We had a brilliant day out on this tour to Phnom Tamao. Our tour guide Vanthana was friendly and chatty and very well informed about all the animals. One of the best days we had in Cambodia.

Don’t be fooled!! This tour is not actually what they sell you in the website!! It is a trip to the Zoo, with some monkeys and an elephant living around. Animals are in small cages and seem pretty sad, it doesn’t look like a rescue...More
