5 Days in Cambodia, a Great Cambodia Itinerary

A visit to Cambodia could span weeks, yet for many a five-day trip is enough to experience the richness of Angkor Wat and the bustle of Art Deco-era Phnom Penh. 

There are so many exciting things to see in Cambodia, and this five-day itinerary will help you make the most of your trip.

The Khmer Rouge murdered millions of people in the mid-20th century, yet it is an important part of Cambodia’s history and for that reason, it is included in this 5-day Cambodia itinerary.

Siem Reap

On day one of your Cambodia itinerary, begin with sunrise at Angkor Wat. Ticket sales open at 4:30 am. I don’t suggest actually going into the site for sunrise, as it will be very busy. 


Siem Reap

Today is the day to visit the main Angkor Wat temple. Go whenever you like, though you might want to wait until the sunrise tourists have moved on to other temples.


Siem Reap to Phnom Penh 

This morning, visit Tonle Sap Lake, Southeast Asia's largest inland lake, home to Vietnamese communities who have lived and worked here for decades.


Phnom Penh

Wat Phnom is the largest temple in the city, a temple that began as a shrine to Buddha and was raised to its higher status in the 15th century. 


Phnom Penh

Today is likely going to be an emotional day, as it’s time to visit the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng, two of the most important sites in the Khmer Rouge history.
