Rattanak Kiri province lies in the northeast of the country, bordered by Vietnam to the east and Laos to the north. Whilst a journey here by car is nine hours from Phnom Penh, helicopters can be chartered to reduce the journey time. Its distance from the regular sites of Cambodia means it is rarely included on itineraries, which adds to its charm.
Perfect for those looking for nature and wildlife, the diverse geographical area encompasses rolling hills, cascading waterfalls, crater lakes and dense rainforest teeming with exotic flora and fauna. It offers great opportunities for the adventurous to enjoy eco-tourism. Visit the tranquil volcanic lake of Yeak Laom near the town of Banlung, here you can swim in the clean, turquoise waters.

Thank you for helping us organise our trip to Cambodia and Beijing. We had an incredible time! We were amazed that despite the pace we felt very relaxed. It was also wonderful only having the responsibility of deciding what to eat! Thank you again for putting together such a wonderful itinerary. We are new fans of A&K!
