    Some of the tour guides and online forums suggests the bridge is a thing of the past. Not so. We crossed over and back today, 13 June 2020. Credit to bamboo engineering. More of a tourist thing now than a practical thing but fun and costs 2000 Riel as the bridge no longer takes Tuktuk’s or moto’s. Nothing stated (in english) but 2000 is the both ways cost! In comparison we sat for an hour in a chair under a thatched umbrella to escape the heat and enjoy watching local fisherman and that set us back $5. With the lack of tourists in a post Covid economy we really didn’t mind either cost.

    Wonderful old temple slightly of the beaten track. The temple had many door leading into other sections. It felt much older than some of the other temples we had seen.

    On short notice Aline set up a tour for myself and my sister. Firstly her knowledge of the village is amazing. It was evident she had a huge amount of passion and that everyone in the village valued and appreciated her back! When we arrived she was finishing up a school class. The work that she is doing is brilliant and deserves to be recognised and visited. By visiting you are supporting the community to keep on with the work they are doing! You can even buy beautiful products at there shop! A must place to visit!

    Our tour commenced with two novice monks giving our group a blessing. The chanting sounds echoed around the pagoda and it was quite mesmerising. At the end we were individually bless by the young monks and given a bracelet which carries the blessing. Our guide interacted with a young monk and he explained his life to us and we were able to ask questions, it was very interesting how these young men give their lives to Buddhism. The hilltop pagoda and monastery had colourful buildings and the local residents and children mingled among us. We were allowed to see where the monks ate and a traditional day for them was explained to us. Very long staircase down to the river in the design of a serpent. Anyone with walking difficulties will need transportation.

    We visited the multiple mausoleums, which itself was stunning. The highlight of the tour was the 2 Buddhas, which were a site to see, also because of the size. The Gardens had multiple figurines, all of were decorated in colourful colours.
    Worth a visit if one is in the area.

    We all hired bikes, crossed the bamboo bridge, an experience itself, and spent the day riding around the island, talking to locals, waving at the children who ran out to see us, even popped into a temple along the way. Beautiful rural Cambodia can be found here. Plenty of fresh fruit sold at roadside stalls too. Well worth the day out :)

    I took a tuk-tuk out to this pagoda. I had a wander around the grounds but unfortunately the main wooden pagoda was closed and locked up. I don't know if this is a regular occurrence or if I just arrived at the wrong time, but it was a bit disappointing.

    I never felt unsafe on the climb, although let’s be clear, it’s a climb and I’m not sure would be good for young children. Use the stair above for hand holds and not the single rail and you’ll feel more secure. The second set of stairs have some flex but then so does a Boeing wing. The view at the top is worth the climb.

    No cost, no tourist vendors at top or bottom. Good free outing!

    Ask your hotel to call Sou Phal when in Kampong Cham. He is a delightful host who speaks both English and French. I wanted to see Wat Maha Leap and the silk weaving village. He took me to both places, but also stopped along the way to show me other interesting sites and share his culture with me. It was a great day!

    I went on an all day tour with Mr. Chhay. He speaks English and was very flexible in arranging the tour. We first went to Prey Chung Kram where they make silk. Then we saw the Wooden Pagoda and visited the French Tower. After lunch we saw three Buddhist Temples as well as the Bamboo Bridge. I found it very interesting and Mr Chhay very knowledgable of the area and willing to take me anywhere I wanted to go. If you are in KC, you should tour with Mr Chhay. I made the contact through the Mekong Sunrise Restaurant.
