This luxury tour of Cambodia offers just the right combination of everything − ancient temples, culture, traditions, nature, conservation, exquisite cuisine, and the generous warmth of its people. Despite the country’s dark past, it now stands as a symbol of raw beauty and resilience, and visitors are welcomed everywhere. Marvel at the temples of Angkor on a private visit with an archeologist from the World Monuments Fund and from above by hot air balloon, enjoy a lavish tented camp experience and paradisiacal private island stay, cruise the Mekong River on a luxurious riverboat, and so much more. This tour can be tailored in accordance with your personal wishes.
Siem Reap & The Temples of Angkor
Discover the UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor over three days of incredible exploration. Witness the unmissable spectacle of an amazing sunrise at Angkor Wat, fly over the fairy landscapes of Siem Reap in a hot air balloon, see the highlight temples of Bayon, Ta Prohm, and ‘the Woman’s Citadel’ of Banteay Srei, and obtain exclusive behind-the-scenes access to one of Angkor’s most famous temples, Bakheng, hosted by a World Monuments Fund specialist for an educational insight into temple restoration at the site.
Interspersed with your daytime activities, your evenings will be equally enchanting, as you’re treated to a romantic dinner in the tranquil surrounds of the rural Villa Chandara on the outskirts of Siem Reap, embark on a sunset cruise to see the floating villages of Cambodia’s famous Tonlé Sap, and amazed by the Phare Circus show, during which you’ll be entertained with dance, theater, original live music, juggling, gymnastics, and breath-taking circus arts that are used to tell Cambodian stories from recent history, folklore and modern society.
Tour Phnom Penh by tuk-tuk. Admire the stately columns of the Royal Palace, see the National Museum and the Silver Pagoda. If you wish, learn about Cambodia’s tragic past at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, and the Killing Fields at Choeung Ek; it’s not a warm experience but it is essential if you want to understand what happened in Cambodia during the time of the Pol Pot regime.
The next day, unravel the culinary secrets associated with Khymer cuisine, by participating in a cookery class. You will have the opportunity to source your ingredients at a bustling market, before being expertly led through the creation of three dishes. This is complemented by a visit to Kampot, famed for its black pepper plantations—where you will also embark on a charming sunset cruise down the Kampot River—and the nearby crab market at Kep.
Luxury Tented Camp & Private Island Stays
Spend three nights deep in the heart of Cambodia’s untouched wilderness − a landscape of dense rainforest, fast-flowing rivers, and cascading waterfalls − in a pioneering, ultra-luxe retreat of world-class design, hospitality, and conservation. Your stay here makes a real difference in protecting unique and endangered species. Spread out over 800 acres, this private nature sanctuary is the perfect tented basecamp for adventure activities across the Southern Cardamom National Park.
From the rainforest to the reef as you then escape by boat to Song Saa Private Island, an intimate escape to a far-flung archipelago paradise. Inspired by its surroundings, this luxury resort offers serenity and a deep connection with the environment, having been created with sustainability in mind, built from local materials, by local hands, and infused with local art and soul. Relax on a three night getaway and detach from the world with a pristine private beach, spacious wooden villas, heavenly spa sanctuaries and a preserved coral reef.
Mekong Cruise To Saigon
Finally, your luxury cruise on the Mekong River awaits. Step aboard the divine Aqua Mekong, with its indoor and outdoor bars, relaxed-yet-refined lounging and dining areas, a plunge pool, outdoor movie theater, screening room, observation deck, fitness center, spa, and boutique, and more. But it’s the level of service and immersive cultural discovery as you explore the Mekong Delta where this cruise really shines. Enjoy a Khmer “Apsara” performance, take the local rickshaw, visit a mat weaving village and local homes, and stop at the famous Vinh Trang Pagoda as you make your way to Saigon.
