Phnom Penh > Kampong Chhang > Pursat > Battambang > Siem Reap
No matter where you travel in Cambodia, the past is always present. History, both ancient and modern, permeates every aspect of Cambodian life. This tour has been specifically tailored to take you from the bustling city of Phnom Penh to the unique cultural heritage in Battambang.
We focus on the area to the west of the majestic Tonle Sap Lake and biosphere and include visits to the iconic buildings in Phnom Penh. Learn about Cambodia’s fascinating history and architecture. River cruising provides you with a unique perspective, with visits to the fishing port of Pursat and stilt villages like Kampong Luong. Learn about regional industries and wander through exotic local markets. The Bamboo Train in Battambang is an unforgettable experience on one of the world’s most unusual railways. Discover caves, mountaintop temples, and incredible beauty in one of Cambodia’s most scenic national parks.
From the glories of the ancient past to the upheavals of recent times, this week-long journey will provide you with a comprehensive introduction to Cambodia's rich and fascinating culture.
1. Although this tour ends in Siem Reap, it does not include an excursion to the magnificent Angkor Wat temples as this tour forms part of a longer 14 day tour. For those who do not wish to undertake the 14-day journey, we recommend you add our 3-day Siem Reap Explorer package at the end of this trip. You’ll then be able to experience everything Siem Reap and the UNESCO World Heritage site at Angkor has to offer.
2. We also recommend you arrive one day early in Phnom Penh and join our Tour of Remembrance that takes in the Killing Fields and Genocide Museum for a full cultural experience of significant historical sites in Cambodia.

Day 1: Phnom Penh/Arrival Day
Phnom Penh – Arrival Day (L)
Our Green Cultural Travel representative will greet you at Phnom Penh International Airport for your complimentary transfer to your hotel. Check in and take some refreshments. The tour officially kicks off with a group briefing by your Group Leader, followed by a welcome lunch of traditional Khmer food at a local restaurant.
We then head to the majestic Royal Palace which also home to the Silver Pagoda. Still the home of the King and Royal Family you will be in awe of the stunning art works, statues and other ancient works of art, We then take in Wat Ounalom which is one of the original Buddhist monasteries and this sprawling complex gives us a great glimpse of daily religious life.
We then board a unique Khmer vehicle to travel from Wat Ounalom to Wat Phnom. Known as a Cyclos (pronounced see-cloe) which are an integral part of the Phnom Penh landscape, Cyclo drivers, however, are among the poorest of the urban poor in Cambodia and so we would love you to give them a tip and see the smile on their face.
Your cylco driver will take you on a ride through the Riverside precinct and you will see many fine examples of French colonial architecture along with the unique shop houses. Take in the Library, Municipal Hall and Post Office. This journey ends at Wat Phnom which is the tallest religious structure in the city and home to beautiful statutes, sculptures and artworks.
To end the day, we head to the bustling riverside tourist precinct and join the locals as they relax and socialize. After, we will choose one of the many rooftop bars along the riverfront to take in the city skyline and river views by night.
Overnight: Phnom Penh
Day 2: Phnom Penh/Pursat
Phnom Penh > Kampong Speu > Kampong Chhang > Pursat (B, L)
After breakfast, we leave Phnom Penh and head towards Kampong Speu. Our first stop is at Kirrirom, one of Cambodia's most beautiful national parks. This park was once Preah Kosamak Town. It has magnificent waterfalls, prolific bird life and is full of tall pine trees and orchid blooms. We have lunch at a small restaurant in the Park, then enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal clear natural rock pools.
We move on to the province of Kampong Chhnang where you can visit traditional pottery communities with many kilns at work. See the local artisan’s and the different aspects of pottery. The landscapes are beautiful and you can even try your hand at creating a jug or pot with the help of a local artist.
Then we continue onto Pursat which sits on the edge of the majestic Tonle Sap Lake and part of the Tonle Sap Biosphere.
Day 3: Pursat/Kampong Chhnang/Battambang
Day 3: Pursat > Battambang (B, L)
Following your breakfast, we will start our journey to Battambang and first we will explore the province of Pursat which is home to a giant floating fishing village and the significant historical site of Neak Ta Khleang Moeang. Then your guide will take you on a local boat trip to visit a series of floating villages on the Tonlé Sap Lake. Floating ice factories, churches, pagodas, service stations and even karaoke bars and police stations are on the water here. From young to old, everybody travels by boat through the network of canals that cross this area.
We then drive through the province of Battambang considered the rice bowl of Cambodia and our journey then continues to the provincial capital. This charming old city also called Battambang is rich in history. Check into your hotel and relax for a while before heading out for an introduction to the town.
Day 4: Battambang
Battambang (B, L)
After breakfast, we head to Wat Ek Phnom, about 10 Km north of Battambang to explore the temple grounds, famous for its carvings. Your guide will share the temple’s history, including the events surrounding the Khmer Rouge regime. The temple, which is surrounded by many old banyan trees provides excellent photo opportunities.
After a picnic lunch we continue on to visit Romcheik 5 Art Space. The gallery and museum are dedicated to Cambodian art and exhibit a beautiful collection from graduates of the Phare Ponleu Selpak visual art school. We then continue to explore Battambang, home to some of the best examples of French colonial architecture in Cambodia.
Our afternoon adventure begins with a drive through the bustling city to the Bamboo Train known as “Nori”. Here we take a remarkable rail journey’s. From O Dambong, 3.7 km east of Battambang’s old French bridge, the train rattles along to O Sra Lav about 7 km away. The journey takes 20 minutes each way with a 20-minute stop at the town of O Sra Lav. After your unique experience on the Bamboo Railway, we visit the Khmer Noodle House Village to observe the production of traditional noodles. We return to the hotel in the late afternoon. You are then free to relax or explore Battambang’s sights and sounds independently.
Day 5: Battambang
Battambang (B, L)
Following breakfast, we start our day with a journey to Banon Temple. The temple is located on the top of a 400m high hill, providing majestic views of the river and surrounding countryside. This mid-11th-century Angkor-era temple consists of five separate structures and has been likened to a smaller Angkor Wat. After exploring the rural countryside, we eat lunch at a local restaurant to enjoy more traditional Khmer food.
In the afternoon we will head off on a scenic journey through traditional villages, rice fields and farms to Sampov Mountain. Your guide will lead you on a hike to the top of the 100-meter-high mountain to explore a pagoda and three natural caves: Pkasla, Lakhaon and Aksopheak. Enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, bask in the tranquillity, and enjoy the cool mountain breezes of beautiful Sampov. As night falls, we witness thousands of nocturnal bats, form massive black clouds, as they take flight from the surrounding caves.
Day 6: Battambang/Siem Reap
Battambang/Siem Reap (B, L D)
Following a leisurely breakfast your guide will escort you to Siem Reap. The province is one of 5 that hcontains the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve. If the level of the Tonle Sap is not enough for transportation by boat during the dry-season (from February to October) we will travel by private vehicle.
By road we will take time to visit Banteay Chhmar Temples. A notable feature of this temple (currently been considered for UNESCO World Heritage Site status) is the magnificent bas reliefs on the outside of the inner sanctuary walls. Almost every step within this vast ruin gives another fabulous picture of stone being consumed by nature. It is a spectacular sight with its Bayon Style towers, walls, and enclosures cloaked with vegetation.
If guests travel by boat on the magnificent Tonle Sap Lake (usually from November to January), you will witness the life-style of the Cambodian people living on the banks and the traditional fishing methods they employ and have done for generations.
After time to settle in your guide will take you to explore the town including its markets and the must see Artisan D’ Angkor, a school of Fine Art. You will then have time to enjoy the hotel facilities before we head out for the entertainment and market precinct of Siem Reap known as Pub Street. Take in the sights and sounds as the locals go about their daily activities, then try a foot massage by thousands of tiny fish at one of many establishments offering this toe-tickling experience. We will enjoy a farewell dinner in the bustling “pub streets’ of Siem Reap.
Overnight: Siem Reap

Siem Reap/Departure Day (B)
We will enjoy a final group breakfast and then you will be free to head out or relax at the hotel or continue to explore this unique city before we transfer you to either the airport for your departure flight or onto your next Cambodian adventure.

The information in this detailed trip document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However, it is subject to change and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal to the itinerary. Or, it may be a larger change that results in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure, you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary.
VERY IMPORTANT: To check if there have been changes that affect your plans, please ensure that you print and review a final copy of your Trip Details several days before you commence travel.
While it is our intention to adhere to the route described, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary. On occasion it may be necessary, or desirable, to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. The Trip Details document is a general guide to the tour and region. Mention of specific wildlife is by no means a guarantee you will encounter it. Listed travel times are approximations only and subject to variation due to local conditions.
The Cambodian people are very modest, so avoid wearing clothes that are too short or revealing in public.
Ask permission before taking someone’s photo.
In some major cities in Cambodia, many hotel rooms do not have windows.
Due to the nature of travel in Asia, a backpack is more suited to this trip than a suitcase.

our Leader Description
All Green Cultural Travel Group Tours are accompanied by one of our Tour Leaders. The role of the Tour Leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to see and do, recommend great local eating venues, and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting. We believe this approach provides the best of both worlds.
Group Size Notes
Eating is one of the most enjoyable aspects of holidaying in a foreign destination. When travelling with Green Cultural Travel, you will experience a vast array of excellent food available throughout Cambodia. We believe in providing choice and have therefore included some meals within each Tour, but also provide opportunities for you to explore and discover dining experiences on your own.
Our groups tend to eat together to enable everyone to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. However, there is no obligation to join in if you prefer not to. If you wish to venture out alone, your Tour Leader can always provide suggestions for recommended restaurants in the area.
Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods, although in some areas the choice may be limited.
While trekking in remote regions all meals are included. We ensure they are plentiful and made of fresh local ingredients.Please refer to your trip details for information on which meals are included, along with a suggested budget for those that are not.
Private bus with air-conditioning, walking, boat and ferry
There are no flights on this tour
We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel. Our group trips are therefore designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers are paired with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip and stay in a twin room or multi-share accommodation.
Hotels 4 Star where available - 6 nights
My Own Room
Please note that if you have booked the "My Own Room" option for this tour, you will be provided with a single private room each night.
For details of your joining hotel, please refer to your Green Cultural Travel tour voucher. Alternatively, contact the Green Cultural Travel office or your travel agent.
When arriving at Phnom Penh International Airport, you will be met by a Green Cultural Travel representative and transferred to your hotel. Your driver will be waiting for you with a Green Cultural Travel sign with your name on it. Please check carefully for your name when you exit the baggage hall as it can be busy outside the arrival area.
If you are unable to locate our Green Cultural Travel representative on arrival, please wait up to 30 minutes. Unavoidable delays occasionally happen, and our representative should be there as soon as possible.
If they have still not arrived you can:
- call our emergency number to contact local staff for assistance, or
- take a taxi to the joining point hotel, and we will reimburse you for the cost of this inconvenience.
We don't expect any problems, and nor should you. However, if you are unable to commence your trip as scheduled for any reason, please contact your starting point hotel as soon as possible. Request to speak to your Group Leader, or leave a message. If you are unable to get in touch with your Group Leader, please refer to our emergency contact details.

What to Take
What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit during your entire vacation. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible. Most travellers carry a small to medium size backpack or rolling bag. No XXL ones, please! You will also need a day pack or bag to carry water, cameras and other electronics like iPods and mobile phones.
Passport (with photocopies)
Travel insurance (with photocopies)
Airline tickets (with photocopies)
USD cash (small denominations preferred)
Credit or debit card (see personal spending money)
Green Cultural Travel vouchers, pre-departure information and dossier
Any entry visas, additional passport photos or vaccination certificates required
Small towel and swim wear
Sturdy walking shoes/sport sandals
Cover for backpack or plastic bags to keep clothes dry
Clothes for temples – long pants or sarongs
Some of our hotels offer laundry facilities for a charge.
Please note that visas for entry into Cambodia are the responsibility of each individual traveller. The visa requirements for your trip will vary depending on where you are from, and where you are going. Rules do change. For the most up-to-date information, please check your government’s foreign ministry website or contact your travel agent.
CAMBODIA - Visas can be obtained in advance from your local Cambodian Embassy or Consulate OR on arrival for $30 USD. Please bring at least two passport photos.
You will require two clean pages (minimum) in your passport and at least six months validity.
Every traveller is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others, while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs. Consider your likely spending habits when budgeting for drinks, shopping and tipping.
We have provided some specific recommendations below to assist you to plan your budget and manage your money while on tour.
During this tour, you will use both the Cambodian Riel and US Dollar as local currencies. Because currency exchange rates in South East Asia do fluctuate quite frequently, we ask that you refer to the following website for the most up to date information on exchange rates: www.xe.com
The best way to access local currency in Cambodia is from an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) with a debit card. ATMs are readily available throughout South East Asia and will usually accept cards from both the Visa and MasterCard international networks. If possible, travel with both a Visa and a MasterCard to provide backup in case of loss or access problems with one card. Please note, your bank will usually charge a fee for overseas withdrawals.
USD Cash is recommended for those occasions when ATMs are not accessible. You should bring some cash with you for emergency situations (please refer to our trip dossier) but not a substantial amount as carrying only cash is high risk. The ideal mix is two or more ATM card/s with some cash as back-up.
If you are bringing US Dollars, please make sure that the notes are new and in good condition. Notes older than 2003, or with any tears or blemishes may not be accepted. Be fussy with your bank when buying cash!
Credit cards are accepted at some upmarket hotels and restaurants, and some larger stores if shopping for big items. They are of no use at smaller establishments. Cash advances with your credit card are also possible at some banks. However, the process is time-consuming and tends to attract high fees.
Traveller’s cheques can be tricky, time-consuming and expensive to exchange. While we do not recommend that you bring them as your primary source of funds, you may choose to bring one or two cheques in case of emergency. Thomas Cook or American Express travelers’ cheques in US currency are the easiest to exchange.
Please ensure you have access to an additional USD $250 (or equivalent) as a minimum. This 'emergency' fund is for use if circumstances beyond our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!
Departure Tax is included in all International and Domestic tickets.
Depending on the service, it is customary in Asia to tip service providers, such as waiters, approximately 10%. Though not compulsory, tipping is expected and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your tour. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip where there is an opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers we use. You may do this individually, or your Group Leader will offer to collect the money and tip as a group. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides range from $1.5-$3.5 USD per person, per day, depending on the quality and length of the service. If unsure, ask your Group Leader for a recommended amount based on the particular circumstances at the time.
At the end of each trip, if you felt your Green Cultural Travel Group Leader did an outstanding job, tipping is appreciated. The amount is entirely a personal decision. However, as a guideline $20-25 USD per person, per week, can be used.
Please note inoculations may be required for the country visited. It is your responsibility to consult with your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information well before departure. We recommend that you carry a small First Aid kit, hand sanitizers or antibacterial wipes, and any personal medical supplies you might require.
Please be aware that sometimes we are in remote areas and away from medical facilities. For legal reasons, our Group Leaders are prohibited from administering any drug including headache tablets, antibiotics, etc. In Asia, pharmacies tend to stock the same western drugs available in your home country, but they are usually locally produced and may have different names. To ensure you can access to the right treatment, ask your doctor for the details of the active components and dosage instructions if you think you might need to purchase prescription medication while here.
When selecting your trip, please read the brochure and itinerary carefully to assess your ability to cope with our style of travel. Green Cultural Travel reserves the right to exclude any traveller from all, or part, of a trip without refund if, in the reasonable opinion of our Group Leader, they are unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group.
Safety and Security
Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure.
We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt for keeping your passport, air tickets, travellers’ cheques, cash, and other valuable items safe. Leave your expensive jewellery at home. You won't need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables while on tour. We recommend a lock for securing your luggage.
When travelling on a group trip, please note that your Group Leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns.
Your Group Leader will accompany you on all included activities.
During your journey, you will have some free time to pursue your own interests. You can relax and take it easy or explore at your leisure. While your Group Leader can assist you with options available in a given location, please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of your itinerary. We, therefore, offer no representations about the safety of the activity or the standard of the operators running them. Please use your personal judgment before selecting an activity in your free time.
Although the locations we visit on tour are generally safe during the day, there can be risks to wandering about at night. We recommend our guests stay in small groups and take taxis for any night time excursions, including restaurant visits.
Protests and Demonstrations- Protests and demonstrations, even those that are well intended, have the potential to turn violent with no warning. Counter protests can also turn violent. Action by security forces to disperse demonstrators and protesters may occur at any time. If you are in an area where demonstrators or protesters are gathering, avoid the temptation of staying for a photo opportunity and leave the area immediately.
Water based activities have an element of danger and excitement built into them. We recommend only participating in water based activities when accompanied by a guide(s). We make every reasonable effort to ensure the fun, and adventurous element of any water based activities (in countries with varying degrees of operating standards) have a balanced approach to safety. It is our policy not to allow our Group Leaders to make arrangements on your behalf for water based activities that are not accompanied by a guide(s).
Swimming, including snorkelling, is always at your own risk.
Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. As a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their personal luggage. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. These requirements ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to complete their chosen trip comfortably. While our Group Leaders work hard to ensure all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information.
A Couple of Rules
We do not tolerate illegal drugs on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of the local culture in some areas of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers.
Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter and in particular, the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our Group Leaders have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
A Word of Warning
When exploring on your own carry only the necessary minimum with you and use a well-hidden money belt for cash and credit cards. The majority of your valuables, including your passport, should be left in the hotel safe. You can organise use of the safe at the reception of your accommodation. There is no need to get paranoid, just be cautious.
Please do not buy gems in Cambodia unless you know what you are doing. Even if they are genuine, you should not expect to be able to sell them at home. If you fall victim to a gem scam, we are unable to assist you.
Travel Insurance: Travel insurance is compulsory to participate in any of our trips. When travelling on a group trip, you will not be permitted to join the tour until evidence of travel insurance has been sighted by your Group Leader, who will take note of your insurance details. When selecting a travel insurance policy, please bear in mind that all clients must have medical coverage and that we require a minimum coverage of USD 200,000 for repatriation and emergency rescue. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability,
cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. If you have credit card insurance, we require proof of purchase of the trip (a receipt of credit card statement) with a credit card in your name. Contact your bank for details of their participating insurer, the level of coverage, and emergency contact telephone number.
