Such a value! Every day offered us opportunities to see and do so much with the group, as well as opportunities to tour on our own. Each destination had a city tour with excellent professional, knowledgeable local guides who not only shared their passion for their city but also the cities history.

Travel tips for our Cambodia tours

What are the most popular activities to do in Cambodia?

One of the world’s oldest civilizations, Cambodia offers a dazzling array of activities from historic to natural wonders. Here are some of the most popular activities to participate in while on Cambodia tours, especially if you are only there for a few days:

  • Explore Angkor Wat. Visiting the magnificent Angkor Wat temple complex in Siem Reap is a can’t-miss activity. Exploring these ancient temple complexes, marveling at their architecture, and learning about the history and culture of the Khmer Empire is a must for many visitors. A bonus is the stunning sunrises and sunsets.
  • Cruise Tonlé Sap Lake. The largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia stretches as far as the eye can see. As you cruise the lake, you’ll pass by floating villages built on stilts and floating platforms. A stop at the floating markets, where locals gather to trade their goods, such as fresh produce, fish, and handicrafts, is a must.
  • Visit the Land Mine Museum. A visit to Cambodia’s Land Mine Museum is a sobering and educational experience that sheds light on the country’s tragic history of landmines and the ongoing efforts to address this issue.

What are the top attractions in Cambodia?

On all our tours to Cambodia, you’ll visit awe-inspiring temples and explore cities with out-of-this-world architecture and history. Here are some of the top attractions in Cambodia that draw visitors from around the world:

  • Angkor Wat. This massive temple complex is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It was built in the 12th century by King Suryavarman II and is considered one of Southeast Asia’s most important archaeological sites. The UNESCO World Heritage site is renowned for its stunning architecture, intricate carvings, and grandeur.
  • Terrace of the Elephants. This grand terrace in Angkor Thom served as a platform for royal processions and ceremonies showcasing the Khmer Empire’s grandeur. It is adorned with intricate bas-reliefs of elephants in various poses, some standing, some kneeling, and some rearing up on their hind legs.
  • Ta Prohm. This magnificent temple located within the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap is surrounded by dense jungle. Massive tree roots have intertwined with the structures, creating a captivating and mystical atmosphere.

When is the best time of year to take Cambodia tours?

The best time to take tours in Cambodia depends on your preferences and the specific experiences you are seeking. Here are some considerations for different seasons:

  • Cool Season (November to February). This is generally considered the best time to visit Cambodia for most travelers. The weather is cooler and drier, making exploring the temples of Angkor, visiting the cities, and enjoying outdoor activities more pleasant.
  • Shoulder Seasons (March and October). The shoulder months of March and October can be a good time for guided tours in Cambodia, as they fall between the hot and rainy seasons. The temperatures are still relatively moderate, and rain is less likely.

What food is popular in Cambodia?

Cambodian cuisine offers a delightful blend of flavors, drawing influences from neighboring countries such as Thailand and Vietnam. Here are some popular dishes you should try on Cambodia tours:

  • Amok. Considered Cambodia’s national dish, Amok is a creamy curry made with fish (typically catfish or snakehead fish), coconut milk, and spices. It is often steamed in banana leaves and served with rice.
  • Khmer red curry. This spicy and aromatic curry is made with a rich paste of lemongrass, galangal, turmeric, garlic, and other spices. It is typically cooked with meat (chicken, beef, or fish), vegetables, and coconut milk. It is best enjoyed with rice or a baguette.
  • Beef skewers (sach ko ang). Marinated in a flavorful mixture of lemongrass, garlic, and soy sauce, beef skewers are often served with a dipping sauce made from lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Fresh spring rolls (lumpia). Like Vietnamese spring rolls, Cambodian fresh spring rolls are made with rice paper filled with fresh herbs, vegetables, cooked meat or shrimp, and sometimes rice noodles. They are often served with a peanut dipping sauce.

What are some cultural customs and etiquette to be aware of in Cambodia?

When visiting Cambodia, it is important to show respect for the local traditions and customs. By being mindful of these cultural customs and practicing respectful behavior, you can enhance your interactions with locals and show appreciation for Cambodia’s rich traditions and customs. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

  • Greetings. The traditional greeting in Cambodia is a slight bow, accompanied by placing the palms together in a prayer-like gesture called the Sampeah. It is customary to offer a greeting and a respectful nod when meeting someone for the first time or entering a home or temple.
  • Dress Code. When visiting temples or other religious sites, it is important to dress modestly and respectfully. Both men and women should cover their shoulders and knees. Wearing shorts, sleeveless tops, or revealing clothing may be considered disrespectful.
  • Tipping. Tipping is not customary in Cambodia but is becoming more common, especially in tourist areas. If you receive good service, a small tip is appreciated but not obligatory.

What to pack for a trip to Cambodia?

When packing for Cambodia vacation packages, it’s important to consider the tropical climate and cultural customs. Here’s a list of essential items to pack:

  • Lightweight and breathable clothing. Pack loose-fitting, lightweight clothing made of breathable fabrics like cotton or linen to help you stay cool in hot and humid weather. T-shirts, shorts, skirts, and lightweight pants are ideal. Long-sleeved shirts and pants will also come in handy to protect against mosquitoes and sunburn.
  • Sun protection. Bring sunscreen with a high SPF, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the intense sun rays.
  • Insect repellent. Cambodia has mosquitos, especially in rural areas and during the rainy season. Pack insect repellent containing DEET or other effective repellents to protect yourself from mosquito bites.
  • Comfortable walking shoes. Tours to Cambodia involve a fair amount of walking, particularly when exploring temple complexes or visiting markets. Bring comfortable walking shoes or sandals that provide good support.
  • Rain gear. If traveling during the rainy season (June to October), it’s advisable to pack a lightweight rain jacket or poncho and a travel umbrella to stay dry during occasional downpours.
  • Travel adapter and charger. Cambodia uses Type A, C, and G power outlets, so make sure to bring a suitable travel adapter for your electronic devices.
  • Reusable water bottle. To stay hydrated, bring a reusable water bottle to fill up with purified water. This will help reduce plastic waste and save you money on buying bottled water.

Once you’ve reserved one of our Cambodia vacation packages, we’ll send you detailed information about what to bring with you. Don’t forget to download the Go Ahead Tour Companion app before you take off, so you’ll have all the info you need about your trip right in your pocket.
