Islands of the Mekong Bike Tour from Phnom Penh
"It's hard to imagine that only 5km from the heart of Cambodia's capital city there is an island oasis where one can take a bike ride at a gentle pace and discover true rural Cambodia. The Silk Islands created by the flows of the Mekong River are isolated by the lack of bridges but ferry connections provide easy access for villagers who use the fertile soil here to grow fruit and vegetables and then weave silk and cotton in between farming cycles. The absence of most four wheeled traffic makes for a peaceful ride where making this a truly family friendly experience.You'll enjoy the many stops at pagoda's farms and for a silk weaving demonstration. And lunch is included before transferring back to central Phnom Penh."""

Located in a fabulous old build the Museum is filled with art and artifacts dating back to the pre-Angkorian era.
