We came here to learn about the silk of Cambodia. I think the shop's prices were high-I'm not sure if everything they sell is actually made there. I agree with another reviewer that the animals they keep have terrible conditions-sad.

If you like cycling hire a bike in Phnom Penh and take the ferry....makes an interesting half day. You can then cycle around the island easily. Interesting to see the silk making process. Keeping crocodiles in a confined space is cruel and unnecessary. If you...More

Most tourists visit “silk island” to tour the silk weaving factory. You will need to hire a tuk tuk to take you there since you need to take a small ferry across the Tonle Sap River. The ferry itself is very primitive, but interesting if...More

A trip to Koh Dach Island is about 1 hour each way from PP Central, including a ferry crossing. It is possible to go by a private car, tuk tuk or a bicycle. Unlike many artisan villages, this one is still pretty much a home...More

Cross the Tonle Sap river and took a ferry across the Mekong River. Suggest to take a bicycle (if you can bear cycling under the hot sun) or a tuk-tuk from Phnom Penh. First visit should be the village on the island. You can see...More

Everything went well until we saw the animals in super tiny cages, no water and nothing that resembles their natural habitat. Just a concrete floor and a fence. It ruined the whole experience for us. It's not a zoo so there's no reason to have...More
