Trip Overview
Overview

From Khmer kingdoms to French rule, the various influences on Cambodian culture have yielded arts, music, textiles, cuisine, and dance as unmissable as the ruins of Angkor. Cambodia is both gloriously beautiful and culturally rich, so we will alternate activities between guided tours of Angkor's most striking and sacred sites and days spent reveling in Cambodia's living culture. We will marvel at giant stone buddhas, observe young monks studying, and enjoy traditional Khmer cuisine. We will learn about the Cambodian textile and fashion industries at a silk farm and fashion studio and experience the Cambodian Circus. The grand finale of this trip will be seeing Angkor Wat, at sunrise — one of the most breathtaking sites a traveler can behold. 

Highlights
  • Watch the sunrise light up Angkor Wat
  • Taste the balance of bold flavor and refined technique that makes Cambodian cuisine
  • Explore Ta Prohm temple, made famous in the Tomb Raider films
  • Reveal the magic of silk textiles, from worm to loom
  • Visit the lacquer painter, Lim Muy Theam, in his studio
  • Visit couture designer Eric Raisina's workshop
  • Learn some moves from a Cambodian circus troupe
  • Spot rare birds in the Cambodian jungle on a river cruise
  • Overnight in a boutique hotel nestled in the French Quarter and the Royal Gardens
