Tailor-made Holidays to Cambodia

Nothing can prepare you for the moment when you first set eyes on Angkor Wat. You can learn all about it, Cambodia and our Expert service, here on our Cambodia holidays guide, and even start adding our travel ideas to your Trip List.

Angkor Wat

The world's largest religious monument is an essential stop on any tour of Southeast Asia. The whole Angkor complex is huge, so we’d recommend at least a couple of days to take in the best of the temples. To visit Angkor Wat and Cambodia, choose from our below itinerary examples, or talk to one of our Experts about a tailor-made holiday.

Cambodia’s unique charms have been largely overlooked until recently. Bordered by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, it tends to be lumped in with its Southeast Asian neighbours due to the convenience of travel in the region.

While there are similarities to Thailand - tropical climates, white sand beaches, paradise islands and ubiquitous Buddhist temples - Cambodia's later arrival on the tourism scene has saved most of its natural assets from over-development. Experienced travellers are now choosing the kingdom over its neighbours to enjoy a more authentic experience that still offers the comforts of five-star resorts and restaurants.

Many visitors are drawn to Cambodia for its rich history, with most international arrivals heading straight for the stunning Angkor Wat temple complex and the other atmospheric ruins scattered around the UNESCO-listed Angkor Archaeological Park. The country's more recent history under the tyranny of the Khmer Rouge can also be explored in unflinching detail at the moving Choeung Ek Killing Fields memorial and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Touring these sites is not for the faint-hearted but will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the hardships faced by the Cambodian people during those years, and their subsequent remarkable recovery.

These of course are just some of the highlights of this charming country. For more ideas and inspiration to add to your itinerary, speak to an expert and start planning your trip today.

When to go

Holiday season never stops in Cambodia, as the country enjoys a warm, tropical climate year round. Most Britons visit in December and January, when temperatures are at their most comfortable and offer a haven from winter back home. The monsoon season lasts from May or June to October each year and, while it can be difficult to reach some islands and remote regions during these months, it doesn't usually have an impact on the major tourist spots – apart from the benefit of lower prices. If you're keen to see some local culture during your trip, we recommend visiting during Cambodian New Year in mid-April or in November to experience the unique Bon Om Touk water festival.

At Round the World Experts we have plenty of options for multi-stop flights from the UK to Cambodia, with the ability to add a stopover along the way or on the way back in a destination of your choice.
