12 Day Cambodia Explorer- Itinerary
ARRIVE IN SIEM REAP…
On day one of the Cambodia Explorer, you choose either an airport pick-up or meet us at our hostel, where we’ll introduce you to the crew. You’ll have the day to chill & get settled in or explore the city before we head out in the evening for a welcome meal and a few drinks on the aptly named Pub Street to get to know each other.
COOKING CLASS & SUNSET BBQ
Learn to cook some traditional Cambodian dishes with our Khmer master chef and feast on all of your tasty creations. In the evening we grab a tuk-tuk and head up to the beautiful rice terraces just outside Siem Reap to enjoy a lovely sunset BBQ.
SUNRISE AT ANGKOR WAT
On Day 3 we get up early and take a tuk-tuk ride to the ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site and some of the oldest and largest religious monuments in the world. We watch the sun rise over the main temple building then explore a few of the more important and spectacular sites. In the afternoon we jump on a private minibus to Phnom Penh.
S21 & KHMER KILLING FIELDS
Tradition dictates that whilst in Phnom Penh, we must take a tour of the chilling, eye-opening sites of the Khmer Killing Fields and S21. These two historical landmarks shine some light on Cambodia’s shocking not-too-distant history.
KAMPOT RIVER ACTIVITIES
Today we head a couple of hours south to Kampot, a cool little town on the river. After we get checked in we head down river to a great spot with rope swings, pontunes and tubes where we can spend the afternoon chilling or playing on the river.
KAMPOT RIVER CRUISE
Check out Rural Cambodia by boat and take it these stunning views of the countryside from the water. Kampot is another destination with amazing natural surroundings, very different from the city or beaches you will see next.
TRAVEL TO SIHANOUKVILLE
Time to hit up the beach as we head further south to the popular backpacker town of Sihanoukville. Famous for beaches and parties it would be rude not to head out in the evening to join the rest of the backpackers in the areas for a bit of a beach party.
SIHANOUKVILLE BOAT TRIP
Today we jump on a boat for the day and search for the best snorkelling spots on the south coast and neighbouring islands.
KOH RONG SAMLOEM
Arguably one of the most beautiful spots of the whole trip, we spend two days on the gorgeous Koh Rong Samloem staying at our favourite backpacker resort in its own private bay.
KOH RONG SAMLOEM
Spend the whole day as you wish, you can relax on the beach, play on the inflatables, chill on the sea hammocks and swings or take out a kayak and explore.
RETURN TO PHNOM PENH
We head back to Phnom Penh for the final night of the trip. Use the afternoon to explore or recharge because in the evening, we will take you out for a farewell dinner and party to celebrate the end of an awesome trip.
Today is sadly check-out day, but whether you’re going home, moving on or joining another TruTour for the next leg of your journey – we’ll make sure you’re in the right place at the right time for the fun to roll on!
