SIEM REAP - PHNOM PENH - SIHANOUKVILLE. Our 10 day Cambodia Tour Guides adventure allows you to uncover our country's extraordinary culture. We begin in Siem Reap, gateway to the former Angkor Empire. Your first "visit" to the temple of Angkor Wat will be from a tethered helium balloon! Since Siem Reap is home to hundreds of temples, we have chosen those that are superior examples of the empire which began in the 7th century. Our journey takes you to floating villages, the beach resort town of Sihanoukville and a visit to the vibrant capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh....

Siem Reap - Phnom Penh - Sihanoukville

Our expert guides have devised a Cambodian experience that allows visitors to our country to discover our glorious past and our exciting, recent history. Cambodia is filled with some of the most revered and magnificent temples in the world but many still do not know of its vibrant cities, beautiful beaches, towering jungles, lush forests, 4-star hotels and justly famous restaurants. Whether you decide to cycle through parts of Cambodia, ride in an air-conditioned car or trek, you will never be disappointed by the wonders that you see.  The Khmer (Cambodians) have been called, "the friendliest people on the earth."  We welcome you to our homeland and are anxious to show you why we are so proud of Kampuchea!

There is nothing quite like our glorious temples. Siem Reap, former capital of Cambodia, is the gateway to the fabled Angkor Empire. Located within this ancient site is situated the magnificent and mysterious Angkor Wat ("wat" refers to a temple complex of various buildings attached to the main temple).  Because of its power and mystery, Angkor Wat has often been compared to the magnificent cathedral at Chartres, France.  It is the world's largest religious structure and has been dedicated for worship by our Hindu brothers and sisters, used as a Buddhist temple and today, are still employed by the followers of the Hindu faith. From here, we will travel to several other temples such as Preak Ko, Phnom Bakheng, and many others.

Taking an elephant ride to Bayon temple before visiting one of the most famous sites in the region, Ta Prohm, is an experience you soon won't forget. This temple,"held together" by strangler fig trees, has been filmed in Hollywood movies such as "Indiana Jones, and "Lara Croft, Tomb Raider". There is nothing quite like it anywhere on this planet.

But there is more, much more. Your guides will offer you a variety of adventures to partake of, from visiting floating villages, cruising the mighty Mekong, swimming at the famous and busy beach resort, Sihanoukville, you can design your own adventure that will bring you back to Cambodia year after year.

Our capital, Phnom Pneh, was established by Grandmother Penh several hundred years ago.  She established a "wat" atop the only hill ("phnom") in the area and from that day forward, our city has been renowned as the "Pearl of the Orient."  You will not want to forget Phnom Penh with its glorious views of the Mekong, lovely parks, beautiful Buddhist temples, jumping night life, wonderful markets with treasures to be had a a fraction of the cost in other parts of the world, and its friendly and welcoming citizens.

Welcome to Cambodia!
