Description

Venture away from the hustle and bustle of the city to explore the charming and traditional Silk Island. On this private tour, get glimpses into local life, and tour the silk farm to learn about the process of silk production.

Depart from your hotel and travel through the bustling streets of Phnom Penh. On the way, pay a visit to the majestic Bakhaeng Temple, and get the chance to try a local delicacy from 1 of the many roadside stalls you pass.

Reach the Mekong River, and then board a ferry for the crossing to Silk Island. As you step onto the island, experience the feeling of traveling back in time. Discover traditional homes in the local village, and catch sights of farmers busy working the fertile soils.

During your exploration of the island, pay a visit to its famous silk farm. Delve into the centuries-old method of producing silk as you witness each step of the process, with your guide offering insightful commentary along the way. Then, discover the array of silk products in the shop, all beautifully handcrafted onsite. After ample time to browse, finish out your day with the trip back into the city.

A great and informative tour with an informed and thoroughly knowledgeable guide. The driver was great, as well, navigating through some of the worse traffic I have ever seen, but it was all worth it to see this enchanting little island and the silk that is transformed into wonderful and beautiful material.

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and accomodating.We were picked up at our hotel on time. The guide on the silk tour took us step- by- step through the silk making process with demonstrations. We observed women spinning and weaving the silk which was also for sale in their shop on the premises. They gave us as much time as we wanted to explore and observe. The guide also took us to a Wat and we had the opportunity to observe and interact. All in all it was a great educational experience
