“The locations of the tour are great , the organization of the tour was not so great . The guide was very friendly, good English, but always rushing and not clearly communicated on time lines during the tour . Lunch was very late in the day . A good lunch , but you definitely need a snack . Also please remember a bathing suit you can swim in the falls. Most of our tour did not swim as they did not know .the bus was good but they left in running while you waited at spots and the exhaust was not good .
The body of the tour was wonderful just a little fine tuning needed”

Despite terrible periods in Cambodia’s history, the country today is a safe place to visit. Stick to the tourist areas as much as possible. When travelling to remote areas, stick to the marked paths to avoid any undiscovered landmines.
November to March is the most popular time to visit Cambodia when the weather is not-too-hot and not-too-wet. July to August is shoulder season, and a great time to visit for lush scenery and fewer crowds - if you don’t mind wet weather.
While Cambodia’s currency is the Riel, it is far more common for tourists to pay in US dollars. In fact, most prices in shops and restaurants will be quoted in US dollars. However, most hotels and restaurants also accept credit cards.
