"Mekong" Countryside Tip by pmarshuk

Countryside, Phnom Penh: 2 reviews and 2 photos


I wanted to take a boat ride up the Mekong to visit an island where a lot of weaving is done. However due to the lack of tourists around the trip was canceled, so I arranged with my usual Motodup driver to go by motorcycle instead. It was a long dusty trip but you get to see the villages of real Cambodia.
The Mekong is the greatest river in South East Asia, here's a picture taken from the ferry to the island showing the river in the dry season.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
