Itinerary

  • 1 - Ho Chi Minh City Xin chao! Welcome to Ho Chi Minh. Your Cambodian adventure starts with a dip into Vietnam and a welcome meeting at 6 pm tonight. There's nothing planned for the first day, so feel free to get amongst the chaos of the city. A good place to start is the Ben Thanh Market, where you can snack on chao tom (barbecued shrimp paste on sticks of sugar cane). If you have time, a visit to Reunification Palace or the War Remnants Museum are recommended. Tonight, why not get your new friends together and enjoy a group dinner to kick off your journey?
  • 2 - Phnom Penh Today, travel to Phnom Penh on a public bus - this is a long journey that includes two border crossings and a stop where you can grab some lunch. Have your favourite books or road trip games ready - this is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers better. Your guide will assist with the formalities at both sides of the border. When you arrive, why not treat yourself to a traditional Khmer massage to ease the tension? Look no further than Seeing Hands - a great organisation supporting visually impaired masseurs.
  • 3 - Phnom Penh Today, you'll have an authentic local breakfast near one of the markets. Then, the group will head to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21) and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek - both sobering but important and informative experiences in Cambodia. After, you may like to explore some of the sights in your own time, like the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, which both offer brighter aspects of Cambodia's past. You might also head for the National Museum or Wat Phnom - a Buddhist temple built in 1372. The main centre of the city sits on the Western bank of the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers. In the evening, you'll head out with your group for a sunset river cruise and enjoy an included drink as you sail along the water and see the city from a different perspective. Then, you might like to hit up a rooftop bar with some amazing views of the city - there are tonnes of options to choose from, so just ask your leader, and they'll point you in the right direction!
  • 4 - Koh Rong Today, leave Phnom Penh on a private bus to Sihanoukville. Then, you'll take a speed boat to the paradise of Koh Rong. You'll have a couple of days on the island to really bliss out and adjust to island time - this afternoon is for swimming, relaxing on the warm sandy shores of the beach and walking along the coast in the balmy evening in search of somewhere for dinner (your leader will have some great recommendations).
  • 5 - Koh Rong Today is another free day to chill at the beach. Soak in the sun, order a few cocktails or cold beers to cool down and go swimming in the serene waters of Koh Rong. If you're looking for something active, maybe ask your leader for your hiking options, as there's plenty of gorgeous jungle and hidden waterfalls waiting to be discovered inland. Tonight, why not party it up at Nest Beach Club - a lively spot known for its nightlife.
  • 6 - Sambor Prei Kuk This morning, you'll leave the island behind and head for Sambor Prei Kuk, once the capital of Cambodia in the 7th century. Head to your homestay in Isanborei - a rural countryside community that maintains a traditional lifestyle. When you arrive, take a tour of the village with your local guide who will introduce you to the local people, your homestay and your hosts. Tonight, relax and unwind as you enjoy a traditional homemade Khmer dinner with your host family.
  • 7 - Siem Reap Enjoy breakfast prepared by your local host this morning. If you didn't get a chance yesterday, you can visit the nearby Sambor Preikuk Temple - some of the oldest ruins in the country (dating back to the 6th century). Maybe opt to cycle over the rural roads through the village, passing locals working in the rice fields, or perhaps try a sample of Sombai Cambodian Liqueur. After a day of exploring, say goodbye to your homestay hosts and travel on towards Siem Reap - home to the bucket list site, Angkor Wat. When you arrive, maybe spend some time looking around the central markets and pick up some delicious local food for dinner tonight.
  • 8 - Siem Reap - Angkor Wat Sunrise Early this morning, you'll visit the mighty Angkor complex at sunrise - this is the largest religious structure in the world, and it's pretty special to see the dawn rise over the temples. Get the camera ready because these 400 acres are full of picturesque settings. You'll take a guided tour of the complex on a Tuk-tuk with a local social enterprise that focuses on providing employment opportunities for women in the community - and see the larger-than-life Angkor Wat, the grand Bayon and the jungle-covered Ta Prohm. Some buildings are over a thousand years old from the Khmer Empire - these beauties were known to represent the cosmic world and were set in perfect balance, symmetry and composition. If you like, try to catch the majesty of the temples at sunset, too - you can even head back to your accommodation after your guided tour for a nap and then re-enter the site in the late afternoon.
  • 9 - Bangkok Goodbye Cambodia, hello Thailand. Drive from Siem Reap to Bangkok in a private minivan today. After a long travel day, arrive in Bangkok. The khlongs (canals) are a great way to escape from all the chaos - maybe take a boat to the popular Chinatown for a delicious street food dinner. A traditional Thai massage may also be a good option to relax into the evening. There's some great nightlife and rooftop bars to explore here, so be sure to stake out a place with your travel buddies and watch day turn to night, celebrating your final evening.
  • 10 - Bangkok There are no activities planned for today and your trip comes to an end. Bangkok is full of things to do, including the Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, or the Jim Thompson museum. If you'd like to stay in Thailand for longer, just speak to your booking agent.
