Cambodia is a country shaped by tragedy following the ravages of the Khmer Rouge, and yet its people are some of the most friendly and hospitable you will find anywhere in the world. It’s the people who help make Cambodia such a joy to visit, and our Cambodia cultural tours will give you lots of opportunities to meet them. Another highlight of Cambodia is its delicious food. Much of it is based around rice and fish, and some of the best places to try it – and to mingle with the locals – are at the numerous food stalls found in every town and city.
There are plenty of historical and architectural wonders to behold, too, with Cambodia cultural trips taking in sights such as Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, as well as the amazing temples at Angkor. The world’s largest religious construction in stone, Angkor Wat and stands testament to the former power of the Khmer Empire. The amazing temples and statues are in a constant struggle to fend off encroachment by the surrounding jungle. The Ta Prohom temple exemplifies this with large trees embedding themselves in the stone foundations of the structure. The intricately carved towers and statues of the site provide photographers with endless photo opportunities. In Phnom Penh, visit the genocide museum and the ‘Killing Fields’ for moving and unforgettable experiences.
This was our ninth trip with Exodus and although Cambodia didn’t make it into my top three of countries visited, this tour was simply the best so far. This was as much due to sharing the trip with a lovely group of like-minded travellers and having an excellent leader as it was to the experiences we enjoyed together.
A fantastic insight into this wonder country of vast contrasts. The people are warm and friendly. The towns and cities are vibrant while the countryside is quiet and tranquil – time for reflection and contemplation. The trip is extremely well organised and the staff we encountered were helpful, friendly and very supportive.
This was probably one of the best trips l have ever done.Eight of us became the Fila Family and we were all Seniors!! As the trip went on we became experts in spotting a Happy Hour 2 for 1 in any town we stayed in.The proposal to remove the water bowser for a beer barrel however fell on deaf ears…………not that seniors can drink……………. This was very much an up and at it tour so no lie ins. Food was really good and great value.Fila was always available to give us advice.Insects for dinner? No problem for these Seniors!!! After dinner we went dancing with the locals.Sorry the men watched on and the girls danced.What a moment.So many great times. Fila kept us in order and always had the hand sanitizer on tap………………..(in house joke) He was a mind of information and was very proud to show us his home town of Siem Reap and of course Angkor Wat. Seniors get up and go!We were all 60-70 and we completed the tour of Cambodia on the bikes……….(There’s a joke there) Go now.This country will change dramatically in the next couple of years. The Cambodians are a lovely people considering the pain and suffering they have had to endure.(Killing fields) So what is stopping you???
