Important NotesThings you need to know about this tour
It’s best to arrive on the actual start date of our tours as there are no activities on the first day, so you’ll have plenty of time to recover from your flight and meet everyone in your group. Our trips do not include international flights to and from Cambodia.
Most nationalities are able to get a visa on arrival in Cambodia. The visa on arrival is for a maximum of 30 days and costs approx. $35USD and will be payable on arrival in cash. Some nationalities may need to make advance arrangements.
Travel insurance is compulsory for our Cambodia tour. Get a quote here.
We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. And because it’s often quite hot in our destinations dragging around a huge suitcase is not cool !
In Cambodia most of our accommodation is twin or triple share, so we will put you in a room with someone of the same gender.
