Your day-by-day itinerary

Two local women walking on the road

Days 1-2


First, you’ll travel into the remote hills of the Ratanakiri province, a region that is only just beginning to attract adventurous and responsible travellers. Arriving in Banlung, you can get settled in your cosy and inviting lodge. The people here are renowned for their gentle kindness and you’ll see why as soon as you set foot in the door.

On Day 2, you’ll set off with a local guide to visit some of the minority tribes that live in the small mountain villages surrounding Banlung. The Tampuan people are full of warmth and their culture is packed with fascinating rituals. Here, you’ll see the unique carved totem poles that they use to honour their dead. You can play football with the local kids and take a look inside the traditional houses.

“Cambodia is full of history and beauty, from Angkor Wat to the Cardamom Mountains. You can easily explore in one week or combine with neighbouring Vietnam. I often suggest Cambodia for families as it’s easy to travel around.”
