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

Learning to blend with the traffic in Phnom Penh & realising that pavements are not for walking on; sleeping overnight in Preah Kral Monastery; experiencing sunrise at Sra Srang, followed by a visit to the delightful Banteay Srei temple; taking a boat across the Tonle Sap Lake and along the Sangker River from Siem Reap to Battambang; hiking along paths through the jungle of Kep National Park (without a guide); being guided around Sambor Prei Kok by two charming local girls. All-in-all, far too many to mention!

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

Be prepared for an assault on your senses! And get there quick, before the authorities stop visitors walking around Angkor Wat.

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

Yes, being in a small group enabled us to interact with local people directly and to avoid staged mass meetings.

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

Excellent. This was our first time in Cambodia. We found it a fascinating country and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. There was an awful lot to take in and see and we were pleased to have visited parts of the country that are not on most tour itineraries. Towards the end of our two weeks we felt that we had acclimatised and, having come to the end of our ‘taster’ were ready to begin the tour proper; such a pity we then had to come home! It has given us a desire to return at some time, both to revisit some of the locations from this trip and to explore new ones.

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

Angor Wat temple is beautiful. It was amazing to see that almost one thousand year building in such a good shape.

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

Be prepared for dress code in temples. Thin long pants and T-shirt are must.

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

It did benefit local people for sure. With so many tourists around you can imagine that country in few years. People are friendly and hard working for the money.

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

This was amazing and very educational trip. I am so glad I have seen Cambodia and specially Angor Wat.
