Do I need a guide to visit the temples?

We believe you'll get much more from your stay if you hire the services of a guide, especially if you don't have much time. A good guide will give you more information on the temples and the history of Cambodia than a guidebook, and give you a much clearer insight into Cambodian life, culture, customs, politics etc. The best way to know a country is through the locals, so specialist local guides can be invaluable in making your visit to the temples much more interesting, entertaining and educational. Here's why.

Travelers on a budget can get by with a copy of a guidebook and a bicycle or a tuk-tuk - we observe that this kind of travel is not especially rewarding, for either the local economy or the traveller
