The Ratanakiri

Siem Reap International Travel proposes you the discovery of other regions and other places of Cambodia with programs tailored to each destination.

Most of the regions are now completely accessible, secured and open to tourists but as the local infrastructures, in term of Tourist Office, local guides, detailed maps… are still very poor outside of Phnom Penh and Angkor, the departure routes will be from one of these towns, accompanied by a guide familiar with the area visited.

For all the reasons stated above, it is difficult for us to propose standard tariffs fitted to each destination. So, thank you to inquire for a personalized study of your request.

We propose the discovery of the Ratanakiri, northeastern region of Cambodia, where different ethnics live. The tours mainly apply to trekkers and are only available during the dry season. They are feasible departing either from Phnom Penh or Siem Reap.

Be aware that since 2007 there is no air connection to Banlung, the main town of that region. The only way to reach that town is the former trail from Kratie. That trail has become an asphalted road and it is possible to reach Banlung to Phnom Penh during the day. But we recommend a stop at Kratie, which is half way (254kms to Banlung and 340kms to Phnom Penh), to visit the town and the last freshwater Irrawadi dolphins.

The tours below are provided only with services in Banlung; for transfers from / to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap, we will indicate the best solution to get there according to the local circumstances. An overnight at Stung Treng is advisable.

These excursions may be added to our programs Angkor Classic or Phnom Penh – Angkor.
