Between visiting family in Phuket and in Beijing, we stopped for sightseeing at Siem Reap. Journeys Within handled everything for us—the tours, the lodging, food (breakfast/lunch), local transport, and guides. It was all terrific. Better described as a combination of a boutique hotel (for its attractive rooms, attentive service, meals that combine Cambodia specialties with standard fare) and a really interesting B & B for the combined friendliness and competency of the Cambodian staff and the British/American couple who seem truly concerned about making your stay the way you want it to be. If you take the time to talk with Andrea & Brandon you will find out about the amazing way they have created a happy and interesting place for tourists but also about their projects, including a school, well building, and microloans.
You can order lunch brought to your cool room after a hot morning of touring—try the beautifully presented and delicious Coconut Chicken Curry with a dessert of Banana/Chocolate Crepes and for breakfast try a Khmer breakfast of Noodle soup. A special note about our guide: Louah (Leap Lam)--his English is great, his knowledge base was extensive, sensitive to what we wanted, always polite and helpful—and an interesting fellow—worth getting to know—I travel a lot and I’d say that Leap is in my top five of guides in ten years of traveling---and certainly a standout for Cambodia.
