Cultural Gems of Cambodia

8 days from £3,750 per person

This is a great mini trip to Cambodia, whether you are returning to this charming land or visiting for the first time.

Begin with a stay in the buzzing capital of Phnom Penh, and take time to visit the sparkling Royal Palace, the Russian Market and shocking relics of the Khmer Rouge era. Here you will stay in the beautifully contemporary Rosewood Phnom Penh, the sexiest new hotel in town with unbeatable views across the city.

From Phnom Penh you will travel North to Siem Reap to see one of Cambodia’s most celebrated highlight, the Angkor temple complex. Spend days immersing yourself in the ancient history of this fascinating region, exploring the famous 'lost city' of the Khmers, the most astounding archaeological site in Asia. Discover temples where colossal stone faces stare impassively across stone-built temples devoted to long-forgotten empires, now trailed by jungle creepers and pierced by the strangling roots of vast forest trees.

This 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 tour of Cambodia. If you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our favourite Family Holidays and Active Holidays.

Client Testimonials

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
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!
- Jaime Benitez, South 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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
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
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
