Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, two of the most visited cities in Cambodia, and for good reasons. Phnom Penh, the capital, is a burgeoning city, ready to stand side by side with the big capitals of the region. Mixing the traditional and modern with wide boulevards and a park like riverfront, there’s so much to savor here. And what can be said about Siem Reap? This probably has to be one of the world’s if not the world’s capital of ancient ruins and temples. But what about what’s in between these two cities? This is your chance to savor the sights and sounds of everything in between, via a cruise.
The Tonle Sap. The lifeline of the people of Cambodia. One of the country’s major sources of water. And your channel of transportation to and from these mentioned cities. Interestingly, it is both a river and a lake, depending on the season. And this body of fresh water is Southeast Asia’s largest.
Ready for a cruisin’? The ship will be your home for the next couple of nights. Set off from Phnom Penh and to your first stop, the country’s former capital, Oudong. Here, you can test your fitness. How do 509 steps sound like? Does the daunting task sound easier knowing that by reaching the top, you’ll be rewarded with superb views and a scenic hill temple?
Your boat trip also includes local excursions and opportunities for you to blend in with the locals. Prek Kdam, a small village specializing in silverware is your next stop and the perfect place for the savoring of rural Cambodia.
Bask in the rural flavor some more at Kompong Chhnang, one of the largest fishing ports in the area. Here you’ll be one of the locals as you stroll markets and streets, all the while absorbing the sights and sounds of old colonial mansions and ceramics-making villages. Your next stop is also a village, but this time it is on water. Hop back on your vessel and head to Kompong Luong, one of the biggest floating villages on the Tonle Sap.
