LOW AND HIGH LOW AND HIGH WATER SEASONS

Due to Cambodia's monsoon climate it is not possible to operate the exact same itinerary year round. As a result there are slight alterations on the route taken in Cambodia during high water season - (August to mid November). The tour above is for the low water season (mid November - July). If travelling during the high water season please refer to the itinerary available on the Trip Notes of this itinerary.

You will visit the same places in both seasons however it will only be possible to sail on the Great Tonle Sap lake in the high water season (August to mid November). As a result your disembarkation day will be in Siem Reap on day 9 whereas during the low water season your disembarkation day will be in Kampong Cham also on day 9 which will require a 4.5 hour bus transfer. Snacks are provided for this trip and your arrival into Siem Reap will be in the afternoon.

Prices & Dates

Prices shown are ‘per person’, based on a travelling party of at least 2 adults. The single supplement price needs to be added to the per person price if single rooms/cabins are required. If travelling solo, an additional ‘1-person’ supplement will apply.
