Phnom Penh To Siem Reap
Water travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap has always been difficult due to the ever changing water levels on the Tonle Sap Lake, even in the wet season when the water levels are high enough you have other issues, such as storms on the lake that can make the crossing treacherous. Also the sheer boredom of crossing the lake as there is nothing to see apart from vast swathes of water.
We have overcome these issues by using our luxury special designed double hulled cruiser, the Mekong Tara Prince (once owned by the Prince of Cambodia) to cruise up the beautiful Tonle Sap River to Prek Kdam or the Mekong river to Roka Kaong (depending on weather conditions). Once there we transfer to our luxury private air conditioned Lexus/minivan to travel around the Lake to Siem Reap.
This way you get to see the awesome river and rural life on the river together with rural life on land. The best of both worlds without the boredom.
Guests are picked up from their Hotels or Guesthouses in Phnom Penh at 7am before being transferred to the Mekong Tara Prince in Phnom Penh dock. Upon arrival at the Mekong Tara Prince guests will be welcomed with a free drink by our cruise manager.
Lunch will be served on board, consisting of a BBQ and free drinks, as we cruise along the river North towards Siem Reap approx. 4.5 Hrs. Seeing life along the river is an amazing experience and our special vessel has a unique double hull which allows us to travel closer to the riverbanks and also explore the narrow waterways on route.
On arrival at Prek Kdam or Roka Kaong (depending on weather conditions) guests will be met by our private air conditioned minivan and transferred to Siem Reap approx 3.5 Hrs, taking in the stunning scenery as we drive through pristine Cambodian countryside and through traditional rural villages.
Arrival at Siem Reap at approx 4:30pm and free transfer to your Hotel or Guesthouse.
