* * *For a unique introduction to Cambodian food and culture, do consider our Combo Tour.
Avoid consecutive days of Temple Tours. They'll wear you out. Moreover, during your Temple Tours, consider also breakfast and/or lunch in Angkor Thom. Food Stall #38, in particular. Tell them Dani sent you, and get a discount! Servings are large, so don't over-order. And take note: your driver gets a free meal.
Everyone's a winner at #38!
* * *A word about the US Dollar:
It's common currency here. Very convenient... but only if the bills are pristine. So, don't bring bills that are old, torn, worn-out, wrinkled, written-on, stained, etc. They will most certainly be rejected, and you will be stuck with them--unless you care to accept a major cut by a local money-changer, to have them exchanged.
Likewise, accept only pristine bills from restaurants, shops, hotels, etc. People here tend to offload their bad bills on unsuspecting tourists... YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
so much more than BEES!

Our Tours are NOT Temple Tours
Cambodia’s temples are special; a few are even spectacular. This link, the Interactive Guide to Angkor, should assist you--particularly if you're not hiring a guide to show you around (something we'd suggest, as you can thus take your time, enjoy the temples at your own pace, click photos and shoot videos at will, see just what you want to see, and even enjoy a meal at Food Stall #38, our favourite eatery in Angkor Thom. Their expansive menu includes vegan and vegetarian dishes served in a peaceful setting, surrounded by a number of less-frequented temples that you might enjoy checking out.
* * * * *
After a day or two or three, the temples all tend to look the same...
so, when you’ve had your fill of bricks, sandstone, laterite, tourists, and their selfie sticks; and, are templed out, but still want to discover other facets of Cambodia in Siem Reap Province, join us on one or more of our tours for an unforgettable touch-taste-feel-smell-and-see adventure in this amazing Kingdom of Wonder.
Back-to-back temple days will wear you out--particularly with children in tow--so break up your temple tours with one of ours. Then, rather than proclaim: "I visited Cambodia and saw Angkor Wat!", you can proudly and honestly claim:
"I booked a Bees Unlimited Tour and EXPERIENCED Cambodia."
The perfect intro to Cambodian life!
Judging from the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, this one-of-a-kind, kid-friendly, culinary and cultural outing is by far our most popular tour.
Cambodia comes alive for you here!
For a preview of what to expect on this and our other tours, check out the "On Tour with Bees Unlimited" playlist on YouTube, and the other playlists there, as well, since most of the clips were shot while on tour.
Our Combo Tour will be of interest to foodophiles, as we sample local fare throughout the day. Although our focus is on vegetarian options, and we do tank up at a local market, FOOD is but one aspect of this tour; the other is CULTURE.
A Morning Food Tour... and more!
To feel the pulse of Cambodia, a market is the place to be; and in NW Cambodia that means Phsar Leu, Siem Reap's largest wet market.
This market has it all!
The proof is in the pudding, so just check out some of the 200+ videos under "Cambodian Market Scenes" on YouTube, and see for yourself.
This is our shortest, most intense, and cheapest tour, but the sensory experience and photographic memories you take from here may last a lifetime. What's more, during our Market Tour there's plenty for the adventurous connoisseur in you to taste, try, and enjoy, as you dodge water puddles, fish on the footpaths, and countless motorbikes, while you take in unenviable smells, and admire the controlled chaos of the best place to take pictures at, in town.
This tour will test your tolerance for unfamiliar breakfast foods!
NOTE: Don't let lactose or gluten intolerance/sensitivity, nut allergies, etc., hold you back. With so much to choose from here, there's something for everyone; so, by all means, do come on an empty stomach.
If you're a foodie, then this tour is most definitely for you!
Our half-day Siem Reap Tour focuses primarily on interesting and unusual occupations and activities in and around the city, far from Pub Street, Old Market, and the urban crowds.
Our Angkor Nature Tour is a trek that starts behind Angkor Wat and culminates with a delicious lunch at Food Stall #38 in the NE quadrant of Angkor Thom. We get off the tourist track in search of unique, interesting, and unusual flora and fauna, along well-worn trails that criss-cross the Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom forests and lead us through the East Gate, a.k.a. the Gate of the Dead.
A scenic, 1-hour tuk tuk ride past rice paddies, palm trees, and pagodas... Our Rafter Beekeeping Tour takes you some 35 km from Siem Reap, to Tbeng Commune, the one remaining community in NW Cambodia where the tradition of Rafter Beekeeping is still practiced, and can sometimes be observed during honey-harvesting season, early in the year.
Our Floating Village Tour--one with a distinctly aquatic flavour--takes you away from most of the tourists, to Kompong Kleang, some 50 km from Siem Reap, and beside the Tonle Sap, SE Asia's largest body of freshwater.
A zoological/botanical /butterfly garden on the outskirts of Siem Reap, in Kantrok, a village only a short 7 km west of town.
This spacious oasis of natural beauty, complete with fish ponds, waterfalls, amphibians, birds, reptiles, butterflies galore, and even stingless bees, is sure to satisfy nature lovers, both young and old.
Butterfly Paradise generates income and employment for its orphanage and Cambodia's Adventist schools. It boasts an air-conditioned cinema that features videos highlighting the complexity of design in nature.
An a/c vegan restaurant, with a lovely panoramic view of the garden, also graces the premises; and their must-visit souvenir shop is full of homemade collectables and items related mostly to nature.
Keen to support a good cause in Cambodia? If so, then this one most definitely deserves your attention!
If you've got a few free days on your hands, we would highly recommend a visit to our friends Ben and Sharyn in nearby Preah Vihear Province and their incredible BeTreed Adventures, only a few hours drive from Siem Reap.
This wilderness sanctuary (that's right! WILDERNESS... not some temple teaming with tourists!!) where Green Peafowl and Red Junglefowl forage freely on the premises; where you can sleep in a Tree House; and, where you can ride not one, but two 300m ziplines--is home to butterflies, birds, reptiles, mammals, and bees... A complete Eco Tour Experience! And the food is AMAZING!
Browse their website, then make a reservation... If you're anywhere near Siem Reap, have time on your hands, and love wildlife and wilderness living, GET ON OUT THERE!!
