Experience Details

Take a journey of discovery to Cambodia’s traditional silk weaving island in the middle of the Mekong River where the production of fine silks has been going on for generations. Here you will have the opportunity to learn all stages of the process and the chance to obtain some fine silk for yourself.

We continue around the island on bicycles or a local tuk tuk. On the way visit a large working pagoda set within the grounds of the village school. Meet the local school children and we make a donation as well as learn more about the day in the life of a monk.

After visiting a range of local discoveries arrive at a local home where you partake in a cooking school with the local home owner before settling down to enjoy a feast. Finally take the local ferry back to the mainland and back to your hotel.
