Laid-back Luxury... From Laos to Cambodia's Angkor Temples & Song Saa Private Island Resort

10 days from £5,420 per person

This itinerary is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Romantic Holidays and Top 10 Winter Sun Trips.

This tour combines Laos and Cambodia's most alluring highlights: a stay in the enchanting former royal capital of Luang Prabang, an exploration of the Temples of Angkor and down-time on the strikingly beautiful archipelago off the Cambodian coast. Start the journey in the spiritual town of Luang Prabang. The old town feels like a village and its charming streets lined with colonial houses, restaurants and delightful boutiques are a pleasure to stroll around. From watching long lines of saffron robed monks emerging from the morning mist to collect their alms, to exploring the abundant temples and relaxing with a cup of strong Lao coffee outside one of the many colonial buildings, Luang Prabang cannot fail but charm even the most world weary traveller.

Next, fly to Cambodia to explore the lost city of Angkor; approximately 900 temples made up the most astounding archaeological site in Asia. Indochina is full of French colonial charm and natural beauty, but this complex of gnarled 12th Century temples is its cultural pièce-de-resistance. Rediscovered a century ago when elephant-back explorers stumbled across them, these ruins are all in various states of disrepair. They are best explored by foot or bike at sunrise, by private tuk tuk or by hot air balloon for astonishing aerial views.

To unwind in style, instead of flocking to Thailand for your beach break, escape to what we think is Asia's most romantic and up-and-coming spot. Song Saa Private Island is a sustainable sanctuary of uncompromising luxury and unique design which draws its inspiration from the Cambodian fishing villages of the Koh Rong Archipelago. Set on two small interconnected islands in the warm sapphire waters off the coast of Sihanoukville, it has undergone 5 years of restoration and rejuvenation of its flora, fauna and coral. The resort is all-inclusive and its contemporary Khmer fusion cuisine is a major draw. Accommodation consists of 27 stunning jungle, sea-view and overwater villas.

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary: it can be booked as it is, or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal tailor-made holiday in Laos and CambodiaIf you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our Honeymoon and Family Holiday collections, as well as our other favourite Multi-Country, Spa & Wellness and Scuba Diving itineraries.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

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
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 thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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 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
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
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
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
