From Ancient Shrines to White-Sand Shores
Understand the life of the Buddhist population.
Before exploring the temples of Angkor in a different way, you cycle the area that surrounds Siem Reap and get to understand the life of the Buddhist population. Monks will bless your journey, explain about Buddhism and you picnic amidst the waterfall of Kulen.
Cycle through the paddy fields to the floating village and kayak through the small waterways alongside the floating houses. At Banteay Chhmar you experience Cambodian hospitality at its best and stay over at a homestay. Visit Cambodia’s most mysterious temple: Banteay Chhmar.
You continue your journey to Battambang and explore the countryside by tuktuk or bicycle. Meet with local villagers who show you how noodles, rice paper and sticky rice is being made. When the journey continues to Phnom Penh, stops are made in Kampong Chhnang and Oudong where you explore the roots of the Khmer Empire.
In Phnom Penh you visit all the places not mentioned in the guide books and dive deep into the alleyways of 1960’s Phnom Penh. From the capital of the country you head south, to Kep. Visit the very enjoyable Tonle Bati temple where you light incense with an elderly nun. After arrival in Kep you an either hike through the national park of Kep to find the best sunset view or cycle the area dotted with lime stone karst formations and caves.
Enjoy a cooking class at one of the best resorts in the south of Cambodia and bring home something more than just pictures and stories. The journey ends off the coast of Sihanoukville. The Koh Rong archipelago is Cambodia’s most pristine and home to wonderful beaches, still hidden away from the crowds. It is the perfect place to regroup after a culturally filled journey. The white sand, palm trees and blue ocean are the perfect final image you need before you travel back home.
