Steung Treng Adventure Tour FAQs

How long should you stay in Steung Treng?

Two days would generally be enough to experience the essential elements of Steung Treng. The city, although small, offers a host of natural, cultural, and historical sites that can be explored in this timeframe.

On the first day, visitors can navigate the city’s serene streets, and stop by the central market for a taste of local food and culture. A visit to the Mekong Blue Stung Treng Silk Centre offers an insight into the region's silk weaving traditions.

On the second day, adventurers can head out for a boat trip to the Anlong Cheuteal Dolphin site, one of the few places in the world where you can see the critically endangered Irrawaddy dolphins.

You might also want to explore the nearby Thala Barivat district, home to pre-Angkorian ruins.

It should be noted that individual preferences and the pace of travel can influence the duration of stay. Some visitors might prefer to extend their visit to further delve into the peaceful way of life, enjoy the natural beauty, or explore the surrounding rural regions more extensively.

What is the best month to visit Steung Treng?

Steung Treng, like the rest of Cambodia, has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons - the dry season from November to April and the wet season from May to October.

The best time to visit is typically during the dry season when the weather is cooler and travelling is easier. December and January are especially pleasant months as the temperature hovers around 26 degrees Celsius (79 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day, dropping to a comfortable 18 degrees Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) at night.

This time of the year also sees less rainfall, making it ideal for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

However, those who don't mind the rain might find the wet season appealing as the landscape turns a lush green, water levels in the Mekong River rise, and the city appears even more serene and picturesque.

What is the history of Steung Treng?

Steung Treng's history is deeply interwoven with the history of the larger Khmer Empire. Originally, Steung Treng was part of the vast Khmer Empire, which covered much of Southeast Asia. The region played a crucial role as a trading post, connecting the empire to its neighbours. Evidence of this rich past can be seen in the scattered remnants of the pre-Angkorian period, particularly in the Thala Barivat district.

The province then went through a period of control by the Lao kingdom during the 18th century before becoming a part of French Indochina in the late 19th century. The influence of these periods can still be seen in the architecture and culture of the region.

Steung Treng, despite its turbulent history, managed to retain much of its traditional charm and cultural heritage, making it a fascinating place for history enthusiasts to delve into Cambodia's past.
