1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The whole trip is something I will remember for a lifetime for all the right reasons, the people, the places, the adventure.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take it for what it is, don't expect 5* luxury and don't expect to be waited on hand & foot, it's an adventure, take every day as it comes and expect the unexpected, eat with the locals, laugh with the locals and don't take yourself too seriously. Our photographic guide will be a friend for years to come. Ohh and don't expect to come home nice and refreshed as if you have had a beach holiday, take an extra couple of days to recover!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I believe so, all local companies & people used for accommodation, travel and food with exception of the main flights.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

10 of of 10, now got to start saving for the next one.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I will admit that the main (only?) reason I booked this trip was to visit Angkor Wat and a photography tour that included the main temples at Angkor suited my requirements. I am pleased to say that sunrise at Angkor Wat was as spine tingling as I had hoped. However, this trip was so much more than Angkor Wat.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This trip would suit a novice photographer, as there was plenty of opportunity for playing with camera settings and practising new skills. Bring your instruction manual so you know how to change these settings! The tour leader provided some theory sessions to help get you started, and these were conducted during the heat of the day when taking pictures is least favourable. However, the more advanced photographer will not be disadvantaged, as there is time to explore at your leisure.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Where possible, we used local services.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Before this trip, I was very reluctant to take pictures of people, and those that I had tried were not very natural. The people of Cambodia were so friendly and so relaxed about having their photo taken that it was a pleasure to be in their company. This helped me relax and the charm of the locals is evident in my photos. Without exaggeration, this trip has caused me to rethink my photography as well as my holidays in general.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Making our way to Angkor Wat early morning whilst still dark and standing by the reflecting pool waiting for dawn. As the sky gradually lit up we were able to pick out the shape of Angkor Wat and focused our cameras as the sky gradually lit up - very exciting. Also to be with Nathan (who took the photography group) who was on hand to enable us to get some good shots!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take plenty of memory cards for your camera and enjoy talking to the locals.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Hopefully in a small way.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

First rate for a photographic holiday - I learnt lots and very helpful being with a professional photographer who lived there and knew the local language and the best places to go to.
