Explore the culture of Cambodia including Phnom Penh, Kampong Thom and Angkor Wat.

On this tour you'll start your trip in Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital. The city was once considered the most beautiful of the French built cities in Indochina. Despite the effects of the violence of Cambodia's recent history the city is beautiful and worth a few days.

You'll then set off on a drive across the Cambodian countryside to areas that don't see many tourists. Highlights include seldom-visited ruins near Kampong Thom.

Finally you'll arrive for several days in Siem Reap where you'll discover the wonders of Angkor Wat and Tonle Sap, Cambodia's largest lake.

This tour can be done in reverse and you can shorten the itinerary by flying between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
