Introducing: Arron and THE CAMBODIA EXPERIENCE

Hey everyone I’m Arron!

I’m here to tell you all about the brand new Cambodia Experience that is happening right now! But before I do, let me tell you a little bit about myself...

I have lived in the sunny city of Leicester for most of my life. It’s a great place with a lot going on, but it’s very rarely going to suppress the adventurer in you, if you know what I mean?

I stumbled across Real Gap in 2010 whilst browsing for trips to USA online, like so many of us, I needed something to get excited about, I mean, come on there’s a big wide world out there, right?

I booked a 6 week trip and threw caution to the wind, and from that moment on I was bitten by the travelling bug. Being a part of an organised trip for the first time in my life, allowed me to just relax, and enjoy the adventure without the stress! For me, the hardest part was getting on the flight alone!

Once I had arrived back home I found myself constantly looking for my next trip, where next? How long for this time? Since Real Gap had given me such a great first experience, I was intrigued by their Thailand Experience & Vietnam Experience, which in turn made me fall in love with South East Asia.

A long story short, and being in the right place at the right time, here I am now, heading up Real Gap’s epically NEW Cambodia Experience for 2015

Believe me when I say I don’t throw the term ‘Epic’ around lightly, but this trip is EPIC! I’m a tough guy to please. I was part of the team that put this trip together, with the best of my knowledge of what people just like you and I want from an adventure of a lifetime. We’re now 4 groups in, and the great reviews are coming back thick and fast!

For me, Cambodia has it all. The culture, the history, and of course the nightlife! It’s a country that will amaze you with its beauty, a place where the locals will humble you with their kindness and as cliché as it sounds it will open your eyes and change you inside.
Every location has something that will ‘wow’ you. If ancient temples over 1000 year old don’t amaze you, then I’m sure the white sands and crystal waters will. Cambodia has it all, where else in the world can you be visiting the Tomb Raider movie set amongst ancient ruins and 12 hours later being a part of the BIGGEST pub crawl in Asia, oh and I will make that happen... and that’s just a taster.

There are 101 reasons why Siem Reap is ranked the #2 destination in the world on TripAdvisor, I bet you didn’t know that?

My top 3 highlights of the experience are as follows:

·         Volunteering – without out doubt, what you will remember the most from your time in Cambodia is the volunteering in Siem Reap. The memories will stay with you the longest because simply put, you WILL change lives.

·         Angkor Wat – The biggest and best temple complex in the world... can you think of a better place to watch the sunset?

·         Beach time – Cambodia is not so famous for its beaches as its bigger brother Thailand, but let me assure you, there are some hidden gems that are equally as beautiful, but less just a little less famous. The sunsets are epic and the drinks are cheap.


To describe this trip in 3 words is easy it’s ‘The Total Package’ but if you want me to be break it down, ‘Real – Inspiring – Legendary’

If you want a REAL Experience of South East Asia, If you want temples, great food, to meet amazing people, top nightlife and to change lives for the better then choose Cambodia for your next adventure with Real Gap.

Check out our new video HERE to get a sneaky peaky at what all the fuss is about, and hopefully I’ll be seeing you soon!
