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 ,
This tour was amazing!
This half day tour is a nice break from the city and a good way to see some of the countryside. I was picked up from the hotel right at the time that the local tour operator had told me. The guide (Daro) was excellent and very informative and offered different local snacks. The village and silk weaving were interesting and travelling by ferry and then a boat cruise were also great experiences.
This was the way to see to see Phnom Penh and the guide was excellent
Awesome Thank you
Excellent, fun and informative tour. Travelling by tuk tuk on a dirt road was certainly an experience but a great way to see the local countryside. Silk weaving was very interesting and you can actually have a go at it yourself. Lovely sunset coming back by boat. Our tour guide Tien was delightful with a great sense of humour so all in all a lovely day.
Enjoyed this tour,it was very cosy being transported by tuk tuk.The guide was very informative and the sights were a joy to behold.Eating some local delicases was an eye opener.Overall a very good tour.
Really enjoyed the tour - was nice to visit the Silk Weaving family business on Silk Island.
Our tour guide was very friendly and full of knowledge.
A nice trip outside Phnom Penh. It was interesting to see how they live in the country side. It was very dirty but interesting. Visiting the silk factory was also educating.
Tour was relaxing.We enjoyed the trip to the village,the silk manufacturing unit and the hospitality.Must see.
