Cambodia

Mark and David's verdict:

It’s amazing to think that only 30 years ago Cambodia was torn apart by civil war and genocide. Today it’s one of Asia’s most exciting destinations, from the jungle-clad temple complex of Angkor to the vibrant capital, Phnom Penh. Throw in sensational food, great hotels and world-class beaches for an unmissable travel experience.

Cambodia holiday destinations

Cox & Kings says

Our choice of luxury tours (both escorted and private) and tailor made holidays leave little unexplored in Cambodia, one of Asia’s most fascinating and culture-rich destinations.

No visit to Cambodia would be complete without a few days in Siem Reap, gateway to the magical temples of Angkor, built more than 1,000 years ago by the Khmer empire. The capital city of Phnom Penh, with its tragic history and vibrant reincarnation, should also be on every itinerary.

  • Ancient wonders
  • Luxury retreats
  • Tours and private travel

We offer so much more besides – a helicopter flight over the temples of Angkor, a visit to the floating markets of Tonle Spa Lake, a temple camping safari with the chance to explore some of the lesser known temples and a stay in a secluded luxury tent, floating on the river in the Cardamom Mountains.

After all that breathtaking sightseeing, you can relax on the beach at Cambodia’s luxurious Song Saa island retreat.

Our most popular private tour, Cambodia in style, takes in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap over five nights, staying in the impeccable Raffles Hotel le Royal and Amansara hotels. It’s the perfect add-on to a longer stay in South East Asia.

If you want to make the most of a visit to the region, we also offer fascinating escorted and private tours which take in Northern Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia as well as Cambodia. Take a look at our 13-night Ancient Kingdoms of South East Asia escorted tour, for example.
