What Our Clients Say About Us
Places to visit in Cambodia
The remains of the Khmers' last great city, Angkor Thom, stand just north of Angkor Wat, enclosed by massive laterite walls and a broad moat. From its centre soars the central sanctuary tower of the mighty Bayon temple, which is perhaps be...
The greatest of all the shrines created by the Khmers – in fact, the single largest religious building anywhere in the world – is Angkor Wat. Dedicated to Vishnu (the Hindu deity of whom King Suryavarman II considered himself a reincarnati...
Made of salmon-hued sandstone, Banteay Srei, 17 miles (27km) north of Angkor Wat, impresses less by its scale than the great artistry of its carvings. Delicately sculpted scenes from Hindu mythology embellish the ornate shrines of the temp...
One of the most scenic drives in Cambodia leads from Siem Reap to Battambang, on the banks of the Sangker River. This venerable old city holds a bumper crop of colonial-era architecture, ranging from antique shophouses in the market distri...
Kampong Cham is a city with an interesting past due to its trading importance during the French period. The buildings reflect this cultural exposure and the atmosphere differs to other cities in Cambodia. It acts as a good base for explori...
The city of Kampong Thom is a bustling and commercial destination to visit. Across the Stung Sen River spans the old French bridge and a new steel bridge from 1997 which was built with Australian assistance. In terms of monuments and cult...
By far the loveliest most relaxing coastal retreat in the country is Kep, a town originally founded by the French in 1906, and which has since become popular among wealthy city dwellers, who travel here on weekends in search of the famous ...
Once a thriving French cargo port on the Mekong river, Kratie is now a rather somnolent, backwater market town, fronted by a pot-holed promenade and ranks of buttress-rooted dipterocarp trees. Travellers tend to pause here en route to Lao...
Lake Tonle Sap
The largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, Tonle Sap, due south of Siem Reap, supports a population of over a million people, the majority of whom live from rice cultivation and fishing, in stilted or floating villages around its shore...
As the most sparsely populated province in Cambodia it is difficult not to feel relaxed and a million miles away from the stresses of modern life in Mondulkiri. To the west, visitors find rolling hills carpeted in lush forestation, which g...
Phnom Kulen National Park
For a total change of atmosphere, we recommend a trip along the bumpy road leading north from Angkor for an hour and a half to the forested Phnom Kulen hills, a tract of steep-sided, table-top mountain where the Khmers founded the ancient ...
The Cambodian capital doesn’t feel in quite so much of a rush to embrace the future as its counterparts elsewhere in Southeast Asia. High-rise buildings are beginning to spring up, but they’re still outnumbered by colonial-era shophouses a...
The wild, sparsely populated and mountainous province of Mondulkiri in the far northeast of the country is famous primarily for its diminishing population of wild elephant, who roam in the region’s extensive forests. Although perennially ...
Sihanoukville, aka ‘Kompong Som’, was dug out of the jungle in the late-1950s to create the country’s first deep-water port, which Cambodia needed so its trade could bypass neighbouring Vietnam. Since then, however, the four beaches scallo...
Elephant Valley Project
Glimpses of elephant roaming wild in the forests of Southeast Asia are exceedingly rare. But a wonderful eco-tourism project near Sen Monorom offers the next best thing. In partnership with local Bunong (Pnong) mahouts and their families, ...
