Is This Trip for You?

This is a busy itinerary that visits the main highlights of Cambodia. We travel by private minibus to allow you to experience as much as possible of this beautiful and diverse county in a short space of time. We have kept the travelling time to a minimum however a couple of day have approx. 5 hours transfer journeys. We use 3 star hotels throughout our tour. It is important to take into consideration that outside of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap Cambodia is fairly underdeveloped for tourism.

Itinerary

Land Only Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Start Phnom Penh.

    Sousadei! Welcome to Cambodia. Dependent on arrival time there will be the opportunity to explore the capital or simply relax by the hotel pool. There will be a short meeting scheduled to introduce you to Cambodia followed by an optional welcome dinner.

  • Day 2

    Transfer to Kampot; sunset river cruise.

    Leaving Phnom Penh we travel into rural Cambodia to Kampot which sits on a picturesque river. On the way we stop at Phnom Chisor mountain temple set on a hill with a magnificent view. The temple was built in the 11th century by King Suryavarman I. It is made of laterite, bricks and carved sandstone. Upon arrival we check into our centrally located hotel, our base for the next two nights, before boarding a local boat for sunset trip on the Kampot River. The river runs through the centre of the town and can flow in both directions as it is closely connected to the sea.

  • Day 3

    Explore fruit and pepper plantations; visit Kep.

    Today we venture out into the countryside to discover the highlights of the Kampot Province including local salt fields, rice fields, fruit and pepper plantations, and the Phnom Chhnork caves. Kampot is also famed for being one of the largest producers of the durian fruit; the durian, once opened, has a smell so pungent it is illegal to take indoors in some South East Asian countries! After exploring the countryside we visit Kep “ghost town” - previously a popular seaside resort Kep now houses old resort buildings which have bullet holes in from the Khmer Rouge period, a reminder of the not so distant past. Kep is once again regaining popularity with local tourists and you might like to join them in having lunch in the simple crab shacks that line the beach. Serving up the freshest seafood around the crab in Kampot pepper sauce is not to be missed!

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 4

    Journey to Koh Kong along jungle roads.

    Leaving Kampot in the morning we travel to Koh Kong which is in the Cardamom protected area, one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, and the second largest area of rainforest in mainland Southeast Asia. Getting closer to Koh Kong the route winds its way through roads with jungle on either side and past elephant crossing signs – the Cardamoms are part of the elephant migration path. Koh Kong town is based on the Koh Poi river around a 10 minute drive from casuarina and palm-lined white sandy beaches.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 5

    Optional activities; mangrove forest or boat trip to islands.

    Today is free for optional trips and activities. Koh Kong province is fast establishing itself as Cambodia’s eco-tourism destination so there are a wealth of activities to choose from; take a trip to to Tatei waterfall, visit the Peam Krasaop Wildlife Santuary or take a rustic local boat trip to Koh Kong island, the perfect opportunity to relax on a coconut-palmed lined beach and to swim in the crystal clear waters.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 6

    Transfer to Phnom Penh; evening rickshaw ride.

    After breakfast we begin our journey to Phnom Penh. Located on the banks of the Tonle Sap and the Mekong River Phnom Penh is home to 2.2 million of Cambodia’s residents. Despite being the capital it still retains a laid-back typically Cambodian feel where the pace is slower than some might expect. There will however be a fair amount of motorbike dodging as the pedestrian is not favoured on the winding side streets! We continue our exploring with a sunset cyclo (bicycle rickshaw) lap of the town giving us a unique view of this bustling city and providing us with an easy orientation. Stopping to see some of the local street food being served on the waterfront we have the chance to try some local specialities. We continue on to finish at a restaurant serving tasty Khmer cuisine. There are also many waterfront bars worth a visit; the Foreign Correspondents Club (FCC) overlooking the Tonle Sap River and only a short walk from the hotel is recommended.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 7

    Sightseeing including Royal Palace, Killing Fields and Russian Market.

    The town still retains a frontier atmosphere and today we have a full day of sightseeing in the capital city. The day will include the beautiful Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, so named for the solid silver tiles that make up the floor. Thankfully the complex escaped the worst excess of the Khmer Rouge rule. Similar in style and scale to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, the Royal Palace has significantly fewer visitors and there is plenty of time to wander among the traditional buildings. There is also time today to shop at either the impressive Central Market or the sprawling Russian Market, a souvenir hunter's paradise! We visit Tuol Sleng museum or S21 (Museum of Genocide), which graphically displays the horrors of the 4 years when Pol Pot systematically ordered the murder of between 2 and 3 million Cambodians. Tuol Sleng was originally a school but was used as a torture and interrogation centre between 1976 and 1979. It is a sobering and disturbing place to visit. Please be aware that the images at the museum are very graphic. We complete our day with a moving late afternoon visit to the 'killing fields' of Choeung Ek. A football-field-sized area surrounded by farmland, the killing fields contain mass graves for perhaps 20,000 Cambodians, many of whom were tortured before being killed.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 8

    Journey to colonial city of Battambang.

    Our destination today is Battambang (pronounced Battambong). Cambodia's second-largest city, Battambang, is centred around an attractive riverside hub with traces of French elegance, friendly Khmer people and well-preserved colonial architecture. There are also some striking examples of Art Deco architecture; Central market, the Victory swimming pool and the train station to name a few. En route to Battambang we have the chance to stop at a pottery village, a silversmith village and a marble handicraft workshop for an insight into local handcrafts and industry. In the evening we’ll enjoy an orientation walk along the Sangke River bank and observe daily life of the local people.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 9

    Leisurely cycle ride through rural Battambang (otherwise explore on foot).

    Today we cycle through countryside to explore Cambodia’s rural way of life. Stopping at villages to see local cottage industries, traditional scarf weaving and traditional farming there will be countless opportunities to interact with the villagers who may be surprised to see us travelling as they do, on a bicycle! We’ll reward our morning’s efforts with a traditional Cambodian lunch where we'll get to taste a variety of Battambang’s famous fish soup, vegetables, fruit and a refreshing coconut. The cycle is easy riding on flat terrain with lots of stops along the way. If you would like to opt out of the cycling and hop on a tuk-tuk instead please let the leader know at the beginning of the trip so alternative arrangements can be made.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch
  • Day 10

    Transfer to Siem Reap.

    After breakfast we head to the town of Siem Reap with stops at the local market at Pouk. Cambodian markets tend to be fragrant affairs – on offer here is Cambodian ‘cheese’; one of the strongest smelling cheeses around - perhaps because it is made entirely of fish! The local market is nonetheless a great insight into the daily life of the Cambodian people. We will also make a brief stop at the Angkor Silk Farm for a introduction into the life of a silkworm and the production process of this fine textile. This afternoon we walk past the Royal Gardens and along the Siem Reap River front to the Old Market helping us get our bearings in this charming small town. You may like to finish with a visit to the Artisans DÁngkor workshop – a not-for-profit organisation which provides vocational training for young people in traditional Cambodian arts.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 11

    Full day at Angkor temple complex; sunset visit.

    Our first full day of temple touring is by private bus so we can visit some of the outlying temples such as Banteay Srei. Known as the Women’s Citadel this small temple complex with intricate carvings is devoted to Brahma. Particularly impressive are Banteay Kdei and Ta Prohm, still covered in jungle, similar to how it was when it first came to light. Discovered for the world in the 1870s, (although always known by the local people), and famously described as being 'grander than anything of Greece or Rome' by the French explorer Henri Mouchot, this world heritage site stands alongside the Pyramids and Machu Picchu as one of the world's most spectacular archaeological sites. Tonight is free to enjoy one of the many restarants on the famous 'Bar Street' boulevard in central Siem Reap. You may also wish to marvel at the skills of the Phare Cambodian Circus troop for an entirely different option or chose to watch some traditional Apsara dancing.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 12

    Leisurely bicycle tour of temples.

    This morning we get set up on mountain bikes for an easy but active ride around the Angkorian ruins that are closer to town. On the bicycle we can avoid some of the crowds and get a unique perspective on this amazing site. If you want to rise early you can arrange with your leader to take in Angkor at sunrise prior to the day’s cycling. We will visit the incredible Angkor Wat, the many temples inside the Royal City of Angkor Thom, including the magnificent Bayon, which is comprised of 54 intricately carved towers in one single temple. The Bayon certainly left an impression on an early traveller in 1925 who stated 'we stand before it stunned. It is like nothing else in the land.' Angkor is a truly magical experience and a photographer's paradise, one of the real highlights of our trip. The ride will be approx. 25km with plenty of opportunities for refreshment stops and to take photos.If you would like to opt out of cycling and instead take a tuk tuk or rickshaw please let your leader know. There will be a small extra cost involved.
    Comfortable Hotel

    Meals included:
    Breakfast

    End Siem Reap.

    This morning is at your leisure in Siem Reap, those on the group flights will make the short journey to the airport late morning.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast

Accommodation

Hotels

You will spend twelve nights in comfortable hotels with en suite facilities.

Single rooms are available for a supplement of GBP290. Please advise the sales team at the time of booking if you require a single room.

Single supplement from 374,65 €

Food & Transport

Eating & Drinking

All breakfasts included.

Food is cheap in Cambodia and you can generally avoid the spicier food if you wish. Cambodia's food is all about the contrasts—sweet and bitter, salty and sour, fresh and cooked. It shares many dishes with its neighbors, and you'll find noodle soup similar to Vietnamese pho, Thailand's refreshing salads and sour soups, Indian-inspired curries, and noodles and stir fries handed down from years of Chinese migration. From Cambodia's days as a French Indochina colony, there's a national love of coffee, pate, and good bread. Baguettes are served with soup, made into sandwiches, and sold by men riding bicycles carrying baskets of long loaves. Western food is also available in most of the places visited.

Transportation

We use a comfortable private bus with air-conditioning. Road conditions are generally good and improving all the time in Cambodia. There will however be the odd bumpy journey as due to monsoon period roads are often being rebuilt.

Weather & Seasonality

When to go

The weather will be hot and humid throughout with temperatures during the day usually between 28ºC and 34ºC. It is only a little cooler at nights. The dry season is late October to May and the monsoon is normally between May and October; though there is an obvious transitional time between those settled periods. The dry season is as it sounds, with hot days and generally clear skies, though you can expect the odd shower.

Joining Instructions

Travelling flight inclusive from London: 15 Days

Flights from London

We normally use the scheduled services of Singapore Airlines (depending on availability). We usually use the overnight flight which arrives in Phnom Penh at 08.30am. You will arrive at your hotel at approximately 10.30am however your room will not be available for check-in until 2pm. You will be able to safely store your luggage at the hotel until check-in time. 

As flight timings and schedules change regularly we recommend you call one of our specialist sales staff or
your agent to confirm up‐to‐date timings. Please note timings may change at a later date and cannot be confirmed until approximately two weeks before departure.


Travelling land only: 13 days starting in Phnom Penh and ending in Siem Reap

Your trip normally starts at our accommodation in Phnom Penh in the afternoon of Day 1 of the itinerary. Details of how to reach the start point are provided in the Final Joining Instructions ‐ sent
approximately two weeks before departure.

As advice about luggage allowances for both hand and hold luggage is subject to change, we suggest you check the airline's website for the latest information prior to your departure. The usual, standard check-in baggage weight allowance is 20kg.

Regional Flights

The Flight Inclusive price is based on a London departure, but we are happy to tailor this to your local or regional airport. Please ask about flights from local or regional airports.

If booking regional flights other than with Exodus, you must allow a minimum connecting time (in addition to the international check-in time) of 1 hour at Gatwick, and 1.5 hours at Heathrow; this is longer than the official minimum, but baggage handling is known to be subject to delays.

What to Take

Essential Equipment

Casual clothes. As it is generally hot and humid, light cotton clothing is recommended for most of the trip. Please note that you will be going through some conservative areas where you should dress modestly. You will also be expected to cover your legs and arms (to the elbow) during visits to some temples and palaces. Sandals are useful as they are cooler and are easier to take off when visiting temples.
A first aid kit is carried on each trip, but you should bring you own first aid kit with diarrhoea
treatment, painkillers, rehydration sachets, plasters and a blister treatment kit. Insect repellent
is also highly recommended. Repellent containing DEET is thought to be highly effective however a natural alternative called Incognito is also very effective and is endorsed by the FCO. There will be plenty of opportunities to get laundry done locally at a very affordable price so fine to pack light.

At time of writing the standard weight limit for hold baggage on the recommended international carrier for this trip is 20kg. We recommend packing only one piece of checked baggage. Advice about luggage allowances for both hand and hold luggage is subject to change, we suggest you check the airline's website for the latest information prior to your departure.

Water Included

Plastic bottles are a big issue in many countries where recycling isn’t yet widely available; they often end up in landfill sites or get burnt, both processes are harmful to the environment and we would like to reduce our impact here. For your trip we have decided to include drinking water in order to reduce the amount of plastic used. This means that safe filtered drinking water will be available throughout which means all you need to do is bring a bottle to re-fill along the way. Please add this to your packing list!

If while packing you find a spare bit of space in your bag please be sure to check out our partner ‘Pack for a Purpose’ to identify items that are needed locally by schools and medical clinics. Your Tour Leader can assist with donating the items. http://www.packforapurpose.org

Optional Equipment

A sun hat and suncream are recommended, torch, a swimming costume will be well used, and a lightweight waterproof jacket or an umbrella.

Bike helmet: these will be available locally however we can't guarantee the quality and fit so please pack your own if you'd rather be confident in the standard and comfort of the helmets.

Practical Information

Passport

Cambodia

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for 6 months beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information below is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their travel agent or the relevant embassies. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.

Visa

Cambodia

Arriving By Flight: An electronic visa (e-Visa) facility is available via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Co-operation website at the cost of $37. A tourist visa can be obtained on arrival for British nationals at most border crossings. Two passport photos are required. The cost is US$30, although an additional express fee of US$5-6 may be incurred at the border. For further information see the FCO site and check under Cambodia / 'Entry Requirements'.

Arriving Overland: A tourist visa can be obtained on arrival for British nationals at most border crossings. Two passport photos are required. The cost is US$30, although an additional express fee of US$5-6 may be incurred at the border. For further information see the FCO site and check under Cambodia / 'Entry Requirements'.

Visa regulations can change without notice: please check the current regulations in good time to obtain a visa if one is required.

Vaccination

Cambodia

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. Malaria risk is low but we suggest that you seek advice from your GP or travel health clinic about malaria prophylaxis.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

The risk of malaria on this trip is slight, but you may wish to consult your GP or travel health clinic for further advice.

Dengue fever and/or Chikungunya are known risks in places visited on this trip. Both are tropical viral diseases spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available for either, and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

The above information can change at short notice; as we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information.

For additional information please visit: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

Local Time

Cambodia's Timezone:
Asia/Phnom_Penh ICT (GMT +07:00)

Electricity

Cambodia's Electricity:

230 Volts. Plug types A, C & G; establishments can often take two round pin plugs and/or two flat parallel pin plugs.

Money

Cambodia's Currency

The national currency of Cambodia is the Cambodian Riel (KHR), with an exchange rate at the time of publication (June 2017) of approximately 5208 to the GBP,  4076 to the USD, 3079 to the CAD, 4564 to the EUR, 3100 to the AUD and 2958 to the NZD.

In practice the economy of Cambodia as far as the visitor is concerned, runs mainly on US dollars however you will receive some change in Riel which can be useful for smaller purchases.

ATM Availability

ATMs are now widespread in SE Asia's cities and are the easiest way of obtaining money. ATMs in Cambodia dispense money in US dollars. Credit card acceptance is now widespread in cities in SE Asia at restaurants and shops catering for tourists.

If you would like to bring cash there will be ample opportunity for you to change this. Sterling and US Dollars are both easily exchanged.

As you will probably be carrying much of your money in cash, we strongly recommend using a money belt.

Extra Expenses & Spending Money

Extra Expenses and Spending Money

You will need about £175‐£225/$280‐360 for all other meals, which will allow you to eat well. Apart
from the food, you should allow money to cover soft drinks (more if you like a beer) and souvenirs.

Optional Excursions 

There are a number of optional activities, which if you wish, your leader can help arrange for you.

Half and full day trips to the mangroves and islands from $20US

Battambang
Bamboo Train from $10US per carriage

Phare The Circus $18US per person
Rosana Broadway Ladyboy Cabaret $15US per person

Tonle Sap Lake floating village boat trip from $15 per person

Tipping

This is entirely at your own discretion however; we suggest that you allow a few pounds for tips for the local guides and staff. In Cambodia, with the increase in tourism, tipping has become customary. The local staff will probably expect some gratuity and we suggest you allow for this. The leader will suggest to the group that they donate a sum of £20/$32 per person towards a kitty on arrival.

This money is then used for tipping of local guides, hotel porters, drivers etc. It is basically to ensure that the hassle is taken out of various activities for you. If you do not wish to contribute to a central pool for tips you are of course free to do so. If you feel that your leaders have performed well over the course of your trip, you may want to show your appreciation of their services. The sum you choose to give is entirely personal, but as a guide, £2/$3 per person per day would be a reasonable starting point.

The 'tipping kitty' explained above is entirely separate from any contribution to the tour leader. Our local staff are paid well and fairly for their work with Exodus.

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 16 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

In an emergency, please contact our 24 hour out of hours service on +44 (0) 844 326 7041.

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel Agent.
