Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to Siem Reap

Fist pump for Cambodia! Settle in and relax at our cushy hotel in the heart of Siem Reap before group introductions. Then take part in a complimentary feast of local Khmer cuisine for the welcome dinner. Out on the town afterwards for a proper group introduction (and ice-breaker) with your new travel mates.

Day 2

Kulen National Park & 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 ancient jungle temples, 16th Century Reclining Buddha, and Kulen Waterfalls. After, chill poolside, check out the many local markets, or grab a ticket to the Cambodian circus that supports underprivileged Khmer youth. Up (very) early for sunrise an ancient Angkor Wat.

Day 3

Sunrise At Angkor Wat

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 4

Floating Village Boat Tour

There are 10,000 Khmer locals who live in the ancient floating village of Komphong Khleang. Life is entirely dependent on the ebb and flow of the local river fed from Tonle Sap Lake (the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia) and the Mekong Delta. Take a private boat along this river system to the lake and witness the everyday life of the smiley people who call this home. After, a local family welcomes us in for a lunchtime feast. Then off to the capital city of Phnom Penh!

  • Meals Included Breakfast, Lunch

Day 5

Explore Cambodian Culture

Cambodian culture is on full display in Phnom Penh! Explore the sacred Silver Pagoda and walk the grounds of the sprawling Royal Palace. After, start to understand the historical hardships this beautiful country has gone through at the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. This day is equal parts humbling, heart-breaking, and unforgettable.

Day 6

Koh Rong, So Right!

Off to the islands we go! Catch the ferry with your mates to Cambodia’s tropical island paradise of Koh Rong. This will be home for the next two nights. Escape to the stunning beaches that scattered across the island, grab some sun, and wait for the next-level nightlife to heat up. Chill out at your beach bungalow or get involved with the beach party? Time to make the tough decisions.

Day 7

Island Hopping In Paradise

Island hop along the emerald waters of Koh Rong. We head to the deserted islands spotted along the Cambodian coast for a full day of sea, sun, and sand. Stops will be made for snorkeling, swimming, and to serve up some traditional BBQ for lunch. Then catch sunset before hopping into the catch the magical experience of swimming with the glowing plankton. The nightlife here also rarely disappoints!

Day 8

Sunset River Cruise

Enjoy one more morning in white-sand paradise. There’s no wrong option here. We catch the ferry back to the mainland then head to our charming home away from home in Kampot. The firefly boat ride departs, the sun sets over Mount Bokor on the horizon, and the fireflies put on a show!

Pepper Plantation Cooking Lesson

Time to learn how to make some authentic Khmer Cuisine in the Cambodia countryside! Before that, we tour the sprawling pepper plantation where the class takes place and see how the "world's best pepper" is produced. Free time options after include Arcadia Waterpark (a backpacker favourite), heading to the summit of Bokor Mountain National Park, or catching a tuk-tuk to the seaside crab market in Kep for a fresh-as-it-gets seafood feast.

Kayak 'The Green Cathedral' & Last Meal
