About this Cultural Tour

Our ‘Cultural Cambodia’ tour is a wonderful blend of the best that Cambodia has to offer. Perfect at any time of the year, but even better during the green season for those who prefer to skip the beach and instead spend time unearthing more of the country’s secrets, such as Oudong and Battambang.

Get away from the crowds and immerse yourself in traditional Cambodia life with a prolonged stay in Cambodia’s second city Battambang, giving you the opportunity to experience real day-to-day life. You will enjoy the awe-inspiring Banan Temple, Sampou Mountain and the really fun bamboo train ride.

The adventure doesn’t stop here, as you will also explore Cambodia’s historical capital of Oudong and the vibrant, modern capital city, Phnom Penh. This is the perfect way to whet your appetite before venturing to the main archaeological site in Siem Reap and being wowed by the sheer size of the vast temple complexes and the crowning glory of Angkor Wat.

This adventure will leave you wanting more, and we are sure to see you again to discover more of this incredible country.
