Day 1 : Phnom Penh – Kratie
 
After meeting at hotel in Phnom Penh we depart for the charming Mekong port of Kratie, gateway to an encounter with the rare freshwater Irrawaddy dolphins that inhabit the upper reaches of the Mekong in Cambodia.
En route, there is the chance to pause at Skuon, affectionately known as ‘Spiderville’, where it is possible to sample the local delicacy of deep fried tarantula.

Arrive in Kompong Cham we visit Wat Nokor also called Nokor Bachey Pagoda  an 11th century Mahayana Buddhist shrine made of sandstone and laterite with a large reclining Buddha and numerous alcoves containing Buddha images. We continue to Phnom Pros (“Man Hill”) and Phnom Srei (“Woman Hill”). According to local tradition, two teams of men and women competed to build a stupa on the summit of each hill before dawn. After being tricked into thinking that daybreak had already come, the men lost the competition and, as a result, forever after had to be the ones to approach the women for their hands in marriage. En route stop at Chhlong village to admire one of the oldest wooden houses of Cambodia.
Stay overnight in Kratie.

Day 2 : Dolphin Tour - Preah Rumkel Community ( Meals : Breakfast, Dinner )
 
We farewell Kratie and stop at the hilltop temple of Phnom Sombok . Continue to Kampi, one of the many deep pools where the rare freshwater Irrawaddy river dolphins gather to feed. We board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance to encounter with these gentle creatures. Viewing is almost guarantee, although it is easier to see the dolphins in the shallower waters of the dry season, than in the swollen river of the wet season.

We travel northwest towards Stung Treng . We will be welcomed by a local family on the bank of the Mekong River . In the late afternoon, we survey Sopheakmet Waterfall ; that thwarted the grand designs of French colonialists and which now mark the Lao border. Along the way there is an opportunity to see Cambodian-Laos fishermen and you can learn about their fishing style . There are a few different places for viewing the falls depending on the time of the year.
 
Tonight, you will have an overnight stay in a traditional Cambodian home under mosquito net at one of the local family who live on the bank of the Mekong River ; experience bucket shower like Khmer people and only a few hours generator run for own electricity.
 
Stay overnight in Home-stay at Preah Rumkel.
 
Day 3 : Kayaking & Boat trip along Mekong River ( Meals : Breakfast, Lunch)
 
After breakfast, we enjoy a short boat trip down to O’Svay where we will start our paddling tours to explore the remote flooded forest of the Mekong, Ramsa wetlands . It stretches south along the Mekong River from the border with Laos to Stung Treng . Only accessible by boat, it is a haven for critically endangered mammals, birds and fish and a unique riverine flooded forest system that is a photographer’s dream. With only birdcalls announcing our presence, we maneuvered our way leisurely downstream for a couple of hours before reaching the only village on that stretch of the the river, Veun Sien, where we beached our kayak for lunch break and wandered around the village.

Our paddling tour of the forest continue until one point that you feel enough, we will travel by boat which follow us back to O’Svay and travel with our van back to Stung Treng . We might arrive on time to view beautiful sunset over the river on Chinese-Cambodian Friendship Sekong Bridge.
 
Stay overnight in Stung Treng.
 
Day 4 : Stung Treng – Preah Vihear ( Meals : Breakfast, Lunch )
 
This morning we will take you to a local restaurant that is famous for Laos breakfast . We continue our trip to Preah Vihear .
 
We drive up to Preah Vihear, which sits at the top of the Dangrek Mountains . Preah Vihear is known as the Temple Mountain, which was built at the beginning of the 10th century as a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva . The temple had further works added to it by the following three kings .  The temple today is still a Hindu site, but Buddhist Monks pray at the temple to the Gods . The temple area consists of three stories surrounded by two galleries. Overnight in Preah Vihear.
 
Day 5 : Preah Vihear – Siem Reap ( Meal: Breakfast )
 
We continue our trip to Siem Reap. Our first stop is at Koh Ker a group of many temples in the forest, about 150 km from Siem Reap . These were built when Cambodia was ruled by two kings ( uncle and nephew ), and Koh Ker was briefly one of the two capital cities, during the 1st half of the 10th century. Some of the temples are still covered with jungle.

We arrive Svay Leu Village and start trekking into the bamboo forest from the village to Peuong Komnu, a serie of Angkorian reliefs carved into the southern cliff of Phnom Kulen, the quality of the work and their preservation is remarkable and the danger of inevitable plunder of the site makes them all the more precious . It is undiscovered tourist site in Angkor areas.
 
We also visit Beng Mealea  an overgrown ruin 90mn away from Siem Reap. It is huge, but little known and largely untouched . Besides this temple, we see a small quarry where sandstone was cut to build the temple . The technique used to cut the stones will be explained there. We may take more than an hour to visit the entire Temple.

I was part of a group that used Angkor Focus to book several trips. I was very impressed with the speed and efficiency of service, especially when we gave very little notice on more than one occasion!! Sam Nang, you are a real gem, and I would recommend your business without hesitation! .

I have used Angkor Focus to book bus trips for group tours from Phnom Penh and Siem Reap on several occasions. I found the booking procedure excellent, staff are so friendly and helpful that I will now book more tours with this company because of the ease of doing so.

We used this company for 2 days - Floating and Village and Koh Ker with our group of 7. Great service, everything went smoothly and we would definitely use them again. The Manager Mr.Sam Nang is excellent. Goes over and above what is asked.

This trip was our first time visiting Siem Reap, Cambodia. Our 4-day tour was such a great time. Great package (deal) for a short stay. We got to visit mostly all the main temples (Angkor Wat, Banteay Srey, Angkor Thom, and more) and Beng Mealea. The pick-up and drop off service was also a plus. It's also a good experience...More
