Notes: Between April and August, when water levels are typically at their lowest, we are unable to travel by boat and instead make this journey by mini bus. So that our Intrepid travellers at this time don't miss out on the Tonle Sap experience, we instead include a boat tour of Tonle Sap from Siem Reap.
Day 6 - Siem Reap / Angkor Wat
Day 7 - Siem Reap / Angkor Wat
Day 8 - Sambor Prei Kuk / Homestay
Notes: We stay in the one room in multishare accommodation. Depending on the group size, we may use two homestays that are located close to each other. There will be a thin mattress on the floor, with pillow provided and mosquito net. The bathroom facilities will be shared and will often consist of a squat style toilet and a washing area. The washing area may be a shower or it could be Asia-style with a bucket shower. This is when there will be a large bucket of water with a small scoop that you use to poor water over yourself. Towels will be provided for you to use for washing. For passengers wanting a little more comfort we recommend bringing your own towel and extra pillow.
