Grand Tour of Indochina
The temples of Angkor, the mighty Mekong River, a Ha Long Bay overnight cruise and ancient and modern capitals of South East Asia
Mention the word Cambodia and it conjures up idyllic images of graceful classical dancers and intricate, monumental art, yet also exerts a recollection of its recent tragic history under the control of the Khmer Rouge. Although its international borders are shared with Laos and Thailand on the west and north, and Vietnam on the east and southeast, Cambodia never fails to capture the hearts of visitors.
The mighty Mekong, the world’s 12th longest river, flows through the country sustaining all manner of life along its way through its food, water, transport and commerce, and a number of our Cambodia tours offer the opportunity to cruise along this watery lifeline. At Phnom Penh the river connects with the Tonle Sap (Great Lake), the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and sustainer of a great many special ecosystems. It is also home to the floating villages that encircle the lake.
The temple ruins within the Angkor Archaeological Park around Siem Reap are a UNESCO World Heritage site and regarded as a highlight on many of our tours in Cambodia. Here you’ll see Angkor Wat, the South Gate of Angkor Thom, Bayon, the jungle temple of Ta Prohm and the Terrace of Elephants. Cambodia offers visitors numerous cultural sites, a rich and fascinating history and is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Indochina.
Our Cambodia tours offer an experience perfect for everyone. The dry season runs from October to April, with temperatures getting very hot by April. Within our range of tours, you’ll find at least one departing each month of the year; some tours are available only in the winter months.
No matter whether you’re dreaming of visiting the ancient heritage and scenic beauty of some of the lesser-known areas, or are longing to cruise along the mighty Mekong River, our team of experts would be delighted to help you book your next Cambodia holiday.
Our Cambodia trips can be enjoyed with a group of like-minded travellers, friends or solo with an experienced guide. This allows for a much more personalised experience, with an expert on hand to answer any questions you have about the local culture, cuisine and more.

Weather & Climate
Australia is in the southern hemisphere and the seasons are opposite to those in Europe and North America.
When to go
Spring to summer (October to March): Warm or hot everywhere, tropical in the north, and warm to hot with mild nights in the south. This is the classic tourist season, with northern hemisphere visitors looking to escape winter temperatures and soak up some Antipodean sunshine, although Australia is essentially a year-round destination.
