Description of Laos and Cambodia adventure holiday

The UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang is your gateway to Laos, a place of cultural depths and wonderful landscapes ranging from lush hills dotted with tea and coffee plantations to the stunning “4000 islands” region. This often overlooked country retains a traditional character and charm that makes it one of Southeast Asia's most enjoyable destinations.

The mighty Mekong River provides an unforgettable liquid thread drawing together Laos and neighbouring Cambodia – as well as a chance to cruise in search of Irrawaddy dolphins and ride riverside cycle paths through the fascinating rural villages of the Kratie region.

Siem Reap is your base for the magnificent temple complexes of Angkor, before finishing in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s riverside capital, to delve Cambodia’s modern history as well as its characterful colonial past. Along the way, there'll be plenty of chance to meet friendly locals and savour some of Asia's most striking food – though only the brave may wish to try fried tarantula!

Responsible Travel

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.

Planet and people

Three decades of war in Cambodia have left scars in many forms throughout the country. Unfortunately, one of the most lasting legacies of the conflicts continues to claim new victims daily. Land mines, laid by the Khmer Rouge, the Heng Samrin and Hun Sen regimes, the Vietnamese, the KPNLF, and the Sihanoukists litter the countryside. In most cases, even the soldiers who planted the mines did not record where they were placed. Now, Cambodia has the one of the highest rates of physical disability of any country in the world. While census data for Cambodia is sketchy, it is generally accepted that more than 40,000 Cambodians have suffered amputations as a result of mine injuries since 1979.

That represents an average of nearly forty victims a week for a period of twenty years. We are proud to support 2 NGO’s dedicated to helping eradicate this problem. The first, Adopt-a-minefield is an NGO that saves and improves lives by raising funds to clear landmines and help landmine survivors in various places and around the world. The second organisation is the Mines advisory group (MAG), is an international implementing NGO for the MAT Project in Quang Binh Province. MAG clears and destroys the landmines and left-over weapons that make areas unsafe after war. Each Mines Advisory Group mobile Mine Action Team (MAT) removes the burden of mine disposal from the local villagers and provides immediate assistance in the removal of all reported items from within household areas, villages and communities.

By incorporating home-stays, locally owned hotels, restaurants and the services of guides into our itineraries, we ensure that money goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism. We also supports emergency relief efforts in the areas we travel to, such as the Pakistan Earthquake Fund set up in 2005 and a variety of other community benefiting NGOs around the world.
