Backpacker’s Getaway

If you are not into large scale tourism but enjoy backpacking to get a better view of the country, then there are plenty of places to visit in your Cambodia tour. For instance, the small town of Kratie is one of the best places for backpackers who wish to see the beauty of the central marketplace. It is also bordered by French colonial buildings that have been in the area for many years.

These dolphins are slowly becoming endangered. In fact, there are about 66 and 86 remaining dolphins in the upper area of the Mekong River.
Other than the Kratie, you may also add the Tonlé Sap to your Cambodia tours. The lake is known as the largest freshwater lake in the entire South East Asia and it dramatically shrinks and expands depending on the season of the year. The lake drains to Phnom Penh and Mekong River cruises during November to May. During the month of June, heavy rains pour water on the area resulting to the formation of an enormous lake.
