The south of Cambodia offers beautiful coastline, isolated islands, lush national parks, and even a few lesser-seen Angkorian temples. Find yourself discovering a whole new side of Cambodia on a 12-day tour that takes you deep into the wild of the Cardomom Mountains to a floating tent lodge, to pepper plantations in search of the perfect Kampot pepper, through idyllic rural countryside, and onto secluded beaches washed by the Gulf of Thailand’s sparkling waters.
Arrive in Siem Reap, the gateway to the temples of Angkor, where you’ll start your off-the-beaten-path Cambodia tour with a fascinating boat trip on the Tonlé Sap, Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake. Take the opportunity to explore the magnificent Angkorian temples by bicycle and see Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple, Ta Prohm and Srah Srang at your own pace. Follow it up with a sunset gondola ride along the moat of Angkor Thom, and then it’s a foodie’s dream come true: a guided tour of the all best Khmer eateries and local hangouts in Siem Reap!
From Siem Reap, head to Phnom Penh to see all the higlights of this deeply historic, cosmopolitan capital city. You’ll have the chance to get a deeper understanding of Cambodia’s history at the Killing Fields, as well as a chance to drink in riverside life on a Mekong dinner cruise.
In Kep, a laid-back coastal town, you’ll visit the little-seen Angkorian temple Phnom Chisor, enjoy a delicious meal of Kep’s famous crab, and stroll past the colonial facades that reveal the city’s history as an exclusive seaside resort.
On the way to tropical Sihanoukville, you’ll stop at a Kampot pepper farm to learn all about this world-famous pepper. Then while away the hours on Sihanouville’s crescent beaches, with options to explore Ream National Park or to go island-hopping. When you continue to Koh Kong, you’ll spend two nights in a floating tent villa on a beautiful river at the foot of the Cardomom Mountains. Enjoy the rich wildlife here, journey to a waterfall and find serenity in nature before we transfer you back to Phnom Penh.
