Oudong by car and boat
- Full Day
This morning embark on a local boat cruises up Tonle Sap River to Udong, one of the country’s main waterways. Pass riverside villages and fishermen on the way, gaining a deeper appreciation for the Cambodian’s reliance on rivers for transport and food. You will have a cocktail with appetizers during the boat trip and a BBQ lunch set with French red or white wine will be served on board.

Then, climb the stairs to the top of Oudong Mountain and enjoy magnificent views over the plains below. Your guide will explain the history of the area and its buildings as well as the religious culture of the Cambodian people. Take your time to soak in the magnificent views over the plains below.

Before heading to Phnom Penh stop at the spectacular Vipassana Dhura Buddhist Meditation Center. Your guide can explain more about the school of Vipassana (Insight Meditation) as you tour the center, before taking part in a meditation class with one of the teachers.
Don’t forget to see the impressive jade Buddha, the mummified monk and the brightly painted walls telling the story of the Ramayana, the epic Sanskrit poem that decorates many pagodas seen around the country.


On the way back to Phnom Penh by car, you will also visit Kompong Luong, a village famous for its silversmiths. The traditional craft has been passed down from generation to generation. Watch as the skilled silversmiths create cups, bowls and other items using age-old techniques. (L)
