Amble to Angkor
Cambodia’s ancient Khmer temples at Angkor represent one of the most impressive and well-preserved ancient sites in the world. And even though they’ve survived for centuries, Cambodia’s political stability and the construction of the high-end Grand Hotel d’Angkor make now the best time to see them in person. This addition to our Vietnam Walking trip dedicates two full days to exploring the temples—and you’ll need them both to fully appreciate these incredible man-made wonders.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”

The Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, Siem Reap
The Grand Hotel d’Angkor is the area’s finest colonial landmark and provides the perfect base for our temple visits. At the end of each day’s explorations, your elegant guestroom awaits you—not to mention the historic Elephant Bar, fine restaurants, a beautiful pool and spa. The Grand is tastefully appointed with Art Deco-style furnishings and Khmer art objects. View hotel website »
