We will leave Phnom Penh after breakfast and drive to the south by public bus. This 5 hours trip will cross the Cambodian countryside, passing bucolic villages and scenic rice paddies. On the way, you will see people at work in the rice fields, driving oxcarts and other strange vehicles as well as peaceful water buffaloes lying on pond along the road. Our destination is the small city of Kep, famous for its seafood, especially fresh crab.
Upon arrival, a thirty minutes boat cruise will take us on Rabbit Island (Koh Tunsay), a lovely little island that sits offshore from Kep. You will be able to enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal sea before having a beach dinner of outsanding seafood : it doesn't get fresher than here! We will spend the night in wooden bungalows along the beach of this quiet place.

Day 3 – Kep - Rabbit Island (Kep) (B / L / D)
We will spend a whole day on Rabbit island. You will be able to admire the sunrise on the sea or enjoy a long lie. This small island has two white sandy beaches with coconut trees and shallow waters. Enjoy a relaxing time on the beach, snorkel in clean waters around the rocks and admire a variety of beautiful fish. You can also walk along the beaches or inside the island through the beautiful forest hoping to see some giant bats, unless you are just dreaming of lying on a hammock with a good book and cocktail drink.

Day 4 – Kep to Sihanoukville (B)
After breakfast we take the boat back to Kep and then resume our journey on the road which runs along the sea to Sihanoukville. Sihanoukville town, also called Kompong Som, sits in the center of a small peninsula that juts into the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand. This is Cambodia’s leading beach resort. There are white-sand beaches around the headland, unspoilt islands off the coast and the popular Khal Chhay waterfall near town. You will have a free afternoon to enjoy the beaches or explore the city.

Today, we will organise a boat trip on the Gulf of Thailand. There are several nearby islands with good snorkelling waters and white sand beaches – within a 40-minutes to 2-hours boat trip. The boat will stop close to islands with rocky reefs providing a rich marine life for snorkelling before to shore to Koh Russei island with uninhabited sandy beaches where you will relax while your guide will prepare lunch. We will spend the rest of the day in this chill out, no hassle atmosphere. The island provides two white-sand beaches. The ten-minute walk between beaches is pleasant one; they're connected by a path that traverses the island through a jungly forest filled with deafening cicadas.
We will dine of fresh seafood BB and spend the night in basic wooden bungalows along the beach.
