Description of Cambodia tour, small group

This 12-day tour gives a fascinating insight into Cambodia, with the chance to experience neighbouring Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Bangkok in Thailand, too, famed for their street food and rich history. Explore Cambodia’s bustling capital Phnom Penh, relax on the palm-fringed beaches of Sihanoukville, enjoy a guided visit to the ancient Angkor ruins and discover the laidback charm of the Khmer.

Travelling by private mini-van and public bus, you journey from big cities to rural Cambodia, with a homestay in the village of Chambok the perfect chance to learn about local life and sample excellent Khmer cooking.

Confronting Cambodia’s sobering Khmer history is an important feature of any trip, so we recommend a visit to the Choeung Ek Memorial, which is the site of the Killing Fields. Balance this by stopping off at the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, the Mekong riverfront, mysterious Wat Phnom and the vibrant markets, grabbing some tasty street food while you’re there.

Nature-lovers and adventurous folk will be in their element with two days on the coast at Sihanoukville and stays in rural villages. Opt to ride a zip-line over the rainforest, explore the mangrove forests in Ream National Park, take a Khmer cooking class or try some kitesurfing. This great-value trip has plenty of choice built into the itinerary, perfect for travelers who relish some independence.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia tour, small group

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

On this no frills journey through Cambodia, you’ll stay in small, locally owned, fairly basic hotels with one nights’ accommodation at a rural homestay. Our focus on this trip is to give travellers a genuine, real life experience and so this isn’t an organised tour in the most traditional sense. As well as staying in accommodation reflective of the local area, we’ll travel quite a lot using local public transport; including our journey to Phnom Penh over the Vietnam / Cambodia border and on our journey to Siem Reap. You’ll have lots of free time to tailor your days to your own interests (it’s your holiday not ours!), and be accompanied by an English speaking local guide who will be on hand to help you with any arrangements or activities you might want to do.

Travelling in this way not only gives travellers a great independent holiday experience with the safety net of a group and leader, but it’s also very effective at directing the money created by our tourism straight into the pockets of the communities we are visiting. We support the smaller businesses; from the family run restaurants we visit throughout the trip, to small local companies like the one hiring out bikes in Kompong Cham, the cyclo operators in Phnom Penh and the traditional Khmer cooking class in Siem Reap.

When travelling through South East Asia, we encourage our travellers to dress conservatively and respect the culture, particularly outside the major cities where more traditional values are dominant. For example, knees and shoulders should be covered particularly when visiting temples and places of religious significance. This is another of the areas that your guide will come into their own offering advice and guidance as you go.

As well as being aware of cultural sensitivities, we are also very conscious of the potential environmental impact of our trip. Our use of local transport reduces our carbon impact somewhat, but we know that isn’t enough. As a carbon neutral company for a number of years we offset all of the ground emissions of our passengers travelling with us. On this particular trip, that equates to 113kg offset per passenger, per departure.

Throughout your trip you will be encouraged to take steps to ensure that your journey is environmentally responsible as possible. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with the appropriate disposal of rubbish en route, recycling wherever possible. We also encourage all our travellers to use refillable water bottles rather than purchasing regular supplies of bottled water.

The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. Once discarded a large proportion of these end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments and we believe that their use should be discouraged.
