    tour details

    Just a few kilometres away from Phnom Penh there exists a rural paradise hidden away on the islands of the Mekong River. This adventure on the back of a Vespa scooter helps travellers escape the city and dive into the rural world of yesterday crossing riverside tracks and dirt roads and taking three ferry rides throughout the experience, while enjoying fantastic views of the city on one side and countryside life on the other.

    Visit a 500-year old sanctuary temple set in a mystical forest, a local family’s sugar palm and goat farm, an island market, and a family-run special soup ingredient business while also learning about local belief systems and the tradition of Buddhist cremation. For an even more local experience, witness the art of silk making at a local family house then sit down to lunch with the family.

    tour description

    7:30am you will be picked up at your hotel and head off for a few hours of adventure, escaping the city to the rural world of yesterday!

    You will escape the city by road, bridge, and ferry to Silk Island. Drive down riverside tracks and dirt roads to a remote 500-year old sanctuary temple set in a mystical forest and continue your explorations to a local family's sugar palm and goat farm, an island market, and a family business which runs special soup ingredients.

    You will stop for riverside refreshments before continuing the adventure on a second island cruising through scenes of rural life that have changed little to this day. Take a small local ferry to a famous temple to learn about local belief systems and the tradition of Buddhist cremation.

    Your last stop is at a local family house where you can experience the art of silk making, and where you will also enjoy a delicious homemade lunch.

    Final drive follows a wonderful riverside trail with cattle grazing on one side and fantastic city views on the other, until you reach the last ferry to take you back to Phnom Penh.
