Day 1. Phnom Penh - Tonle Bati Temple - Kep (-/-/-)
In the morning transfer from your Phnom Penh hotel or from Phnom Penh airport to Kep. Kep used to be the main beach retreat for the French and Khmer elite between the 1920’s and 60’s. The town quickly fell in despair after the Khmer Rouge took power in the mid 1970’s and it was only until very recently that Kep started to attract investors and tourists again, making it a quiet and very peaceful retreat for people seeking a haven away from the crowds. On the way to Kep visit a small but beautiful Angkorian style temple named Tonle Bati. The temple grounds are well taken care of and colourful flowers around the temple give the place a real attractive sight. Continue the transfer to Kep where in the early afternoon you check into your hotel.
Day 2. Island Hopping Adventure (B/L/-)
Enjoy discovering the lesser known islands around Kep, home to some of Cambodia’s best kept secret locations. Explore uninhabited islands and observe daily life in local fishing communities dotted along the islands.
Stop at a deserted beach for a snorkel around the island and explore the fragile marine eco-system around the islands. After a well-deserved rest and a snack, indulge in some tasty sparkling wine, before continuing on your island hopping discovery, and returning to the mainland early afternoon.
Day 3. Day at Leisure in Kep (B/-/-)
Enjoy a day at leisure in Kep.
Day 4. Kep - Kampot - Bokor - Sihanoukville (B/L/-)
In the morning depart for Kampot. This laidback provincial capital is a perfect place to absorb the real local life style and take in the beauty of the country. Kampot is famous for its colonial style buildings, the relaxing atmosphere and the beautiful riverside that provides a stunning view of the Elephant Mountains. Visit Kampot town and step into a small local boat to explore the palm fringed canals along the foot of the Elephant Mountains. Pass by local homes and take in the real rural scene. Return to shore and continue afterwards to Bokor Hill. This plateau is located on top of the Elephant Mountain Range and provides a stunning view over the Gulf of Thailand. The French colonial rulers build their own retreat on the plateau with villas, a church and a casino. The Casino these days has been renovated and is back in business where the church, retreat villas and other structures remain untouched, standing mysteriously on the plateau overlooking the forest and sea below. A lunch box is served on the plateau. Continue later in the afternoon the transfer to Sihanoukville where you arrive in the early evening with the rest of the evening at leisure.
Day 5-6. Sihanoukville (B/-/-)
Days at leisure.
Day 7. Sihanoukville - Phnom Penh (B/-/-)
Transfer to the airport of Phnom Penh (5-6 hours) to board your flight to your next destination.

Projects you support while traveling this program:
A local family: As part of our commitment to help the local community, we always pay a small contribution when we visit a local home, have a lunch at a family’s home or when the family allows us to make use of any service or equipment they are able to offer us.
The Pagoda: A Pagoda is a community institution. If you had lunch on the grounds of a pagoda, or visited a pagoda and met with a local monk, we donate to that pagoda. The Pagoda usually uses the money for development of its grounds, which benefits the entire community they are located in as everyone is allowed to make use of the pagoda, its facilities and its guidance.
Kok Dong Community School: Even if you haven’t visited the Kok Dong Community School, we still support the school with materials, computers, and donations and any other materials and advice needed for the school to continue to develop the young minds of Cambodia.
