Why Ream National Park is special ?

About 18km to the east of Sihanoukville, Ream National Park (also known as the Preah Sihanouk National Park) is unique in Cambodia, covering 210 square kilometres of both terrestrial and marine habitat, including stunning coastal scenery, mangrove swamps, lowland evergreen forest and the islands of Koh Thmei and Koh Ses. At least 155 species of bird have been recorded in the park, and for resident and visiting waders, the mangrove-lined Prek Toeuk Sap River is an important habitat. Besides supporting a large population of fishing eagles, the river is also home to milky and adjutant storks, and kingfishers, which are regularly spotted on the river trips – and dolphins often put in an appearance between December and April. The list of mammals includes deer, wild pig and fishing cats, though these are all elusive and you’re more likely to see monkeys.

1.    The Ream National Park in Sihanoukville is also easily connected by major road links in Cambodia. To reach the park from Sihanoukville Travel 18 km north on Route 4, then right on Airport Road (near the naga statue). The park office is located 500m further, opposite the entrance to the airport.

2.    To get to Ream National Park, 18km east Sihanoukville, take NH4 to Sihanoukville International Airport; the park headquarters is 700m south of NH4 across the road from the new green-roofed terminal building. Boats leave from Prek Toeuk Sap Ranger Station, about 3km further out along NH4 (at the bridge). A coastal road linking the park with Otres Beach and Sihanoukville is planned.

3.    A return trip by moto should cost US$5 to US$10; the price depends on how well the driver speaks English and how long you stay. A private taxi costs about US$25 for the day.

We hopped on a tuk-tuk at the cruise port and hired him for $120 for about 7 hours. He also served as a bit of a guide for us so we found this well worth it. We hired a guide at Ream, which I thought was supposed to be $5 per person, but it was $10. The guide took us on a 2 hour or so hike. The hike was amazing, and I would have absolutely loved it as I am a workout buff, had I been told to bring water!!!!! There is no water along the way or at the top so please be sure to pick some up from a vendor before you go. It is very hot and the hike we personally did was rather intense and slippery from a rain the night before. The hike was beautiful. I was hoping to see some wildlife but was told the monkeys and birds are only out early morning and night so the only wildlife we saw was a snake (small and harmless I'm sure, though it sent me into a panic!). If you are someone who genuinely enjoys hiking and being a part of nature as I do, you will surely enjoy this. If you are not a fan of either of those, you will want to stay away.

We joined "Romny" tours, which picked us up from our hotel at 7.30am and were given breakfast at Romny guest-house, while waiting for more tourists to turn up. Breakfast consisted of a piece of bread (baguette) and tea. At 9am we took a mini-bus for about 30 minutes to a river and then took a slow boat journey to the coast and landed at a beach. This is supposedly a national park, but a Chinese developer is building a resort at the beach. We were then left for an hour in the midday sun at the isolated beach with limited shade with the option of paying US$15 for fixed shelter. We then spent about 45 minutes walking through the 'national park'. There was litter every where and walked through poor villagers homes. Finally, we arrived at another jetty, had some fish and rice and fruit and then took the boat back to the original starting point. To be honest it was a pretty ordinary trip. We saw a couple of egrets, one sea eagle. No dolphins, no waterfalls and one chained up monkey in the mini-village we walked through. The guide was very nice and spoke reasonable English. The Cambodian government is not yet properly protecting the national park as evident in the Chinese property development and the litter everywhere. I didn't see a single rubbish bin or map in the national park.

That place is really nice even that place is not so popular for Cambodian but very popular for foreigner. Enjoy with trekking, taking boat a long river get to the sea especially have a nice beach that environment not yet destroy. The ranger really friendly and take car us very well.I recommend that place if someone who want to do something different or want to have new experience of traveling beside sitting, eating and watching at the crowded beach.
