One-Way Cruise & Road from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap( $ 139 per person)(Children 10 years and under are half priced)5yo and under free
This is the reason i wake up excited,we Cruise both ways Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and Siem Reap to Phnom Penh Daily. Travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap has always been difficult due to the ever-changing water levels on the Tonle Sap Lake, even in the wet season when the water levels are high enough you have other issues, low lying bridges,making the riverboats unable to pass, storms on the lake that can make the crossing treacherous. fishing nets and water hyacinth are also issues, the sheer boredom of crossing the lake as there is nothing to see apart from vast swathes of water.Not anymore.
We have overcome these issues by using our luxury special designed double hulled cruisers, the Mekong Tara Prince (once owned by the Prince of Cambodia)or our Mekong Explorer or our tonle sap explorer to cruise up the beautiful Tonle Sap River to Koh Chen Island or the Mekong River to Roka Kaong (depending on weather conditions).(all our vessels used for this trip are safe and clean, captained by experienced licensed operators), Once there we transfer to our luxury private air-conditioned Lexus/minivan or SUV to travel around the Lake to Siem Reap.
This way you get to see the awesome river and rural life on the river together with rural life on land. The best of both worlds without the boredom.
Children waving from the riverbanks, buffalo cooling off in the Mekong River, large, rare waterbirds, floating homes and villages and much much more,
Guests are picked up from their hotels or Guesthouses in Phnom Penh by 7.30am by our very experienced river and lake guides before being transferred to our riverboats in Phnom Penh dock. Upon arrival at our riverboat guests will be welcomed with a free drink by our cruise guides.

Seeing life along the river is an amazing experience and our special vessel has a unique double hull which allows us to travel closer to the riverbanks and also explore the narrow waterways on route. Our boats will be passing the floating villages and also there will be a stop to a river village along the river, so as to experience life there, we also visit the famous silversmiths workshop on Koh Chen Island,for a first hand encounter with Artisans producing magnificent khmer silver-ware favored by the Khmer Royal Family,where fine hand made jewellery is created and available for purchase.if in market to buy unique high quality jewellery at wholesale prices,this is the place,the best silversmiths in Cambodia produce here.
