Location & Directions
Cambodia & Thailand
First to Cambodia and Hotel de la Paix which is ideally situated in downtown Siem Reap within walking distance of the shops and restaurants, as well as being only 8kms from the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. Then to Thailand where you will stay at Pimalai Resort & Spa on the south west coast of the island of Koh Lanta Yai in the province of Krabi, and close to Lanta Marine National Park.
When to go
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.
