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! Driving around in a Tuk Tuk and visiting various places on the islands. Weaving Commune is worth spending time, informative presentation of the process how to produce silk. In the end we had a chill time with the guide in a Julie Coffee cafe! Highly recommend!

Great trip with an excellent guide! Ideal for a short break from the city and a wonderful chance to see and appreciate the skill and craftsmanship of these artisans.
Great experience

This was a great way to experience a different part of Phnom Penh! The tour was about 4 hours, of which we spent about an hour sitting with a silk weaver and learning about the process, and another 1.5 hours seeing the rest of the island. Would definitely recommend to others.
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.
