Travelling in a responsible and cost-effective way is something we can all get behind. Whether you’re exploring the mountains of Patagonia or snorkelling off the Sri Lankan coast, travelling for less always makes your trip a little sweeter. However, it can be tough to reconcile good value with incredible experience - and it’s a shame to sacrifice on either! With this in mind, we asked our local experts for their top tips on getting value for money on the road. Their on the ground knowledge, and local recommendations, can take your itinerary up to the next level…

Overrun? Maybe, Maybe Not...
Cambodia
Wonders of the world
Everybody wants to know the secret places, locations about which the majority of camera-toting tourists remain totally ignorant, and where you can feel yourself to be on a totally private journey of discovery. What's quite amusing sometimes is that even the most famous places in the world - we're looking at you Angkor Wat - can be enjoyed without any fellow tourists at all. We're not kidding! Below is the first in a series that we will post on this subject - places that you thought would be really busy, but which are not. Maybe one day we will do an opposite list - places you thought were great but are over-run? OK, maybe not...

Kratie - Away From The Crowds In Cambodia
Cambodia
Off the beaten track
Wildlife
The temples of Angkor, the Killing Fields, Phnom Penh city...this is what most people think of when they think of visiting Cambodia. Rare wildlife, peaceful riverside vistas, mountain biking through rural villages… these are just some of the things you can experience if you venture just slightly off the beaten track. And Kratie, about 5 hours in the 'other' direction from Phnom Penh, offers all of this and more.

Cambodia's "Green Season"
Cambodia
Cultural
Off the beaten track
Wonders of the world
Cambodia's peak season is from November to March - there's little rain, and temperatures are a pleasant 25 degrees or so. During the so called 'green season' - roughly from April to the end of August - temperatures start to rise and there's a short, intense burst of rainfall daily.

Cambodia's "Waterworld"
Cambodia
Boat journeys
Cultural
Off the beaten track
Cambodia's Tonlé Sap is both a lake and a river system with an unusual feature - its flow reverses twice a year. In the dry season (November to May), the river drains into the Mekong at Phnom Penh. In the wet, silt in the Mekong delta causes the river to back up and flood a huge area of Cambodia, forming the Tonlé Sap lake. People living near the lake thus have to cope with water levels that go from nothing to nine metres. They do so by building their homes on stilts. In the dry season, walking around one of these villages you'll see homes built high above the ground, with people clambering up and down huge ladders. In the wet season these same homes seem to float on the lake, with people zipping around by boat.
