Description of Classic Cambodia 14 day vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
This trip can be tailor made to create a unique vacation for your individual requirements by travel experts with intimate knowledge of the destination. It is a more individual trip that will suit those who enjoy immersing themselves in new cultures and environments, with the flexibility to plan a trip at your own pace. Quality and value are the hallmark of these trips, with most services being provided on a private basis.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThroughout your trip many of your excursions are by foot, boat, or cyclo, meaning that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum, whilst still offering the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and striking history of Cambodia from a relaxing and personal perspective. You are also given a few days at leisure to discover sleepy towns by foot or bicycle at your own pace, rather than including additional touring days be car, to minimise your emissions. Whilst this example itinerary includes a domestic flight, the trip is entirely tailor-made and you have the flexibility to choose an overground route instead.
Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and reducing plastic waste. We are working together with them and the local guides to offer refillable water bottles and reduce offers of other single-use items such as wet wipes or straws on a more widespread basis. We use a number of hotels who work with the Refill not Landfill initiative.
PeopleOn the ground in Cambodia we use an excellent, local, family-owned agent who demonstrates care for the environment, preservation of their culture and commitment to the community as well as providing employment opportunities for many local people throughout the country.
Angkor Wat is one of the most important world heritage sites in Southeast Asia but sadly much of the majestic complex is in a state of disrepair and ruin. The entrance fee, which is included in the cost of your trip, goes to the very much needed conservation, restoration and upkeep of the site.
The Shinta Mani Hotel in Siem Reap is a leader in responsible tourism through its not for profit Shinta Mani Foundation. This NGO focusses on the three core areas of education, small business start-ups and health care in order to improve the lives of individuals in the local communities. Supporting hotels such as this increases the amount of money brought in by tourists that will actually stay within the local community rather than leaving Cambodia and going to international companies.
The Cambodia Landmine Museum is a Cambodian NGO, run by and for Cambodians. It exists to tell the story of landmines in Cambodia, how they have impacted the country’s past, present and will continue to impact its future. The Museum also hosts a Relief Facility for at-risk village children. The money raised by the museum allows this facility to continue.
Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS), which means “the brightness of art,” is a cultural organisation in Battambang, Cambodia, that offers young people a way out of poverty by training them to become professional artists and performers. Set up in 1994 by young returnee Cambodians from the refugee camps who learned about using art as a means of coping with trauma, PPS has played an influential role in promoting and developing Khmer culture over the years after the Khmer Rouge genocide. This Cambodian non-profit association steers underprivileged children and youth towards a better quality of life through cultural, artistic, educational and social skills. Your visit here helps them with their work.
