Beaches and Rivers

This is the second largest virgin forest in Southeast Asia and extends over 20,000 square km. Home to the richest biodiversity in the country.

Despite some development, it is still possible to discover untouched beaches and relax and enjoy the exquisite surroundings which are unique to this part of Cambodia. Alternatively travel to the Four Rivers Floating Lodge found in the shadow of the Cardamom Mountains, on the banks of the Tatai River.

Paul Craven

Paul is the Conde Nast Traveler chosen Specialist for Central Asia and the Silk Route.

Being from a family with Army connections I can from an early age remember travelling. From camping in Europe and then later being sent to boarding school when we lived in Germany at the age of eight, complete with shorts, long socks, a cap and my suitcase. In appearance not too dissimilar to the children evacuated to the countryside during the blitz.

Clare Higginson

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list.
