When is the best time to visit?
There’s no bad time of year to visit Cambodia, but the main tourist season happens when temperatures are coolest from November through February. To avoid some of the crowds, visit towards the end of the country’s dry season, which extends all the way into May.
Where to go in Cambodia?
For an iconic Cambodian experience, tour the temples of the ancient city of Angkor. Additionally, there are many undiscovered off-the-beaten-path gems, like the untouched island beaches of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, the up and coming bustling city of Phnom Penh, and the 216 stone faces carved at Angkor Thom.
How many days do I need?
Budget at least 6 days in Cambodia to explore the temples and also get to know the vibrant community.
This 15-day tour of Cambodia brings you to the wonders of Angkor, Phnom Penh, the heritage town of Battambang, the pristine natural beauty of the Cardamom Mountains, and the tropical island paradise of Koh Rong. Get off the tourist trail and experience a different side of the Kingdom of Wonder, with visits to remote temple complexes and villages, and the chance to experience the Phare Circus and take a boat trip through the rainforest with a backdrop of mountains and rivers.
This journey through Indochina will walk you into the ancient Khmer city of Angkor, take you on a trip to the authentic floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake, and let you explore the world-famous Halong Bay. You will start your journey in historical Siem Reap in Cambodia and continue to Vietnam, where you will explore the Imperial City in Hue, the famous 400-year old Japanese Covered Bridge, and Ho Chi Minh City—the largest city in Vietnam.
See Cambodia by bike, following a pilgrimage route from Angkor to the Siem Reap Province. By getting off the beaten path, this challenge is a truly unique way to experience the lost temples and unknown sites of Cambodia. Alternatively, the tour can be completed on foot, offering great opportunities for trekking and hiking.

Cambodia is a small country with a wealth of cultural attractions and landscapes, from glorious beaches to thick jungle-clad mountains and lush rivers. However, it's best not to pack too much into your visit because the infrastructure makes getting around quite slow. If you opt for a slow-travel experience that favors quality over quantity, it doesn't matter whether you have five days or two weeks in Cambodia, as you'll certainly have a rich and rewarding stay.
This two-week itinerary covers the bases for a complete Cambodian experience, combining top sites, fun activities, insights into local life, and sampling authentic dishes from rice cakes to pepper crab. Over 14 days, you'll explore Angkor's temples, boat among Tonlé Sap Lake's floating villages, cycle the countryside, meet landmine-sniffing rats, and enjoy glamping in Cardamom Mountains National Park. Plus, there's time to relax by the beaches of Kep before rounding out your adventure in Phnom Penh.
You can experience every facet of Cambodia in two weeks, from exploring its ancient culture and archaeological treasures to off-the-beaten-path rainforest adventures and a relaxing beach idyll. Spend several days exploring the ancient sites and rural culture of Siem Reap, the Royal Palace and markets of Phnom Penh, and the wildlife-rich rainforest of Botum Sakor National Park. Top it off with four days kicking back by sunning and snorkeling on the beaches of Koh Rong.

Great extended family trip
Feb 5 - Feb 15, 2023
Steve managed to organize a short family trip for us down to Cambodia that was a trip of a lifetime. He was able to answer questions from each family member, at all times of the day, helping us prepare for the trip (from currency, to clothing, to flight recommendations). While we were there, he always made sure we were well taken care of, checking in on us and even went above to help with delayed baggage.
Regarding the trip itself, he managed to find a way for us to learn about the... read more

Jan 17 - Jan 29, 2023
I hope that on my next trip (wherever in the world that might be), I have another guide like Chu and his team at Absolute Tours in Siem Reap. He was energetic (most sprightly!) and fun and absolutely made the city and Cambodia come alive for us while taking us on rarely traveled back-roads and single-track mountain bike trails. We were amazed by his knowledge and his passion for sharing and teaching. While many guides seem to tick the box, Chu was ready to take us beyond the well-worn tourist... read more
