About the Challenge

Only a short flight from Siem Reap lies the Gulf of Thailand, with its long curving golden beaches and clear blue sea scattered with tiny islands. Here you can relax!

A boat trip allows you to discover unspoilt islands offshore, where pristine white-sand beaches and swaying palms fringe the interior rainforest. Snorkel among pristine coral – you may see stingrays as well as the many colourful tropical fish – and after a seafood BBQ on the beach and plenty of time to relax, the boat brings you back to the mainland.

You will stay in a plush 4* beachfront hotel with wonderful bungalow rooms, on a quiet area of the coastline. Otres is not known for its parties or large resorts, and it’s the perfect place to get away from it all.



OPEN 5 DAYS
  • (main group departs Siem Reap for the UK same day)

    Say your farewells to the rest of the group and transfer (approx 45 mins) to the airport, where you board the plane for the short flight to Sihanoukville. From here it’s another short drive to our beachfront hotel. Night hotel.

    Breakfast provided; provide own Lunch & Dinner

  • Today we hop aboard for a boat trip around the wonderful islands offshore. We stop at Koh Kaung Kang, where we can snorkel among the coral, and move on to Koh Rong Samloem. Here there’s time to visit a small fishing village or explore the island rainforest, before enjoying the pristine beach and aquamarine water at Saracen Bay. There’s another opportunity to snorkel here, before we gather for a seafood BBQ lunch on the beach. After plenty of time to relax, we head back to the mainland and return to our hotel. Night hotel.

    Breakfast & Lunch provided; provide own Dinner

  • Today you’re free to spend your time as you like. Otres is not a large resort or a party town, and has a quiet charm. The small friendly cafés and bars are convenient for a snack of fresh mini-lobster or a cold beer after a refreshing dip in the clear sea, and you can treat yourself to a beach massage. A short walk away, the friendly village has a great market and a good choice of restaurants. Night hotel.

    Breakfast provided; provide own Lunch & Dinner

  • Time to relax and have an early lunch before the transfer to the airport at Phnom Penh and your international flight home.

    Drive approx 4.5 hours

    Breakfast provided; provide own Lunch & Dinner
