Discover beautiful beaches, learn about the country’s difficult history at the S-21 Prison, and taste some delicious cuisine.
The Angkor Wat temples are so incredible that Cambodia put them on their national flag. Stare into the eyes of serene stone faces, leap over roots that have burst through ruins, and watch the sunrise over a spire-strewn horizon. But on this trip, we show you there’s more to Cambodia than the temples. Discover the beautiful beaches of Koh Rong, learn about the country’s difficult history at the S-21 Prison, and taste some delicious cuisine at a local social enterprise restaurant that trains local street youth in hospitality. Go beyond the temples and discover the culture, cuisine, and curiosities of Cambodia.
We spend 8 days exploring Cambodia. We visit Phnom Penh, Kampot, Sihanoukville, Koh Rong Samloem, Battambang, Siem Reap.
