We Travel down the Tonle Sap River , passing stunning scenery as Phnom Penh fades into the background as you relax with the peace and quiet of the countryside taking in the views of the landscape. You will see Cambodians at work as we sail by farms, fishermen, floating villages and islands. The Cruise to Silk Island takes approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.
Arriving at the Island you then relax on the islands beach by the shores of river which has many beach huts to sit in where your guide will help you order some traditional Cambodian food and fruits for lunch, all included in the price.
Once you are ready your guide then takes you to board the traditional mode of transport on the island.....the horse drawn cart. As you pass through the local villages you will see traditional wooden houses with friendly Cambodian families smiling and waving to you welcoming you to their Island.
After this short ride you then arrive to the Silk Weaving areas. The traditional Khmer silk weaving has existed for centuries with fine silk fibers woven into beautiful silk cloth and Silk Island is the best place to experience this in Cambodia. You will be able to see the Silks being woven and speak to the weavers via your guide to learn about this tradition. You will also have the opportunity if you want, to buy some of the silk produce including table cloths, scarves and covers at cheaper prices than in the City. You then board the horse and cart to get taken back to the river where the Mekong Tara Prince Awaits.
Once aboard you will cruise back to Phnom Penh having had the opportunity to relax away from the city as well as see some stunning scenery and experience the real rural Cambodia. The tour includes two complimentary drinks aboard the Mekong Tara Prince but there is also a fully stocked bar selling ice cold beers, soft drinks, wine and spirits at cheaper than bar prices if you want. You will arrive back in Phnom Penh just before 3pm and your guide will then take you in a prearranged tuk tuk to your hotel or guesthouse.
