We start and end this journey in one of our favorite SE Asian cities, Bangkok. But make no mistake, the main course of this adventure is the visually stunning Cambodia. Rich in culture and history and decorated with incredible temples and ruins, Cambodia truly is one of the most breathtaking countries in Southeast Asia. After wetting our palettes in Bangkok, we travel to Cambodia’s bustling capital city of Phnom Penh, then on to Siem Reap and the incredible Angkor Wat National Park, before making our round trip back to Bangkok.
Visit the golden palaces, temples and shrines of Bangkok, shop one of the city’s many charming floating markets or high fashion malls, or take in the rowdy and raucous revelry of Khao San Road. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of a modern-day Phnom Pehn. Cruise the riverside restaurants, visit the Royal Palace, or take in some of the country’s incredibly sobering modern history. Stand in awe of the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat National Park, home to some of the most incredible temples and ruins in all of the world let alone Southeast Asia. Temples and history aren’t the only things in store for you here though, as Cambodia is a country loaded with opportunities for creating the adventure of a lifetime. Remember to charge your phone, camera, or whatever you take photos with, because you’ll have a hard time putting it down on the 10 Day Kingdom Of Wonder Adventure.

You arrive in Bangkok late the first evening. The group meets for welcome drinks and a short information session at our guesthouse. Day 2 is when the action starts as we embark on our first included activity, a day trip to former capital of Ayutthaya where you’ll see some of the most impressive Buddhist temples in all of Thailand.
From Bangkok you will fly into the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. We are picked up at the airport by a fleet of private tuk-tuks that take us for a ride through the wild and crazy Phnom Penh traffic to our accommodations. Our first night in town we have our official Far Out welcome dinner, and party it up at our amazing guesthouse. Day 4 we embark on our first group activity in Cambodia, a sobering day trip to Tuol Sleng Prison and the Choeung Ek Killing Fields. The last day in town is yours for exploring. You can visit the National Museum, the Royal Palace, take a Khmer cooking class, visit the Russian market and much more in this exciting capital city.
From Phnom Penh we will be taking a private minibus north to Seam Reap. Our first day is yours to get acquainted, but in the evening the group usually gets together and heads to the Angkor Night Market and Pub Street for some fun. Day 7 is our group activity, an absolutely incredible day exploring the ancient temples of Angkor Wat National Park. Days 8 & 9 are free time and the activities available to you are pretty awesome. Hike Phnom Kulen mountain, visiting ancient temples and fantastic waterfalls. Take a trip to one of the floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake and stick around for an evening “cultural” booze cruise. Hop on an ATV and cruise the countryside, or catch the sunset in a hot air balloon. Siem Reap is a backpacker’s dreamland, teeming with must do activities.
The morning of Day 10 we board a plane and head back to Bangkok, Thailand for the last night of your Far Out Adventure. Our hosts in Bangkok have a special send off celebration planned for us. Say goodbye to the amazing new friends you’ve made over the past 10 days, and prepare yourself for your onward journey home. Or perhaps like many of our guests you’ll be having so much fun you’ll want to join us for another 10 days on the next part of our circuit, in Laos!
