Welcome to Sihanoukville, the perfect gateway for our Cambodian adventure, where sandy bliss and crystal clear water waits. After settling into our hotel, you’re free to explore this colourful historical town, or just lie by the pool & soak up the sun. Later, we’ll rendezvous back at base so you can hear the trip plan for the week, before we kickstart the evening’s revelries.
Today we make our way to the small fishing village of Kep to check out the French colonial architecture and get acquainted with one of Cambodia’s many beautiful beaches.
This evening it’s your chance to explore the small town area, where you can mingle with the locals and really get a feel for life outside of the city hustle and bustle.
After a short boat ride, you’ll spend the day in palm-fringed island paradise on Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island).
You’re free to swim in the balmy sea, taste the local seafood or just park yourself in a hammock with cold drink in hand, however you want to soak up tropical vibes of this beautiful island.
After breakfast we head towards magical Kampot, one of Cambodia’s most charming towns. Enroute we’ll stop at the La Plantation Pepper Farm and learn about what makes Kampot so famous, before going in search of the Secret Lake.
Once we’re settled into our centrally located hotel, there’s time to check out the lively, small market town and riverside front with the cluster of bars, restaurants and shops that line the promenade.
With a free day on the cards today, Kampot is your oyster. Take a stroll through this riverside town, get snaps of the historic French architecture or take a hike into the Bokor National Park to visit the famous abandoned palace.
Our second go at island life awaits, and Koh Rong is an island that really pulls out all the stops.
Welcome to your new favourite hideaway, with clear turquoise water and white sands that sparkle in the sun. This unique island is almost 99% jungle with only resorts and beach huts lining the shore. It’s unlike any other island in South East Asia, and Koh Rong is all yours for two nights.
Today you have a free day to enjoy the tropical vibes of Koh Rong. Make your way through the jungle paths to the lively port of White Beach, where local bars line the shores. Or head to your own beach and play a game of volleyball or football. When you need some chill time, just lay yourself down in one of the hammocks overlooking the sea, or take a drink by the pool and soak up the music in the air.
After breakfast we farewell island paradise as we board a boat for Sihanoukville and the mainland.
Our trip will wrap up upon arrival in Sihanoukville.
