We have just returned from a well planned and executed tour of Cambodia. Our tour company was easy to deal with and created a programme to meet all our needs. The meet and greet, drivers and the tour guides were excellent and could not do more for us. Siem Reap was a fascinating city with so many interesting ancient temples, we could possibly have stayed for 4 days. Battambang was less interesting and was reached via a long but fascinating drive through the rice field. With hindsight I am not sure I would have visited this city. Phnom Penh was not as impressive as expected and the 2 days spent there were adequate, with the stay at Raffles Hotel, a highlight. We then drove to the 4 rivers floating lodge which was tranquil and luxurious. The only thing that we had not truly appreciated was the many hours we spent stuck in the van travelling from one place to another.
We all loved Ta Phrom temple. The temple complex met all our expectations. It was amazing to see the tree roots entwined with the bricks and the buildings still standing after all these years. The tour guide organised a small treasure hunt throughout the complex which was greatly enjoyed by both adults and children alike! This was definitely our favourite atmospheric temple. You have to see it to experience it , with or without the crowds!
The ATV tour through the rice fields was another highlight, although the initial drive on the main road was a little hair - raising at times!
These were the highlights but overall we had a memorable trip. We found the Cambodian's to be warm and friendly at all times and would recommend the trip to everyone.
As said previously we may have stayed an extra day in Siem Reap, may not have chosen to go to Battambang. May have flown between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh and would have taken more of an interest in the length of the drives as several days were spent travelling for most of the day.
