1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The most exciting part was that every day was different. From learning about the impact the Khmer Rouge had on everyone, exploring the temples around Angkor , traveling by boat through floating villages to staying with a family in a farming community.....

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for a few days where you will be traveling all day. At the genocide museum make some time to talk to one of the survivors and buy one of their books to discover more about what life was like under the Khmer Rouge.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our guide took great care to use small family businesses, local restaurants and to encourage us to travel responsibly. Examples include not buying from children and instead taking to them and encouraging them to study hard at school, reducing the use of plastics by having refillable water available and actively saying no to plastic when shopping.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was great to have enough time to see everywhere properly, by staying two or three nights in most places, and not just rushing through like so many tours do. We had plenty of time to explore Angkor Wat and the other temples, with a ticket that let us go back later individually if we wanted.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The island trip and beach stay at the end was lovely, but Sihanoukville town itself is a rubbish dump meets building site, so don't expeect anything of that. The traveling times between different places also generally took longer than scheduled.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, and there are many restaurants, craft centers and massage rooms you can seek out that support disabled and blind people or give opportunities to youngsters.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I enjoyed it - I wanted to experience Cambodia itself and not just as a tag-on to Vietnam or Thailand, and this is one of very few tours that offers that,
