Brilliant day out

The most memorable part of our trip to Phnon Penh over the Khmer New Year. Our guide, one of the owners of the business, was a really lovely, patient, knowledgeable and professional guy for whom nothing was too much trouble. The lunch included in the tour was the best we had in Cambodia! Highly recommend this tour and tour company.
Perfect outing to get away from Phnom Penh madness...

A later pick-up at our hotel was negotiated with the tour operator, so that we could enjoy our breakfast. As it turned out, we had the entire boat to ourselves which was wonderful, and our English-speaking guide was both entertaining and informative. They normally provide unlimited beer and soft drinks, but since we do not drink beer, they gladly offered to stop and buy wine for us. That was a very nice gesture, but we were good and drank water the entire day...so much healthier for us. Fresh fruits were served both going up river and down. Taking in the scenes along the banks of the Tonle Sap River was really fun and educational. Although the first stop at Koh Chen Island and the village of silversmiths was not without additional voluntary monetary outlay, the silver handicrafts were astoundingly beautiful and will serve as special holiday gifts in December.

After a brief lunch stop to enjoy a sampling of local cuisine, we were off to experience the former Cambodian royal capital city of Oudong, as well as the largest Buddhist center in the country. We took our time climbing up to see the burial sites of former kings, but the views from atop were spectacular and worth the effort. And the return boat ride was especially nice after the long day to just hang out, hydrate and relax. It was the perfect outing to get away from the madness which is Phnom Penh.
Beautiful day in Oudong

Every thing was very nice except the docking areas for the boat were very difficult to climb up and down

Was wonderful to us
Day trip to Oudong

We had a fantastic day trip with Chamnap to Oudong. We were the only couple on the trip so it was more like a personal tour. We were picked up on time by Tuk Tuk and taken to the boat. The trip up river took longer than we thought, but it allowed time for Chamnap to give us lots of information and answer our questions. We had a demonstration of making silver at Koh Chen island and there was no pressure to buy. We then went for lunch at a local restaurant. Chamnap checked for dietary needs in advance. The tour round Oudong was amazing, the walk up is quite steep but there are plenty of places to stop and rest and admire the view. We even saw a troop of Macaque monkeys on the way down. The boat trip back was quicker as we had the tide with us. Cold drinks were available throughout the day. It was a long day but most enjoyable and Chamnap was an excellent guide.
Lovely day

Lovely day. Cruise up the river seeing the world go by. The houses on stilts, fish farms etc. Then to the silver workers. Nice lunch and gentle cruise back. Excellent guide, skipper and tuk tuk driver. Thanks for a lovely day David
