Fish like a true Cambodian fisherman on the banks of both the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers!

tour description

Be taken to meet with your host and learn how to throw the nets for maximum area effect and catch river wonders like catfish and the giant freshwater Mekong prawn! Get on board a traditional Cham fisherman's boat from the fishing village you see right across from Phnom Penh's riverside and cruise down the rivers as you find a suitable fishing spot to throw the nets out!

At the end of the course your host would prepare a nice lunch or dinner with your catch, right on the boat itself! Don't worry if you don't catch anything, your host will have a back-up!
