"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

Introducing Cambodia

Centuries of heritage, unbelievable natural beauty, and friendly locals make this welcoming destination a premier stop for all travel enthusiasts.

When is the best time to visit?
There’s no bad time of year to visit Cambodia, but the main tourist season happens when temperatures are coolest from November through February. To avoid some of the crowds, visit towards the end of the country’s dry season, which extends all the way into May. 

Where to go in Cambodia?
For an iconic Cambodian experience, tour the temples of the ancient city of Angkor. Additionally, there are many undiscovered off-the-beaten-path gems, like the untouched island beaches of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, the up and coming bustling city of Phnom Penh, and the 216 stone faces carved at Angkor Thom. 

How many days do I need?
Budget at least 6 days in Cambodia to explore the temples and also get to know the vibrant community.

Explore trips by duration: 5 days · 7 days · 10 days · 12 days · 13 days · 14 days · 15 days

How Many Days to Spend in Cambodia

Cambodia is a small country with a wealth of cultural attractions and landscapes, from glorious beaches to thick jungle-clad mountains and lush rivers. However, it's best not to pack too much into your visit because the infrastructure makes getting around quite slow. If you opt for a slow-travel experience that favors quality over quantity, it doesn't matter whether you have five days or two weeks in Cambodia, as you'll certainly have a rich and rewarding stay.

Over 14 days, you'll explore Angkor's temples, boat among Tonlé Sap Lake's floating villages, cycle the countryside, meet landmine-sniffing rats, and enjoy glamping in Cardamom Mountains National Park. Plus, there's time to relax by the beaches of Kep before rounding out your adventure in Phnom Penh.

Hotel was very clean and accommodating. Staff were fantastic and the food was incredible. Lives up to its rating of a 5 star resort. Make sure to bring money for tips/experiences from the mainland as the entire island does not have an ATM. Apart from the hotel Koh Rong offers beautiful natural world. Incredible island to explore by scooter. There is a feeling the area is rapidly changing and being developed. I imagine it will be a very different place in 5 - 10 years.

Cambodia was incredible. I took this trip with my long time friend and had pretty high expectations. With the help of KimKim and Steve, (our appointed local guide) this trip completely blew them out of the water.

Kahna our guide for the first week was absolutely incredible, going above and beyond to explain the nuances of culture and history to us while still keeping us excited and entertained. We were equipped with the information and understanding to complete the trip knowing how to navigate the country. The accommodations and transportation were great and the organization of the entire trip was completely flawless and spot on.

We can’t express how grateful we are. Certain trips give you something money can’t buy, a reset of sorts, a shift in perspective that alters how you look at life itself. Without the help of KimKim, Steve, and Kahna, we couldn’t have had that experience.
