Itinerary & Notes
Sua s'dei! Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm tonight. Check with hotel reception for more information and have your insurance details and next of kin information ready for collection. If you have free time in the afternoon, perhaps stroll the streets of Phnom Penh and explore the city, taking in the interesting French colonial architecture. The National Museum, with its collection of classic Khmer craftsmanship, is well worth a visit. Consider a visit to Wat Phnom, a peaceful temple situated on a hill for which the city is named. According to legend, a 14th-century woman named Penh found sacred Buddhist objects in the nearby river and placed them here on the small hill. A great way to spend your first evening after the meeting is to stroll along the famous Sisowath Quay and enjoy a coffee or cocktail at one of the many cafes while observing the busy river traffic.

This was a well balanced itinerary with a good selection of interesting options at each location. The local cycling tour of Battambang was particularly interesting and fun. Whilst Angkor Wat was certainly the highlight, Sambor Prei Kuk is a hidden gem and much quieter. The visit to the fishing village on the Tonle Sap was truly one of the most awesome events; whilst we have visited the villages on Inle lake in Myanmar, we had not seen anything like this and we would love to return when the lake and rivers have more water.
       
Excellent trip doing what it says on the tin showing the best of Cambodia. Well-balanced and interesting 2 weeks. Tour leader did an excellent job with showing us her country. She was conscientious and extremely enthusiastic, she's a credit to Imaginative Traveller team.
