Phnom Penh is excellent. As is Siem Reap. Therefore… this trip is excellent. Hang in Phnom Penh, hoover up some street food, burl around in a cyclo, see some of the most powerful historic sites in the world… Then head to Siem Reap to see the Angkor complex, which is pretty much the coolest thing EVER.
- In the space of less than a week you'll get right to the heart of two of Cambodia's most popular cities, and one of the world's greatest religious sites.
- There's a sure fire way to a traveller's heart and that's through their stomach - so fall in love with the Cambodian family who'll offer up home cooked local delicacies in their own house.
- With a whole day to see the sites of Angkor, you’ll soon know your Bayons from Baphouns, and the difference between an Elephant and Leper King Terrace. Here's how to escape the crowds: https://www.geckosadventures.com/tales/escape-the-crowds-at-angkor-wat/
- There are tonnes of optional activities to choose from (Flight of the Gibbon zip-line anyone?), so you can make your Cambodian experience as full-on or laid-back as you want.
