Cambodia: A Jewel in Southeast Asia

February 1st – 8th, 2026

“The most beautiful thing in Cambodia isn’t the country- it’s the Cambodian people.”
Rithy Panh, Cambodian filmmaker

Traditional Aspara Dancers

Travel with us to Siem Reap, an extraordinary destination in the magical Kingdom of Cambodia. Located in the northwest of Cambodia, Siem Reap is known for its rich history, magnificent temples and awe-inspiring natural beauty. This is a city that has somehow managed to preserve its rich heritage while embracing modernity. 

Famous for the ancient and awe-inspiring temple complex of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap is now also emerging as the capital of Khmer cuisine and culture. Appreciated for its warm hospitality, this city is a hidden gem that has been transformed into a sanctuary for relaxation, as well as adventure. 

Navutu Resort 

During this week of discovery, our home base will be Navutu Dreams Resort, Siem Reap’s only eco-luxe resort & wellness retreat. Set amidst palm trees and rice paddy fields, this wellness resort features well-appointed rooms with private bathrooms, three large swimming pools, 2 yoga studios, a tropical spa with an array of spa treatments, a restaurant serving organic farm-to- table cuisine, and a wellness center for optional holistic healing seasons.

This unique yoga retreat will take you on a journey of discovery, both personal and cultural. As usual, daily yoga and meditation classes will be offered. While classes are optional, they are designed to help keep your body more comfortable and to enable you to feel more grounded and appreciative while exploring this exotic country, so different from your own.

Angkor Wat

Led by our experienced local guide, Sarak, we will visit not only the sprawling temple complex of Angkor Wat but other historic sites like Banteay Srey, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Prohm and Preah Ang Thom pagoda with its giant Reclining Buddha.

We’ll spend a day exploring Phnom Kulen Mountain, considered Cambodia’s most sacred mountain. Locals gather at this holy site daily to pray, leave offerings, stroll through the national park or picnic next to one of the beautiful waterfalls.

 In the foothills of Kulen Mountain, lies the Bos Thom Community Forest, 1100 acres of protected forest inhabited by the former elephants of Angkor. For 22 years, these elephants gave rides to visitors in the temples of the world heritage site. Today, they roam free in their natural habitat and are living testimony of a changing world. The mission of the elephant sanctuary is to provide their resident elephants with a happy and comfortable retirement but also to offer a fun, educational approach to elephant conservation and contribute as much as possible to preserving the remaining elephants of Cambodia. Our visit to the elephant sanctuary will help further this important mission.

 We will take a half-day tour of Kampong Phluk fishing village and enjoy a boat cruise on the great Tonle Sap Lake. In the dry season, the Kampong Phluk houses can be seen sitting on top of high stilts. When the lake floods, the houses sit just on top of the water. You’ll marvel at this unique way of life surrounded by the beauty of the mangrove forests.

The Apsara Theatre, the oldest theater in Siem Reap, has helped contribute to the revival of Khmer traditional dances and the preservation of Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage. One evening, we will enjoy a traditional Cambodian meal while watching Apsara dancers perform classical and village dances.

Of course, a Jeni’s Global Yoga Trips retreat would not be complete without sampling the most loved local foods and drinks. Cambodian dishes such as fish soups, stews and coconut-based curries and steamed curries have been compared to better-known Central Thai cuisine, however, Cambodian dishes contain less chili and sugar and more aromatic spices such as cardamom, star anise, cloves and nutmeg. 

The Old Market, also known as Psar Chas, is a vibrant outdoor marketplace where you can get street food, fresh fruit and colorful handicrafts. Nom Krok- coconut pancakes, Num Pang- Cambodian Style Sandwich, Kranlan- Bamboo Sticky rice, Nom Ka Chai- Cambodian Chive Cakes and Steamed Snails top the list of must-try favorites. 

Siem Reap is a captivating destination that will stay with you long after you return home. With its ancient temples, vibrant markets, natural wonders, warm hospitality, unforgettable sunsets, this city is a haven for those seeking beauty, serenity and a deeper connection with history and nature. 

Cambodian locals are known for creating an atmosphere where even strangers feel truly welcomed. You’ll be greeted with friendly smiles and greetings of “john rip sur” (hello) as they bring their hands together at their hearts and bow their heads towards you.
