Getting a taste of Cambodia’s turbulent past as you journey through the jungle once home to the Khmer Rouge.

Watching the sunset from the grounds of the Angkor Wat Temple complex. As the sun goes down, the iconic towers are reflected in the ceremonial pools in front of the temple to provide a truly incredible spectacle.

Staying at the Hotel de la Paix which is perfectly situated to give you easy access to explore the markets during the day and enjoy what Siem Reap’s nightlife has to offer.

Cambodia always comes in near the top of Far East travel wish lists. So these days it's all about getting off the beaten path and really delving into the heart of this fascinating country. Just beneath the tourist veneer there are some incredible landscapes, a vibrant culture and a wealth of history (much of it turbulent) to take in - and believe us, it's worth putting in the extra effort to find it.
