Cambodia Holidays

From Angkor’s spectacular temples to the indomitable Mekong River, Cambodia holidays are a beguiling journey into history, culture and ancient ruins.

Travel deep on Cambodia holidays into six centuries of Khmer Empire history and incredible sandstone temples. Just outside Siem Reap, the most famous of all is the colossal 12th century Angkor complex. Discover a world where monks beat drums at sunrise and silk-cotton trees and craggy vines wind their way around ornate carvings of apsara dancers and nymphs. You can see Angkor Wat’s major sites in a day but allow a couple more to visit Angkor Thom and the outlying jungle temples.

Over 300 kilometres away, tuk-tuks and street food trucks rub shoulders with faded colonial architecture in capital city, Phnom Penh. Here, you’re as likely to be enjoying cold beers and sticky rice banana wraps as you are chasing tranquility at the Royal Palace of Cambodia. Unlock the secrets of Khmer cuisine during a cookery class and boat hop over to the silk-weaving village on Koh Dach before a sunset Mekong cruise and a Long Margarita at Rosewood’s Sora Sky Bar.

We’ll give you the full experience of one of South East Asia’s most incredible destinations on our tailormade Cambodia holidays.
