3 Days Self Drive jeep tour: Siem Reap to Phnom Penh
There are several options for travelling from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. This 3-day self-drive jeep tour is probably the most adventurous alternative .
Day 1: Siem Reap – Kampong Thom
We leave Siem Reap town with our vintage jeep and set out to the beautiful countryside . It is going to be a nice and peaceful ride which is flat all throughout. We will stop by the local fish market on the way where you can observe traditional Khmer fish trade, a daily event. After cycling, we take a small break for some cool refreshment before continuing on to the next part of the trip. We then resume our journey with the visit of one of the most impressive floating villages in Cambodia, Kampong Kleang.
When we arrive at the village, we will board a boat and head out in exploration of the floating village. At lunch time, we will take you to a stilt house in the village to share a typical Khmer lunch with very friendly locals. In the afternoon we continue our way to Kampong Thom. We will have a stop in Kampong Kdei and you visit an ancient Angkor bridge. In the late afternoon you will check in your hotel.
Day 2: Kampong Thom – Kampong Cham
After a scenic drive through small villages and ricefields you will arrive in Sambor Prei Kuk. This temple complex is also an Unesco World Heritage site. Together with your guide, you will visit the three main temples. Ride the narrow pathways through the forest and discover a temple, completely overgrown, around every corner. Time to continue our jeep tour. We drive our jeeps through some beautiful Cambodian countryside.
We will stop at to see some truly impressive carvings. From huge stone blocks, sometimes as big as 8 meters, the stone mason chisels and carves some extremely impressive sculptures. The sheer amount of detail involved in some of his work is exceptional and you will have ample time to admire his work. We will continue our scenic drive to our next stop is at a local rubber plantation. You will check in Hancy Bamboo resort, overlooking the Mighty Mekong river.
Day 3: Kampong Cham – Phnom Penh
Leaving Hancey Bamboo resort after breakfast.
Your final day on the self-drive jeep tour promises a scenic farewell along the mighty Mekong River. Wind through verdant Cambodian countryside, the sun glinting off the water as you trace the river’s path. In Kampong Cham, a unique treat awaits: a traditional bamboo bridge. While your jeeps may rest for the moment, your feet can take center stage for a stroll across this remarkable feat of local ingenuity.
Leaving the town behind, immerse yourself in the tapestry of rural life. Lush rice paddies unfurl as far as the eye can see, punctuated by the serene presence of a pagoda. Here, time seems to gently bend, with an old French colonial building standing as a testament to the region’s rich history.
As Phnom Penh draws near, bid farewell to the Mekong one last time with a ferry ride across its broad expanse. Stepping onto the opposite bank, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the bustling Cambodian capital. From here, it’s a short hop to your hotel, where you can unwind and reflect on the unforgettable memories woven into your jeep tour adventure.
The last stretch to Phnom Penh is via Highway 4. In the afternoon, you arrive in the capital where you say goodbye to your guide and support team. Being able to drive a jeep through Cambodia for 3 days is quite an experience and an adventure to remember.
