Create an itinerary including Bokor National Park
Home to the dilapidated French hill station, Bokor National Park sits as one of only two ASEAN Heritage Parks in Cambodia. Sprawling mountainous jungle provides a safe habitat for a diverse range of wildlife, including a herd of wild Indian elephants, leopards, and snakes. The accessible section of the park is its hill station, scattered with relics of French colonialism from the 1920s, including an abandoned casino and church. Hire a local tour guide and head to the summit, exploring the misty grounds, leftover ruins, and spectacular views.

  • Be sure to rent a scooter or motorbike instead of taking a guided tour. Although there are tons of horror stories about Chinese mega resorts on the top of the mountain, it's not all bad: There are one or two horribly run down and ugly buildings on the way to the top, someone also laid down a brand new road that makes driving to the top of the mountain on that new twisty road a ton of fun.
  • Very nice long road to drive, as the traffic was not busy and very few big trucks coming even though they are building an industrial zone on the mountain. The abandoned church and houses were not especially exciting though.
