Welcome to The Kingdom of Wonder – Cambodia!
Cambodia is a country that most travelers visit after spending most of their holiday in one of the neighboring countries. And they don’t know what they missed!! Of course the famous Angkorian temples of Siem Reap are the highlight, but to limit a stay in Cambodia to Angkor Wat is anyone’s personal loss.
Phnom Penh with its rough charm, Koh Rong Samloem with its endless white sand beaches, or the Cardamom Mountains with their pristine nature are well worth a visit. But the most satisfying experience one can have is the interaction with the people. In spite of what happened during the dark years of the Khmer Rouge these people are the kindest people you’ll meet. They really want visitors to experience their country. There are so many great opportunities to interact with the local people and learn about their traditions, values and lifestyle. It is very inspiring to hear firsthand how the Khmer people have taken all the trauma of the past generation and turned it into something really positive. Cambodian people are passionate about their history and the widespread influence of the ancient Khmer Empire. They’re proud of the mark their culture has left throughout Southeast Asia.
Personally, I recommend visiting the countryside outside of the main tourist areas. Ancient temple complexes such as Banteay Chhmar, the destination for our award winning luxury tented camp, or the home-stay in Sambor Prei Kuk, are truly amazing experiences where Cambodian communities are directly benefitting from tourists exploring their culture.
Travelers can have the trip of a lifetime if they open their mind and heart to this beautiful country and its people. After you spend some time traveling around Cambodia learning about the many attractions this country has to offer, then it is time to visit the ancient and awe inspiring temples of Angkor Wat.
Meet the team
In Cambodia, Khiri has a young, enthusiastic, highly-educated 16 member team working from offices in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Christopher Gramsch, our German Country Manager, is a travel enthusiast who landed in Cambodia after working in Laos’ tourism sector. Our Khmer staff hail from Phnom Penh, Kampong Cham, Siem Reap, Banteay Meanchey, and Kampot, and some have traveled internationally as well.
We pride ourselves on our high degree of destination, product, and supplier knowledge. We know the best restaurants, hotels, and transport companies in Cambodia by heart, and many of our team members possess exceptional training.
Linda Oum, our Sustainability Ambassador & Educational Travel Manager, traveled to Japan to participate in a one-month ecotourism training with the support of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency).
Linda used the sustainable ecotourism and community development knowledge she gained in Japan to found Isanborei homestay in Sambor Prei Kuk, which she coordinated via Khiri Reach (the non-profit arm of Khiri Travel). Linda’s homestay project is now one of the main tourist attractions in Kampong Thom and an example of Khiri values. Not only poverty has been reduced in the Kampong Thom commune as a result of income earned from homestay guests, but the project has also given our clients a chance to see and experience authentic local life in Cambodia.
Khiri’s Cambodia team cultivates a grassroots, family atmosphere, and no task is too big or too small—our team will do everything we can to ensure that our clients enjoy the journey of a lifetime when visiting Cambodia!
Thank you so much guys – not possible without your hard work, super organisation skills and wonderful guides
Angkor Wat, constructed in the early 12th Century, is the largest religious structure in the world. The temple is so massive that its walls and moat appear in photos taken by space satellite. But Angkor Wat is one temple among a mindboggling complex of medieval structures—the stone remnants of the Khmer Empire that once ruled over Southeast Asia—scattered throughout modern Cambodia.
