For history buffs, Kulen Mountain is a great follow-up to an Angkor Temple Tour. The mountain is a holy symbol for Cambodians as it is the birthplace of the Khmer Empire.

They lay like slumbering giants reminiscent of past glories waiting to be discovered by you.
Buddhist Water Blessing
The Cambodian water blessing is a very unique and ancient way to wash away the bad and bring yourself better luck, good health and happiness. The blessing involves visiting a monk at an active pagoda who will chant as he sprinkles or douses you with water. This ceremony is particularly popular with newlyweds and couples to celebrate their union together.
The Bamboo train’s old railway line was once used to travel to Phnom Penh. Nowadays, the train only runs 7 kilometres to a small village on the outskirts of Battambang. This is a must do and it has become a popular attraction amongst all travellers as it is very unique and really fun. The best time to do this trip is in the late afternoon.
Sambor Prei Kuk
This pre-Angkorian complex is a must for any serious temple enthusiast, and is the perfect introduction to the main temples in Siem Reap. The Ancient capital city was constructed in the late 6th century by the Chenla Kingdom, roughly 150 years before the rise of the Angkor Empire. Get off the beaten path, as the area is not well known to tourists to Cambodia.
Floating Villages & Tonle Sap
The Tonle Sap Lake is the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia and the richest fishing lake in the world. No trip to Siem Reap is complete without a day tour to the Kampong Phluk and Kampon Kleang communities which have made their home on the lake, where they live in fascinating stilted houses.
Elephant lovers should look no further, as this is the best elephant experience that Cambodia has to offer. Ride on top of your elephant’s neck (no heavy seating baskets are used) through lush jungle. During this day trip you will also get to care and reward your new companion by washing it down before returning back to the local tribal village.
During your day at the Elephant Sanctuary you will get to know all about these incredible animals, such as their forest habits, character, behaviour and body language. You will help out with the daily tasks by feeding and caring for the elephants, as well as having the opportunity to hose and wash them down after a warm day. A rewarding experience for all of the family to enjoy.
BBQ with a local tribal family
This is probably the most authentic experience in Cambodia, as you get to talk to real tribal people about their lives and the area that they live. You can help out with preparing the barbecue or you can go and play with the local children. What makes this trip special is that your guide Hong was the same guide assisting Gordon Ramsay in Cambodia, and so Hong can cook some mean kebabs.

Yaek Lom Volcanic Lake
No trip to Ratanakiri is complete without a trip to the stunning 700,000 crater lake, which is one of the top 10 most picturesque crater lakes in the world. Many locals visit the lake to relax or to enjoy a picnic. It is possible not only to walk around the entire lake, which takes around an hour, but it is also possible to swim in its cool waters.
Dolphin Watching & Kayaking
Wildlife lovers shouldn’t miss the chance to see the incredibly rare Irrawaddy Dolphins residing in the Dolphin pool of Kampi. The pool is located just 15km north of Kratie, and you can either choose to board a local fishermen’s boat or Kayak your way to the pool yourself.

City Cyclo Tour
First introduced in 1936, cyclos remain to this day, a popular form of transportation throughout Southeast Asia. A traditional cyclo ride gives you time to appreciate your surroundings as you traverse Phnom Penh’s various landmarks. The capital city is full of nooks and crannies waiting to be explored and a cyclo is the perfect way to travel.
The golfing scene in Phnom Penh has got something for everyone and the courses in the area are very impressive. The golf scene in Cambodia is gaining momentum fast, so get in ahead of the curve, and keep an eye out as I am sure there will be a lot more quality courses being built very soon.
Sunset Boat Cruise
Enjoy a spectacular sunset over the Phnom Penh skyline on the slow-moving waters of the Mekong River. Floating village residents and local fishermen go about their lives as you cruise past them while you enjoy a few drinks, nibbles and dinner too. Simply put, this is the perfect way to start any evening in Cambodia’s capital.
Toul Sleng & Killing Fields Tour
Take a heart-wrenching journey through Cambodia’s tumultuous past by visiting the Tuol Sleng Museum (S-21) & Choeung Ek (Killing Fields).

Bokor Hill Station Trip
Take a trip back in time to the 1930s Colonial era by visiting the Bokor Hill Station near Kampot. The station was built during colonial times so that the French could escape the soaring pre-monsoon temperatures. On this day tour you will enjoy stunning views of the coast and surrounding areas as you sit back and enjoy your mountainside picnic.
Local Countryside Tour
Kep & Kampot
The Kampot and Kep Countryside Tour is the best way to get a taste of local life. Visit a 5th century Hindu temple hidden in majestic caves, explore the abandoned French holiday residences from the colonial era that litter Kep, and visit the local salt flats and pepper plantations that are famous world over.
Looking to escape into the wondrous blue? The Cambodian coast has a diverse marine life with beautiful coral reefs and most importantly a distinct lack of divers to get in your way.
