Kingdom of Wonder, Angkor Wat and Beyond – Hosted Tour

  • 26 January – 5 February 2019
  • 11 DAYS – 5 ROUNDS OF GOLF
  • Guaranteed Departure
  • Only limited seats available

Welcome to heaven on earth. Angkor is the earthly representation of Mt Meru, the Mt Olympus of the Hindu faith and the abode of ancient gods. The temples are the perfect fusion of creative ambition and spiritual devotion. The Cambodian ‘god-kings’ of old each strove to better their ancestors in size, scale and symmetry, culminating in the world’s largest religious building, Angkor Wat.

Cambodia’s sleepy towns and cities are a delight, with their faded colonial architecture and old-fashioned charm, while in the countryside a host of memorable landscapes await, from the mighty Mekong River and great Tonle Sap lake to the remote forested highlands of Rattanakiri, Mondulkiri and the Cardamom Mountains.

Our carefully crafted Cambodia Escorted Tour will give you an insight into the country’s rich history and experiences. While you are enjoying your golf with us, you will be witnessing Cambodia’s local experiences led by our local expert.

Come and join us on this golf holiday of a lifetime!
