What people say
The Cambodia in Depth trip was an experience of a lifetime. While the Angkor temples were truly spectacular, I also enjoyed the exposure to how Cambodia people live today. Our guides, who were both knowledgeable and personable, truly enhanced the experience.

Cambodia travel highlights
Find peace at Phnom Penh’s Wat Phnom
Climb the hill to peaceful Wat Phnom, named after a 14th century woman who found sacred Buddhist objects in the nearby river.
Shop Siem Reap’s old market
A visit to the old market is a must, even if you're not looking for souvenirs; wandering through the stalls and surrounding shops the silks, cottons, sarongs, silver and statues are a riot of colour and a feast for the eyes.
Try Durian in Kampot
Famous for its pepper, Kampot supplied most French restaurants with this vital spice for many years during colonial rule. Today, the region is more renowned for its plantations of durian, a spiky, pungent fruit that either incites adoration or sheer loathing. Try it if you dare!

Cambodia Discovery, August 2015
A great tour with lots to see and do but not so full on that you don't have time out. Have recommended trip to several friends.
