Begin your holiday in Siem Reap, home to the fascinating temple complex of Angkor. There is so much to see from the infamous Angkor Wat to the eerie faces of Bayon and ‘Tomb Raider’ temple of Ta Prohm. We can organise a private guide to make the most out of your stay and lots of exciting experiences can be arranged for all ages including a helicopter over the temples at sunset, elephant treks and hot-air balloon rides. Heritage Suites is a gorgeous boutique hotel with a stunning pool and tropical gardens.
Then fly to Thailand’s beautiful west coast for some time to relax on Koh Lanta, one of the last unspoilt Thai islands. The Pimalai is located on a pristine white beach with calm turquoise waters and it really is paradise. Enjoy the excellent dining on offer from fine dining cuisine to informal seafood BBQs on the beach and make some time for a relaxing treatment in the jungle spa. There are also fantastic activities on offer including excellent diving and snorkelling close by, water sports, Thai cooking classes and even squid fishing.
This itinerary is perfect for those looking for a fabulous combination of culture and beach, with plenty of time to relax and soak it all up. This is a suggested itinerary and can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

When to travel
November to April is the best time to visit Cambodia and the west coast of Thailand with dry, sunny days that are ideal for exploring the temples and making the most of the stunning beach. An exciting time to visit Thailand is during Songkran from 13-15 April when the whole country turns into a big water fight. If you would like to travel from May to October we would recommend the east coast of Thailand as an alternative for the beach as the weather will be a lot drier on that side.
