Cambodia: Beyond the Ordinary 14 days

Designed to venture off the well-travelled tourist path, our Beyond The Ordinary itineraries are ideal for those wanting to discover a side to the country that most visitors haven't even heard about. We’ve thrown in a few key sites for good measure, as let’s face it they're ‘key’ for a reason, but this isn’t a fly and flop holiday for the masses: it’s about exploring and experiencing real life.

Cambodia's North-East is the outstanding, lesser-visited region of this inspiring country. Combine an essential visit to the magical Angkor temples and the country's thrilling capital, Phnom Penh, with a journey off the beaten track. Explore remote jungle-clad temples and picturesque natural scenery; meet local minority villagers and spend a day learning about the region's elephants. In 14 days you'll have a more thorough appreciation of this fascinating country.

Not enough R&R time? If you would prefer a more relaxed travel programme speak to your Selective Asia consultant about extending your stay. We can tailor this holiday to meet your exact needs - your holiday, your way.

Highlights

  • Be one of the first to visit Cambodia’s ‘Last Frontiers’ in Ratanakiri.
  • Learn about the conservation and history of Asian elephants as you walk with them in Mondulkiri.
  • Trek through minority farms and villages in the footprints of wild animals, before relaxing at Bou Sraa Waterfalls.

We only provide privately guided holidays - meaning that you will not be expected to share guides or transport for the duration of your visit. You can also start on any day you choose.

Please click on the hotel category buttons below to view hotel details. These are recommended properties only - we have many alternative options for you to choose from if you would prefer. You can mix hotel categories throughout your holiday.

Travelling alone? Prices available on request.
  • Having travelled all that way to Ratanakiri you may wish to consider travelling onwards...just two hours further north and you'll be in Laos.
  • Many visitors to Cambodia ignore its southern coast in favour of Thailand and Vietnam's better know beaches. However, Cambodia has several excellent beaches close to Sihanoukville - not only are they just three hours drive from Phnom Penh, you'll also avoid the large crowds that descend on other better known Asian beaches during peak seasons.
At Selective Asia we specialise in creating unique, tailor-made experiences. The holiday itineraries provided on this website are intended to help you visualise what is achievable in your destinations of choice, over a given period of time and at an intended budget.
Whilst many clients are happy with one of our recommended itineraries in the current form (and at the price quoted), there are those that wish to personalise their holiday in some way, whether it be a change of hotel, an additional destination or even start from scratch. This is when our tailor-made specialists come into their own; with many years of experience both living and working in the region they are ideally equipped to advise on alternatives and to facilitate any necessary changes.
Please note: During high season periods (such as Christmas and New Year) hotels often levy a surcharge and these are not included in the above prices. Your consultant will be happy to advise you of these.

It is important to us that we travel as responsibly as possible throughout Asia and that we are giving something back to the regions and the people that make these journeys so special.
