The Angkor Wat temples are so incredible that Cambodia put them on their national flag. Stare into the eyes of serene stone faces, leap over roots that have burst through ruins, and watch the sunrise over a spire-strewn horizon. But on this trip, we show you there’s more to Cambodia than the temples. Discover the beautiful beaches of Koh Rong Samloem, learn about the country’s difficult history at the S-21 Prison, and taste some delicious cuisine at a local social enterprise restaurant that trains local street youth in hospitality. Go beyond the temples and discover the culture, cuisine, and curiosities of Cambodia.
Your adventure begins in Phnom Penh, where you’ll meet your awesome Busabout guide and fellow passengers! We start the tour off by delving into the darker history of Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge, with an included excursion to visit the infamous S-21 Prison and Killing Fields. We then spend the afternoon exploring this dynamic city. See the the towering Independence Monument, visit the Royal Palace complex and stroll through the gardens, or relax in one of the city’s many fine cafes. There’s a tonne to see and do, so get out there! Tonight we head out to Romdeng Restaurant, a Tree Alliance member, for a delicious optional traditional dinner (including deep fried tarantula for the brave at heart!). Afterwards the night is yours, so head back and get some sleep or join us at a few of our favourite bars for an epic first night.
Farewell Phnom Penh! Today we head to the idyllic riverside town of Kampot. Upon arrival we’ll make our way to a local pepper farm where we learn about the famous Kampot pepper! Here you can also go for a refreshing swim and take some #instaworthy pics in an infinity pool. Your friends back home are gonna be jealous! This evening we have an optional sunset cruise on the river to soak up the pristine natural beauty of Cambodia. (B)
We’ll make our way west to Sihanoukville and spend the day relaxing at the stunning Otres Beach. Pamper yourself with a massage and swing in a hammock whilst sipping a refreshing cocktail. This is the life, huh? We’ll head back in the late afternoon to prepare for a night to remember in Sihanoukville. (B)
Today we make our way to Koh Rong Samloem on an included boat trip to enjoy a day of relaxation on this idyllic island! Relax on the white sand beaches, go for a refreshing swim, or get active and play a game of beach volleyball. Stress just doesn’t exist in a place like this! In the late afternoon we’ll head back to the mainland. Join us for an optional beachside BBQ dinner, before going out for a couple of drinks to round off the day. (B, L)
This morning we hop on the coach to take the road north to Battambang. Late afternoon marks our arrival on the banks of the Sangkae River and the city of Battambang! Join us for an optional visit to the Battambang Circus, and witness the rich Khmer culture through the lens of performance art. When our bellies are rumbling, we’ll visit a local restaurant for an included dinner of traditional Khmer food. Tuck in! (B, D)
Gear up for the included bike tour through the Cambodian countryside! We’ll visit local homes, learn about the livelihoods of the local community, and enjoy the relaxing pace of village life. After this enlightening morning, we’ll then continue our journey to the ever-popular gateway of the Angkor region, Siem Reap. We’ll arrive in the early afternoon and get checked in, before checking out the sights on an orientation walk. The night is yours to enjoy, so head out to Pub Street and let the party kick off! (B)
Set the alarm early today if you don’t want to miss the opportunity to see the sunrise over ancient Angkor Wat! Join us for our optional sunrise excursion to explore this majestic location. After you’ve seen the sunrise over the world’s largest religious monument, you’ll see Bayon Temple, the centrepiece of the ancient royal city of the Khmer Empire, Angkor Thom. See the ”Tomb Raider” temple and Terrace of the Elephants all from the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle safe in the care of an expert local guide. It’s our final night together, so later on we’ll hit the town and go out in style! (B)
