A complex history, rich Khmer architecture and the stunning ruins of Angkor Wat.

Cambodia is known to the world for two things: The magnificent Angkor Wat temple and the horrific rule by the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot.

Today the country is recovering and rebuilding itself, and tourism plays a key role in Cambodia’s renewal.

Millions of tourists come to visit The Angkor Archaeological Park and explore the hundreds of ancient temple ruins, many being recaptured by sprawling trees and creeping roots.

Siem Reap, the closest city to Angkor Wat, has a bustling night market full of local artwork, wooden carving and Khmer textiles. 

While most tourists visiting Cambodia stop at Siem Reap, Wayfairer invites travellers to explore the country and the history in more depth.

Visit the floating village of Kompong Phluk and discover community initiatives that promote sustainable tourism and offer travellers a chance to interact with locals.

Try your hand working alongside locals farmers and fishermen on the island of Ko Trong as part of a sustainable tourism project, and round off your trip by heading to the Mekhong River to meet the rare Irrawaddy dolphins.

Featured Trips

Fewer tourists venture off the beaten track in Cambodia, but those who do are rewarded with a glimpse of real Cambodia, and what life after the Khmer Rouge is really like. Our Complete Cambodia Holiday takes you to Ko Trong island for a tour of sustainable tourism projects that connect island residents with visitors. The Cambodia Explorer package takes you deep into the beautiful Kirirom National Park for a night in a local homestay.

When To Go

The best time to visit Cambodia is between November and March, when the temperatures are warm and the humidity is low. However this is also the busiest time for tourists, and Angkor Wat is especially busy over Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year. Monsoons cover the country from May until August, and April is the hottest month of the year. For more information see our 'When to Travel to Cambodia' page. 

Where To Go

Siem Reap, and the Angkor Archaeological Park are a must visit on trips to Cambodia. For archaeological lovers, it’s worth spending 4-5 days exploring the vast area of Angkor. The countryside of Cambodia is quite rural and under developed, but offers unique homestays with locals and chances to explore some interesting sustainable tourism initiatives involving reforestation, education and community development.
