City
Excellent...Angkor Wat was the memorable part. (more)Elodie Maria Sube

From £444 - £585 excluding flights
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 £2160 - £2360 including UK flights
Cambodia & Vietnam holiday

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 £2365 - £2565 including UK flights

From £1450 - £2250 excluding flights
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 £2500 - £2700 including UK flights

Loved tasting the local foods and the lunch in the jungle. Some lovely lunches and evening meals shared in local restaurants that we would never have found on our own. (more)Helen Scholes
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

From £1025 - £1075 excluding flights
Cambodia holiday, culture & coast
Memorable parts? There were many memorable moments but the temples were definitely a high point. Tips? Definitely go for the option of having your own driver - makes everything much easier. Local benefits? Yes as tourism is putting much needed money into Cambodia and local people were used by the company as guides etc. Overall rating? 8 out of 10. (more)Pauline Sieler
From £3650 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 £1995 - £2645 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 £2450 - £2650 including UK flights
Indochina small group adventure holiday
Memorable parts? The Angkor temples - If this was just one temple it would probably not be as majestic, but the plethora of temples, their architecture and engineering and the area they cover is simply breathtaking! Tips? It's a trip easily coordinated on your own and you do not need to pay an agency premium for it, unless you are pressed for time. Allow at least 3 days in Angkor. Try flying as much as you can and avoid road travelling as the roads and driving are rather bad - spoiling... (more)Yianna Loizou
