2008 Cambodia Encounter:14 day Cambodia Tour

2008 Cambodia Encounter - 14 days

From an unspoiled beach to the gateway to Angkor and beyond.

Hear the spirit of the Khmer Kingdom in the waves that crash onto an unspoiled beach, see it in the mist that blows through abandoned hill stations and live it on a slow boat journey to Angkor.

There's no better way to get to know Cambodia than to spend time in her countryside. The faded French-colonial façades of riverside Kampot will help you conjure scenes from the country's past, while deserted Kep and remote Kratie will give you a taste of her beautiful provinces. Add to this the excitement you will feel when you climb the ramparts of a thousand-year-old temple with not a tourist in sight, and you will truly understand this captivating kingdom and her people.
