CHARACTER TRANSPORTATION

One point of note, when it comes to getting around Cambodia, is that the law does not recognize foreign driver's licenses or international driver's licenses. This means that you must obtain a Cambodian driver's license or rely on others for transportation. This is not a problem, though, as we have many options available for you.

Cambodia a Smiling Face and Shocking History !

Cambodia is well known as the country of the greatest empire in Southeast Asia Khmer, magnificent ruins, gentle and friendly people, long history and amazing culture that make a great opportunity for adventure tour.

The Angkor is the best and largest architectural product in the world, it was amazing how happy the people found such those huge archeological site at that time. The Cambodian people enjoyed their life, and were grateful for what they had. The temples have smiling faces. But the powerful kingdom with smiling faces left under the horror of the Khmer Rouge that kept Cambodia in its power from 1975 to 1980.

Remnants of both era's are very visible in the Cambodia of today. There is a lot to see and do for the Adventurous People in Cambodia.

The infrastructure in Cambodia country side apart from Angkor Wat is not so good, so it is still untouched by tourism, Adventurous Asia will organize the useful transport to fit your every adventure.

What is meant by Over Landing?

Apart from using public transport, there are other means of travelling overland. Taking our Adventurous Asia’s vehicle is a great idea to the urban areas and unwell - paved road, undiscovered site around Cambodia, this may have some more advantages to see new people, taste local cuisine, and learn new words, more details of rural life, get to see the real activities, former refugee camp and Pot Pot and Khmer Rouge's camp and slowly but surely you will get to know a new culture

While travelling long way with us, you will indeed enjoy with breathe taking view and landscape of tropical forest and may end up sleeping at our locals home stay in distant villages in the countryside.

During your Adventurous Trip, the Adventurous Asia will most likely organize a 4x4 vehicle or dirt motorbike to the rare visited remote regions, allowing you to go off road, if it is not technical enough to go by the 4x4, consider taking an overland truck. These are organized trips, but other than that, we offer all the excitement of adventure travel.

Last, but certainly not least, we would like to mention travelling by bicycle. Agreed, it is slow, but if you have more time on your hands, it is the best way to experience the country and region you are travelling in.  Siem Reap and Angkor Wat Temples Siem Reap, little town is a tourist haven, because of the vicinity to the Angkor Wat temples and surrounding undiscovered site. But there is much more of interest here.

The landmine museum for instance, another remnant of the civil war, also a butterfly garden, and other sights. But as everybody else, we visit Siem Reap especially. And we are not disappointed by them.

From the large temple of Angkor Wat itself, via the monasteries which are overgrown by the jungle, to the remote decorated temple of Banteay Srei, everything is beautiful. If we have to mention one downside, it would be that it's just too much. During your visit to temples of Angkor you also enjoy taking the Adventurous Asia Hot Air Balloon Ride over Angkor Wat, Ox and horse Carts tours in the rice field, take the Helicopter Flight over Angkor Wat temples, Tonle Sap lake, Banteay Srei temple and waterfall at Phnom Kulen.

From Siem Reap-  Battambang Around Battambang

Battambang is the second a nice, laid back place and largest city in Cambodia which is not often visited, since it is difficult to reach, and most tourists prefer to stay on the Phnom Penh - Angkor Wat route. We take a private boat trip from Siem Reap through Tole Sap lake and Sanke river for half day or three hours tour by car or bus from Siem Reap and six hours drive from Phnom Penh

By the time you reach there in the afternoon, you will explore the city and the countryside. And the adventure that not to be missed is the Bamboo Train Tour with the distance 25k for haft our each way. And again, we are confronted with the civil war, when we see the killing caves and hear the stories from our guide next day; the beauty and friendliness of Cambodia are dominant here as well.
