Cambodian Discovery

Join us on this 12 night exploration of Cambodia discovering the wonders and history of this ancient country.

We begin our journey with 2 nights in the capital, Phnom Penh, staying at Raffles Hotel. A hotel brand without peer, this icon of Phnom Penh opened in 1929 and has been host to stays from everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Jackie Onassis.

From Phnom Penh we travel to Cardamom National Park and the stunning Shinta Mani Wild, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World. The property is a radical new fusion of world-class design, all-inclusive hospitality and conservation, where your stay makes a real difference in protecting unique and endangered species.

After our stay in the wild it is time to enjoy a 3 night stay at Six Senses Krabey Island. This 12 hectare private island off the coast of South Cambodia offers guests the chance to do as little or as much as they want. Whether it is swimming in the clear blue sea, hiking through the forest of the island or just relaxing in your villa with its own plunge pool and stunning views, the choice is yours.

After 3 relaxing nights we fly to Siem Reap and home to Cambodia's most famous landmark, the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Angkor Wat. We will have 3 days to explore this ancient complex that was the capital of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to the 15th century.
