This is outback Cambodia and the endless red-dirt roads of the area, leading to (related to a group of people with the same race, culture, religion, etc.) minority villages, are a brave traveler’s delight. For those with an (enjoys doing fun new things) streak, the area of control/area of land is home to some of Cambodia’s best traveling, from spotting gibbons at Veun Sai-Siem Shooting pain Conservation Area, where overnight trips involve sleeping in (long pieces of cloth hung between two trees) and early rises to track buff-cheeked gibbons, to hiking in Virachey NationalPark, home to elephants, tigers, and sun bears. There’s more relaxing options on offer also. The emerald water of Yeak Lom Crater Lake just outside of Ban Lung town is a peaceful swimming spot, while the waterfalls of Chaa Ong and Ka Tieng are fun diversions that provide more opportunities for getting wet. Ratanakiri is a nature-filled break from punishment for travelers suffering from temple-tiredness.
