Day 1 – Phnom Penh to Takeo - (L / D)

In the morning, we will take you at your hotel and then, drive to the South.
First, we will stop at Phnom Tamao wildlife sanctuary. This sanctuary has 2,500 hectares of forest-protected area. 1,200 of them were taken by the Department of Forestry for planning trees, and 70 hectares, consisting of five hills, have been organised as a zoo and wildlife rescue centre. This zoo was established to preserve and rescue rare and endangered local species from poachers and smugglers and accommodate a variety of animals including tigers, bears, peacocks, herons, crocodiles and turtles. Phnom Tamao is home to 70 Sun bears and Asiatic bears that have been rescued with the help of the NGO Free the Bears which aim is to protect, preserve and enrich the lives of bears and those who live alongside them throughout the world. An 11th century temple ruin in very poor condition (Prasat Tamao) sits at the top of Phnom Tamao. Afterward, we will also stop at the two temples of Tonle Bati, an important worshipping place and a popular local weekend picnic site where we will have our picnic lunch.
In the afternoon, we will visit Phnom Chisor. At the top of this mountain sits the well preserved Angkorian era temple ruin, built under King Suryavarman I during a period when Angkorian Empire was powerful and on the rise. This temple is Hindu as most of the temples of this period. One sees carved scenes with the Hindu Gods Braham, Shiva and Vishnu on sandstones lintels and pediments. The quality of the ruins and the splendid view of the countryside is well worth the effort of climbing the 412 steps to reach the top of the hill. Then, we drive to ourhomestay in the surroundings where we will be received by our host family. After a short rest we will help our host family prepare dinner and enjoy a friendly meal together.
Overnight in homestay, Takeo.

                                           


Day 2 – Takeo to Kampot - (B / L)
After breakfast we will enjoy a 40-minute boat trip along the canals of Takeo, through the rice fields and marshland to visit the ancient Funan ruin temples of Phnom Da which is the oldest historical site in Cambodia and Angkor Borei as well as visit a nearby museum housed in a small colonial building.
We will continue to Kampot. Kampot is the durian growing region of Cambodia and is also renowned for producing one of the world’s finest peppers. On the way, we will visit some limestone caves with exotic rock formations and Buddhist shrines. On arrival, we will relax at Epic Arts Café. This Café belongs to the NGO Epic Arts which trains disabled people to do arts performance in order to allow them to regain some self-confidence and respect. 
Later in the afternoon, we will take a boat on the Prek Kampong Bay River, which runs along the city for a sunset river cruise. Passing through a Cham village, this journey will lead us to the rapids at Tekchhou, a pleasant place very popular with the locals on weekends. We will return to Kampot for dinner.
Overnight in Kampot. Accomodation at Borey Bokor hotel or similar.

                                           


Day 3 – Kampot : Bokor Hill Station - (B / L)
After breakfast we will drive to Bokor Hill Station. This site is located on a 1000 meters high plateau of steaming jungle, shy wildlife and abandoned buildings. Built by the French as a casino resort in the 1920s (with the casino, a hotel, a post-office and a church), it enjoyed a new boom with the building of a royal residence by King Sihanouk in 1959 before being abandoned to the elements in 1970. Off-limits until recent years, the building fell apart. The specific climate of the site, often shrouded in fog and clouds, completes the mysterious atmosphere of this ghost-town. In addition, the view of the coast from the top is really spectacular. We will spend a full day in this eccentric and surprising site with a picnic lunch near the Popokvil waterfalls. We will drive back to Kampot in the evening where we will have dinner. After a day on the bumpy roads of Bokor, you will be perhaps tempted by a shiatsu-style massage or a foot massage at “Seeing Hands 5 Massage” or “Kampot Massage by the Blind”, two places offering massages by seeing-impaired masseurs and masseuses.
Overnight in Kampot. Accomodation at Borey Bokor hotel or similar.

Day 4 – Kampot to Phnom Penh - (B)
After breakfast, we will drive to Kep, a former health station on the edge of the South-China Sea. The ruins of the ancient French holidays villas stand along the beachfront and in the surroundings hills. We will pass through pepper and fruit plantations, such as durian, mangosteen, rambutan, pineapple, grapefruit, coconut, mak prang and coconut plantations. Kampot is the durian growing region of Cambodia and is also renowned for producing one of the world’s finest peppers. On the way, we will visit some limestone caves with exotic rock formations and Buddhist shrines, like Kbal Meal or in Phnom Chhnok near Kbal Romeas.
Kep is famous for its seafood and we will stop there for lunch. In the afternoon, we will drive to Kompong Trach a small city which main attraction is a series of limestone caves and passages that have been carved into a nearby mountain. We will visit the modern vat Kirisan, built at the bottom of Phnom Sor (White Mountain), from where an underpass goes to another sanctuary in the heart of the hill. The roof of a large cave has collapsed making a small enclosed jungle. Then, we will drive back to Phnom Penh where the tour ends. finish trip Phnom Penh excurions
