On a tour of Cambodia, you'll explore massive Buddhist and Hindu temples, unique cultures, ancient ruins & pristine white sand beaches. A cruise on the Mekong River will acquaint you with the traditional villages and hospitable people of Cambodia and the bustling capital of Phnom Penh. Try your hand at cooking traditional Cambodian food or biking through stunning landscapes. Visit the world's largest religious monument, Angkor Wat, which was originally constructed as a Hindu temple in the 12th century and has captured the hearts of millions of travelers. This ornate structure is the crown jewel of the fascinating ruins in Siem Reap. Nestled between Thailand and Vietnam, Cambodia is a largely unexplored corner of Southeast Asia and provides a well-preserved window into its centuries-old history and culture. Adventure Life offers you the most personal, customized and memorable Cambodia tour packages.

Cambodia Travel Highlights

It has been said that Cambodia is a place of gods and demons - the Angkor temples hearken back to a proud time of the Khmer civilization, while the genocide museums honor those who were lost in the shadow of the Khmer Rouge genocide. Although it only occupies a tiny corner of the Indochinese Peninsula, Cambodia has a rich culture that is waiting to be shared with you. Popular destinations on Adventure Life Cambodia tours include:
  • Siem Reap - Considered the gateway to the Angkor region, this resort town is a buzzing center of activity and home to legendary ruins.
  • Angkor Wat - Explore the largest religious monument in the world at this pristinely preserved UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Phnom Penh - The French-built capital of Cambodia is a gem of culture, commerce, and industry, and makes the perfect starting point for many tours of the country. 
  • Mekong River - As the major artery from the country's northern border in Laos to its southern border in Vietnam, this provides the perfect setting for breathtaking river cruises.
  • Kampong Chhnang  - the major port city for accessing Tonlé Sap River, Tonlé Sap Lake, and the greater Mekong River. 
  • Tonlé Sap - Known commonly as "Great Lake," you'll see floating houses, flooded forests, and traditional villages all on Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake.
  • Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum - What was once the site of a horrific execution center during Pol Pot's reign of terror between 1975-1979 has now been converted into a museum that honors those who lost their lives.

Cambodia Travel FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to Cambodia?

US citizens do need a visa to visit Cambodia. Tourist visas are not hard to get, and we can help point you in the right direction throughout the process. Check the visa requirements for more specific information.

Is tipping customary in Cambodia?

You can give the waiter around a dollar, the hotel porters around a dollar per bag, a dollar for taxi drivers, five dollars for personal chauffers, and between $15-20/day for a private guide.

What is internet access like in Cambodia?

Internet throughout Cambodia is relatively widespread and reliable, and WiFi is increasingly prevalent. You can count on having internet in the major cities and developed parts of the country, but as you get into the more isolated parts of the country, you probably won't be able to find access.

Can I use my cell phone while in Cambodia?

It's likely that you will be out of range of cell towers for the majority of your trip in Cambodia, but if you have a GSM-capable phone then you can also ask your service provider to unlock it so that you can purchase a SIM chip once you arrive and access the local network. Connecting to WiFi or purchasing an international plan from your provider might also be options for you.

Do I need power adapters?

You will either encounter plugs that are type A (US-style two flat prongs), C (European style two round prongs), or G (three flat prongs that are set on a triangle base). Power is 230v, but most US 110v appliances don't require a power converter.

What are the toilets like in Cambodia?

Toilets throughout Asia, especially in the less developed countries, tend to be squat style toilets that require you to bring your own toilet paper. The hotels and ships will feature bowl toilets, but in all restrooms, it's necessary that you throw the toilet paper in the wastebasket and not the toilet itself.

Can I drink the water in Cambodia?

While you cannot drink the tap water in Cambodia, we make sure that you always have access to clean bottled or purified drinking water.

Are credit cards accepted in Cambodia? Will I be able to find ATMs?

Each year, credit and debit cards and ATMs are becoming more popular and widely used throughout Cambodia. Most tourist destinations accept credit cards and have accessible ATMs. Almost all tourism businesses and an increasing number of mid-range businesses accept cards as well. Of course, once you head towards the more isolated parts of the country, it is not as common to find ATMs or vendors that accept cards.

Should I purchase travel insurance?

Probably! While it's not a necessary expense, we always recommend that you travel with insurance. TravelGuard offers several comprehensive options. Read more on our Once You're Booked page.
