Why should you holiday in Cambodia?

Cambodia is located in South-east Asia, bordering Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. It is a country with a fascinating history and home to some of the world’s most magnificent sights and attractions. It offers South-east Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap, lush landscapes along the Mekong River with rice fields, pepper and banana plantations, and, of course, the world-famous Angkor Wat.

Cambodia is perhaps especially associated with the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975–1979, but despite its bleak past, you will experience a hospitable people welcoming you to an eventful travel destination that offers a rich array of historical and cultural sights.

Our holidays to Cambodia

Read more below about the highlights that await you on one of our holidays.

Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat

In northern Cambodia, north of Siem Reap, you will find the Angkor complex, one of the most important archaeological sites in South-east Asia and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The complex includes Angkor Thom, which from the 12th–14th century was the capital of the Khmer empire, one of history’s greatest empires. In its heyday, the Khmer empire stretched from Vietnam in the east to Myanmar in the west, and the capital was home to between 750,000 and one million inhabitants. In Angkor Thom, you can, for example, visit the Bayon Temple, the 216 stone heads of which greet visitors with their enigmatic smiles.

South of Angkor Thom is the complex’s main attraction, Angkor Wat. It is one of Cambodia’s main attractions and the most splendid of all the temples of the Khmer empire. It is an architectural masterpiece from the 13th century, which is said to have taken 300,000 men and 6,000 elephants 37 years to build. Angkor Wat is a must-see on your tour to Cambodia.

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is Cambodia’s exuberant capital.

The city took a real beating during the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975–1979, but today the wide boulevards are buzzing again, the markets are a hive of activity, and new life has been breathed into the once badly damaged buildings.

However, the period has not been forgotten, and some of the city’s sights are from that time. Visit, for example, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, which was a torture prison under the regime, and Choeung Ek, also known as the “Killing fields”, where 17,000 people were murdered and thrown into mass graves. Some may find the visit a harsh experience, but they are an important part of Cambodia’s more recent history.

Fortunately, Phnom Penh also has some more “positive” attractions.

In the heart of the city, you can visit the Royal palace with its famous silver pagoda, the floor of which is laid with 5,000 tiles of pure silver. The building also houses a wonderful Buddha statue in gold, encrusted with more than 9,500 diamonds.

If you have any time left over, you can visit one of the local markets or explore the Cambodian cuisine at one of the many street kitchens, noodle bars or restaurants.

Mekong dolphins in Kratie

The Mekong River flows around 4,500 km through six countries, including Cambodia.

Situated by the Mekong River is the small town of Kratie, and most people travel here to catch a glimpse of the endangered Irrawaddy dolphins – the Mekong dolphin – which lives in the river in this area. The Irrawaddy dolphin has a very distinctive appearance due to its high, round forehead, and it doesn’t have a pointy nose like most other dolphins.

In addition to dolphins, this area offers the cosy little island of Koh Trong. The island has a beautiful landscape with rice fields, small villages and friendly locals. Experience a real island atmosphere here, where the traffic consists of bicycles, motorcycles, tuk tuks or ox-drawn carts.

Beach holiday in Cambodia

Combine your tour to Cambodia with a relaxing beach holiday – the perfect end to an adventure-packed tour. Relax on beautiful sandy beaches with swaying palm trees and turquoise waters.

Beach holiday on Koh Rong

In the Gulf of Thailand, off the coast of Cambodia, lies the small paradise island of Koh Rong.

Measuring a mere 78 km2, the island still manages to offer 43 kilometres of sandy beach! On the south-west side of the island is Sok San Beach, one of the island’s finest sandy beaches.

In addition to beautiful sandy beaches, Koh Rong is covered with lush, green jungle, which you can explore on foot via small paths. There is also ample opportunity for various water activities. For example, you can snorkel or dive among the colourful tropical fish and coral. Or you can rent a kayak and explore the shores of Koh Rong from the water.

Beach holiday in Kep

In south-west Cambodia is the charming coastal town of Kep, one of Cambodia’s best kept secrets.

In the colonial era, the town was a popular seaside resort for the French elite, but that all stopped when the Khmer Rouge took over the country in 1975.

Today, Kep is, however, finding its way back onto the map with its lovely beaches, French heritage and wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, and a stay at this charming coastal town is the perfect way to round off an eventful holiday.

Other highlights of Cambodia

Cambodia offers numerous interesting sights and attractions. On our tours, you can also experience the following:

  • In north-western Cambodia is Siem Reap, the gateway to Cambodia’s main attraction, the Angkor complex. But the city itself is cosy and laid-back, with shady avenues along the Siem Reap River, interesting markets, the famous Phare circus and a stunning sunset at either Phnom Bakheng or Pre Rup.
  • A visit to a village promises a fascinating encounter with a way life that is infinitely distant from the way we live in the UK. A village visit offers ample opportunity to meet the locals, both through participation in the village’s activities and also over a delicious lunch at the home of one of the local families. Please note that the tour is an optional excursion.
  • Tonle Sap Lake is South-east Asia’s largest freshwater lake. Every year, when the rainy season begins, the lake becomes inundated to cover an area of up to 10,000 km2 (a whopping three times bigger than in the dry season). Experience the small fishing villages where the houses stand on stilts in order to cope with the rising water levels, which also transform the streets in several of the villages into small canals.

Combine with Vietnam or Vietnam & Laos

Combine Cambodia with Vietnam or with Vietnam and Laos, which together make up the former Indochina.


In Vietnam, you will experience an unrivalled diversity, where UNESCO-protected nature and architecture, modern towns and cities, and beautiful beaches await you.

Among other things, you can look forward to:

  • Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, a city oozing atmosphere and contrasts, where you will discover a wonderful mix of beautiful colonial buildings and historical temples nestled among modern buildings.
  • Ha Long Bay is one of Vietnam’s biggest attractions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the bay, which covers an area of approximately 1,500 km2, green-clad limestone cliffs rise vertically into the air. Experience the bay from a traditional wooden boat.
  • In central Vietnam, you can discover the colonial town of Hoi An. Hoi An’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the town is one of the best-preserved historical towns in Asia as it escaped the bombing during the Vietnam War. Japanese, Chinese and Indian influences can also be seen in the building style.


In Laos, you will find the traditional, authentic Asia, where you will experience a relaxed atmosphere filled with Buddhist culture and traditions.

Luang Prabang is a former royal city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site today. The city is a unique blend of French colonial charm and traditional architecture. If you get up early, you will see hundreds of monks walking through the city streets to collect alms.

A little way outside Luang Prabang, you can visit the scenic Kuang Si Falls, where you can swim in the natural pools or visit the centre for Malay bears.
