Cycling is the best way to give you a sense of local Cambodian village life. You can explore the forest and countryside in this quiet area, along roads that are very easy to ride and safe. We will  meet local people directly and see how they live, work and eat. Cambodian people are very friendly and enjoy meeting tourists, so you will be warmly welcomed with their smiles and “Hello” when they meet you. We will see how local vegetables and fruit trees are grown and get to sample their produce. You will also see the local village school and a pagoda where the monks live and worship.

 Afternoon

Stop 4: Making rice wine

Rice wine is the traditional alcohol for local people. It is made using traditional methods from rice and yeast, being fermented for few days in clay jars before being distilled.

 Stop 5: Khmer scarf making

Khmer scarves are made using large wooden manual looms. Watch the locals create the detailed patterns on scarves, weaving cotton threads together, quickly and with great skill.  Have a go at weaving yourself and get to wear a traditional Khmer scarf.

Stop 6: Making dried bananas

Watch the locals slice the bananas patiently into thin pieces and dry them under the sun. These delicious snacks are a result of a family business where everyone helps in the process before selling the products to locals.

Stop 7: Making fish paste ( Prohok)

The fish paste market is where we see how Cambodians make this vital ingredient. Before the fermented paste is finally ready to be eaten, it has to be stored in large pots and preserved for many months. We will also see the locals drying other kinds of fish that come in interesting colors.

Stop 8: Making bamboo sticky rice (Kro Lan)

This healthy and well-known snack, cooked in pieces of fresh bamboo, is enjoyed by local travelers and farmers. It is often seen for sale on road side stalls.
