Holiday in Cambodia

A lush, calm country with welcoming people, Cambodia's fascinating ancient and modern history is complemented by attractive countryside and a relaxed atmosphere low on hassle. No trip to Cambodia is complete without a visit to the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat. Images simply can't do justice to the architecture, intricate carvings, pervasive spiritual atmosphere and sheer scale of the site, where over 100 temples built between the 9th and 12th centuries are scattered over 3,000 square kilometres of forest. Once a sleepy riverside village, Siem Reap now serves as the gateway to the Angkor temple complex and is alive with markets, restaurants and bars. Sadly, Cambodia's recent history has a much darker side, and various museums, memorials and harrowing burial grounds serve as a reminder of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. Phnom Penh is the place to learn about this side of Cambodian history, but it's also where you'll witness the optimistic spirit of Cambodia's people, who display an admirable resolve and openness. Rural Cambodia is delightfully mellow, dotted with plantations and rice fields as well as virgin forest, waterfalls and lakes which provide the perfect backdrop for walking, swimming and nature spotting. A new road has opened up the less-frequented regions of Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri, where you can enjoy unspoilt landscapes and learn about the many minority groups who reside here. Southern Cambodia is home to small colonial beachside towns and tranquil beaches and islands, including the beautiful Koh Rong archipelago.

Cambodia with A&K
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!
