The Itinerary

2 Days / 1 Night

Day 1: West Bank of the Mekong & Homestay (-/L/D)
We start our day at 8:30 AM by cycling south out of Kratie on the Old River Road towards Te River. Along the way we pass through a Vietnamese and Wat Rokakandal; a unique 400 years old wood carving on the roof of this temple gives you a good photo shot. As we wait for the ferry we can enjoy looking over to a floating village on the Mekong.

Having arrived on the west bank, we will visit attractions such as tobacco building, seasonal crops, Wat; learn how palm sugar is being produced in the season and relax alongside beautiful rice paddies, the perfect opportunity for photos. We might be able to try some delicious, freshly pressed sugar cane juice, A must for those with a sweet tooth.

We spend a lunch break in a local family’s home. As our cycling tour continues further and further through many rural villages, villagers especially kids are friendlier. Great smiles with the greeting word “HELLO! HELLO!” they look to you like famous people or people of the day. There are opportunities to see local productions such as rice whiskey and rice noodles; stop for refreshing drinks along the way; relax and refresh your body with a swim at a secret and beautiful Mekong beaches rewarded by many Mekong green Islands in season (January-May).

In the evening, we will be welcomed in another family who lives on the bank of the Mekong River for an overnight stay and served an evening meal. You will experience true rural Cambodian life by meeting local’s family with a personal touch; taste a portion of traditional Cambodian food, home-cooked over a wood fire. The meal will be cooked with local delicious fresh ingredients from the surrounding area, and fruit straight from our orchard. Tonight, you will have an overnight stay in a traditional Cambodian home under a mosquito net at one of the local families who live on the bank of the Mekong River; experience bucket shower like Khmer people.
