Before starting that cruise, we recommend a visit to Phnom Penh. Our tours Phnom Penh-Angkor show you the visits not to be missed in the capital and you choose the length that suits you best. We take care of your stay since your arrival flight till the departure of the cruise.
Day 1 - Phnom Penh – Kôh Chen/Oudong
12:00 Toum Tiou is open for embarking. Departure of the Toum Tiou for Kôh Chen (Chinese Island). Security briefing. Lunch on board
15:00 Arrival at Kôh Chen, small village of whose inhabitants specialize in silver and copper smiting. They make ornamental items, including delicately engraved tropical fruits, used in traditional ceremonies at the pagoda or for marriages. The distant hills of Cambodia's old capital, Oudong, and its royal stupas can be seen a few kilometers away from the ferry. At the top of the hill, the ruins of Anthareu temple.
18:400 Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou towards Kampong Tralach. The Toum Tiou drops anchor few miles away.
19:00 Welcome drink and info meeting about cruise, crew introduction. Welcome dinner. Overnight onboard.
Day 2 - Kampong Tralach - Kampong Chnang
07:30 Breakfast onboard. Departure for Kampong Tralach to visit its wonderful Vihara belonging to Wat Kampong Tralach Leu pagoda. To get to it, we cross Kampong Tralach Krom village along a small road perpendicular to the river, crossing some gorgeous stretches of emerald rice paddy as we leave the river behind.
The Vihara dates back to early last century. It was probably built on an older site, as indicated by the latérite foundations, and is home to some outstanding mural paintings. These, however, are starting to suffer from weathering. They remain one of the last survivors of cultural destruction that continues unabated due to widespread indifference. Standing by itself in the middle of rice fields, it is a modest pagoda that receives very few visitors. Its isolation may well be its undoing, as was the case for Wat Tani Pagoda in the province of Kampot.
10:30 Back to Toum Tiou II, sail to Kampong Chnang. Lunch during navigation.
14:30 Arrival to Kampong Chnang. Located some 56 miles from Phnom Penh, the town of Kampong Chnang is one of the largest fishing ports on the Tonlé Sap. Fish farming is also widely practiced in the area. The area is famous for its pottery ware, unchanged in style for centuries, which is produced in sufficient quantities to supply the entire country. And not to be overlooked are the products of the Thnot tree (sugar palm – a real national symbol) that abounds in the area: a mellow tasting, caramel-colored sugar sold in large cakes and palm wine.
18:00 Passengers re-embark, the Toum Tiou II sails to the Great Tonle Sap lake.
19:00 Dinner. Overnight on board.
