This morning, you will be met by your Cambodia travel guide and driver at hotel at 8:00AM – 8:30AM then provided with a long drive (approx. 9 hours) to Mondulkiri. From your hotel, depart Phnom Penh and travel northeast to our first stop: the spider town of SKUON
. Located 55km north of Phnom Penh, this town is well known for eating habit of the residents: they hunt and eat spiders.
After that, continue KAMPONG CHAM
, the third largest city in Cambodia. During dry season (January to June), you can visit the iconic bamboo bridge here. Each year, Kampong Cham residents construct a temporary bamboo bridge to connect Kampong Cham town to Koh Paen Island. Have lunch at a local restaurant (at your own account).
Continue 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, 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 you are lucky, you might see wild monkeys who live in forest along the way. On arrival in the destination in the late afternoon, check in at your hotel and free at leisure.
Overnight in Sen Monorom.
