DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This 8-day luxury tour traverses the country, starting in charming Phnom Penh for some insight into Cambodian culture, moving onto the indelible Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields. You'll take time out on a luxurious private island off the coast of Kep, then finish with a trip to the fascinating Angkor Wat temple complex to explore the largest religious monument in the world.

Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Phnom Penh

Your tour begins with a visit to Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields – solemn reminders of the Khmer Rouge regime, and sites integral to understanding the Cambodia of today. You'll also see the ancient capital of Phnom Udong, with its impressive chedis and temples still intact. To close the day, take a relaxing stroll along the Tonle Sap River before retiring to your luxury hotel. The charming and historic Raffles Hotel de Royal is a great option.

DAY 2 Phnom Penh

Today, you'll see the city sights of Phnom Penh with a visit to the National Museum, the majestic Royal Palace and the iconic Foreign Correspondents Club. You'll also be treated to a performance by the Cambodian Living Arts organization and even try out your own moves in a dance class. In the evening, return to your five-star hotel.

DAY 3 Kep

The seaside city of Kep is your next destination. This area is famous for its crab and locally-grown kampot pepper, and you'll enjoy some of the best seafood dishes in Asia here. King Sihanouk's abandoned palace is in the nearby hills – a worthwhile diversion – or you can take a day trip out to the charming Rabbit Island – Koh Tonsay – and enjoy a swim in the Gulf of Thailand's warm tropical waters. Tonight, you'll check into the  Knai Bang Chatt or Veranda Natural Resort.

DAY 4 Koh Rong

Next it's off to the truly indulgent Song Saa Private Island, located off the coast of Sihanoukville. This pristine island is home to a unique luxury resort, which promotes sustainable travel and holistic healing, giving you the opportunity to completely unwind and reconnect with nature. 

DAY 5 Koh Rong

Today you'll explore more of Song Saa Private Island. The resort offers bird-watching, kayaking and snorkeling around the nearby coral reefs. There's also a mangrove tour and the property can organize an intimate beach picnic. The onsite spa offers a wide array of holistic therapies, such as poolside yoga, healing massage, meditation and reiki. 

DAY 6 Siem Reap

Fly to the heritage city of Siem Reap and explore the Angkor temple complex which dates from the late 12th century and is a truly fascinating remnant of Khmer history. Today you get to explore Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm with an archaeologist as your own private guide. After visiting these amazing monuments, head to the local markets and haggle for mementos. For your luxury stay in Siem Reap, we recommend Raffles Hotel, Amansara or the Park Hyatt.

DAY 7 Siem Reap

Today you'll travel to the 10th century Banteay Srei temple, a fascinating red sandstone tribute to the Hindu god Shiva. After that, check out Khmer arts and crafts in a bespoke shopping experience. In the evening, return to your hotel for dinner, or explore the restaurants and street stalls of Siem Reap.

DAY 8 Siem Reap

A trip to Siem Reap is not complete without seeing the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the famous World Heritage Site. For your final day, you'll get to experience this beautiful sight before visiting the Siem Reap School of Arts, where young students learn traditional Khmer apsara dancing. Next, get a feel for the city from a different angle with a helicopter tour, and cap off your trip with a romantic private dinner at Wat Athvea.
