Travel Information

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for all participants of our Exploration Tours.

A travel insurance policy to cover illness and injury, cancellation and curtailment of your journey, theft, loss of personal items like baggage and tickets, etc. is a necessity.

The insurance policy should also cover ambulance rides, emergency medical evacuation and repatriation of a body.

Some insurance policies exclude "dangerous" activities which can include motorcycling, scuba diving, rock climbing, or any extreme adventure etc. If you are planning to do any of these "dangerous" activities while traveling, check the small print to see if you are covered.

Make sure that family or friends at home know the address and telephone number of your insurance company and your insurance policy number.

Find out in advance if your insurance policy will make payments to the providers or reimburse you later for overseas health expenses. If you have to make a claim, you should keep all receipts (in English if possible) for medicines and medical treatment.

If you have anything stolen and you want to make an insurance claim you must obtain an official statement from the police.

For more information and to purchase travel insurance contacts a travel agent of travel insurer. Online information and purchase.

Health Advice

Drink lots of water. Never drink tap water purified, bottled water is available everywhere.

Use an insect repellent against mosquitoes. It is the only way to be sure of protection against mosquito borne diseases. Since Cambodia has a hot and humid tropical climate, casual and light-weight clothing is best. Clothing made from natural fibers is the best option. A jacket might be needed on cool winter evenings or in hotels and restaurants using excessive air-conditioning. A hat and high-factor sun block is advisable as protection against the hot sun when sightseeing.

When visiting temples or pagodas, including those of Angkor Wat, shorts and T-shirts (shoulder covered) are acceptable. Shoes are generally removed at the entrance to pagodas. For visits to the Silver Pagoda, which is within the Royal Palace grounds, visitors are asked to dress more formally. Gentlemen are required to wear long trousers and ladies should wear long trousers or long skirts.

Standard film, (such as Kodak, FUJI or Konica 100, ), slide and digital camera memory are widely available. Photos are inexpensive to process in the country. Any specialized photo equipment should be brought with you. Photography in airports, railway stations and near any military installations is forbidden and discretion should be used when photographing people, particularly monks.

Health Requirements

Although no vaccinations are officially required for entry to Cambodia, they are highly encouraged. Visitors are advised to check with their doctor or a travel immunization clinic regarding protection against malaria, typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A and B. Any essential medications should be brought with you as there is no guarantee they will be available in Cambodia.

What to bring

A. Before you travel, Adventurous Asia gives you more scenes of understanding once you just search for information on its pages. Because many countries do not have waste collection services, try to pack as little as possible. When buying toiletries,  use only biodegradable products.  Asian countries have modest dress codes. Local woman and men cover a great part of their body. Revealing too much "flesh" is considered very rude and offensive in many cultures. And prevent you from real contact with local people. Leave high cut shorts, sleeveless tops and revealing swimming suits at home. Instead pack loose clothes that cover your arms and legs. This way you will be more readily accepted by local people, and also be protected against the sun and insects. Modest dress will also minimize the risk of sexual harassment; local men won't assume that you are "available". Leave expensive jewelry, watches and unimportant  items at home. You do not need them while traveling and there is no need to show off your wealth to local people. We are rich in the west, but there is no need to remind the local people of our wealth.

 B. What to Bring and How Long to Stay in Siem Reap Angkor

Passes are sold at the Check point Counter, on the way to the Angkor Archaeological Park.  Free photos taken are provided at the main entrance. Tickets bought are safely kept during your visit to Angkor, and carefully- strictly checked at every monument entrance gate.

Visiting hours are 5:00AM - 6:00PM. Angkor Wat closes at 5h.30PM, Banteay Srey closes at 5:00PM and Kbal Spean at 3:00PM. For further visit, Beng Mealea, Koh Ker and Phnom Kulen are required to have the new passes.

Weather

Due to the weather condition in Cambodia, hot and dry and rain sometime in the rainy season, wear light, airy, covering clothing to protect yourself from the sun and mosquitoes. The sun can be intense so bring a hat, sunglasses and perhaps sunscreen. Consider buying a traditional Khmer scarf (krama) to keep the sun off your neck. Carry a raincoat during the wet season, though you will probably only need it in the afternoon. You should have mosquito repellent for sunrise and sunset hours. Wear practical shoes for climbing narrow steps and walking on uneven surfaces. For serious temple explorers, a flashlight, notebook and compass can come in handy. Books, refreshments, trinkets, postcards and film are available from small vendors throughout the temple complex.
