We will get on our car to the quiet town of Takeo before taking a short boat trip to Angkor Borei Town, located just a few kilometer navigation from the Vietnam border. There is a small museum which displays several reproductions of sculptures from the nearby ruins and few artifacts dating as far back as the 4th century. After this, we continue our boat trip to visit a pre-Angkorian style temple of Phnom Da and a nearby temple of Asram Maharosei. The steepy path over some big rocks makes Asram Maharosei different from other temples in Cambodia, definitely a piece of unusual memory for your Cambodia tours. You then continue southwards following the picturesque drive to Kampot. The southern coast of Cambodia, edging the border with Vietnam, once served as a glamorous seaside resort for the French in the early 1900s. Check in upon arrival and free exploration afterwards.

The Bokor Hill Station was originally developed as a playground for the colonial and Khmer elite in the early 20th century, it’s cooler climate and lush scenery provided a welcome relief from the lowland heat. However, as with much of Cambodia, Bokor’s fortunes changed with the rise of the Khmer Rouge, the area saw heavy fighting and today many of the buildings are pock-marked and shattered from heavy machine gun and rocket fire. The ghostly remains have a unique ambiance and can be especially eerie when the clouds descend and the fog drifts in and out. On the way back to Kampot you will call in to a durian plantation (the smelly spiky fruit this area is renown for).

      We then travel by roads along the southern coast towards Sihanouk Ville, which has long been a place of relaxation for Cambodians. Overnight in Sihanouk Ville.

It is known for the 216 giant mysterious faces carve on the 54 towers, each posing a differing mysterious smile, keeping watch of each compass point.

      In the afternoon, we continue to visit Taprohm and Angkor Wat. Unlike most of the temples of Angkor, Ta Prohm has been largely left to the clutches of the living jungle. It shows the dynamic interaction between nature and man-made art. Whereas, the legendary Angkor Wat is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking. It is the world largest religious monument and a masterpiece that showcases the pinnacle of Khmer Art. Its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled; its artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal. It is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Angkor Wat is the centerpiece of any visit to the temples of Angkor.

    I found UME Travel in TripAdvisor based on reviews and i was never disappointed. Our travel advisor tailor made a perfect tour for us. We found her suggestions are extremely useful, and were able to change bits and discuss various options with great ease despite the time difference. During our Cambodia trip we visited Angkor Wat, walked to Saracen Bay with beautiful view, saw fishermen.

    We contacted UME Travel with our dates and list of places of interest. We did research other options but found that this tour helped us see everywhere we wanted to go. Our travel advisor was Diana, tour guide was Sunsern, a full time tour guide(I may have mis-spell). The meals throughout the trip were superb and Sunsern knew the local restaurants and even cooked meals for us, teaching my wife cooking secrets. The Tonle Sap Lake boat trip was also a taste of being a local ! We did get to see stuff that we have not seen before!

    Myself and 4 friends visited Cambodia for 10 days in March. We wanted to make the most out of our short time but didn’t know how to plan this. We are senior Americans with extensive travel experience, but my wife has a leg condition which requires her to keep her legs flat in a vehicle. Diana arranged Bangkok Airways for us which is comfortable and large space and have wheelchair. They were very accommodating and good communication to help us plan our perfect trip. Overall, it was a great tour and we enjoyed it !

    My husband and I took several weekend stopover trip to southeast Asia and wanted to visit Thailand. We contacted Diana and she was very quick on responding my email and very quickly the tour was set. We went to the Royal Palace, Genocide Museum, Tonle Sap Lake (must to see), amboo Railway. She also showed us some nice place for dinner on the lake (do not remember the name). She was helpful with all information regarding different places with the good prices during all our stay.

    This trip was a nice mixture of culture, history, and having a great time. The tours and excursions were varied and it certainly have you a balanced experience of Cambodia. I don't see how we could have made any more use of the time without becoming rushed. Alvaro was extremely competent and knowledgeable. He managed to keep us all happy no matter how "particular" a guest was. He was always full of life with a ready smile. His attention to detail and clear explanations helped tremendously. Great group of mixed ages helped too!

    I really enjoyed the Cambodian Adventure Tour. The itinerary was perfect as it gave us a taste of the whole country and didn't just stick to the main draws of Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. What made the tour extra special though, was our guide Alvaro. His knowledge of the country and its history was fantastic and his enthusiasm for every day was infectious and invigorating.

    We had a great introduction to Cambodia with Alvaro Calderon on the Cambodian Adventure tour. He is the most energetic guide ever and went the extra mile to make it fun for all of us, from the 20 -50 yr olds. We learned a lot about the history and explored the night life too! Thank-you so much!!

    This is an absolute must!!! The best way to see Cambodia in a short time period, with flexibility and free time! From the beaches, to the circus, supporting NGOS and late nights this allows you to do and see it all! This could not have been as Epic if it were not for our lovely guide Alvaro. He is a true gem! Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and always ready to get amongst it. Thanks Al and Busabout for an amazing experience, such a highlight...book it now!!

    The Cambodia Adventure tour was so much fun, especially because of our saucy little Spaniard Alvarro! He made everyone feel instantly welcome, was so knowledgable about the country and all the best local little spots, and definitely knows how to organise an awesome night for the group! This trip and talking to Al has definitely already got me planning the next one :)

    Al is the best tour guide you will ever have in your life EVER!! the cambodian tour was such a beautiful and eye opening experience and it was without a doubt all because of al!. he made us all have such an amazing time ( if we wanted to or not) he just has such an infectious personality and charisma that can't be taught. Whist also teaching us everything we needed to know and more about the local people and the history of the country. The time we had was unforgettable and i will definitely cherish it and Al's input for a long time to come. :)
