Buggy fun in Cambodia
Cambodia is a beautiful country, and while it is developing, it has plenty of things to offer. The iconic Angkor Wat is probably the most popular choice when it comes to Cambodia, but adventurous people can enjoy it as well. If you know where to look, which you can learn, you will find numerous fun places where you can explore the country in a buggy. I recommend that only experienced drivers try a buggy because it requires some skill. Off-road should not be experienced by new drivers, but if you think you got it, you are more than welcome to give it a try. Here is where you can have some fun in a buggy.
If you do not have much experience with driving, then this is the place where you can go. The tour is easy, and you can explore the village and its charming view. The fields are vast, and people there are used to buggy tourists. You can stop at a local shop for a nice, fresh drink. But the best thing about this buggy tour is the culture. You can see how regular village people in Cambodia live. The cheers and the smiles will make your day. Plus, the trip is so easy that even children can do it, so as far as difficulty goes, there is not much.
You cannot go on a buggy tour without passing through Siem Reap. In fact, this may be the place where you land, so you may as well start your adventure there. The off-road Baray tour is one of the most popular in the region. In two hours you can have a lot of fun. The dirt tracks and the scenery are breathtaking. Plus, the tracks are smooth enough for beginners. Just do not forget to stop at the Siem Reap silk farm before you leave. It is not something you can afford to overlook.
This is a tour that lasts an entire afternoon. The breathtaking scenery of the Tonle Sap Lake is something that you will never forget. Moreover, experiencing it in a buggy brings a particular charm to the whole trip. You can take a boat trip to the floating villages, and you can even take a tour of the fish and crocodile farms. If you are not squeamish, make sure not to lose it. After that, it is all an off-road experience. The tracks are not as smooth as in the previous two locations, but that only makes the experience more adventurous, and if it rains, make sure to leave your Sunday clothes at the hotel.
I am pretty sure that a thorough search can expose many more buggy tracks all around the country. Just do not forget that you need a visa to enter Cambodia. You can get it online if you want. All you need is a passport.
The rest is easy. At the same time, do not forget to be safe. Safety should be your first priority, and if you ever find an off-road track that does not make you comfortable, talk to your tour guide to slow down the pace, and come back next year more prepared. There is always room for improvement and time for new challenges.
