Cambodia country tour
Description of Cambodia country tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWith no domestic flights included, travelling by car, foot, and cyclo means that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum, whilst offering the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and striking history of Cambodia from a relaxing and personal perspective.
Staying in a portable safari tent in areas of stunning natural beauty for two nights of your trip reduces your carbon footprint, compared to staying in hotels, as well as offering a chance to reach lesser known areas and ruins away from the main tourist route.
You have a few days at leisure to discover sleepy towns by foot or bicycle, rather than additional touring days be car.
Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and reducing plastic waste. We are working together with them and the local guides to offer refillable water bottles and reduce offers of other single-use items such as wet wipes or straws on a more widespread basis.
PeopleOn the ground in Cambodia we use a local, family-owned agent who demonstrates care for the environment, preservation of their culture and commitment to the community as well as providing employment opportunities for many local people throughout the country.
Angkor Wat is one of the very important world heritage sites in Southeast Asia but sadly much of the majestic complex is in a state of disrepair and ruin. The entrance fee, which is included in the cost of your trip, goes to the very much needed conservation, restoration and upkeep of the site.
We recommend buying crafts, home wares and gifts from selected organizations that we can suggest so you can help support local communities and their skills and you also know that your money is directly benefiting the local economy.
There are many wonderful restaurants that we have patronised during our visits to Cambodia and can recommend to you but they also benefit the community in numerous ways. One we recommend is Epic Arts Café in Kampot, which supports a number of projects for the disadvantaged communities in the area and is linked to the Music School that you visit. There are also many cafés and restaurants which are training schools; they offer scholarships to underprivileged young Cambodians, giving the training they need to join the hospitality industry helping them ensure a brighter future.
