Duration:

8 days / 7 nights

4 stars, moderate to a small amount of challenge, riding on mostly paved with some unpaved flat national road and some side trips on smaller roads to hidden destinations.

Tour Summary:

Day 1:

A taste of the high life, this exciting trip covers 7 provinces in a relaxed manner and takes in the very best attractions along the way. Temples and religious sites, the buzz of the capital, the sea breeze, mountain strongholds, sandy beaches and coconuts in the shade. All with comfort, good company and great food to back it up - this one has something for everyone, a trip to discover the emerging heart of Cambodia.

Your tour leader and guide will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to base camp. You will be briefed on the tour, safety instructions and procedures for the tour. Depart Siem Reap to Kampong Thom, provincial capital and half waypoint to Phnom Penh. Following lunch, check out the nearby temples of Sambor Prei Kup, a seventh century complex of temples surrounded by forest. Back to Kampong Thom for a stroll around this bustling market town which was built on the Stung Sen river before enjoying dinner.

Day 2:

Following breakfast, visit Phnom Santuk, a holy mountain just outside of town. Over 800 steps to the top for fantastic views and one of the biggest reclinging Buddahs. This is a busy road to Phnom Penh but there is a great opportunity to see the countyside. Arrive in good time to take in an afternoon city tour or visit some markets. Sunset at the riverfront, followed by dinner & tour of the local hot spots.

Day 3:

They call it “The Kings own country” and for good reason. The road to Kep, Kampot is picture perfect and is said to one of the most beautiful provinces in the country. A short jaunt brings us beside this old seaside coastal resort and French colonial town. Famous for it seafood, the group has an opportunity to visit Kbal Chay waterfall and the surrounding spots before settling in for the night.

Day 4:

Still in Kampot province, neighbored by Vietnam, we climb Bokor National Park. A scenic drive through the forested mountain brings us to the summit. Here we find an array of burnt out buildings.. a casino, a catholic church, scenes of past fierce battles. On a good day there is a view of the coast of both Vietnam and Cambodia. Tour of the mountain. Overnight with the local rangers in their base on the mountain.

Day 5:

Once down, travel east along the coast road to Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s main seaside resort. An earlier start will give us plenty of time to explore numerous beaches and this friendly town.

 

Day 6:

A days touring around Sihanoukville takes us to Ream National Park, a small fishing village and a few local runs and haunts. Good sand practice time! Additional beach time for those that would like it and some interesting NGO projects to visit.

Day 7:

 

Morning drive to Phnom Penh and afternoon free to see some of the attractions. Last chance to see the bright lights of Phnom Penh.

Day 8:

Home drive to Siem Reap. Visit with local people in their homes to understand the life of farmers and local people. Back in time for sunset and celebrations. Reconvene at Hidden Cambodia’s base for dinner to celebrate the journey.
