Why should you travel to Cambodia with us?

A place where you can get ahead of the crowds, not follow them.

Cambodia glows with ancient wonder, from the fabled temples of Angkor Wat to the heady metropolis of Phnom Penh. At its feet are tropical islands. In its highlands are the majestic Cardamom Mountains. We can arrange for a scholar to host you among the fig trees of Ta Prohm, telling stories of the rich history of Khmer culture, or take you to pristine beaches that few ever lay eyes on.

Cambodia has now opened up its borders to travellers, meaning our tailor-made trips can take you into untouched corners of its culture once more. Fully vaccinated UK travellers will need proof of a negative PCR test obtained no more than 72 hours prior to departure, as well as a negative rapid antigen test taken upon arrival in Cambodia. A small price to pay for the splendour of Angkor Wat away from the crowds.

Top Locations in Cambodia

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Cambodia, we’d go for these.
Cambodia Siem Reap

Siem Reap

Step away from the crowds and live your own Indiana Jones moment among the temples of Angkor Wat.

Borrin and our other fantastic local guides have the insider knowledge on the best way to experience Angkor Wat – the Royal city and former capital of the Khmer Empire, Angkor Thom. Travel by charming tuk tuks to lesser-known ancient temples before returning to the colorful night markets and charming locals of Siem Reap. Learn traditional dishes during a private cooking class and spend a night marvelling at an authentic theatre and dance production at Phares Circus.

Cambodia Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh

Delve into the history of Cambodia’s cultural capital.

Combining a mixture of colonial French architecture and Buddhist dwellings, Phnom Penh is a city that turned a recent heart-wrenching history into a show of vibrancy and victory. This is a city where monks congregate in parks and street-food vendors crowd the streets. With our insider knowledge and exclusive tours, hear the stories of the 1970’s Khmer Rouge regime and discover the resilience of the Cambodian people, before spending an evening sampling Cambodian gastronomy beside the Mekong river.

Song Saa Island in Cambodia

The Islands

Wind down on the sands of Cambodia’s jungle-fringed islands.

In the Gulf of Thailand, the southern islands of Cambodia flaunt eye-catching beaches, still waters, and dazzling underwater adventures. Song Saa is a personal favourite of ours. Here, relaxation is on the agenda, with its spectacular setting and second-to-none hospitality. By night, experience the mesmerising glitter swirling around you as you swim with bioluminescent plankton – an unforgettable way to end your Cambodian getaway.
