Join us on a holiday to Cambodia

From exploring French colonial influences in bustling Phnom Penh to soaking up the vast serenity of Angkor Wat, a holiday in Cambodia is a journey of the senses.

A land of rice paddies and chanting monks perfectly juxtaposed with glittering modern architecture and vibrant cityscapes, this Southeast Asian gem offers visitors a warm welcome. 

Drift through the exquisite waterways of Tonlé Sap, home to rare and endangered birdlife, and learn more about the lifestyles of the locals living in this extraordinary aquatic setting. Explore the colourful market town of Siem Reap, the gateway to the Lost City of Angkor Thom, and home to the Angkor National Museum. Marvel at the four giant heads and countless other faces carved into the rock of the astounding Bayon temple. Spend time with a family at a local village and learn about their lifestyle, traditions and cuisine. Visit riverside Battambang, Cambodia's 'second city', home to colonial-era buildings and quaint neighbourhoods, or perhaps embark on a scenic sunset cruise on the Mekong River.

Travel with Newmarket Holidays on our expertly tailored Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia tours and experience the world-famous landmarks and hidden treasures of this stunning part of Asia.

Cambodian riel
  • At the time of writing, to visit Cambodia you must obtain a visa before you travel. This is liable to change, so please check the latest official advice from the UK Government Foreign Office before you travel. Please note, you will need a minimum of six months’ validity in your passport.

  • Generally speaking, Cambodia is a safe country to visit. As with many other Asian countries, Cambodia does experience some petty crime. However, taking sensible precautions, such as not wearing or displaying valuables, will negate the majority of any risk with regard to petty crime

    There are an estimated 3 million active landmines in Cambodia, a devastating legacy of the Cambodian Civil War. The majority of the mines are in rural areas, so always stick to the paths and never ignore the warning signs. 

  • The official currency of Cambodia is the Cambodian Riel. However, US dollars are widely accepted in Cambodia, and often even preferred. Change of less than $10 will often be given in Cambodian Riel, with $1 worth roughly 4,000 Cambodian Riel. For the latest exchange rates, please see www.xe.com.

  • Cambodia is a very inexpensive country to visit, even by South East Asian standards.

  • Khmer is the official language of Cambodia.  However, English is widely spoken, especially in areas tourists visit. Below are several useful phrases in Khmer, with phonetic pronunciations in brackets:

    Hello – សួស្តី (suostei)

    Goodbye – លាហើយ (leahaey)

    Thank you – សូមអរគុណ (saum arkoun)

    Please – សូម (saum)

    Do you speak English? – តើអ្នកនិយាយភាសាអង់គ្លេសទេ?

    (tae anak niyeay pheasaeaangklesa te?)

  • Cambodia is famous for its idyllic, tropical coastline and ancient temples, none more so than the astounding temples at Angkor, near the town of Siem Reap. Here, great temples litter a vast area, which was once the capital of the Khmer Empire, including the famous Angkor Wat, which is featured on Cambodian banknotes, and the atmospheric Ta Prohm, which was the shooting location of the Tomb Raider film. 

    Capital city Phnom Penh is a French colonial treasure-chest on the banks of the Mekong River, and is home to some sobering reminders of the Cambodian Civil War, including the infamous former prison at Tuol Sleng, now a museum, and the Killing Fields at Choeung Ek. 

    In the south, Sihanoukville is a popular coastal destination, home to several white-sand beaches, with regular ferry services to the popular island of Koh Rong.  

  • Cambodia is warm all year round, but like most other South East Asian countries, is subject to a humid, wet monsoon season, which runs from May to October. The best time to visit Cambodia is between November and April, when days are warm and mostly dry.

  • Generally speaking, Cambodian food is similar to Thai food, although with less chilli and sugar. Rice is a staple part of every meal in Cambodia, with seafood, pork and beef also very popular. Fish amok, a creamy fish curry, is one of Cambodia’s most popular national dishes, as is kuy teav, a vermicelli noodle soup made with pork or beef and topped with beansprouts, garlic and fresh herbs, that is commonly eaten for breakfast.
