Tours in Cambodia
Cambodia is a fascinating country. On this page we offer 8 great tours in Cambodia. Having been there now 5 times, I can easily say I would love to go back, explore Angkor for the 5th time, cycle along the Mekong river and visit Phnom Penh. Cambodia has more to offer than Angkor, much more.
My personal experiences are a mix of backpacking and cycling. I've joined tours whenever I felt it was important to learn more about the country. Angkor with a guide can be particularly enlightening.
Below I am offering several tours which are excellent values for traveling in Cambodia. Exotissimo Travel has many more tours in Laos, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar available but her we go with the Cambodia tours:
