Leave your hotel in Siem Reap and travel by coach to Kampong Cham where you board your boat for the seven night cruise. But before setting sail you are taken to the Twin Mountains, known as Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei.

Later, join fellow guests for a welcome dinner on board.

Here people still live in traditional wooden stilt houses and keep their old cultural heritage alive. Then sail on to Oknhatey or 'Silk Island' on the banks of the Mekong River, which is known for its rich tradition of silk weaving. While here, visit an elementary school and see the weavers at work.
