We will enjoy a cruise for view sunset on the Mekong and Tonle Sap River (1 hour). Situated at the “Four Arms” where the Mekong meets the Tonle Sap River before splitting into two branches, Phnom Penh offers the ideal location to discover the mighty Mekong.

En route, there is the chance to pause at Skuon, where it is possible to sample the local delicacy of deep fried tarantula and then take a local lunch in Kompong Cham. We then continue east towards the small junction town of Snuol, our gateway to the wilds of Mondulkiri. The first half of the journey from Snuol is flat, passing through patches of lush forest and areas of cultivation and plantations. There is lush jungle hugging the road and locals claim to see tigers on this stretch at night. Nearing Sen Monorom, the provincial capital, the scenery changes again, jungle giving way to clusters of pine trees and rolling grasslands. The scenery is unique for Cambodia and dotted with traditional Pnong villages, the main minority group in Mondulkiri. Check in hotel and overnight stay in Mondulkiri.
 
Day 4 Elephant Riding (breakfast + lunch)
After breakfast, we start the journey of trekking and riding on the back of the elephant this wild region to admire its many waterfalls. We cross the jungle covered hills to meet the Phnong a minority ethnic population. The walking is about 1 hour to see the Phnong village deeper so that we can appreciate their traditions.

We take a ferry to Koh Trong Island, which is a small island in the middle of the Mekong just opposite Kratie town. Overnight stay in Koh Trong.
 
Day 6 Koh Trong – Kompong Thom (breakfast + lunch)
Begin your journey north by cycling around the island from the local community for our easy and peaceful 9km ride. You will pass many traditional Khmer houses built on stilts. Keep an eye open for traditional rooftop decorations. The numbers on the top of the roof indicate the year the house was built. The narrow roads are perfectly designed for cycling with plenty of shade while simultaneously allowing you to pass close to people’s homes without intruding too much on their privacy. This allows you a more in-depth look into the lives of the local people of Koh Trong. Although some villagers are shy, plenty of children and even adults will offer friendly smiles and “hellos” welcoming tourists to their island home.
Farewell Koh Trong for Kompong Thom via Kompong Cham by road. We stop at the old Wat Rokakandal temple, originally built in the late 18th / early 19th century. Hand-woven wicker crafts are sold in the restored Vihear.

During dry season, from January till July you can walk between the stilts on which the houses are built, rising up to 10 meters in the air. In wet season, when the lake is at peak level, the water rises within one or two meters of the building floors. A local family will take you by boat on a tour and discover the splendor of these houses before continuing to Siem Reap. Overnight stay in Siem Reap.
 
Day 8 Sunrise & Taprohm & Banteay Srei (breakfast + lunch)
Breakfast at the hotel. Today you rise early to beat the crowds at the photogenic of Ta Prohm “Tomb Raider” fame. Ta Prohm has been abandoned to the elements, a reminder that while empires rise and fall, the riotous power of nature marches on, oblivious to the dramas of human history. Left as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhout in 1860, the tentacle-like tree roots here are slowly strangling the surviving stones, man first conquering nature to create, nature later conquering man to destroy. We visit Ta Prohm early to avoid the masses of crowds and provide a unique visit in this incredible temple.
We head further out through rural countryside to the small but beautiful temple of Banteay Srei. This temple is largely built of pink sandstone; a harder rock that can be more elaborately carved and better survives the rigors of time. This is an opportunity to capture some good photographs of the clear and detailed carvings. Banteay Samre: Its rose-colored sandstone walls are decorated with carvings and bas-reliefs, which are among the most accomplished Angkor has to offer.
For the later afternoon we head back into main Angkor Park and journey to Tasom. Tasom offers some beautiful photo spots, especially the rear entrance where tree roots adorn the gateway. We finish by experiencing sunset over the rice fields from the royal crematorium of Pre Rup, a classic view of the Cambodian countryside. Overnight stay in Siem Reap.

This cruise gives us a view of the wonderful landscape and insight into the daily life found along the river.  We will have a packed lunch on board as the cruise takes about 6-7 hours. After cruising through floating villages we disembark from our boat and drive the last portion into Battambang where we check into our hotel.
Battambang is Cambodia’s second largest city, situated on the banks of the Stung Sangker River and possesses some of the grandest and best preserved colonial architecture. This is also a wonderful place to see Cambodia’s rural way of life in the surrounding traditional farmed countryside. Note: Boat is able to operate from September to February only due to level of water.
 
Day 11 Battambang Sightseeing (breakfast + lunch)

The Bamboo Train has been set up by the villagers to facilitate the transportation of goods and people. The train in itself is very basic – one platform on 4 wheels activated by a small motor. Sitting on the platform we travel the 8km to the next station through beautiful landscape and rice paddies. This afternoon, we visit a local family graph farm, Cambodia’s first vineyard – Prasat Phnom Banan Vineyard – you can pop in if you like, learn about producing wine in the tropics and of course enjoy a spot of wine tasting!
