Let WAM show you the cultural highlights of Cambodia and discover the Kingdom of Wonder.
Discover the ancient Angkor Temple complex and explore its origins
As well as exploring the magnificent Angkor Wat temple, your experienced guide will show you around the smaller temples within the ‘small’ and ‘grand’ circuits of Angkor, the finely carved pink sandstone 10th century Banteay Srei temple, and the tucked away Banteay Samre, far from the tourist crowds. You’ll also explore the birth place of the Khmer empire, Phnom Kulen.
See life from the water, Cambodia’s life source
Take a trip on the Tonle Sap lake, the largest fresh water lake in South East Asia. Visit floating villages in this hugely diverse and unique ecosystem with many bird watching opportunities. Discover the flooded forest and spend time with the local community learning their customs and seeing how they adapt their lifestyle to their floating, ever changing environment.
Relax along the scenic river route from Siem Reap to Battambang, seeing how the water ways connect the country giving life. Marvel at the mighty Mekong, glimpse the endangered Irrawaddy dolphins found in her calm pools near the Laos border, and reflect with a sunset cruise in Phnom Penh where the three rivers Tonlé Sap, Tonlé Bassac and the mighty Mekong meet.
Explore far flung temples of the Khmer empire and the natural beauty of Cambodia
From the regal mountain top Preah Vihear on the Thailand border and Ek Phnom in the lush Battambang countryside to Banteay Chhmar an Angkorian temple surrounded by the paddy fields and sugar palm trees so typical of Cambodia. See ancient temples melding into modern day Cambodia and survey the plains of Battambang from the peak of Phnom Sampov. Witness the Asian elephants at home in the forests of Mondulkiri and views of the Mekong river on your cross country journey.
Experience Cambodian life and culture in homestays and local villages
Stay in local homestays and take time to explore a Mekong island and take in typical Cambodian village life where often people’s livelihood largely depends on rice farming and fruit cultivation. See rubber plantations and how rubber is harvested and converted into latex and take a hair-raising ride on the famous Bamboo railway. Appreciate the more modern history of Cambodia from persevered colonial buildings and century old wooden houses, to the Royal Palace and aptly named Silver pagoda. Reflect on the troubled, recent past with visits to monuments to the time of the Khmer Rouge.
End your tour with insight into the Cambodian culture both modern and past and memories to last a lifetime.
