    Hi,
    We are travelling to Cambodia next week (first time!) we'll be there for 23 days. We want to go trekking for 2-3 days in a national park, jungle... somewhere off the track. We heard about Chi Phat and some tour activities around there with ecotourism. Just wondering if anyone can recommend it? and know the prices? I have emailed them, but haven't got a reply yet.

    or if you know any other good places for hiking trekking in Cambodia? We would like to find something around Siem Reap or in the south maybe. We don't want to plan our route day by day, we'll see how we go. We'll arrive in Phnom Penh, go to Siem Reap, maybe Battabang, then somewhere trekking and finish in Sihanoukville and 1 or 2 islands to return home from Phom Penh.

    Unfortunately we dont really have time to travel north east, I read there are good places up there!

    Any advise would be great,
    Thanks a lot!

    Since you don't have enough time to NE of Cambodia, Chi Pat remains your best option. Here is a link from another travel forum that answers some of your questions: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1532269-i16965-k4345787-Chi_Phat_The_most_amazing_place_I_have_ever_been-Koh_Kong_Koh_Kong_Province.html There is no mention of the homestays which I believe are 3$ per night, certainly no more than $5. Have fun.

    Highly recommend Chi Phat I am about to return there for 3 week stay having spent time there the last two years.

    They are not very good at emails but no need to worry about accomodation there is plenty and the only place that might be booked is the eco lodge itself

    There is a web site http://www.ecoadventurecambodia.com/ but I am sorry I can not remember prices but they seemed reasonable

    Hope to see you there
