Trip Notes

Laos Visa & Cambodia Visa
Can be organized either in advance or on arrival. Check with your embassy or consulate, and allow about three weeks for processing. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the traveller’s responsibility.

Culture Shock
When visiting Cambodia and Laos you’ll see both good and bad. Poverty is widespread, but the friendly locals make up for it. Since English speakers can be hard to find, arm yourself with a phrase book and a sense of humour!


Angkor Wat Cambodia gay tour


Local LGBT Scene
Cambodia and Laos aren’t gay hotspots, but’s there’s an impressive amount of nightlife in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Luang Prabang doesn’t have much of a scene, but gay travellers are welcome.

December and January are the best months to travel to this region. Rain is rare and the humidity less oppressive. Travel with a light sweater and jacket, but keep summer essentials handy: midday temperatures can eclipse 30°C/85°F.


Angkor temples gay tour

Flights are purchased for the entire group 90 days prior to departure, or when the trip is full. While we endeavor to book the best flight/s possible, we may have limited options at the time of purchase. If you are booking your trip less than 90 days to departure, there is a chance you be on a different flight than the rest of the group, and you will be notified in such an instance.

To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. While we typically dine together so everybody can taste everything, feel free to explore restaurants on your own…your guide will always have solid recommendations.

LAOS: The local currency is the Laotian Kip (LAK). Credit cards are accepted at most hotels and upscale shops, but restaurants and bars prefer cash.
CAMBODIA: The local currency is the Cambodian Riel, however USD is widely accepted. We recommend carrying local currency or USD bills for small purchases, however credit cards are accepted at most upscale restaurants and hotels.
NOTE: We recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold. This should be in addition to any spending money.

If you are happy with services throughout your trip, a tip is recommended. Tipping details will be provided in your final trip documentation, however we recommend budgeting approximately $150 USD.

What to bring
Most Out Adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.
