You’ll never forget your first glimpse of Angkor Wat; its crumbling temples, intricate carvings and encroaching jungle are far and away the number one reason for most visits to Cambodia. But while it’s all very Indiana Jones, don’t overlook the country’s other charms. The Khmer people are some of the friendliest in Asia, while the peaceful waters of the Tonlé Sap, coupled with the mountain-backed beaches of the south, make Cambodia’s countryside delightfully photogenic. To see it all you’ll need a couple of weeks at least, but if you’re short on time then Angkor Wat can easily be tacked onto a Vietnam or Thailand holiday.
Popular Tailor-made Cambodia Holidays
Cambodia is most famous for the fascinating Khmer ruins at Angkor, particularly the iconic temple of Angkor Wat. But there’s more to this country than archaeology. From its traumatic recent history, Cambodia has emerged as a top Southeast Asian destination, with travellers attracted by its friendly people, aromatic cuisine and varied historical sights. Cambodia’s vibrant capital Phnom Penh is filled with golden-spired temples and fascinating museums, while the countryside offers a slice of traditional rural life. To experience it all, we have created a range of itineraries to show you the best of Cambodia. These tailor-made Journeys combine flights with hand-picked hotels, experiences, tours, transfers and transport into one easy itinerary. And best of all, these Cambodia holidays are just an example of what we can create for you. To book or to tailor an itinerary, talk to our Experts today.

Top 3 Things to Do in Cambodia
When to Go to Cambodia
With its tropical climate, Cambodia enjoys year-round warm weather. It experiences just two distinct seasons, the wet from May to October, and the dry from November to April. The bright blue skies, low humidity and sunny days of the dry season make this time the most popular time to visit. More people means higher prices though, so if you’re on a budget consider travelling in the lush wet season, which despite the name, still offers plenty of sunshine.
