We had a brilliant day out on this tour to Phnom Tamao. Our tour guide Vanthana was friendly and chatty and very well informed about all the animals. One of the best days we had in Cambodia.

You can't help leaving this tour without a big smile on your face. Lots of people complain that the rescue park is too big and hard to find your way around, so I highly encourage getting a tour and this one takes the cake. The...More

We had an excellent almost full day trip with very kind and honest hosts, one of whom has lived in Cambodia for a long time (the other native Cambodian) and they are also in a close relationship with the rescued animals. This means that they...More

Don’t be fooled!! This tour is not actually what they sell you in the website!! It is a trip to the Zoo, with some monkeys and an elephant living around. Animals are in small cages and seem pretty sad, it doesn’t look like a rescue...More

7 nights in Cambodia (6 Replies)
Hi Hubby and I are going to Phuket for 7 nights next year and have decided to add on 7 nights in Cambodia. We are considering 3 nights in Siem Reap and 3 nights in Phnom Phen and I have just found an overnight tour with Betelnut Tours to the countryside. Is this feasible and enough time in each place? We will fly direct from Phuket to Siem Reap return, so also looking at best way to get from SR to PP? All answers will be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Split your time 4/2 ... much more to see in SR SR > PP options - bus $10-15/head, private car around $60, fly $20/each upwards depending on when exactly you are travelling and how soon you book your tickets (normal routine for airfares) You can do tours out of both SR & PP to get into 'the countryside
