King Sihankouk considered Kirirom National Park his favourite retreat. Nowadays, the breathtaking national park offers visitors a wonderful forest getaway, with plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities and wonderful green forest scenery. Saddle up and explore the sprawling national park and Happy Mountain, and take a ride on a locally-built bamboo train, a unique and unforgettable experience.
The overnight stay is in Chambok, a community-based ecotourism venture consisting of nine local villages. Experience rural Cambodian life up close and personal, interact with the cheery residents, and experience a once-in-a-lifetime homestay with a local Cambodian family.
Both our guides, in Cambodia were excellent. However, I would like to nominate Channak for an award because we felt he gave an outstanding level of service, showing us things that weren't on the itinerary which we would never have found by ourselves and going out of his way to do so. His general sociability and ability to talk to local people, including more reserved tribal people, meant that we had a much greater insight into the community than we expected and we felt privileged to be there with him. He also has personal experience (from childhood) of the Khmer Rouge regime which made our visits to Toul Sleng and Choeung Ek in particular even more poignant than they would have been otherwise.
