You then head to Prek Tuol which is an important bird sanctuary and biosphere reserve based around the enormous Tonle Sap lake. You will go on a guided tour to see the wildlife (best time to go is Oct - March) and also to visit the traditional floating villages that can be found here.

Next you will get the chance to explore the vibrant and buzzy capital of Phnom Penh including a half day cycling tour before heading down the Mekong River by boat to Chau Doc in Vietnam.
