After a traumatic late 20th century period, travel to Cambodia is now very much back on the agenda.

The magnificent temple complex of Angkor of course is the highlight of any tour of Cambodia, but many visitors also fall in love with Phnom Penh with its youthful atmosphere and wide boulevards.

The sleepy coastal stretch from Kampot to Kep and the off-shore islands along the Cambodian Riviera offer peaceful beach escapes, with a handful of new, luxury boutique resorts.

Off-the-beaten track Cambodia offers wildlife, little-explored mountain ranges and unique tribal cultures. With two excellent luxury lodges, Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains are the place to head to nature lovers.

This Authentic Cambodia Holiday will introduce you to something of Cambodia above and beyond the main sights.

You'll begin with 5 nights to see the temples at Angkor and discover local life in Cambodia. Next enjoy 4 nights in the capital Phnom Penh, followed by 4 nights to relax in a boutique Cambodian seafront resort.

This is a Private Tour which can be tailored to suit your interests, time, hotel & airline choice and to fit your budget.

Days 1-5: Discover Angkor

Begin your trip in Siem Reap in the north of Cambodia, home to the magnificent temples of Angkor.

Begin by enjoying a private half day tour of Angkor Wat, one of the world's iconic archaeological sites. In the evening enjoy a local dinner at a restaurant supporting local underprivilged children.

The next day head out into the Cambodian countryside on the back of a Vespa scooter and discover real life in the region around Siem Reap.

The following day head back to the temple complext at Angkor and discover spectacular temples such as Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom.

Take a break from temple touring to experience authentic rural lifestyles.

Drive to the outskirts of Siem Reap, past expansive rice fields and through local villages where rice and fish can frequently be spotted drying alongside the road. Next, board a private wooden vessel for a boat trip along a canal that leads to the Tonle Sap Lake.

In the evening, attend Phare, a circus-like show combining modern and traditional Khmer theatre. Learn about daily life and customs through the graceful movements of the performers and chat with them afterwards.

Set up by refugees of the Khmer Rouge era, Phare promotes performing arts as a way to cope with trauma. Over the years they have not only helped hundreds of Cambodians but also helped to promote traditional Khmer culture.

Finally, visit the Roulos Group of Temples before moving on to Phnom Penh.

We've suggested a charming boutique resort in Siem Reap called Maison Polanka which will give you a great experience of staying somewhere special and unique in Siem Reap.

Days 6-9: Explore Phnom Penh

After Siem Reap, enjoy 4 nights in Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital city.

Phnom Penh is well worth a visit as the city has some lively markets, impressive temples and a great little museum which will elucidate much about the magnificent monuments further north.

On a more sobering note, the Killing Fields memorial is a moving testament to more recent events and an important place to visit to really understand modern day Cambodia.

On your first day in Phnom Penh, enjoy a morning walking tour to visit most of the essential sites. The following day is a more sobering one, with a visit to the Killing Fields, and also local projects supporting kids in Phnom Penh.

You will discover entire communities living within the expansive rooftops of a 19th century French colonial church and an early 20th century Chinese community centre!

Finally enjoy a full day tour to the historic capital of Cambodia, Oudong.

You'll be staying in a luxury hotel by the river in Phnom Penh called the Bale.

Days 11-15: Relax in a Boutique Resort in Kep

After Phnom Penh, transfer down to the coast at Kep and stay in a charming boutique coastal hotel in Kep.

Kep was once the top Cambodian beach resort destination and is now a quiet but developing region of Cambodia close to the Vietnamese border.

Whereas Sihanoukville has long stretches of golden sand, Kep is a little more rugged, with shorter stretches of beach interspersed with mangroves and rocky coastal stretches.

Kep is famous throughout Cambodia for its seafood and the crab market is an ever popular spot - both for tasting the delicious fresh crab and for people watching.

Knai Bang Chatt (meaning the halo around the Buddha’s head) is the only ‘luxury’ hotel in Kep and offers the chance to enjoy a relaxing seaside holiday in Cambodia after a tailor made tour of Cambodia.

Knai Bang Chatt offers understated luxury in a fabulous setting. Rooms are spacious but minimalist, decorated in earthy tones and accented with Khmer art and artefacts. The seafront setting is idyllic, with lawns surrounding a swimming pool and over-looked by two magnificent trees.

Just 18 uniquely designed rooms are set in three renovated villas, designed with large terraces open to views of the lawns, sea and islands.
