Day 2: KOMPONG CHNANG-KOMPONG TRALACH
Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
07:00   Departure of the Toum Tiou early in the morning. Sail to Kampong Chnang by passing near Chnok Tru, the first big village after the River meets the Great Lake of Tonlé Sap. Breakfast during navigation.
09:00   Arrival to Kampong Chnang. Located some 56 miles 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. 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.
11:30   Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou. Lunch on board on the way to Kampong Tralach
15:30   Arrival at 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 last May for Wat Tani Pagoda in the province of Kampot.
17:30   Passengers re-embark. The Toum Tiou drops anchor few miles away.
19:00   Farewell cocktail (1 glass of local liquor or juice) with Master of Ship & Cruise Manager. Captain’s farewell dinner (Enriched menu + 1 glass of wine). Overnight on board.
Day 3: KOH CHEN/UDONG-PHNOM PENH
Breakfast/Lunch
07:00   Early departure by Toum Tiou. Sail to Kôh Chen (Chinese Island)
08:30   Arrive in Kôh Chen, small village whose inhabitants are specialized silver and copper smiths. 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.
11:30   Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou. Lunch on board on the way to Phnom Penh.
13:00   Arrive in Phnom Penh. Transfer to hotel or airport.
