Description of Cambodia holiday, small group tour

Our Cambodia holiday is a small group tour but one that explores an itinerary off the traditional tourist trail, after having a couple of days in the capital of Phnom Penh. From here we head into the jungles of the Mondulkiri region with stays at eco lodges, Mekong River trips to see Irrawaddy dolphins, spend time in rural Cambodian communities and visit the Elephant Valley Project.

We visit some spectacular temples on this trip and, as well as spending the last few days at Siem Reap to see the country’s most famous complex at Angkor Wat, you will have a chance to see lesser known marvels such as Preah Vihear. Clinging to a cliff in the Dangrek Mountains, we walk up to its highest levels to take in the most wonderful views.

Walking and cycling is a regular feature on this holiday with chances to explore the Mekong island of Koh Rong and also around the Roulos group of temples at Siem Riep by bike. Because even around Siem Reap we manage to get off the busy tourist trail, with one final stop at Kompong Khleang - one of the least visited villages on the Tonle Sap Lake. All in all, we have endeavoured to create an itinerary that shows you Cambodia’s wildlife and everyday life, portraits and landscapes, secret spots and spectacular sites.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia holiday, small group tour

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. For further details please visit www.landmines.org.uk 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.

When you take one of our Indo China holidays, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.

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.
