Australia’s leading Asia travel specialist, Travel Indochina, has completed the first departure of its completely redesigned ‘Cambodia Revealed’ Small Group Journey, amid strong passenger reviews.
With a new itinerary unlike any other Cambodia tour in the market, the 11-day Cambodia Revealed journey incorporates exotic parts of Cambodia not often visited by tourists. New destinations include visiting the colonial port town of Kampot in the south, and stretches of uncrowded beaches at Kep and Sihanoukville, as well as a trip through the jungle in darkness to unveil Angkor Wat in dawn’s first light.
John Black, Travel Indochina’s Cambodia Country Manager, says that it is important to the team at Travel Indochina that travellers are shown the ‘real Asia’.
“Cambodia is so much more than just Angkor Wat and the Killing Fields, and on this journey our travellers experience parts of Cambodia that visitors to the Kingdom very rarely see,” says John.
“We are passionate about the country, delving well beneath the surface and leaving our travellers with a true understanding of life and history in Cambodia. Our completely revised Cambodia itinerary includes new areas which have been previously closed to tourists, such as the trip up Bokor Mountain, or lesser-known charms such as Kep-sur-Mer (or Kep).”
Some of the many highlights included:
- The trip up Bokor Mountain, the road to which was officially closed in Oct 2008 but which has now been reopened;
- The South Coast (to the National Park and the coastal town of Kep), including free time for sailing and kayaking;
- A home-stay in Takeo where travellers hear the family’s personal story;
- Phnom Penh’s history and the Killing Fields
- Touring Angkor temples
Travel Indochina is offering fourteen ‘Cambodia Revealed’ departures in 2012. Prices start from $1,665 per person twin share, and include 10 nights’ hotel accommodation, breakfast daily, all sightseeing as specified including entrance fees, tour arrival and departure transfers.
