River Cruise During Dry Season

Jump to last reply

I’ve been an avid fan of the Forum for quite some time. Great ideas and planning tips have helped us plan 2 trips to Kenya in the past four years. Am stepping out of the shadows as another trip is on the immediate horizon and we could use some input.

Planning a trip in January to a part of the world we’ve never visited before-Thailand, Laos and Cambodia
2 nights- Bangkok to get our feet under us
3 nights- Luang Prabang, Laos
4 nights- River Cruise from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh
2 nights- Phnom Penh
4 nights- Bangkok

We have reservations on the Jayavarman from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh for four nights. Has anyone done this trip during the dry season? After researching further we are questioning if it is worth it during the dry season. We start out by driving 5 or 6 hours to board the boat. Are we going to miss a lot of the experience with the water being so low? Am not a big cruise person but have read a lot of reports about other people’s positive experience. It’s an expensive part of our trip and would like thoughts on what to expect. Perhaps, we should plan the River Cruise on another trip at a different time of the year?

If we decide not to do the River Cruise, we would love any suggestions what to do/see traveling from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh? Special places, guides, etc.?
