If you fancy something different then try the private island dream. Located on Krabey Island, just a short boat transfer from Sihanouville on Cambodia'''' s coastline, Six Senses Krabey Island is one of Southeast Asia'''' s finest island resorts. Uncluttered, natural and sympathetic to its tranquil surroundings, Six Senses Krabey Island is a wonderful retreat to help completely unwind after a touring itinerary through Southeast Asia. . It provides a stylish island escape blending natural and paired back materials with indulgent luxuries and technology, this is one of the country'''' s finest hideaway retreats. There are just 40 pool villas in the haven, which includes a spa. There are two restaurants one of which, Tree, which offers a contemporary twist on traditional Khmer cuisine. The Sunset Bar, which was designed to emulate local fishermen’s homes is a must do. Accessible by boat, the hotel’s sports cruiser transfer takes 15 minutes from the resort’s mainland reception. Six Senses Krabey Island also has the capability to welcome private jets and helicopters.

Hotel concierges or other local agencies can arrange excursions to see the renowned floating villages that hover atop Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake. Village visits and tours of a silk farm can be added to complete this day long excursion from Siem Reap.
Some companies can offer customised daily and scheduled cycling itineraries around Cambodia. Observing the countryside from the seat of a bicycle provides a slow travel opportunity to view details that might go unnoticed, as well as chances to stop at your leisure and meet locals along the way. If this appeals then consider the three day, two night ride from Angkor to Phnom Penh.
If you are more of an intrepid traveller you might enjoy exploring the less touristed northern Cambodia. In the northeast, Ratanakiri’s thick jungles have become the realm of ecotourism. Just expect rustic, camp style hotels, while charming Battambang, in the far northwest, enchants with an artsy colonial vibe. Home to Cambodia’s most admired circus, Phare Ponleu Selpak, the fanciful riverside town can be reached from Siem Reap by boat.
You can also cruise by private boat to the small village of Baray, where you can find Villa Chandara. This is located within a man made reservoir, historically significant to the Angkorian rice irrigation systems. Then enjoy an afternoon with villagers who share their traditional skills before touring the villa’s garden. Finally, sit down to a gourmet, candlelight, five-course, Khmer-style meal in sight of the rice paddies
