A Cambodian Discovery… Jungle, Beach & City

11 days from £4,400 per person

Cambodia has often been mistaken for an ‘add-on’ destination to other countries in Southeast Asia, however, this two-week tour takes in Cambodia’s very best highlights, as well as some of the lesser known gems which give this fantastic country her rich history.

Your journey begins in Siem Reap, the gateway to the lost kingdom of Angkor and the most astonishing archaeological site in Asia. The renowned ‘lost city’ of the Khmers, built by a succession of kings between the 9th and 15th centuries, is an expanse of verdant jungle and a myriad of stone-built temples devoted to a long-forgotten empire. With hundreds of temples in an area so vast, even after multiple trips you will feel as though you have only just scratched the surface.

From Siem Reap fly down to Sihanoukville and onto the beautiful coastal town of Kep. A wonderfully soporific town, famous for its blue crab and grilled seafood, and is home to some of the finest pepper in the world. This is the perfect spot to take up some water sport activities at the Sailing Club or to simply while away the days soaking up the Cambodian sun. After Kep, your journey takes you back up the coast to the island of Koh Russey and the sexiest new beach hotel, Alila Villas Koh Russey. This isolated beach hotel, lapped by the gin-clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand and fringed by golden sand beaches, is the place to switch off from it all.

The final leg of your journey takes you to the historic and vibrant capital of Phnom Penh, a city of shady boulevards, meandering back alleys and French colonial buildings. A visit to the sparkling Royal Palace complex is a must, and the chaotic and lively Russian Market is excellent for those wanting to barter for trinkets. A city tour will also take you to the Silver Pagoda, the famed home of the Emerald Buddha and the vast diamond encrusted Gold Buddha, and the fascinating National Museum. Phnom Penh is also a vital stop to witness the sombre relics of the Khmer Rouge era, where the killing fields and Tuol Sleng Museum will provide an insight into the reign of terror this nation suffered under the Khmer Rouge rule.

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is, or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made holiday to Cambodia. If you'd like to see similar tours, take a look at our favourite Honeymoons, as well as our Beach HolidaysActive Holidays and Family Holidays in Asia collections.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
