Fist pump for Cambodia! Settle in and relax at our cushy hotel in the heart of the capital city of Phnom Penh before group introductions.

Day 2

Explore Cambodian Culture


The Cambodian culture is on full display! Explore the sacred Silver Pagoda and walk the grounds of the sprawling Royal Palace.

Day 3

Floating Village Adventure


There are 10,000 Khmer locals that live in this ancient floating village. LIfe is entirely dependent on the ebb and flow of the local river fed from Tonle Sap Lake and the Mekong Delta. Take a private boat along this river system out to the lake and witness the everyday life of the beautiful people who call this home. After, a local family welcomes us in for a lunch time feast.

Day 4

Kulen Waterfalls


Beyond being home to Angkor Wat and so the epicentre of Cambodian culture, Siem Reap has no shortage of things to do and see. Spend the morning at Kulen National Park at the stunning waterfalls hidden deep in the jungle. After, chill poolside, check out the many local markets, or grab a ticket to the Cambodian circus that supports underprivileged Khmer youth.

Day 5

Angkor Wat Sunrise


Hop in for a guided tuk-tuk ride through the buzzing streets of Siem Reap. Then walk through the centuries-old temple of Angkor Wat. This sprawling Buddhist temple complex is the largest religious site in the world. (Yes, we know. We also thought it was the Egyptian pyramids.) There's really no better place for a sunrise than at Angkor Wat. Finish the day with an optional night out on the world-famous Pub Street.

Day 6

Temple Ruins Viewpoint


Get further off the beaten path with a visit to the mountain-top ruins of Wat Banan. Scale the 358 steps to the five temples at the summit and look out over the evergreen countryside below. Then, to another reminder of Cambodia’s tragic past - the Killing Cave. Finish with sunset at the Bat Cave to witness over 2 million bats pour out of their hillside home into the sunset.

Day 7

Back Country of Battambang


Cycle cruise through the stunning countryside of this lazy countryside village. Along the way, we stop to meet a local family who specialises in making rice paper.

Day 9

Oh, Otres!


You make the rules today! Head out for a fishing trip, post up on the beach, or rent a moped - we suggest, you decide. Not hard to see why The New York Times dubbed this seaside getaway "Asia's next trendsetting beach". The many white-sand beaches - including Otres Beach - that are scattered around this buzzing beach town offer the same pristine beauty of Thailand with a lot smaller crowds.
