We’ll get the ball rolling this morning by driving to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s lively capital. Get your cards ready or pile up the podcasts, as we’ll be on the road for at least 6 hours. Watch the landscape unfold from your window, as we pass rice paddies, jungle thickets and small towns. Once we touch-down in the city, check into your hotel and then we’ll head out to explore the city streets. From the vibrant markets to graceful tree-lined boulevards and a mass of beeping horns, this is a city that demands your attention. Catch a glimpse of its ornate palaces and temples before grabbing a cold beer on one of the riverside promenades to bask in its irrepressible spirit. Then hop aboard a boat for an exclusive sunset cruise, as the river glistens with dusk.

Day 4: Phnom Penh – Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum & Choeung Ek Memorial

To fully immerse yourself in a country, you need to understand its history, so today we’ll come face-to-face with Cambodia’s tragic past with a guided walk around the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. More than 20,000 people were held and tortured in this notorious prison in the 1970s, under the Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot. We’ll also visit the Choeung Ek Memorial, where a stupa made up of 8,000 human skulls marks the site of the infamous Killing Fields. Standing in the fields today, it’s hard not to be overcome by the desperately sad past of a place where so many Cambodians – friends, family and neighbours – lost their lives.

Day 6: Siem Reap – Angkor Wat

Temple-hop with your local guide and make the most of your visit to the world-famous Angkor complex. The temples, dating back as far as the 9th century, were believed to represent the cosmic world and were set in perfect balance, symmetry and composition. The intricately carved bas-reliefs and architectural designs are mind-blowing and there are spectacular photo opportunities at any time of day. Watching a sunrise or sunset is a must. The ruins are scattered over an area of some 160 square kilometres, but the main cluster of temples is close to Siem Reap, so there will be plenty of time to fully appreciate the great archaeological sites of Angkor Wat, the Bayon and the jungle-covered Ta Prohm.

Wander around the Old French Quarter and Old Market to soak up the enchanting mix of styles. Alternatively, head back into Angkor Complex to immerse yourself in fascinating cultural history. Cambodia’s mighty Khmer Dynasty stronghold and UNESCO World Heritage site dates back to the 12th century, forming an ancient world of ruins whose perfect balance, symmetry and composition are believed to represent the cosmic world (as well as making great photographs!). Wander through the archaeological maze to see intricately carved temples reveal themselves between low-hanging jungle vines, along with a glimpse into the spiritual life of modern-day Cambodia. On the other hand, if you just fancy a deep chill by the pool, it’s all yours. Forget the real world and embrace the warm sun and cool waters – you deserve it.

Come evening, we’ll round off this epic adventure with a delicious feast in a local restaurant.
