What You Can Expect
The village on Silk Island is typical of many rural Cambodian villages, with houses built up high on stilts. You will see people underneath the houses, weaving silk on hand looms and dying it vibrant colors. See how the silk is transformed from a cotton wool-like texture into thread on homemade spinning wheels made from bicycle parts. Try using the looms to weave the silk into distinct Ikat patterns, or wander the village and meet the locals.
Later, board a boat for a sunset cruise down the Mekong River and back to Phnom Penh. Admire the city from the water as the setting sun provides a stunning backdrop to the skyline.
a fantastic tour , are guide( daro) picked me up on time and was one off the most friendly guides i have
had , we first went by public boat across the mekong, ( which was a great experience)
then by tuk tuk through the countryside to a silk farm where they show you how the silk is produced and made , you even get a chance to weave some silk yourself , the people who own the silk farm are friendly and make you feel most welcome, at the farm wewere given refreshments off fresh fruit and drinks
after the silk farm we were taken to see the reclining Buddha, and the monkeys !!!
and to finish the trip we were taken back to phonm pehn by boat to see the sun set.
this trip is well worth doing while in phonm pehn ,
