Cambodian Life

Wat Ounalom, Koh Dach (Silk Island), Village Lunch & more

Be transported into the depths of rural life within arms reach of this bustling capital city.

Enjoy a guided scenic tuk tuk ride through key sights of the city, stopping first at the Preah Ang Dongka shrine near the Royal Palace. Walk to the nearby Wat Ounalom respected as one of the significant centres of Buddhism in Phnom Penh. Like the locals, enjoy the unique experience of being blessed at the start of the day by a monk.

Enjoy the stunning view of the Riverside before travelling to the ferry crossing to Koh Dach, lovingly known as Silk Island. Immerse yourself in the ancient art of silk production. Appreciate the skilful weavers and artisans creating silk products in stunning colours and try your hand at weaving yourself! Later on, lend a hand with tending to the goats at the farm. Meet the locals and experience a unique opportunity of having a homemade lunch with a local family. Enjoy khmer hospitality while you learn about their lifestyle and craft.
