Day 1: Phnom Penh - Kôh Chen - Oudong

12:00 Toum Tiou is open for embarking. Security briefing. Lunch on boat on the way to Kôh Chen (Chinese Island).
15:00 Arrival to 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.
18:00 Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou. Leaving Kôh Chen to Kampong Tralach. Toum Tiou drops anchor close to village.
19:30 Welcome drink and info meeting about cruise, crew introduction. Welcome dinner. Overnight on boat.
 

Day 2: Kampong Tralach - Kampong Chnang

07:30 Breakfast during navigation, 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 Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou. Lunch on boat on the way to Kampong Chnang.
14:30 Arrival at Kampong Chnang. Visit the village and its environment. Located some 90 kilometers 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 Re-embarking the boat, Toum Tiou leaves Kanpong Chnang, direction the Tonle Sap Lake. Toum Tiou drops anchor for overnight at the entrance of the Grand Lake Tonle Sap.
19:00 Dinner and overnight on boat.
 

Day 3: Chnok Trou - Siem Reap

07:00 Breakfast during navigation. 08:00 Passengers embark local boats.
Almost totally overlooked by tourists because of its remoteness and difficult access, the village is completely self-sufficient.
