Itinerary


Day 1 (November): Arrive Phnom Penh

You will arrive at Phnom Penh International Airport where you will be met by our qualified local guide and transferred to the Imperial Garden Villa & Hotel, which is located close to Phnom Penh's main attractions and is approximately a 30 min drive from the airport. After checking in and freshening up you will be driven to the classic Foreign Correspondence Club (FCC) where you will enjoy a welcome dinner.

Day 2 (November): Phnom Penh Water Festival
The boat races do not truly get under away until early afternoon, so after breakfast at the hotel you will be taken on a city tour to get an initial taste of charming Phnom Penh. You will firstly be taken to the Royal Palace, located on the shores of the Mekong. Inside its walls are the Throne Hall, the Chan Chaya Pavilion, used for performances of classical dance, the Napoleon III Pavilion, and the King and Queen's residential quarters. Next stop will be the Silver Pagoda, so named as its floor is made up 5,000 silver tiles! The Silver Pagoda is also known as the Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha as it houses a glittering array of Buddhist statues, the centre piece being a magnificent 17th century emerald Buddha statue made of baccarat crystal. The walls of the pagoda are lavishly decorated with colourful frescos depicting episodes from the Khmer version of the Ramayana. Next on the schedule is a visit to the 1917, terracotta red, National Museum - home to the world’s leading collection of Khmer sculpture. The museum offers a charming setting for the comprehensive collection of Khmer art. Predominantly worked in stone, the sculptures date from both the Angkorian and pre-Angkorian eras, complimented by more recent examples of Cambodian art. You will then be taken for lunch at a local restaurant.  

In the afternoon your guide will lead you to the riverside where you will mingle with the thousands of locals who have traveled from all over Cambodia to enjoy the 3 days of merriment – here you will get your first glimpses of the wonderful boats, and see then in action as human power speeds them down the river. After an exciting afternoons race watching you will certainly have built up an appetite. Dinner is your choice, you may decide to remain on the riverside as night falls, joining the locals eating from the many food stalls, and enjoying the firework spectacle and the shows of boats sailing up and down the river decked out with brilliant light displays, or you may choose to head away from the hustle and bustle and find a quieter restaurant.
