Husband and I (late 50's) are planning our trip for November. We travel quite often but just Europe and the US so this year we're heading further east.
Want to see all the usual tourist sites and some of the real Cambodia, learn about the people and history.
We are not beach lovers but would like to wind down for the last few days.
Work dictates only 2 weeks so any comments & suggestions to the itinerary below would be very welcome.
Leaving from Heathrow
4 nights Siem Reap -Golden Temple Residence
3 nights Battambang - No idea for hotel yet
3 nights Phnom Penh - Pavillion
3 nights Kep - Mealea Resort
Thanks, I'm sure I'll have more questions later

we travelled from Kep to Kpot, PP to Battam boat to SR, bus to ST then north to Laos. We were then, (2 yrs ago), 57 and 54. Where to stay depends on your budget, we used this site and booking.com and then opted for 2/3 * places. (Were tight).
Wow that is amazing that you and your husband is planning a trip to Asia..i must say good choice for the trip..you will enjoy a lot and will have a very good time..your itenary has planned well..after returning back make sure to share your experiences..

The Jasmine Hotel in Battambang is a good hotel only new we were there in Nov 16. Also stay at Kampot not Kep . Kep makes a great day trip from Kampot. Cheers and safe travel. By the way we are 69 and 73.Also make sure you do the Bamboo train in Battambang.

I agree about kep. Just a thought but what about spending the last 3 days in a village if you are interested have a look at Chi Phat
This is their web page but you can also check out the pages here on travelfish
These shots by drone were taken by a friend of mine when we were there
I might be slightly biased, since I live in Kep , but I'd say there's nothing wrong with visiting Kep for a few days, especially if the purpose is to unwind instead of doing activities. Kep has plenty of great places to eat and the upper-range resorts are lovely, if one can afford them (sounds like the OP can, though).
