In fact, it is the legendary temples of Angkor that cast a spell over many people every year. A round trip gives you many more opportunities to get to know the colorful diversity of Cambodia. Here are my 5 ultimate “once across round trip tips” for you!

1. on your own

This is the way I usually prefer. The advantage: you can plan everything the way you want it. The places and sights you want to visit in the country, the journey there, your accommodation – simply everything. You can get tips and suggestions online, such as here at Visit Angkor (I’m really glad you’re here, thank you :-), in Facebook groups or on travel portals such as Tripadvisor.

Printed travel guides about Cambodia* (link to Amazon) are also at the top of the popularity scale when it comes to making the best possible choice for the upcoming trip. Either you plan everything completely in advance or you only book the first 2 to 3 nights and think about where you want to stay for how long on your round trip. For example, with the elephants in Mondulkiri.

2. Round trip all-inclusive: The all-round convenient package

If you like to be comfortable right from the start, then a package tour is just right for you. You travel around the country in small groups, have someone to talk to at all times and get to know like-minded people. The practical thing is that the flight is usually already included and you don’t have to worry about anything else. Except, of course, for your visa and luggage. But your travel provider will provide you with detailed information and other tips. There are several offers online. Here are 5 of them:

  1. Asian Trails: Offers customized package tours to Cambodia, focusing on unique experiences and cultural immersion.
  2. Trails of Indochina: Specializes in tailor-made tours to Cambodia, providing personalized itineraries and insider access to hidden gems.
  3. AboutAsia: Offers sustainable and responsible tours to Cambodia, emphasizing community engagement and authentic cultural experiences.

  5. EXO Travel: EXO Travel offers comprehensive package tours to Cambodia, featuring expertly crafted itineraries and experienced guides to ensure a memorable travel experience.

These specialized providers can offer unique insights and experiences tailored to your preferences while exploring Cambodia.

3. For adventurers: round trip with a real jeep

The Cambodian Travel Partner Lotos Rally takes place once a year. In other words: for 14 days, you drive a jeep through the whole country. Right in the middle of the Cambodian jungle, over ditches and everything that goes with the ultimate adventure, including that movie star feeling. The special thing: You drive the jeep! Yes, you read correctly: YOU. DRIVE. THE. JEEP. A genuine American vintage Jeep from the 60s. So that you can take a break from driving, you share the Jeep with another driver. For example, your own partner or someone from the team if you book the tour alone.

Just in case, mechanics & co. are also included. Just in case we need more than a tire change or something. The itinerary: Phnom Penh, Kep, Kampot, Kirirom, Koh Kong, Veal Veng, Pailin, Battambang and finally Siem Reap, including a visit to the Angkor temples. So you will also get to places that you will not encounter on other round trips.

4. Nathan Horton photography tour – Cambodia

Nathan has been a professional photographer for over 30 years since graduating with a BA Honours in Film, Photography and Video Arts in 1990 in central London. His tours take across Cambodia, representing the culmination of Nathan’s three decades of technical expertise, artistic passion and cultural understanding. 70 % of their current bookings come from guests who have previously embarked a tour with them.

Stops on the 13-day photo tour are: Phnom Penh, Kompong Thom. Preah Vihear, Kompong Phluk, Siem Reap, Battambang and Kampong Chhnang.

5. Take more often a small round trip through Cambodia

Over the years, I have met many people who are drawn to Cambodia again and again. Some have even found the love of their life there and are happily married today. Others come back again and again and while they see their beloved friends again in what feels like their second home, they visit new places.

I can imagine a round trip to the Cambodian islands, for example. Island hopping, so to speak. I’ve already been to Koh Rong Sanloem twice, but its bigger sister Koh Rong, Koh Tonsay (also known as Rabbit Island), Koh Ta Kiev and Koh Thmei must also be very beautiful. You can experience pure luxury on the small private island of Song Saa. It will probably take more than one trip just to visit all the islands :-)

The perfect invitation to Cambodia island hopping, right? :-)

Or you can choose a specific Cambodian province for your round trip. For example, Mondulkiri with its waterfalls and the aforementioned elephants in the Elephant Valley Project. Kratie attracts visitors with its rare Irrawaddy dolphins and Mekong Turtle Conservation Center. There you can observe the last remaining Cantor tortoises.

Either way, once you’ve caught the infamous Cambodia fever, you won’t be able to shake it off. I promise :-)
