This morning, your Cambodia travel guide and driver will come to pick up you at hotel at 8:00AM – 8:30AM then provide a long drive (approximately 9 hours) to Mondulkiri. From your hotel, we depart Phnom Penh and travel northeast to our first stop at the spider town of Skuon
. This town is 55km north of Phnom Penh and is well known for eating habit of the residents: they hunt and eat spiders.
After that, continue our drive to Kampong Cham
, the third largest city in Cambodia. During dry season (January to June), we can visit the Kampong Cham’s iconic bamboo bridge
. Each year, Kampong Cham residents construct a temporary bamboo bridge to connect Kampong Cham town to Koh Paen Island
. Have your lunch at a local restaurant (at your own account).
Our road journey continues on the east bank of the Mekong River, passing along many rubber and pepper plantations
. Stop along the way to witness rubber collecting and pepper plantation.
Arrive at Snoul Village
, the gateway to the wilds of Mondulkiri highland. From the village, we head northeast towards the Sen Monorom
, the quite provincial capital city of Mondulkiri, passing through patches of lush forest and areas of cultivation and plantations. If we are lucky, we might see wild monkeys who are living in forest along the way.
On arrival in Sen Monorom in the late afternoon, check in at your hotel and free at leisure.
Overnight in Sen Monorom.
