The tour starts and ends in Phnom Penh. All tours to the south of Cambodia, to learn from very ancient temples and history in Angkor Borei to the untouched Rabbit Island, as much as the national park of Phnom Bokor.

Day 1: Phnom Penh – Phnom Chiso – Phnom Da – Ta Keo

Start early today for the nearly 3-hour drive to Ta Keo where the first capital city of Cambodia was in the 1st century. Leave the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh behind as you head south to Tonle Bati. Tonle Bati is a place of worship and features two ancient temples, Ta Prohm and Yeay Peov, and a pagoda, Wat Tonle Bati, which was built in 1576. Then we continue to visit Phnom Chiso, this mountain temple was built in the early 11th century by King Suryavarman I (AD 1002-1050), who practiced Brahmanism Constructed of sandstone and other stones, it is 60 meters long and 50 meters wide and sits atop a mountain. The temple is surrounded by two galleries. The first gallery is 60 meters long on each side. The second, smaller gallery is in the middle, where there is the main worship place with two doors and a wooden statue. There are beautiful sculptures on the lintel and the pillars.
Drive to Ta Keo, embark on the speedboat, and ride to Angkor Borei where the first capital city of Cambodia was, and have an organic lunch from the local restaurants that are run by the villagers. Visit the Angkor Borie Museum before we head out to visit Phnom Da. Phnom Da temple was built on the top of a small hill in the 6th century by King Rutravarman, who reigned during the Norkor Phnom period

Return to the hotel for check-out and we ride the boat to visit Rabbit Island (Koh Tonsay). Koh Tonsay is located about 4.5 kilometers southeast of Kep. Tourists are drawn to the two beautiful white sand beaches. The sea here is shallow and has a long slope, making Tonsay excellent for swimming. At the sea bottom are a variety of corals, sea animals, and plants that attract researchers and ecologists. We get relaxation on the beach, and our guide will prepare great picnic seafood for you with nice and cold drinks.
After lunch, we ride the boat back to the mainland and drive to Kampong, en route we visit the ancient cave called Phnom Chhngok Cave.

Check out from the lodge and drive up to the top of Phnom Bokor National Park. The mountain is 1,075 meters high and the temperature at the top is often quite cool. We will find a lush forest, large rocks shaped like animals, and sailing junks, as well as a spectacular panoramic view of the Kampot countryside, of Sihanoukville, and of the bright, blue sea.
On the top of the mountain, we will visit the Povokvil Waterfalls and the Black Palace, which was the former summer palace of King Sihanouk. The national park is also home to a 29-meter-high statue of Lok Yeay Mao, a mythical heroine from Cambodian Buddhism who protects travelers. There’s also a Catholic church that dates back to French colonialists in the 1920s, which is an unusual sight in Cambodia and particularly in the middle of a mountain range.
