Cambodia is perhaps best known for having one of the greatest and one of the saddest tourism sights in Asia. The Angkor Wat temple complex needs a few days to fully appreciate, while the Killing Fields are a dark and macabre reminder of humanity’s unerring ability to do one another harm under malignant circumstances. Phnom Penh itself is not without its interest and these three major sights can easily be covered in a shorter Cambodia tour. But there is so much more to experience in Cambodia for travellers and a longer tour will help to unlock pockets of the country that you might not automatically consider when putting together your own itinerary.

Tours of Cambodia from Phnom Penh vary wildly in price, duration, itinerary and experience, which makes choosing the right one for you a tricky proposition. Quality and reliability are also somewhat inconsistent, which is why we’ve put together this list of the best five Cambodia tours, taking into account all of the above considerations, as well as the reviews of previous travellers. While there are shorter tours in here, longer, more comprehensive tours are also included for a fuller Cambodia experience.
