Few sights on earth can rival the majesty of Angkor Wat, the immense ancient temple for which Cambodia owes it's 'must visit' status, silhouetted against fiery orange skies at sunrise. Everyone recognises the iconic Khmer architecture of Angkor Thom - the magnificent remains of an intelligent and resourceful civilisation - but there are hundreds of temples scattered around Angkor, covering 400 square kilometers of countryside around Siem Reap. Bayon, the temple of many carved faces and jungle-clad Tah Promh, which with twisting roots and vines covering the stone many recognise as the setting for Tomb Raider, are two of the other most popular to visit.
But there's so much more to a Cambodia holiday. As the experts, we'll make sure you have time to get under the skin of the rest of the country. Once you've discovered the harrowing recent history of Cambodia with visits to the Genocide Museum and Killing Fields of Pnomh Penh, head away from the crowds to discover sleepy towns, gems of colonial architecture, lesser visited Angkorian temples and a largely undeveloped coastline. For pure adventure, speak to a Travel Specialist about organisinga fabulous overnight luxury camping experience in the remote temple of Koh Ker, where you can awake to sunrise over the jungle temples.
You can't fail to be impressed by the gleaming Royal Palace in Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, and the solid silver floor of the Silver Pagoda. Take in sobering Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the killing fields of Choeung Ek. Roam lesser visited Angkorian temples and faded colonial architecture in Battambang; stop at the charming riverine town of Kampot and head to Koh Tonsay, or 'Rabbit Island', just off the coast of the small coastal town of Kep.
