Private Tours & Luxury Holiday In Cambodia
Cambodia’s history comprises both the greatest aesthetic feats and the most heinous crimes of humanity since the country is best known for both the massive temples of Angkor Wat and the violent Khmer Rouge days of the 1970s and later civil war.
Visitors are usually drawn to Cambodia by its rich history, but there is much more to see in this Southeast Asian country than just the temples of Siem Reap. Its charm extends far beyond the country’s many temples. The locals genuinely enjoy the company of tourists, and the atmosphere is warm and friendly to all visitors. Whether you’re planning to stay in one of the many luxurious eco-lodges by the forest edge or explore the bustling outdoor markets, you’ll always feel at home in this welcoming city known for its friendly locals, delicious seafood, and warm hospitality.
Sun worshippers can’t resist the allure of the coast’s white sand beaches in Cambodia. The metropolis of Phnom Penh, which is Cambodia’s bustling capital, immerses visitors in the frantic pulse of modern Cambodian city life, while the countryside, which is covered in thick jungle, caters to the more daring travellers.
Whether you prefer to walk through the paths of the Khmers, venture into wilder terrains, get lost in the streets of Siem Reap, or explore the temples of Angkor Wat, we can plan a multi-day trip for you that takes you across the country’s mountainous regions, bustling metropolises, as well as its rural heartlands. Let us plan your dream vacation in Cambodia with a custom-designed itinerary.
Highlights Of Cambodia
These are some of the places we would choose for our holiday in Cambodia. If you don’t see your desired attraction here, just know that we can still plan it for you.
The second largest city in Cambodia, Siem Reap, is bursting at the seams with everything from chic hotels, wine and dining establishments serving a variety of cuisines, luxurious spas, fantastic shopping, exciting local experiences that cater to both foodies and adventurers, and a vibrant arts and culture scene that features Cambodia’s premier contemporary circus.
Although Siem Reap is best known as the gateway to Cambodia’s Angkor Archaeological Park, it is also home to a variety of attractions and activities that make it one of the country’s must-see destinations. A wide variety of exciting experiences, from bike rides through the verdant countryside just outside of town to lessons in traditional Cambodian cuisine, can all be found in this major hotspot. Before exploring Angkor Wat, it is recommended that you stop at the Angkor National Museum to learn more about the Temple’s history. It also offers many aspects of Khmer art and culture in this museum.
Angkor Wat can be found around five miles north of modern Siem Reap in Cambodia. At the time of the Khmer dynasty’s rule, it was one of the largest cities in the world. With time, the city’s wooden structures began to deteriorate as the surrounding jungle encroached upon them.
The most popular attraction here is the Temple, which is actually only a small part of the larger city, and it takes around three days to see all of the remarkable structures built by the Angkorian civilization. Other attractions are the Bayon Temple with its 216 stone-carved faces, the Angkor Thom and Preah Khan citadels, and the tree-root-encircled Temple of Ta Prohm, made famous by the filming of Tomb Raider.
Tonle Sap Lake
Tonle Sap Lake is Cambodia’s most important waterway and the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. There is a thriving ecosystem in this body of water, which is also known as the Boeung Tonle Sap. In addition to being an essential component of Cambodia’s irrigation system and a significant source of food, the lake serves as the home of 170 floating villages, the inhabitants of which make their living from fishing and whose houses are built directly on the surface of the lake.
All of the homes, stores, churches, schools, and temples in these communities rest atop rudimentary buoy foundations made from lashed-together barrels and bamboo. A visit to Tonle Sap Lake is a worthwhile way to experience rural Khmer culture as well as one of the most ecologically diverse lakes in the world. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed.
Koh Kong Conservation Corridor
The Cardamom Mountains are known for their spectacular beauty, and they serve as the crown jewel of the Koh Kong Conservation Corridor, a pure natural rainforest zone that spans all the way through the southwestern section of Cambodia, on the Thai border, to the coast, where the island of Koh Kong lies offshore.
Bears, tigers, crocodiles, and elephants all call the Koh Kong Conservation Corridor home. It is one of the last few remaining unspoiled rainforests in Southeast Asia. The foggy lakes and tunnels provide a safe haven for endangered animals. You can also take in the unrivalled scenery from one of the many floating river lodges available. The mountains of the Koh Kong Conservation Corridor undoubtedly have an otherworldly aspect, particularly when compared with the rest of the metropolitan, war-torn Cambodia, and areas disregarded for conservation.
