Cambodian Discovery Tour… Jungle, City & Beach
9 days from £3,990 per person
This compact tour of Cambodia takes in the very best highlights, as well as some of the lesser known gems which give this fantastic country her rich history.
Start your journey in 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.
Travel north to for the highlight of your journey to Siem Reap, the gateway to the lost kingdom of Angkor, 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.
Your journey ends with a relaxing stay at the beautiful coastal town of Kep. A wonderfully soporific town and home to some of the finest pepper in the world, here you can while away the days soaking up the Cambodian sun.
