Cambodia & Laos

Holidays to Cambodia and Laos give you the opportunity to explore two of Asia's most beautiful and mysterious countries. Cruise along the Mekong River and explore paddy fields, markets, jungles and temples. In Cambodia's capital Phnom Penh, you'll see traces of French colonialism, alongside colourful markets and bustling streets.

Some of the most magnificent temples in the world are here, including the breathtaking Angkor Wat, in Siem Reap. Elsewhere in Cambodia, flop down on gorgeous beaches edged by palm trees. Laos is a tiny, landlocked country that's still relatively untouched by tourism.

The perfect addition to holidays in Cambodia, it's a wonderful land of caves, Buddhist temples and elephants. Both Cambodia and Laos are well-known for their friendly people, warm welcome and delicious cuisine. Discover two truly stunning countries on holidays to Cambodia and Laos.

Best time to go

The best time to take Cambodia and Laos holidays is between November and February. It's hot all year round in both countries, but these are the driest months.

Things to do

Both Cambodia and Laos are home to amazing scenery and sightseeing. In Cambodia, capital Phnom Penh is a vibrant riverside city, where the remnants of French colonialism can still be seen. Visit beautiful Siem Reap, the gateway to one of the Seven Wonders of the World: Angkor Wat. This enormous Hindu temple is shrouded in the roots of the jungle trees that grow around it. Head further afield and travel through gorgeous countryside and steamy forests. When you're ready for some downtime, the beaches of Sihanoukville are all powdery sands and palm trees. In Laos, traditional capital Vientiane is home to ornate temples and the Pha That Luang stupa, the national symbol. In Luang Prabang and its surroundings, discover colourful crafts, beautiful buildings and cascading waterfalls. We're happy to advise on the wonderful attractions in this part of the world; just ask us about our tailor-made holidays to Laos and Cambodia.

Food and drink

The cuisine in Cambodia and Laos is a tasty mix of rice and noodle dishes, with exotic spices and seafood.

In the evening

Nightlife in Phnom Penh is lively, with a good mix of bars, pubs and clubs. In Sihanoukville, there are seafront bars and beach parties. Although Laos isn't known for its nightlife, there are plenty of bars in the capital – as well as a handful of clubs. Along the Mekong Rover, you'll find an array of riverside bars with outdoor terraces. And Vang Vieng, a favourite with backpackers, has a lively after dark scene.

Health and entry requirements

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct travel insurance and vaccinations and / or special medication for your destination. Please consult your GP for advice at least one month ahead of travel. It is essential that you meet the visa and passport requirements for your chosen destination.
