Day-to-Day Itinerary : Family Cambodia with South Coast Adventure

DAY 1 – DEPART THE UK

 Depart the UK.

DAY 2 – SIEM REAP

 Your guide will meet you at the airport when you land in Siem Reap. Transfer to your hotel where the rest of the day can be spent at leisure relaxing and recovering from the flight.

DAY 3 – SIEM REAP

Take a leisurely bike ride to Ta Prohm, one of the most atmospheric  temples in the whole region, with bloated tree trunks eerily snaking in and out of the ruins and large trees growing straight out of the stones. It is an atmospheric, jungle-covered complex that is lovely in the morning light with parrots and other exotic birds flying about the treetops and very few other visitors.

Continue on to Angkor Thom, which translates as “Great City” in Khmer. Cycle through the famous Victory Gate into the temple complex flanked by impressive stone soldiers and see the famous Terrace of Elephants. There is plenty of shade around Angkor Thom and lots of flat trails, making it a great temple to explore by bike.

Spend a few hours relaxing by the hotel pool and having lunch before a late afternoon quad bike ride through the countryside. Finish the day watching the sun dip below the rice fields.

DAY 4 – SIEM REAP

This morning you will have the option to visit the magnificent Angkor Wat for sunrise. This temple is the largest religious building ever constructed and is one of the wonders of the world. The earlier you rise the better - the complex can get quite busy at sunrise itself - so to arrive when the moon and the stars are still out is ideal, when essentially you will have the temples to yourselves in the most magical of settings.

In the afternoon take a boat trip around Mey Chrey, a floating village, off the main tourist trail on the Tonle Sap lake. As you head back to shore, your ox and cart will be waiting for you to take you on a ride through villages and farm land - a great way to mingle with the locals and see how they live. Head back to Siem Reap town, with the option to stop en route at Artisan d'Angkors Silk Farm. Here you can see the production of silk from caterpillars into beautifully finished handicrafts.

DAY 5 – SIEM REAP

This morning you have the chance (should you wish!) to zip-line through the Angkor forest with Flight of the Gibbons. Prepare to soar on zip lines, traverse suspended sky bridges and abseil from towering trees. After lunch there will be relaxation time at the hotel followed by a visit to beautiful Banteay Srey, a temple that is famous for the stunning pink hue of its red sandstones. You’ll amble back to base through the countryside and there is an optional stop to watch the sun set.

DAY 6– KaMPONG THOM

This morning you will head south towards the Tonle Sap Lake to visit an undiscovered floating village; a lively community on the water with floating shops, pagodas and houses to explore. Next visit Spean Praptos, a huge Angkorian bridge built by King Jayaverman VII in the 12th Century. You will arrive in Kompong Thom by the afternoon, where you can spend the rest of the day at leisure.

DAY 7 – PHNOM PENH

Continuing towards Phnom Penh you will stop at the town of Skuon, a lively market town that is known as "spiderville" in the local language as it has become famous for selling deep-fried spiders as a traditional snack. Those brave enough can sample this local delicacy for themselves! You will reach Phnom Penh by the afternoon.

Day 8 - Phnom Penh

Enjoy a full day exploring the highlights of the historical Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh. Visit the glittering Royal Palace, the National Museum and have lunch at a local NGO. In the afternoon peruse the colourful central market for a spot of souvenir shopping, followed by a cyclo tour around downtown Phnom Penh. You will whizz past Noradom Boulevard, the bustling train station, the old Post Office, Wat Phnom and more. All you need to do is sit back, relax and watch a typical Phnom Penh afternoon unfold in front of you.

DAY 9 – KEP

Transfer to the sleepy seaside town of Kep. You will start your journey around 8am and stop en route at various sites including a small fishing village. Before reaching Kep your last stop will be a fascinating cave temple that is seldom visited by other tourists, but is full of shrines and pagodas from constant worship by locals. Arrive in Kep by the afternoon.

DAY 10 – KEP

 Jump in your private tuk-tuk for a tour of the seaside town of Kep. You will drive past abandoned colonial villas, the crab market, Kep's beach and local pepper plantations, for which Kep has now become quite internationally renowned. Your guide will take you to the crab market for a fresh and delicious lunch, and then the rest of the afternoon is at leisure for you to relax at your hotel or continue to explore this quaint town.

 DAY 11 – KEP

Visit Kep National Park where you can gently hike along easy trails to see the plethora of flora and fauna, as well as sweeping coastal views out to the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc. After lunch visit Rabbit island, a beautiful little oasis off the coast of Cambodia with sandy white beaches and excellent waters for swimming, with plenty of coral and sea life. Relax on the beach, try fresh seafood from one of the local fish shacks, swim in the calm blue ocean or rest in the shade, all the time enjoying the beautiful views of the island.

DAY 12 – KAMPOT

 Transfer by road to Kampot. En route stop at a Hindu cave temple with stalactites and stalagmites growing through the roof. After lunch, explore Kampot town on foot with its lovely colonial architecture, temples and boat yards.

 DAY 13 – CHAMPA LODGE

Take a boat transfer to Champa Lodge, passing under bridges and through stunning rural countryside with the Bokor mountain range in the distance. After about 30-40 minutes cruising you will arrive at the unique property, a beautiful rural retreat with traditional stilted lodges on a bend of the Kampot river. Once you've settled into your lodge, the rest of the day is yours to try your hand at one of the many excursions on offer.
