Cambodia Sports & Adventure

Whilst Cambodia is fifty years behind Thailand in terms of infrastructure (and much more in some places), there are still numerous ways to find adventure in this beautiful country. Indeed Cambodia's lack of development makes almost any excursion beyond the tourist spots of Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Sihanonukville (Kampong Saom) an adventure. Most roads remain unpaved and rivers and waterways are still an important means of communication and trade.

Outside the cities, people still live in a rural world that has not changed for hundreds of years - without electricity, running water and often even a road wide enough for anything bigger than a Honda Dream. Perfect for mountain biking trails and kayaks!

Cambodia's railway is so decrepit that you can walk faster than the train, and in Battambang or Kampot you can even rent a flat bed rail car big enough for 6 people to ride, powered by a diesel engine - known as the "Bamboo Railway" - to take you trundling along the tracks to explore the verdant green rice fields and villages, stopping at will.

The highland regions of Cambodia's eastern provinces of Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri, bordering Vietnam, are still largely forest covered and are home to ethnic minority people, offering excellent trekking possibilities, whilst the Cardomom Mountain range on the west, bordering Thailand, remains the largest unadulterated tract of primary rainforest on the South East Asian mainland, harbouring numerous animal and bird species (many only recently discovered to exist) including tiger, elephant, gaur and the World's last remaining viable population of Siamese Crocodile. 

As in all rapidly developing nations, all of this is now under threat with rampant logging and unabated illegal trade in wildlife.
