About
Located just a short drive and ferry trip across the Mekong River, Silk Island is like stepping back in time. For those looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. With farmers busy working the rich fertile soils and villages with traditional housing the island provides a fascinating look at Cambodian life removed from the western influences. The center pieces of the tour are a visit to the working silk farm the island is named for and the unique Coconut School run by local volunteers and built from recycled material and what many think of as rubbish.

Great trip to rural Cambodia
We had a very inspiring and pleasant trip to the islands on the other side of Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers. Our guide Piseta gave us great insights of the rural art of living and we highly recommend this trip. It is an excellent opportunity to start your day in the busy town in a calm environment. The tour is easy for average bikers.

Crocodile cruise to Silk island
5 star treatment on cruise and a warm welcome by Nara to the silk farm and weaving house. Well worth the trip and reasonably priced silk scarves.
