About Our 3 Week Route Through Cambodia

Do We Wish We Would Have Done Anything Different? Yes and No.

If you’re able to stay longer, DO IT

We caught the beginning of Cambodia’s rainy season, so due to bad weather we had to cut our time on the islands short. If the weather is better for you, skip Otres Beach 2 all together and stay two extra nights on the Cambodian islands.

The route would look like this then…

  • Day 9 – 12: Koh Rong Sanloem / Koh Rong
  • Day 13: Koh Rong Sanloem to Sihanoukville to Battambang (night bus)

Even though we had to make adjustments to our original plan, we believe our 20-day route was perfect for us. Regardless how long or what route you take in Cambodia, you’re in for an amazing time. Cambodia is truly a gem and it’s people will leave your heart smiling.

  1. The Angkor Wat temple complex is one of the largest man-made structures in the world, situated in Cambodia.

    I wish there were more pictures of the temple complex – it is a great place to see and wonder about.

    Three weeks in Cambodia? I would’ve stayed three days, unless the places I planned to see were days away from my hotel room.

    Were there elephant rides? – I hear they have them there – it could get quite exciting since they let you trek on 100+m journeys on elephants in some areas.

    1. While any amount of time spent in Cambodia is great, we say stay way longer than 3 days! It is such a big, beautiful, wonderful country that has so much more to offer than just Angkor Archaeological Park. If you’d like to see more pictures of that complex, please visit our blog on “Tips for Planning Your Visit to Angkor Wat”, “What Temples to See at Angkor Archaeological Park” and “6 tips for seeing Angkor Wat’s Sumrise” We have those posts packed with pictures and helpful tips.

      As for elephant rides, we don’t support riding elephants so we are unsure about those parks in Cambodia. We spent time at a Elephant Sanctuary in Chiang Mai Thailand were we spent a wonderful day with those gentle giants. We have a whole post about our day with the elephants in our advocacy section of our site.

      Thanks for the comment!
