AC20-CB5T (11 Days/10 Nights)
Poipet (Cambodia & Thai Border) - Sisophon - Siem Reap - Phnom Penh - Takeo - Kampot - Koh Kong
This program offers the opportunity to cross the borders between Cambodia and Thailand. In the meanwhile, we can explore the beauties of Cambodia.
11 days/10 nights
Some parts of the roads may be difficult to drive during the rainy season (July & August). In this case we may have to rent 4x4 with additional charges.
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. Most of the times, the cruise starts from Kompong Chhang which is about 3 hours drive from Phnom Penh because the water level is low and the boat cannot start from Phnom Penh.
In the rest of the months (from October to February), the express boats are operating and there is no problem.
