What our specialists say...

This itinerary is perfect for people interested in seeing and learning more about the temples of Angkor. After a visit to the emerging capital city of Phnom Penh, the majority of your time is spent exploring the temples around the town of Siem Reap. There are a multitude of temples each with unique architecture and a different story to tell. After a week of exploring the magnificent structures you will have a deep understanding and appreciation of the Khmer empire and the legacy that has been left. The order in which you visit the temples has been carefully considered so that you get the best out of your time at Angkor.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Phnom Penh
  • Siem Reap
