The nature and wildlife in this tropical paradise will be imprinted in your memory forever. Birds and monkeys call out, and insects chirp and click, as the jungle provides one of the most relaxing soundtracks ever composed.

This trip will offer you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the wonders of Southeast Asia’s largest remaining rainforest and relax in the tranquility of the Tatai River – a once-in-a-lifetime glamping experience in the beauty and splendor of the Cardamom Rainforest.
