Cambodia is more than simply temples: Let me show you what lies beyond Angkor.

This tour explores contemporary Cambodia and her culture, visiting a sprawling local market, a buddhist pagoda with monks going about their daily rituals, the vast countryside, and one of the cities on stilts on the Tonlé Sap lake. The sights we visit are a dream for street photographers or anyone looking to learn to better tell stories with their images. Highly recommended for experienced photographers looking for something a little different, but beginner-friendly, too.

You can find the full itinerary below, but for now here’s a sneak peak of the kind of scenes we’ll see in our adventure…

Full Itinerary

9:00am-6:30pm – The day begins with a trip to Psa Leuh, a sprawling local market away from the heavily-touristed Old Market; if something can be bought in Cambodia, you’ll find it at Psa Leuh, from fruit and vegetables to dresses and jewellery made on-site, and much more. We’ll spend the morning photographing this incredible vibrant place and its smiling inhabitants. We follow the market with a trip to an old Buddhist pagoda in Siem Reap Ciry where we’ll take in the shaded, leafy grounds, wander among ancient stupas, and have the chance to observe the resident monks going about their daily rituals. The tour convenes at around noon to escape the hottest, least photogenic part of the day. You’ll be taken back to your hotel to relax and take lunch; if you like, I can recommend one of the many delicious, socially-responsible restaurants in town if the hotel doesn’t take your fancy.

After lunch we’ll drive out through the vast Cambodian countryside surrounding the city on our way to the Tonlé Sap lake. We’ll swap the car for a boat and motor through the incredible Kampong Phluk, dubbed “The City on Stilts.” This floating village on the lake presents some of the finest opportunities to photograph a vastly different way of life, from men tending to their fishing boats in the warm glow of the early evening sun, to barefooted children playing football in the street, you’ll be spoiled for choice in terms of opportunities to photograph the local people. We’ll take in the sunset on the way back to town; I’ll have you back to your hotel for around 6:30pm.

Pricing

From USD $237. The standard tour price includes guiding and tuition for up to two guests inclusive of transportation by boat and air-conditioned vehicle. Extra guests (beyond the two included places) can be added to the group at the rate of $50 per person, per day. Where your group size is larger than three, please add on a further $10 for a larger vehicle.

Inclusions/Exclusions

All of my tours include transport for the day, pick-up and drop-off at your hotel, as well as my guiding and tuition services. Meals, drinks and tips for the driver are not included.

About the Tuition

The course is suitable for beginner, intermediate, and professional photographers alike. My tuition can be as full or fleeting as you need – many clients, particularly those just getting to grips with their DSLRs, love the photography tuition that runs alongside the tour and leave with whole host of new skills; professionals I’ve guided often just want to be ferried to the best sites at the best times. It really is up to you; I’ll tailor my guidance to suit you. Want to learn something specific? Just ask.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a group tour? Absolutely not. I don’t particularly find that group tours are conducive to delivering a quality photographic education, and so I don’t offer them as part of my tour packages. You’ll only have to share me with our driver!

Can I bring a partner/friend? Yes. The prices advertised include tuition for up to two people, so you can bring along one friend at absolutely no extra cost. If you’re planning on bringing more than one, please add $50/person per day to the tour fee. Please bear in mind that five people don’t fit in a tuk tuk, and so you’ll need to travel by private air-conditioned van at a slightly higher rate. Please see Pricing above.

What should I bring? You’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes, suitable clothing for visiting religious sites, sun protection, and your camera. And don’t forget to bring your park entrance pass – let me know if you need any assistance in organising a pass.
