Description of Cambodia six day tour

This six day Cambodia tour allows travellers to peer into the past with the all too recent atrocities highlighted within the museums and monuments of Phnom Penh and the ancient wonders of Angkor Wat remaining as testament to the one time Khmer Empire.

Spending time between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap gives you every chance to explore in your own time with plenty of optional activities and cultural insights to enable this Cambodia six day tour to really come to life.

From night markets and cooking courses to the faces adorning the Bayon and shadows forming during sunrise over Angkor Wat, this tour is the perfect answer for those looking to focus on Cambodia.

Small group adventure - Comfort trips

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Comfort trips, designed for travellers looking for more inclusions in their itinerary, a higher standard of accommodation and more focus on private vehicles over public transport.

Comfort trips are aimed at the adventure traveller who wants to discover the world up close, but with some creature comforts along the way. Dependent on the itinerary, there may still be a night multi-share accommodation (at a homestay for example), but this will be to ensure you don't miss out on a fantastic experience. Camping trips will usually stay in permanent, tented camps or some of the safari options may be lodge based.

You'll stay in predominantly 3 ½ star and above tourist class hotels with private, en suite facilities, although some itineraries will still include the opportunity to stay with a local family, spend a night on an overnight train or camp out somewhere amazing (without the hassle of putting up your own tent!).

You'll find a number of the meals are included (as per your itinerary) and when eating together we'll focus on smaller, often family run restaurants, often eating where the locals eat and ensuring that you are still getting an authentic travel experience.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia six day tour

On this trip you are joined by a leader throughout and local guides along the way who are always eager to share information about their country and culture, and help you break down barriers in your interactions with local people.

The ruins of Angkor are protected under UNESCO World Heritage listing and as such, part of the money received from entrance tickets contributes to the amazing site’s conservation. Your local guide will also give you plenty of guidance on what is appropriate when visiting the ruins and you will have the chance to interact with many of the local kids.

Travellers will have the option of visiting the land mine museum in Siem Reap and any donations are gratefully accepted. Also in Siem Reap, there is a local children’s hospital where the local kids put on a show on some nights. All money and blood donations are for the hospital and provide free services for children from the area.

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


Difficult to choose - the temples at Angkor were amazing but the optional trip to the Tonle Sap lake and floating village was equally memorable. The latter also took you away from mass tourism which was a welcome change.

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


Consider adding a day at the beginning and/or end of the tour. You'll have a chance to settle in at the beginning so it doesn't feel rushed and at the end you can spend the extra day back at Angkor (you get a 3-day pass but only use 2 on the tour) or taking an optional excursion - as we did.

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


The meals included in the tour were all at training restaurants where local people were learning skills and good practice in different aspects of catering and hospitality. The standards were very high. Our guide was particularly keen to emphasise the use of local expertise and the emphasis on supporting environmental projects.

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


Excellent! Cambodia is a great place to visit and we were looked after with great care and attention - and had lots of laughs.

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.

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


Comfortable walking shoes, plenty of water and you can fly out of Seim Reap to many destinations.

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


Yes. We visited home restaurants and ones where the local children were given instruction. We used tuktuk's and local bus companies.

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


Very comfortable, safe and enjoyable. The tour guide was approachable and knowledgeable and gave us detailed descriptions of the temples.

The Halong Bay cruise and the cycle trip in Ho Chi Minh City. The food was also great. Travelling with a really nice, mixed group of people.

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


I would recommend that people did the trip south to north rather then north to south as it is very hectic, and the heat was quite oppressive - the Halong Bay cruise was a really nice way to relax at the end of the trip.

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


I felt it benefitted local people in that we were spending money in local restaurants and shops. We also visited the KOTO restaurant which gives street children training in the catering industry.

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


The trip gives you a really good introduction to Vietnam. It would have been interesting to spend some time in rural areas as the holiday is primarily based in big cities, but I guess this will be something to do on another trip rather than on a whistle-stop tour. Our group leader was very conscientious and knowledgeable, and was really keen to introduce us to his country.

A few things - at Angkor Bayon temple, I loved the faces in the towers. In Phonm Penh the trip to the genocide museum is pretty tough going but has to be seen

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


Take up the optional activities - the trips to Tonle sap and the village tour were brilliant

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


Yes

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


Great trip, but action packed so plan a few days at the end to see things at your own pace

It is impossible to say in just one or two sentences. The people of Cambodia are incredible; however, the local guides that we had were wonderful as well as Tracey our "facilitator". As sad as it was the Tuol Sleng prison, the Killing Fields and the Land Mine Museum brought to light the terrible suffering the Cambodian people went through under the Khmer Rouge period and also shed light on the people who still suffer today. Now for the good part: the Temples at Angkor Wat - I want to come back to see more! Sunrise at Angkor Wat, the Jungle Temples! Shopping at the Russian Market, the Silk Farm, the children who I met in the streets, watching monkeys running around Wat Phnom, riding tuk tuks, watching one of the members of our group eat a fried tarantula.

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


Be prepared for the heat. Take sturdy walking shoes. My Buzz Off clothing from Ex Officio really helped keep off the mosquitoes or else buy the citronella spray available there - it works well too. Also buy the electrolytes available in the pharmacies - tastes like Tang. Take tons of pictures but be polite about it and ask permission. Every time I bought something, I asked if I could take the seller's picture and they always agreed. It made my purchase memorable. Oh, and bring along $100 worth of $1 bills and lots of $5 bills the new ones with no tears!!!!

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


Absolutely, we always went to restaurants that were run by Cambodian people who did charitable things like take care of street kids, teaching them English or that benefited orphanages or trained street kids to be chefs or servers. I had wanted to go to these places anyway and Tracey made sure that our optional dinners always included these restaurants. Since this was the "Comfort" Cambodian 6 day trip, our hotel was more luxurious but I had a limited time factor (Spring break at my university), otherwise I would have chosen a more minimized impactful holiday since we had airconditioning and pool.

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


Super, I learned lots of things and next time, I feel that I can return on my own for a longer period

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


Without a doubt, the Temples at Angkor.

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


Bring a passport photo (for your Angkor pass) and plenty of mosquito repellent!

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


Yes & no : more care maybe over the choice of hotels. I'm sure most people choosing this trip would sacrifice some comfort for the sake of benefiting a local enterprise (rather than a large company, even if Cambodian).
