Phnom-Penh-Tour   At 8: 00 am: we start with an educational experience about Cambodia's past. You’ll visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school that served as a Khmer Rouge torture center. Then, head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields.

Afterwards, enjoying a Khmer lunch.


Phnom-Penh-Tour2After lunch, you’ll travel by moto-remork (a Cambodian tuk-tuk) and cross the Japanese Friendship Bridge leaving Phnom Penh to catch a ferry across the Mekong River to Mekong Island. The island is famous for silk weaving, agriculture, and aquaculture. We'll stop to see the silk weavers at work in the village, where you can purchase some of the local products if you wish. As you wander the village, you can explore a Buddhist temple and floating fish farms, see fields of rice and morning glory, and enjoy local Khmer snacks at a family home.


Leave the tuk-tuk behind and board a boat to enjoy the sunset from the water at the junction of the Tonle Bassac, Tonle Sap, and the Mekong. You’ll see the distinctive architecture of Cambodia, with Khmer-influenced buildings such as Wat Ounalom, the Royal Palace, and the Silver Pagoda, as well as French colonial buildings — some renovated, some ravaged by neglect and the war.

Finally, we close off the Mekong boat tour with a gorgeous sunset, and return you back to your hotel.
