The Kingdom of Cambodia in Southeast Asia offers an enthralling travel experience from start to finish.

If you’re planning a visit to the region, this episode of Tour the World with Geckos Adventures — hosted by The Big Bus tour and travel guide’s editor Adam Ford — is packed with Cambodia travel ideas and inspiration, including culture, dining, history, shopping and relaxation must-sees and dos.

Whether you plan to travel with a tour group or independently, in this episode you’ll get information about visiting Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor, Phnom Penh, Kirirom National Park and the coastal retreat of Sihanoukville.

We start this adventure in Siem Reap — the gateway to the temples of Angkor — the heart and soul of Cambodia. Our visit to the temple of Ta Prohm is one of the highlights. Here you can clearly see how the Angkor site was hidden by the jungle for so many centuries. Giant tree roots encircle whole sections of the temple. We also have the opportunity to climb to the top of the central tower at Angkor Wat for spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Departing Siem Reap, the tour heads south towards Phnom Penh — Cambodia’s enigmatic capital city. There’s time for a brief stop along the way to taste a hairy local specialty — fried tarantulas!

Located where the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the Tonle Sap rivers meet, Phnom Penh is home to more than a million people. We spend a day exploring the city and learning about the infamous Killing Fields. It’s something no-one on the tour will ever forget.

Leaving the city behind, we get to experience a more traditional way of life during a home-stay with a local family on the edge of the Kirirom National Park. The tour ends in sunny Sihanoukville.
