Your Cambodia travel itinerary:
Day 1: Phnom Penh
Fly from the UK to Phnom Penh.
Days 2 - 3: Phnom Penh
Explore exotic Phnom Penh, right on the banks of the mighty Mekong River. Head through the bustling streets, dodge the motorbikes and tour the glittering Royal Palace, covered with ornate gilding. Within the palace grounds is the opulent Silver Pagoda, whose 5000 silver tiles glitter in the sunlight. But that’s not all – a solid gold Buddha stands in their midst, covered in over 2000 diamonds. After all that, it’s time for a bit of history as you learn about Cambodia’s troubled past at the Genocide Museum and view the 8000 skulls on display at the chilling Killing Fields of Choeung Ek.
Days 4 - 8: Sihanoukville
Fly down to Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s most popular beachside retreat. With a number of lovely beaches, Sihanoukville is where Cambodia’s beach scene is at. Head to the pretty Otres Beach for peace and quiet by the sea, or for true rest and relaxation, set sail on a paradise getaway to the outlying islands, many of which have no electricity. But it’s not just about the surf and the sand – take a walk up Wat Leu for hilltop sunset views - indeed excellent views of the entire town can be had from up here.
Days 9 - 11: Siem Reap
Discover the temples of Angkor from Siem Reap. Gaze up at the giant faces staring back at you from the temple of Angkor Thom and then watch as the jungle takes over the corridors of mystical Ta Prohm. Pay a visit to the 12th century temple of Preah Khan, where many trees grow among the ruins, adding to the atmosphere. After all the temples, immerse yourself in life on the lake as you cruise the calm waters of Tonle Sap, passing the floating fishing villages and observing the prolific bird life.
Days 12 - 13:
Depart Siem Reap and return to the UK.
