Easia Travel, created in 2003, have extensive experience of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Offering tailor-made tours, individual tours, group tours and adventure tours, there is something for everyone and plenty of amazing experiences to choose from.
One of the most authentic and unspoiled destinations in Southeast Asia, Cambodia attracts adventurous travellers with remarkable ancient temples, unique cultural experiences and picturesque rural landscapes. Nestled along the tropical waters of the Gulf of Thailand and sharing boarders with Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, Cambodia has a lot to offer intrepid visitors. Travelling by tuk-tuk along the chaotic streets of French-flavoured Phnom Penh is a must, and Cambodia also promises idyllic beaches, usually less crowded than those of its neighbouring countries.
TC Beverley didn't feel having her little boy should stop her travel dreams - I always wanted to see Angkor Wat and having a family shouldn’t mean we can't travel, we combined Cambodia with a trip around southern Vietnam. We stayed in nice hotels with pools which meant we could combine days sightseeing with late afternoons cooling off in the pool. We used remoks (the local version of a tuk tuk), saw the floating villages, swam in the rain and enjoyed the adventure – of course it is harder than travelling just the two of you, and a lot less relaxing, but really worthwhile.
Train in Cambodia
Travelling by train in Cambodia is now available for the first time ever. Train travel through Cambodia offers an interesting, local and original way to travel down to the south of Cambodia where peaceful beaches, islands and colonial towns await, such as Sihanoukvile, Koh Rong Island, Kep and Kampot.
This relaxed and enjoyable journey begins in the suburbs of the capital before emerging into the rice fields and small villages of the countryside. You can enjoy a picnic box on this 7.5 hour journey with snacks and drinks as you gaze out over the breathtaking views the Cambodian countryside has to offer.

Take a private boat to the small island of Koh Tonsay where you can relax and unwind in a tranquil atmosphere.

TC Sandra recently visited Cambodia:- All the temples were different to each other. The most impressive to me was Angkor Wat, which we viewed at sunrise, and was one of those magical moments I will never forget.
