Cambodia - Activities
Take a river cruise along the Tonle Sap from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. It's a great way to laze through Cambodia's wetlands.
Ride an Elephant
Go for an elephant ride in Rattanakiri and Mondulkiri, remember to grab a tour guide.
Be a part of the extravagant Water Festival. Taking place in October/November, it is around this time that the Tonle Sap changes direction, leaving behind an abundance of fish. Crowds mingle on the river banks in Phnom Penh to watch hundreds of brightly coloured boats and their paddlers battle it out for top honours.
Cambodian Apsara dance
Watch a traditional Cambodian Apsara dance. Siem Reap is probably the best place to watch a dance display, although travellers can occasionally catch a spontaneous one in the villages.
Dolphin sightseeing in Cambodia
Viewing Cambodia's fresh water dolphins is immensely rewarding. The best time to go is early morning or late afternoon.
Swim in volcanic Yak Lom lake
Near Banlung town in Rattanakiri province. The water is clear and cool and the surrounding forest is ideal for a picnic.
Fire a Rocket Launcher
Fire a rocket launcher or M-16 in Phnom Penh. This type of activity is not available in many places in the world that would let you near such lethal weaponary.
