✡Why you’ll love this trip
➥This short but sweet adventure is packed full of experiences that will give you great insight into Cambodia in less than a week.
➥Angkor Wat. Need we say more? As well as a guided tour, you’ll also have a pass to cover your whole time in Siem Reap, so you can explore this incredible temple complex at your own pace.
➥Discover Kampong Luong and the countryside around Battambang with a visit to a floating village and a bike ride around rural farms to meet with local producers.
➥Travel from Vietnam to Thailand, experiencing the contrasts between three of the region’s most fascinating countries.
✡Is this trip right for you?
➥There are some long travel days by both private and public transport (up to 10 hours on the road), including the days that we cross from Vietnam to Cambodia and Cambodia to Thailand. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
➥Some travellers enjoy Siem Reap so much that they decide they want to stay extra days rather than continue with the group to Bangkok. You are welcome to sign off the trip to enjoy more of Cambodia, however we’re unable to reimburse any unused services or provide alternate onward travel arrangements.
➥Be prepared for basic shared facilities at your Mekong Delta homestay (Day 11). The lack of creature comforts is, of course, a small price to pay for such an authentic local experience.
➥We stay in hotel accommodation throughout this trip. If you would prefer a similar trip with a homestay experience, you might like to consider booking our Cambodia Express (TKSD) trip.
