Leave the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh behind as you jump in a tuk-tuk (a type of auto rickshaw) and travel over the Japanese Bridge and into the countryside. Pass through rural settings and by roadside stalls selling everything from paper-mache animals to steamed corn. Then board a barge that will take you across the river and onto Mekong Island. 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.

For most of the year it is hot in Cambodia. There will be opportunities to purchase water or bring a supply with you. Please keep hydrated and wear sunscreen and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.
Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate.
