Be tempted by a Cambodia expedition cruise
Cambodia, of course, are the famous temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, its bubbling capital Phnom Penh, its sandy beaches in Sihanoukville, or the quaint art deco atmosphere of Kep. But Cambodia, especially have wonderful human encounters and inaccessible discoveries along its rivers Mekong and Tonle Sap.
Indeed, along its great rivers lives the soul of Cambodia, protected from the evolutions of the modern world, in all its authenticity and closer to the wilderness.
With our Cambodia expedition cruise, it is this exceptional discovery, accompanied by an adventure flavour, that you propose Phocea Mekong cruises aboard the Sat Toung.
Cruise temples of Angkor
Due to its small size and shallow draft, the Sat Toung is the only vessel able to sail 6 or 7 months a year on the Tonle Sap by making the complete journey from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (temples of Angkor). This cruise is offered from August until the end of February. Depending on the water level during the last month (February), the trip can be made by fast community boat.
Mekong Cruise – Chhlong Relay
Phocea Mekong cruises and its boats “Marie Deauville” and “Sat Toung” take you all year to meet the hidden wonders of the Mekong. Our exclusive partnership with the “Le Relais de Chhlong” former residence of the provincial governor built in 1916 overlooking the majestic Mekong River flowing at its feet, offers you the opportunity to go up the peaceful course of the Mekong to the limit of navigation of the river after Kratie. You can sail to admire the Irrawaddy dolphins (Mekong dolphins), or beautiful islands in the riverbed, forgotten villages or sacred pagodas.
