What to Expect
Start the day with a transfer to a small provincial town located 1.5 hours north-west of Phnom Penh known as Kampong Chhnang, meaning “Port of Pottery”. It is famous for its beautiful landscape, iconic sugar palm trees that dot the landscape and where local villages produce pottery in the midst of the rice fields.
The town is also home to one of the larger floating villages on the lake which is predominantly inhabited by Vietnamese traders, which you will visit upon arrival. Visit a local floating home and enjoy a drink with your host and learn about how life is lived on the water.
Return to the mainland and transfer to Phnom Touch. Touch means small in Khmer and this tiny hill located near a modern pagoda offers stunning vistas over the Tonle Sap Lake. Enjoy a picnic lunch in this picturesque setting before heading over sandy roads and through paddy fields to the pottery villages.
Learn how the community makes pottery the traditional way and observe how sugar is collected from the palm trees.
