This trip is designed for those aged 18-39. This trip requires you to show evidence that you have been fulled vaccinated against covid-19 (final dose administered a minimum of 14 days prior to the start of the trip).
You will need a visa to enter Cambodia. You can obtain a visa online before travelling or on arrival at the airport (where you will need to pay a fee in USD). You should ensure that your passport will still be in date for six months after your return. All visa information is subject to change and you should consult the nearest High Commission or Embassy for the most up to date information.
When’s The Best Time To Visit Cambodia?
It’s always a good time to go to Cambodia as the country is warm all year round. There’s a slightly higher chance of rain from May to October, but this is usually a short downpour in the afternoon, followed by more sunshine! The rest of the year is mostly dry. November to February is peak tourist season with temperatures that are mild enough to explore the country in comfort, but warm enough to enjoy the country’s fabulous beaches.
How Much Money Will I Need?
All your activities, accommodation, in-country transport and some meals are included with your Cambodia Experience, so you’ll just need money for other meals and snacks, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We suggest you bring between £250 and £400, depending on your personal spending habits.
How Do I Access Cash While I’m Away?
There are ATMs available throughout Cambodia, particularly in the cities. We suggest you bring Visa or Master Card debit, credit or a travel money card. Some places accept credit card, but not all of them.
Is There Wi-fi?
Most of the accommodations we will be staying at have free Wi-Fi available. The network quality will probably be lower than you’re used to but you should still be able to do the basics.
What Luggage Should I Take?
We would always suggest a rucksack rather than a suitcase as they’re easier to travel with. We’ll be moving round quite a lot and dragging a heavy suitcase in hot weather isn’t fun! Pack as light as you can as well – 10-20kg of stuff should be plenty.
Due to Covid-19, many of our partners and suppliers across the globe are putting in place new procedures and policies regarding health and safety in response to the outbreak. These new measures will adapt and change as the state of travel evolves, and the policies and procedures will vary depending on each trip. Some changes that you may experience on our trips are:
Updated safety & hygiene procedures
Health and safety measures will be adapted by our partners and suppliers, dependent on local laws and restrictions.
Different transport & accommodation
You may find yourself on transport or in accommodation that would not typically be used, such as hostels that are more secluded, or on more private transport. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.
Most trips include a meeting on arrival with the guide or local team to discuss the trip, and this is an opportunity for you to ask any questions. You should arrive in time to attend these briefings.
Emergency support 24/7
We have a UK based 24/7 emergency phone line if you have a genuine urgent matter that you need attending.
Knowledgeable & Trained Staff
We can help answer any questions or concerns you may have before you depart. Whilst travelling the guide or local team on our trips are there to help, and to ensure the smooth running of our trips.
Should you require medical assistance whilst travelling, the local team or guide will be able to help you get to a point of care. Medical facilities and standards can vary across the glove, so you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place.
Varying group sizes
To begin with, many trips will run with amended group sizes, so you may find smaller groups than would be typical. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.
Whilst there may be changes on our trips, it is vital that you make travelling safer for yourself, your travel companions, the local staff and guides, and the people of the country you are visiting. You should follow all local laws and restrictions, and follow the guidance of the local team. In addition, you can help make travel safer by bringing and using your own face coverings/masks and hand sanitiser, social distance where appropriate, wash your hands frequently, and cover your face when coughing or sneezing.
