Every year, Cambodia parties for three solid days along the Tonle Sap River to celebrate the end of the rainy season. Millions of people turn up every year to hear bands, eat ak ambok (a traditional Khmer rice dish), and cheer on the longboat racers during Bon Om Touk. But why merely attend the festival when you could be a part of it yourself? On this tour, you’ll get the chance to join a longboat crew and take part in the race itself, as well as meet with monks, explore ancient temples by bike, and soak up one of those legendary Tonle Sap sunsets. How’s that for an unbeatable travel story?
