Cambodia: The Road Less Traveled
Custom Travel | 13 Days
- A private trip custom-designed for you
- An intimate look at Cambodia’s rarely visited regions
- Sleep in a floating lodge and kayak through mangrove forest
- Witness the energetic capital as well as its serene countryside
- Guided visits of glorious Angkor temples
This intimate look at the little-known regions of Cambodia begins in the country’s charismatic capital, Phnom Penh. From there you journey south through the quiet countryside to the Gulf of Thailand, the Cardamom Forest protected area, and the great complex of temples at Angkor, one of humanity’s greatest architectural achievements. Along the way you’ll discover magnificent waterfalls, mangroves, birds, and fireflies, and have opportunities to hike, boat, and learn about conservation. But this sample itinerary is just a suggestion: we’ll adjust it or redesign it completely to match your interests.
We have sampled the local cuisine, including noodle soups for breakfast, fresh crab in Kep, and chicken bones in garlic and red pepper—delicious! Today we kayaked to a mountain waterfall, climbed to its top, and jumped in. After our swim, we picnicked on smoked salmon and fresh mangos overlooking the cascade, feeling like we were dreaming, pinching ourselves to realize we really were in Cambodia.– AMIE J.
