Pick up in the afternoon is between 2 – 2.30pm by local moto-remork (Cambodian tuk tuk).
This afternoon we explore local Cambodian life on our sunset island visit and boat cruise. Head out of town on the Japanese Friendship Bridge which was blown up during fighting in 1975 and reconstructed by the Japanese in 1993.
Catch a vehicle ferry across the mighty Mekong River to Mekong Island. The island is famous for silk weaving, agriculture and aquaculture. Stop to see the silk weavers at work in the village. You can purchase some of the local product if you wish. Explore a Buddhist temple and experience the simple life style of the local people around 85% of who earn their living from agriculture or aquaculture. See fields of rice, morning glory and fruit. Enjoy some local snacks and wander around the small produce market. Stop to look around the Vietnamese village and see the fishing boats, floating fish farms and the pretty Catholic Church.
Say goodbye to the tuk tuk and board a boat to enjoy sunset from the water at the junction of the Tonle Bassac, Tonle Sap and the mighty Mekong Rivers. Enjoy seeing the distinctive architecture of Cambodia where Khmer influenced buildings such as Wat Ounalom, the Royal Palace, and the Silver Pagoda meet French colonial buildings some renovated some ravaged by neglect and the war. Return to Phnom Penh where you are transferred to your hotel.
