We pick you up from you hotel in town and travel out of Kratie on the Old River Road, passing through a Vietnamese and Wat Rokakandal towards the ferry crossing point. 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.

Then, we visit to local family’s home, where you can experience true rural Cambodian life, and meet local’s family, living on the banks of the Mekong. Here you will try 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. After lunch take time to relax and ask any questions you might have about Cambodian life, while sitting inside a traditional stilted wooden home.
Before returning to another ferry crossing, there are also opportunities to experience Khmer noodle and rice whisky making.
Then, we catch Rusey Cha ferry across the Mekong and head not to Kampi, one of the many deep pools where the rare river dolphins gather to feed. We board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance encounter with these gentle mammals. Viewing is guaranteed.

What our  Customers say

I took the 1-day classic West bank tour, which lasted about 6-7 hours riding behind a motorbike. If you want to see what life in the countryside is like, this is the perfect tour! We saw a floating Vietnamese village, baby dolphins, crop fields and a typical Cambodian lunch meal. The guide Sithy gave a lot of information about life in Cambodia, the people, the history and religion. The service was excellent, right from being picked up upon reaching Kratie to being dropped off at the end of my stay. I really enjoyed it very much, thanks Sithy!

The best tourin Cambodia! Ben met us at our guesthouse and we agreed the tour and the start time. 7.30 am as we wanted to miss the late afternoon heat. Ben met us with a friend and we had a magnificent tour on the back of motorcycles. Ben is a quietly spoken person, very knowledgeable and client service centric. We had a magnificent tour around Kratie, visited farms, Sithy’s house, Rice noodle home industry, palm sugar making and much more. We stopped for lunch – but when Ben heard we were vegetarians he drove on and treated us to freshly fried Yams and Bananas – YUM.
