Kep, Kampot and Takeo

3-day tour including quaint colonial Kampot, the picturesque seaside town of Kep and the rarely-visited Angkor temples of Takeo Province

Discover Cambodia's less visited parts

Seen Angkor Wat and Bayon’s mysterious faces, visited the tragic Killing Fields site, shopped in the Russian Market and had a sun-downer at the famous FCC?  Well here’s an opportunity to discover some lesser known parts of the Kingdom with this fully-escorted, fascinating 3-day tour of Southern Cambodia’s Kep, Kampot and Takeo Provinces.

Discover the excellent Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, run by Wildlife Alliance in conjunction with Free The Bears.  The forested Centre is a refuge for numerous species of animals, local and exotic, that have been rescued from hunters, liberated from private zoos, or that were destined for the wildlife trade.  An interesting and worthwhile visit.

We’ll also include the spectacular yet rarely visited  Angkor period temples of mountain-top Phnom Chisor and well-preserved Ta Prom; take a boat trip to unspoilt “Rabbit Island” or visit one of Kampot’s world-famous pepper plantations and check-out the town’s old French period architecture. Last but not least, sample the superb Kep Crap in Kampot Pepper sauce at the tiny coastal town’s picturesque Crab Market.

This 3-day extension is suitable for any tour finishing in Phnom Penh and while an extra night’s accommodation in the capital can be provided on the 3rd day if required, we can also drop you directly at the international airport on our return from Kep should it be more convenient.

The price of £250 is a per person rate based on two sharing.  For one person the extension is £430.  For more people, do ask.
