10 Day Guided - Phnom Penh to Siem Reap

Experience stunning Cambodia over 10 action-packed days that’ll take you from World Heritage listed sites to off the beaten track destinations and everywhere in between.

You’ll discover the bustling capital of Phnom Penh via Tuk Tuk, experience the picturesque Koh Rong Island, visit the world’s largest temple, Angkor Wat, discover the fascinating local culture and rich history and relax on beautiful beaches and party the night away and much more.
Cruising through the crazy streets of Phnom Penh by Tuk Tuk, meeting friendly locals and sampling a wide array of delicious street food, learning about Cambodia’s dark history and fascinating culture, discovering the crystal clear waters and white sands of Koh Rong island and experiencing the incredible Angkor Wat are just some of the incredible moments you’ll have backpacking in Cambodia.

Cambodia is a profoundly beautiful nation with a dark but fascinating past. Nestled in the heart of South East Asia it is a country of incredible & ancient wonders. From the white sands and lazily swaying palm trees of picturesque Koh Rong island, to the awe-inspiring and immensely spiritual Angkor Wat temple, Cambodia will leave an impression that will last a lifetime. The majority of our group members are solo travellers, so joining one of our group tours is a great way to meet people and make friends.

TRIP ITINERARY

Intro to Cambodia

10 Day Adventure

Day 1: CAMBODIA INTRO BEGINS

When you land in Phnom Penh after your flight we’ll be at the airport to meet you and take you to the hotel. You’ll have plenty of time to recover from your flight, chill out and meet everyone in your group. That night we’ll head out for our first dinner and drinks together.

Day 2: S21 PRISON AND KILLING FIELDS

After a tuk tuk tour through the crazy streets of Phnom Penh, we’ll make two important stops at the S21 Prison and the original Killing Fields to learn about the dark history of this fascinating country. A difficult day, but a must to properly understand the journey of the Cambodian people in recent decades. That evening we’ll head for dinner and drinks at a local street bar, followed by some of Phnom Penh’s best nightlife. (B)

Day 3: KAMPOT, KAYAKING & SUNSET BOAT TRIP

Today we get off the beaten path and head to the peaceful countryside province of Kampot, a unique mix of dilapidated French colonial buildings, emerald green rice paddy fields and palm tree-lined rivers. The next two nights are spent by the beautiful riverside with plenty of time for swimming, tubing and relaxing. That afternoon we’ll kayak down the river, soak up the laid-back daily life of the locals before heading out on a stunning sunset boat ride. (B)

Day 4: LOCAL MARKET, PEPPER PLANTATION & COOKING CLASS

Kampot is known to have some of the best pepper in the world! So this morning we’ll explore the local markets and visit a unique pepper plantation to source ingredients for our traditional Khmer cooking class. Later that day we’ll learn first hand how to make some of Cambodia’s most authentic and delicious meals. (B, L)

Day 5: ARRIVE KOH RONG

It’s now time to experience the most beautiful beaches in Cambodia! We’ll take a bus and a fast ferry to the stunning tropical island of Koh Rong and check into our traditional Khmer style beach bungalows. The afternoon can be spent lazing on the beach or exploring the island before we head out for dinner and a party on the beach! (B, L)

Day 6: ISLAND BOAT TRIP & SNORKELLING

All aboard our private longtail boat to some of the best snorkel spots around the islands, including the famous and secluded ‘long beach’. We’ll chill out on the whitest sands on the island, swim in turquoise blue water and top up our tans, before soaking up a beautiful sunset as we cruise back home to our beach bungalows. (B)

Day 7: BEACH TIME, KHMER MASSAGE & OVERNIGHT BUS

Enjoy the morning relaxing with a traditional Khmer massage on the beach, take in the serene beauty of Koh Rong one last time before we catch the fast ferry back to the mainland. We’ll have dinner in Sihanoukville and prepare for our overnight bus journey where you’ll have your own bed on the bus. (B)

Day 8: SIEM REAP & FLOATING VILLAGE

Arrive early in Siem Reap with the morning to relax by the hotel pool. From there we’ll venture out to the rural areas and discover some traditional floating villages surrounded by lush rice fields, lotus flowers and flooded forests. That evening we’ll experience a unique and authentic Cambodian performance, which supports the education and improvement of the lives of the local children and families. (B, L)

Day 9: SEIM REAP & ANGKOR WAT

We’ll wake for sunrise and travel by tuk-tuk to the absolutely mind-blowing and world famous Angkor Wat; the largest temple in the world! A local guide will join us to explain the fascinating history and surrounding temples, including Ta Prohm where Tomb Raider was filmed. A true once in a lifetime experience! (B, D)

Intro to Cambodia 2

Selection of excursions were suited to our interests

Kudos to Sawyer, our travel agent from Downunder Travel, who did a fantastic job of arranging our trip to Fiji. Her attention to detail was impeccable.

We were delayed for takeoff from Calgary to San Francisco due to weather and Sawyer helped us with our hotel bookings and transfers en-route to San Francisco. As well, she automatically readjusted our Fiji itinerary to coincide with our missed arrival dates in Fiji.

When we were planning our trip, we told Sawyer what our interests were, and her selection of excursions were exactly suited to our interests. Her choice of accommodations was excellent.

Ghan Platinum Trip

Just to let you know we arrived safely back home late yesterday after a wonderful trip. Thank you for setting it all up. We saw almost no rain but the day that it did rain was when we arrived in Darwin. Having Platinum [The Ghan] meant our transfer bus was right beside the train whereas the Gold passengers had quite a walk to get to the station. The train is almost a kilometer long so it meant a walk in the rain for some.

G. Bernhardt

Southern Africa 25 Day Tour

“Heard about this place through a friend and decided to inquire about a trip to Southern Africa. Jason did a fantastic job with very little time and set up a 25 day trip, flights included. Was excellent at every stage and everything went off without a hitch. Would absolutely recommend, and will most definitely be a repeat customer.”

Melbourne, Cairns & Sydney!

The tours in Melbourne, Cairns and Sydney were exceptional.  The guides were all very informative and helpful when explaining the sites, sometimes throwing in their own personal stories too.  In Melbourne we enjoyed: the hop on/off bus tour, the Central Historical tram, the Treasury and ANZAC Memorial is is very worthwhile, The Great Ocean Road with our small group tour was fabulous and the Penguin Parade with underground viewing is definitely a must-see!  The Cairns tours are remarkable; I enjoyed our small personalized group travel to Frankland Island (including guided walk), the Kuranda Train, Skyrail and Hartley’s offered a great variety and St. Monica’s Cathedral with its stained glass windows are a hidden gem!  In Sydney, we enjoyed so much; the Ferry boat was easy to manage, The Sydney Opera House was definitely a highlight, our Harbour Cruise was fantastic and our Blue Mountains tour with hike was lovely, definitely another must-experience.

In addition to the terrific tours, our flights and connections were seamless and the personal touches and the variety of experienced offered on this trip was one of a kind!  I look forward to working with you again in the not too distant future!

3 Week Australia Trip!

Our family would like to thank you for coordinating an amazing trip to Australia!  We only had 3 weeks but we were able to experience so much with an itinerary that was seamless and worry free!

Every spot was memorable, from the Grampians to Kangaroo Island, to a liveaboard on the GBR and the bright lights of Melbourne and Sydney  – a spectacular country and can’t wait to go back!

We definitely recommend Downunder Travel and are grateful to Andree for all her help and expertise in creating a wonderful adventure!

Maureen

Wonderful Thailand and Myanmar!

Thanks for organizing and planning our recent trip to Thailand and Myanmar. We had a wonderful, magical month on some Thai islands, and tremendously enjoyed Mandalay and particularly, Bagan. The hot air balloon ride, is not to be missed.  Our next trip to that part of the world , we will certainly use your expertise Andree.

T. Baker

New Zealand Self-Drive

“We spent 6.5 wonderful weeks exploring both Islands in New Zealand. Jason met with us to understand our interests and a sense of where we hoped to travel while there. Accommodations, day trips, half day tours etc all ran without a hitch. At one point we thought we might be seeking medical assistance at a drop in clinic. Not sure about the process with Medical Insurance, we sent him a note to which he quickly responded and we really appreciated. We are very thankful for the arrangements and bookings that helped make the time there truly great. Thanks Jason.”

D. Nixon

Best Vacation Ever

Jason created the Best Vacation Ever for us – a month long trip to Australia travelling the east coast, the Red Center and south. All arrangements, locations, excursions, transfers were well executed which resulted in a stress free vacation for us! Thanks so much for your attention to all the details. Would definitely recommend that others trust Jason to make their entire trip as spectacular as ours was.

Super Thank-You for completely arranging our 5 week trip!

We would like to say a super Thank You to Jason Webb at Downunder Travel. For completely arranging our 5 week trip to New Zealand, Australia, Bora Bora, Paul Gauguin Cruise in Tahiti & return to Canada. Jason booked all our airline travel, chauffeur pick ups, & travel dates. These were very convenient scheduled & were all on time. Twelve air planes in 34 days. Jason had the knowledge & experience to pre-book excellent hotels, exceptional tours & timely transfers. We had a memorable, enjoyable carefree trip due to Jason’s knowledgeable preparation.

We will be recommending you to anyone we know

We absolutely loved our vacation, Jason!  Kudos to you with your recommendations, bookings, etc.  Everything came off without a hitch –  excursion pickups, airport shuttles were always on time.  We made out great driving on the wrong side of the road, and steering wheel on wrong side of car lol.  Air New Zealand was a great choice for our main flights, flight attendants came to our seats and thanked us personally for flying with Air New Zealand.  Again, we have to thank you so much Jason for helping us plan such a fantastic vacation – such a great time.  Hopefully we will vacation in another area you sell and we’ll need your services again.  We will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know.

Australia, Africa, and more!

“A group of 9 travelers wanted to do a tour of Australia. 4 of us have been using Jason at Downunder Travel since 2005. We are a group with agricultural interests so we were hoping to see the diversity of Australia with as many ag components as possible. We met with Jason and he compiled an itinerary for us which gave us another trip of a lifetime. Jason’s attention to detail is truly amazing. Everything happened without a glitch which makes for a worry-free holiday. He also allowed for some free days if anything needed rearranged. We are already planning our next holiday with his company. Kudos to Jason!”

I wouldn’t have put it all together the way you did!

I just wanted to thank you for all the great advice and information that you provided for our recent trip to Australia.  I am the type of traveller that tends to search on in the internet and book things on my own, so using a travel agent for our trip wasn’t my first thought. However the trip we had planned was quite complicated with multiple destinations which involved several flights, varied accommodation,  local transportation, and tours  and I know I wouldn’t have been able to put it all together the way you did.  This was a trip that we booked with short notice which made it even more complicated. Once we met with you,  I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders,  and I had confidence in your recommendations. You really know Australia and it shows. I truly felt that we had a better vacation because of you. The tours in Tasmania and the Daintree were spectacular,  and everything went very smoothly from start to finish.  I felt that we received excellent service and advice and we really got great  value for our travel dollars. We have recommended you to several friends,  and will be calling on you again in the future if our travels take us ‘down under’!

The Baillie family

African Safari

“Our group of 4 travelled to Africa, 4 different countries, many flights, hotels and tours under the guidance of Jason at Down Under Travel. The trip was amazing especially the safaris. Jason’s attention to detail made this trip outstanding. Truly a trip of a lifetime that was arranged perfectly. Don’t hesitate to book with this company, you will not be disappointed.”

M. O'Bryan

A Phenomenal South Pacific Adventure

A special thanks for putting my phenomenal South Pacific Adventure of a lifetime together.  Much appreciation for all the hard work that you have endured to make my trip a most memorable adventure.  I have totally enjoyed every aspect of the trip.  I will definitely recommend this itinerary to anyone looking for a trip of a lifetime.

A. Millette

NZ and Cook Islands

“Jason planned our 3 week honeymoon to New Zealand and Cook Islands in October 2016. Jason was very knowledgeable and saved us so much time not trying to plan the trip details ourselves! We had an amazing time, with everything going smoothly. Overall, happy to recommend his service to anyone else planning to go “down under” 🙂 .”

The best travel agent I have ever dealt with

Thanks so much for being so throughout. You are the best travel agent I have ever dealt with.  We are going to need your help again when we travel to Singapore and Japan.
