The best time to visit Cambodia is from November to February as the weather is cooler and there is a breeze.
Generally, the country is safe to visit, but you should avoid the remote areas of Phnom Penh at night.
The official currency of Cambodia is the Cambodian reil, and the American dollar is the countryâ€™s unofficial currency.
Given the year-round warm temperatures, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are good options. Shorts are acceptable, but we suggest covering up when visiting temples and religious sites.
The tap water in Cambodia is claimed to be safe, but a lot of chlorine is added so it does not taste good. It is recommended to only drink the bottled water that is sold everywhere.
Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience
Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.
Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
I purchased my rid tour as part of a group coupon. Is obituary hesitant but my tour was great. The staff at Encounters were professional and helpful. I had a lot of questions but no one made me feel like a pest. Good experience.
I always wanted to go to Morocco and I finally got to go last September. I'm glad I chose this tour group. They were professional and attentive. Good times!

Cambodia, officially the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a sovereign state in the southern portion of the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest.
The official religion is Theravada Buddhism, which is practised by approximately 95% of the population. The minority groups in the country include Vietnamese, Chams, Chinese and 30 hill tribes. The capital and largest city is Phnom Penh, the economic, political and cultural centre of Cambodia. Cambodia has one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, and agriculture remains the dominant economic sector.
The landscape of Cambodia is characterised by a low-lying central plain that is encircled by uplands and low mountains. The highest peak of Cambodia can be found in the area of Phnom Aural. Cambodia's climate is largely affected by monsoons, like the rest of Southeast Asia.
Cambodia has two main seasons: the rainy season, which runs from May to October and the dry season, which lasts from November to April. The biodiversity in Cambodia is mainly based on its seasonal tropical forests, home to 180 recorded tree species and 212 mammal species.
Khmer is the national language of Cambodia. French, the former language of government in Indochina is still spoken by many older Cambodians and is used in some schools. English is taught in many universities in the country and street signs are now bilingual in Khmer and English.
