ULTIMATE CAMBODIA – Nov 18th to 26th’ 2017
It might be one of Southeast Asia’s smallest countries, but Cambodia can compete with the big boys when it comes to must-see sights. Once the preserve of backpackers, this formerly war-torn nation is now firmly established on the Asia travel circuit. The crumbling remains of the Khmer Empire at Angkor Wat is the biggest draw in Cambodia, but that is just scratching the surface of the many beautiful places that this country has in store. After building up a kingdom that stretched into neighboring Thailand and China, the Khmers fell, leaving behind an extraordinary collection of temple complexes, most notably Angkor Wat, which owns the bragging rights to being the largest religious monument in the world. The temples of Angkor are, without a doubt, one of the most mesmerizing sights in Southeast Asia, but there is so much more to Cambodia than Angkor Wat.
See the awesome spires of Angkor Wat and the enchanting faces of the Bayon and get introduced to the mystery and wonder of some of the outer lying temples, and jungle-covered Ta Prohm. Explore palm-fringed beaches and picturesque rural landscapes and get a feel of rural Cambodia. Then there are more typical Southeast Asian attractions – frenetic cities crammed with rickshaws, strange and exotic food, blissful beaches and tropical jungles teeming with wildlife. See the floating villages at Kompong Phluk, experience the bustle of Phnom Phen, take a river cruise at Sleepy Kampot, laze on the beaches of Sihanoukville and much more on our unique Cambodian journey.
