Take a journey to remember as you explore the nuances of Cambodia’s culturally enriched landscape, a setting filled to the brim with beauty, history and charm all waiting to be discovered. From there, a visit to Vietnam is sure to whet the appetite for some more exploration before ending your trip amongst the wonders of Laos.
Immerse yourself in the warm and welcoming ambiance of Cambodia’s towns and cities where ancient buildings and old-world intricacies paint a story of the once prominent Khmer Empire and contrast against the advancement and modern splendour of Phnom Penh, the countries capital. Thought somewhat quieter and less populated than some of its neighbouring nations, Cambodia still has plenty to be discovered, with the legendary ruins of Angkor Wat, the iconic Bayon Temples and wondrous Ta Prohm just some of the highlights Siem Reap and the surrounding area hold.
From ancient civilisations to bustling streets, the contrast of atmosphere from Cambodia to Vietnam should be an invigorating experience. Historical landmarks like the War Remnants Museum and Cu Chi Minh Tunnels highlight life in the wartime era while the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica and Giác Lâm Pagoda are great examples of stunning architectural genius of differing yet prevalent religions in the region.
Once again, making the shift from the contemporary aspects of Southeast Asia, you return to the peaceful province of Laos, a place where monumental temples and architectural hotspots come together to entice avid adventurers the world over. Wat Si Saket temple, the Vat Phou ruins and the gold adorned stupa, Pha That Luang, are truly amazing sights to behold in this diverse country, and when combined with the laid-back lifestyle of the locals, few voyages seamlessly blend exploration and relaxation like this one.
Whether you’re looking for relaxation or adventure, Cambodia is a great choice for travellers looking to get the most out of their Asian holiday.
Gaze out across the waters of the Gulf of Thailand as you lie back on the soft sands of Sihanoukville, find your way through the bustling streets of Phnom Penh and relax in the resort town of Siem Reap for a truly rejuvenating experience.
Rich with culture and peppered with historical highlights, Cambodia is the perfect Southeast Asian destination for those with a lust for exploration and discovery.

Split between two differing seasonal patterns, Cambodia’s close proximity to the equator grants it a particularly tropical climate which, depending on the time of year, can set the tone for a perfect vacation or be unbearably humid.
The dry season lasts from November to March and can often be considered too hot for some, but the optimum weather proves to be a popular time for most to pay a visit to this Southeast Asian nation. The wet season which starts in April and continues on until October is sometimes referred to as the green season because of the vibrancy the rain brings out in the landscape, is considered off-peak and is usually makes for a more relaxed holiday experience away from the crowds of tourists.
The duration of your stay is more than 60 days, but don't worry that's fine. We just want to make sure you get the best possible price.
