tour details

Explore the city’s countryside and local traditions, Discover the city’s architectural heritage
Little would you guess that a bustling city such as Phnom Penh has a beautiful authentic countryside just across the river. To go and discover this part of the city, you will board one of the nicest boats in Phnom Penh and start your cruise where the Tonle Sap and Mekong River meet, up the Mekong towards Silk Island (Koh Dach).
Cambodian silk production and weaving, thrived from the 13th century until the arrival of the Khmer Rouge in the mid 70s. The know-how of the craftsmen who survived that terrible period is continuing in villages of silk-weavers, notably on Silk Island.

Explore the architectural landscape of the bustling and quickly transforming Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh on a well thought Heritage audio Tour which highlights the city’s architectural heritage dating back to the era of the French Protectorate.
