Angkor Wat, Siem Reap

Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is, quite simply, one of the most splendid attractions in all of South East Asia. Largely lost to the jungle for hundreds of years, then 'rediscovered' by western explorers Angkor is easily on a par with sites like the Taj Mahal, the Pyramids of Giza, and Machu Pichu. As well as Angkor Wat there are many oher temples to explore such as Angkor Thom, the Bayon, and Ta Prohm. The varying character, mystical romance, and extravagant beauty of the Angkor temples will leave a strong and lasting impression...

The Royal Palace, Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh's Attractions

Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, sits on the banks of the Tonle Sap river at the confluence of two other rivers, the Bassac and the mighty Mekong, and it holds an undeniable charm, once being known as 'The Paris of the East'. After a traumatic recent history Phnom Penh is now thriving with new hotels, restaurants, shops and bars opening up throughout the city. Exploring Phnom Penh's attractions such as the Royal Palace and the National Museum is a relaxing experience, but also an emotional one with visits to Toul Sleng and the 'Killing Fields' of Choeung Ek.

Irrawady dolphin, Kratie

Irrawaddy Dolphins - Kratie

The Irrawaddy dolphins of the Mekong River are a must-see for anyone visiting the laid back town of Kratie – famed for its faded colonial architecture. These rare and endangered freshwater dolphins (there are now less than 100) are shy creatures and not as playful as their seawater cousins, however saying that they are surprisingly easy to spot as their 2-3 metre long bodies break the surface of the water as they come up for air. Being out on the Mekong with these delightful creatures as the sun begins to set is a magical experience…

Apsara Dancers, Cambodia

Apsara Dance

Dancing holds a great significance in the lives of Khmer people, and no visit to Cambodia would be complete without experiencing a captivating performance of the ancient Apsara dance. After being awed by the Apsara carvings on the Angkor temples you will be mesmerized as you watch the beautiful live Apsaras. Dressed in skin-tight silk tunics embellished with gold and silver thread, barefoot but wearing ornate headdresses and with outstretched arms, the dancers perform with incredible grace to a backdrop of gongs, drums, xylophones, horns and stringed instruments.

All our tours can include an evenings Apsara Dance show.

Koh Sompoch beach

Cambodia's South Coast Islands

Cambodia’s islands have managed to preserve their peace as the beaches of Sihanoukville become more popular. Spend time lazing in a hammock, stroll along near deserted beaches, have a fish barbeque with the sea lapping at your feet. For that true Robinson Crusoe feel spend a night and have the beach to yourself as the sun sets. After dark take a swim and be treated to an awesome lightshow, at certain times of year the natural phosphor in the sea sparkles with millions of tiny lights, competing with the starry skies above. Finally, fall asleep with the gentle lullaby of the waves as the cool ocean breeze slips through your cabin…

Floating villages on the Tonle Sap

Tonle Sap Floating Villages Cruise

The Tonle Sap is South East Asia’s largest lake and a cruise on it is possibly one of the most fascinating journeys you can take in Cambodia! You pass an amazing variety of landscapes and lives, seemingly unchanged for hundreds of years. Witnessing floating villages is a captivating experience; floating petrol stations, fish farms, floating restaurants, floating hairdressers and amazingly, floating pig sties. Men fish and repair vessels or extend their houses, women cook and wash up in kitchens at the sterns of the boats/homes, and children leap from rickety wooden porches to splash around for your (and their) entertainment...

Preah Vihear

Preah Vihear Temple

Preah Vihear temple sitting on the peak of a 650m escarpment is a stunning place and probably the most impressive Khmer historical site after Angkor Wat. Straddling the Cambodia / Thai border in the far north of the country this quite magnificent temple is older than Angkor Wat being built on a long established holy site, and taking more than 200 years to complete. The temple is over 900m in length and climbs 100m in height through five separate stages before culminating in the massive bulk of the main sanctuary perched high on the cliff top. Unforgettable...

Battambong rivefront

Battambang & surrounding countryside

Battambang and the surrounding area give a taste of ‘real’ Cambodia, unaffected by mass-tourism. Battambang is a relaxed and laid back town sitting on the banks of the picturesque Sangker River, and is famed for its fading French colonial architecture. The countryside surrounding Battambang is quite beautiful with the Angkorian era ruins of Phnom Banan and Wat Ek Phnom, caves, waterfalls, mountain viewpoints, and many local villages where the traditional ways of life can be witnessed.
