Private Koh Dach Bike Tour from Phnom Penh

About this activity
After you’re picked up by private vehicle from your Phnom Penh hotel in the morning, get acquainted with the features of your bike. Follow your private guide over the Tonle Sap River and cycle along the riverbank past communities of the Cham ethnic-minority group. You'll catch a ferry across the Mekong River to Koh Dach, known as Silk Island, where village artisans make their living weaving silk into beautiful creations.

(Note: The total cycling distance you'll cover is approximately 15 miles (25 km) over mostly flat ground, so a basic level of fitness is necessary. Alternatively, you can arrange to transfer to the ferry by minivan and begin your bicycle tour on the island.)

When you arrive at Koh Dach, a typical Khmer village, marvel at the houses built high on stilts with workshops below. Meet some of the families that still maintain the old traditions of hand looming silk and dying it with bright hues. You’ll be amazed by the homemade spinning wheels made from old bicycle parts!

Watch as the silk is transformed from a cotton-like texture into thread, and try your hand at weaving if you’d like. Before hopping back on your bike, you can browse for silk items available for purchase directly from the villagers.

Visit the local temple, Wat Chung Koh, and have a chat with local monks before cycling a short distance to a picnic spot for lunch. Enjoy Khmer-style dishes until you hop back on your bike for the return to Phnom Penh in the afternoon, when your private guide drops you off at your hotel.
