Tatai

If you are after pure unspoiled nature, Tatai is the place to go. Located on the western edge of Cambodia, close to the Thai border, this rural riverside town is home to the scenic 4 Rivers Floating Ecolodge.

Lying closely to the South Cardamom protected area, it is the ideal location to explore Cambodia’s untouched countryside, either by kayak or walking through the lush rain-forest; both of which are equally enjoyable for families and couples alike. Nature enthusiasts will appreciate the abundance of wildlife that can be spotted here within the verdant mangrove forest as well as on the river. Colourful butterflies and fireflies at dusk can be spotted flitting about, whilst elusive creatures such as shorebirds, monkeys and even the rare leopard-print wildcat, pad through the surrounding jungle.

Quiet fishing communities also lie nearby, and the Tatai Waterfall is within walking distance of the Ecolodge, which is definitely worth a visit during your stay. Steadily flowing throughout the year, this natural wonder is more of a gently cascading waterfall rather than crashing a powerful current of freshwater, so forms comfortable pools – ideal for a dip on a hot day or after a long walk or boat ride.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and take a welcome relaxed break after a culture-rich tailor-made itinerary, most likely visiting the temples of Angkor, by connecting with the peaceful nature here. The breadth of activities on offer make it a great destination for those wanting a tranquil holiday away from the stresses of life back home. Our favourite way to de-stress is to swing on a hammock while admiring the river view, where clear fresh water meets verdant green forest behind. For those who like to keep active, one can almost never tire of all the exploring around the surrounding landscape.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
