If you’ve got a hankering for spicy curries, deep-fried spiders and a tonne of awesome temples, you’ve come to the right place: Cambodia.
There’s more to Cambodia than Angkor Wat. But let’s face it, if you were dropped on earth for a day and that was the place you were dropped, you’d think earth was a pretty incredible place.
Temples are just the tip of the Cambodian iceberg. In Sihanoukville it’s all about beaches and islands and unplugging from the world. In Kampong Cham you’ll find yourself cycling over bamboo bridges while discussing baguettes and fried spiders. In Phnom Penh, you’ll get an insight into the country’s troubled past, and in Siem Reap you’ll get one of the best foot massages you’ve ever had.
Cambodia is wild jungles, sleepy beaches, insane temples, shocking history and brag-about-forever food rolled into one little package. Check it out on a Geckos small group adventure with a new crew of 18-29 year old mates.
What people say
Our tour through Cambodia was great, we really did have a grass roots experience. I came away from the tour in love with the country, and would recommend my tour to anyone looking for an authentic travel experience, with like-minded people.
What people say
Felt like I truly got to see the real Cambodia as the tour guide was a local and extremely knowledgable! All the optional activities especially quadbiking biking were worth doing and the opportunity to stay in a home stay was an amazing experience.
Cambodia travel highlights
See Angkor Wat at sunrise
“Angkor what?” said no one ever. Have your mind blown by the architecture and beauty of this famous Khmer temple complex
Hoon around Phnom Penh in a cyclo
Royal palaces and silver pagodas, old-world charm and new-world traffic – Phnom Penh is, well, rather phenomenal
Choose from miles of sandy beaches in Sihanoukville
Warm weather and warmer locals make Sihanoukville (named after the Cambodian royal family) a great place to chill for a few days

Essential Cambodia, February 2017
This was our first trip with Geckos, and it was a great first experience. Our guide Daro, was there to help us whenever we needed him. He was very good at organising or helping to organise activities that weren't included in the tour. The tour was set at a good pace allowing enough time at each place to take it all in. The way that the trip is set up with only a few included activities really worked for us, being able to do and see what we wanted. All in all a good experience and we would use Geckos again.

The Real Cambodia, January 2017
Would definitely recommend this tour, such a relaxed few days around the cities. Got to see all of the sites and get some hometown information. Lots of opportunities to experience real life Cambodian life and culture.
