Holiday in Cambodia

The new husband had planned the perfect honeymoon moment: candlelight, a soft tropical breeze and classical violinist to serenade supper next to a Khmer temple's ancient stones. And then. Just hours before. Disaster. The musician was laid low by illness - a key ingredient of the romantic recipe was missing.

Step forward A&K. With its experienced, brilliantly connected 35-strong team on call round-the-clock, no holiday ingredient is unobtainable. Within 45 minutes, a superb replacement violinist was on her way to Phnom Penh airport. Music was still the food of love.

As it was for honeymooners Hugh and Rebecca. They were expecting a simple picnic, albeit under the gaze of a Hindu deity carved nine centuries before. Instead they were amazed to find A&K staff serving a sumptuous six-course meal, peaking with a young girl from Siem Reap playing traditional love songs on a xylophone.

Of course Abercrombie & Kent's luxury Cambodian holidays aren't just for newlyweds. Angkor Wat, the walled complex of mesmerising temples - the planet's largest religious monument - is of huge historic, cultural and architectural importance. It draws hordes of tourists. And that provides another opportunity for our knowledgeable guides, including academic experts, to shine. They'll escape the crowds, show you the best sunrise viewpoint and reveal tiny but fascinating details. They'll also arrange exclusive insider access, setting up meals and performances outside opening hours in unbelievable settings, or take you to witness current excavations with an Indiana Jones air of excitement.

Angkor near Siem Reap has iconic status, but there's far more to Cambodia where holidays are often packaged with Vietnam. Phnom Penh has palaces, pagodas and superb museums along with French colonial hotels. And the country has a glorious coast - it recently opened its first over-water resort - with Cambodian beach holidays around Sihanoukville increasingly popular. Leave A&K to arrange the music and your diverse holiday or honeymoon is complete.

Guest Testimonial

Thank you for organising  a fantastic holiday (Annie Jensen)

The guides and drivers were helpful considerate and polite.  All the guides were informative in their own way which we found interesting.  As we passed the children they were delighted to see us and practice their English 'Hello'.  We spoke to local people and children, everybody was very pleasant.  The cycling distances were just right, we had time to stop and take photo's and admire the scenery.  It was just superb!
