More About This Experience

Start your Phnom Penh Mekong tour off with some excitement, as we will go by moto-remork (aka Cambodian tuk tuk) in preparation for your chilled afternoon exploring local Cambodian life. Head out of Phnom Penh on the Japanese Friendship Bridge, which was blown up during fighting in 1975 and reconstructed by the Japanese in 1993, before catching a vehicle ferry across the mighty Mekong River to Mekong Island. Mekong Island is famous for silk weaving, agriculture and aquaculture, and we'll stop to see the silk weavers at work in the village, where you can purchase some of the local product if you wish. Explore a Buddhist temple and experience the simple lifestyle of the local people around 85% of who earn their living from agriculture or aquaculture. See fields of rice, morning glory, fruit, visit local family's house and enjoy Khmer snacks. Look around the Vietnamese village and see the fishing boats, floating fish farms, and the pretty Catholic Church. Next up, it's time for the Mekong tour part! Say goodbye to the tuk tuk and board a boat to enjoy sunset from the water at the junction of the Tonle Bassac, Tonle Sap, and the mighty Mekong Rivers. Enjoy seeing the distinctive architecture of Cambodia where Khmer influenced buildings such as Wat Ounalom, the Royal Palace, and the Silver Pagoda meet French colonial buildings, some renovated some ravaged by neglect and the war. After the Mekong boat tour and gorgeous sunset, we'll return you back to Phnom Penh and back to your hotel.

Although visiting the Killing Fields and prison was difficult, we felt it was important and don't think anyone visiting Cambodia should miss it. We really enjoyed visiting Mekong Islan... Read more
