Cambodia is a land of rich contrasts which has overcome its turbulent recent past to reinvent itself as one of the best travel destinations in Southeast Asia. Our Cambodia tours offer guests a fantastic combination of adventure, romance and culture in a country that was once the beating heart of the Khmer Empire - Southeast Asia’s most powerful medieval kingdom.
From the jungle-shrouded temples of Angkor, to the mountain-fringed beaches of the south, the country presents a breath-taking landscape filled with ancient ruins, dense rainforest, endangered wildlife, remote communities and some of the finest cuisine in Southeast Asia. We recommend taking the opportunity to cycle, trek and kayak through its near-pristine countryside. Get up close with elephants at the ethical Elephant Valley Project or try to spot the endangered Irrawaddy Dolphin along the mighty Mekong River.
Our range of tailor-made Cambodia holidays offers a wonderful chance for the adventurous family or honeymooners to get off the beaten track and away from the usual holiday destinations; to experience Cambodia’s excitingly diverse and welcoming culture in the way they want.
Travelling with a responsible and experienced tour operator like Wild Frontiers enables you to get a taste of the ‘real’ Cambodia by interacting with local communities, sharing mealtimes with local families and enjoying the country’s famed hospitality in homestays. The focal point for many visits to Cambodia is the incomparable Angkor Wat Temple Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site spread across over 300 square kilometres of jungle and rainforest in the country’s north-west. Angkor Wat’s magnificent ruins testify to the glory of Khmer power, with the spectacular centrepiece being the ‘Temple City’ itself, the world’s largest religious monument and one of the new wonders of the world.
But Cambodia is so much more than the temples of Siem Reap – as spectacular as they are. It can also boast remote tribal communities in its northern hills and beautifully deserted beaches in the south, the meandering labyrinth of waterways around picturesque Tonle Sap and a fusion of colonial French and Thai influences that offer up a smorgasbord of flavours and experiences.
Those seeking the modern side of Cambodia will be thrilled with the bustling cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. These growing urban centres showcase an optimistic and outward looking population, with high quality restaurants, quirky bars and luxury hotels on offer for those looking to relax and unwind.
