Stop 1: Paddy Fields
Our tour begins with a bike ride to the sprawling fields of paddy, where your guides will introduce you to the day-to-day routines of local farmers. Many of our guides will be able to give you an in depth insight into this agricultural activity, having worked in the fields with their parents from a young age.
Stop 2: Handmade Baskets
On our next stop, we will take you to view handmade baskets woven by our local villagers. Get to know our weavers and learn more about this intricate craft, which is traditionally passed down from parent to child.
Stop 3: Local Market
Our third stop will be at a bustling local market, where you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of locals buying and selling produce. Discover local products not found anywhere else in the world!
Stop 4: Local Dinner, Homestay
By now, it will be time to wind down. Your guides will check you in to your local homestay. Once you have settled in, your guides will then head out to market to purchase ingredients for dinner. You are more than welcome to join them as they pick out vegetables and local delights. Back at the homestay, you will be able to enjoy a cooking class and eat a truly local Cambodian meal! We will end the night early, between 8.00PM—9.00PM, just as the village goes quiet.
Stop 5: Rice Wine
After a good night’s rest, we will take you to a local rice wine distillery. Here, you will learn more about the processes involved in the making of rice wine as well as its use in holistic medication. And yes—if you’re wondering—you will also get to sample a taste!
Stop 6: Pagoda
On our final stop, we begin Day 2 of our tour with a light breakfast, before cycling to a pagoda. Take in the morning breeze and enjoy the peace and stillness of the pagoda, which holds great religious and cultural significance to the local Cambodian-Buddhist community.
