Our Cambodia

Interesting fact…

The city of Angkor was the largest pre-industrial city in the world, covering 390 square miles, with the temple complex at the center. The second-largest city, Tikal, Guatemala, covered about 45 square miles.

Must stay…

At the Amansara in Siem Reap, an ultra-luxurious resort that was the former guesthouse of King Sihanouk.

Don’t miss…

A visit to Ta Prohm temple, which looks as if it is being consumed by the jungle. You can almost imagine being there with French explorer Henri Mouhot when he came upon these magnificent ruins.

Favorite carvings…

The pink sandstone carvings at Banteay Srei are spectacularly detailed and evocative. The apsaras look like they might dance off the temple walls.

Graceful capital…

Phnom Penh, with its broad boulevards and elegant mansions, still carries echoes of its colonial days. We can recommend the best restaurants, the liveliest cafes, and the most interesting markets.

Khmer cuisine…

Cambodian food is fragrant with ginger, lemongrass, galangal, turmeric and cardamom. Let us arrange a private Khmer cooking class to initiate you into the complexities of this cuisine.

Iconic image…

No many how many photos you’ve seen of the Angkor temple complex, nothing prepares you for seeing the five towers of the main temple for the first time.

Consider…

A private boat ride on Lake Tonle Sap, a bike ride through the countryside, a water blessing by a monk, yoga at a private temple, or learning about local NGOs.

Shopping…

Beautiful textiles, chic jewelry, elaborate silverwork, Buddha statues, and colorful crafts.

Life imitating art…

The Cambodian Royal Ballet’s elegant dancers will remind you of the graceful apsaras carved on the temple walls. We can arrange VIP tickets to a company performance.

Night swimming…

After dark, the waters off the glorious Song Saa Private Island become aglow with bioluminescence.
