Whether you are into cycling, water sports or golf; Cambodia has something for everyone. Here are some of the best activities to do in Cambodia, but we have plenty more up our sleeves so do ask us.
Trekking & Wildlife
Cambodia has some wonderful national parks that provide ample opportunity for trekking and wildlife spotting, including Bokor National Park in Kampot and Ream National Park in Sihanoukville. There are some lovely hikes to be had in the south-western area of Koh Rong, meanwhile the ‘wild’ northeast provinces of Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri have all been de-mined and are quite safe for multi-day treks. There are plenty of bird watching opportunities as Cambodia is home to the regions rarest and largest water birds – including the stork and the pelican – especially around Siem Reap.
Water Sports & Diving
Sihanoukville and the islands off the south-coast are the places to head for water activities. You will find an array of water sports on offer at the main beaches in Sihanoukville including windsurfing and kite-surfing. Meanwhile, the best snorkelling and diving sites can be found around the islands off the coast – including Koh Rong Samloem and the private island of Song Saa.
Cycling can be a lovely way to explore Cambodia and visit rural village life, which is only ever a stones-throw away from all the main town and cities. We especially love the cycling trip that we offer around rural Battambang – and it is also a great way to get around some of the temples that are closer together. For those that are after something a little more adrenalin-fuelled dirt biking is also taking off here.
Boating enthusiasts will be glad to hear there are plenty of opportunities to get on the water in Cambodia. There are a plethora of river tours down the Mekong – you could spend up to a week making your way from Siem Reap all the way down to the Delta in Vietnam if you wish, and there are plenty of luxury options. Shorter boat trips that we thoroughly recommend in Cambodia include those at Tonle Sap Lake near Siem Reap, dolphin watching in Kratie and the fabulous river route from Battambang and Siem Reap.
Golf is slowly taking off in Cambodia and there are an increasing number of courses to be found around Siem Reap, as well as a couple near Phnom Penh.
