Vacation Activities Highlight
A ten day tour that takes in some of the attractions of Phnom Penh before setting out up the Mekong River. We visit cultural and natural sites along the river before heading to the mountains on the Thai border where an ancient temple is perched 500 metres above the Cambodian forest. Along the way we visit schools, orphanages, temples, see rare wildlife and we'll give away 10% of the tour proceeds to worthy causes. You'll see where the last of the Khmer Rouge evaded capture after their defeat by the Vietnamese, intricate carvings in the stones on the bottom of a river, and finally the temples of Angkor. Travelling in our air conditioned minibus the pace is relaxed, there's plenty of time to stop and take photos. Away from the cities and highways, Cambodia is caught in a time warp. There are some very special and unique photo opportunities - grab them while you can. Paleriders – Cambodia is a family operated tour business. Tour sizes are kept small and can be quite flexible, so it’s more like a group of friends travelling together than an organised tour.
Vacation Activities Detail Information
Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Phnom Penh. Travel by tuk tuk to the hotel, check-in and have free time until we meet and greet in the evening. After dinner, sightseeing tour of Phnom Penh by tuk-tuk (dinner, hotel room and tuk-tuk hire included).

Day 2 – Visit Choeng Ek Killing Field Museum, Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, markets, NACOPCA Orphanage (all meals, hotel room, entry fees, guides, bottled water and tuk-tuk hire included).

Day 3 - Travel to Kampong Cham, a trip of 2 – 3 hours. On arrival, check into the hotel then have lunch. In the afternoon we will visit an orphanage, Wat Nokor Temple and Phnom Srey Temple. If you haven’t seen wild monkeys before you should see some here (all meals, hotel room, entry fees, bottled water and car hire included).

Day 4 – A lovely 20 km drive upriver from Kampong Cham will bring us to Han Chey Mountain, another hilltop temple. You should see some gibbons here. From there the road is dirt, following the river until we reach a ferry crossing. There’s a fair bit of dirt on the other side of the river, as we travel through some Cham (Muslim) villages towards our destination, Kratie. We’ll stop along the road for lunch, and should arrive mid afternoon giving you a couple of hours to rest, or browse through the markets. Later in the afternoon we’ll travel to Kampi, about 20 km upriver where we can see rare freshwater dolphins swimming around our boat (all meals, hotel room, entry fees, guides, bottled water and car hire included).

Day 5 – We’ll travel past Kampi to Wat Sar Sar Mou Roi (100 Column Temple). There is a centre nearby for conservation of the rare Mekong turtle which we’ll also visit.
