Reviews of Ream National Park

Ream National Park is a protected natural area, located to the south of Phnom Penh on the road to Sihanoukville.

My suggestion:
Rent a boat at the park's entrance, to take a ride in the mangroves and admire the flora and fauna. 
My review

Ream National Park is a good excursion with the family or for those who enjoy sporting activities: in fact, I spent a morning trekking, accompanied by a local guide. 

It depends on the seasons, but in general, you can admire many species of birds, because there are more than 150 different species of them throughout the park. Therefore hikes are arranged, and top notch facilities allow you to get a beautiful view on the jungle's peaks to admire the flora and fauna. 

From November to March, you can expect see dolphins during a boat ride in Ream National Park.  

I didn’t spend the night, but there are two guesthouses located near the park's beaches: it is a very good option for nature lovers and those who are looking for a peaceful night!

Ream National Park is about 20 kilometres from Sihanouk and is made for lovers of nature and paradisaical beaches.

My suggestion:
Stretch out in a hammock and let yourself be lulled to sleep by the noise of the waves...
My review

If you want to have a relaxing break in a heavenly setting during your trip to Cambodia, then I recommend spending a few days in Ream National Park. I escaped there for three days and I really appreciated this quiet break after the noise and bustle of Phnom Penh.

I stayed in a little guesthouse by the sea, with a fine sandy beach, crystal clear water and no other hotels in sight. In front of the hotel was a little pier where I watched the sun go down from the comfort of my wicker armchair.

During the day you can take a trip in a boat on Prek Tek Sap river to explore the mangroves and the ecosystem of Ream National Park.

If you want to be part of some picture postcard scenery then I recommend a boat trip to Ream's islands. If you want to look at the fish make sure you check the water's visibility before you leave. Because I was promised a "great spot" for snorkelling but the sea was so clouded (because of plankton, I was told) that I couldn't see a metre in front of myself!
