Day 1 – Cambodia Tour Of Trekking And Kayaking With Angkor Wat: Arrival – Phnom Penh (-/-/-)
Arrive in Phnom Penh and enjoy a relaxing evening by the riverside. You will be picked up by taxi from the airport and transferred to your hotel.
Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, what was once considered the ‘Gem’ of Indochina. The capital city still maintains considerable charm with plenty to see.
It exudes a sort of provincial charm and tranquillity with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture. Phnom Penh is a veritable oasis compared to the modernity of other Asian capitals. A mixture of Asian exotica, the famous Cambodian hospitality awaits the visitors to the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Day 4 – Cambodia Tour Of Trekking And Kayaking With Angkor Wat: Ratanakiri – Ta Veng
Depart by car North to Ta Veng on the Se San River. From there, begin trekking into the jungles. Ratanakiri is located in Cambodia’s far northeast bordered by Laos to the north, Vietnam to the east, Mondulkiri to the south, and Stung Treng to the west. This rural rugged province is a 70% ethnic minority, which are known as “Chunchiet”.
Ratanakiri was as recently as 2002 seriously off the beaten track but has since been “discovered” step by step. Still, while you won’t get any bragging rights for coming here, it’s well worth the effort to do so, and once you get away from it’s capital Banlung you won’t run into too many other tourists.
So Ratanakiri is still a remote province in Northeastern Cambodia worth to visit. The word “Ratanakiri” itself is a derivative of two Cambodian words, which are combined to mean “place of gems and mountains.” The word comes from the Sanskrit words Ratna (gem) and giri (mountain).
Overnight at a tribal village.
