AC20-CC3 (07 Days/06 Nights)
Phnom Penh - Battambang - Siem Reap
This program has been designed for those who wish to discover not only the highlights of Cambodia but also something special which has not been touched yet by a lot of foreigners.
07 days/06 nights
There are two different boats operating between these two cities, depending on the season. In the dried season (from March to September), only the small boat is available. There are not seats and only the long benches with sofas are available.It takes about 7 hours in the dried season. Sometimes, we cannot be able to do this route by road then we might have to use the overland which takes about 4 hours. In the rest of the months (from September to February), the express boats are operating and there is no problem.
