What You'll Get
This 12 day/11 night tour works its way from hyper-modern Singapore to charmingly laid-back Cambodia – with all these contrasts, you'll find the soul of Southeast Asia somewhere in between!
Spend twelve days working your way through some of Southeast Asia's most radically different cities, from Singapore's cutting-edge modernity to Siem Reap's laid-back charm set amidst ancient temples:
Singapore: one of Southeast Asia's most forward-looking cities offers a number of surprises – from Southeast Asia's first zoo for nocturnal animals, the Singapore Night Safari; to the ultra-modern Gardens by the Bay housing thousands of plants from ecosystems around the world (the scenic SuperTrees are a must-see); to its city streets combining colonial British architecture with the most cutting-edge building designs in the world
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia's capital offers a whirlwind view of history and culture with tours through its historic city center (combining century-old architecture and iconic new buildings like the Petronas Twin Towers); and visits to the countryside around the metropolis
Siem Reap: once the capital of the mighty Angkor empire, today it's a launchpad to the Tonle Sap lake and its waterborne communities; cultural experiences like the Rosana Broadway and the Angkor Silk Farm, and of course the majestic temples left standing around the Angkor temple complex
Phnom Penh: Cambodia's present capital features a mix of ancient and modern attractions, including (but not limited to) the Royal Palace, which you can explore at your leisure.
