If you would like to see rural scenes in Cambodia near Phnom Penh, this half-day tour is thoroughtly recommended. I spent really good quality time. As other reviewers wrote you can see silk weavers, markets, temples, vegetable fields etc in the island. I bought a beautiful silk stole there from one of them at a low price. Especially I was so impressed when the guide Visal told me how Khmer language was taught a century ago in this country and show the statue of Chuon Nath put up in the elementary school, who wrote the Khmer dictionary.

We were picked up from our hotel and travelled to Silk Island on tuk tuk. At the Silk Centre on the island, local resident showed how the silk material is made, from the moth laying the eggs to the finished products. As travelling on tuk tuk we were able to see the island’s nice spots and stopped at various places. Our tour guide Visal was great, knowledgeable and friendly. He was informative with a wonderful sense of humour and gave us an enjoyable tour. We highly recommend this tour for the excursion to the Silk Island.

Thank you for a very interesting and informative tour to Silk Island by tuk tuk. I am very pleased I booked this tour. Thank you to my guide, Visal and driver Chiv, both of whom were thoughtful and courteous. My tour was confirmed the day before, I was picked up from my accommodation on time and we travelled to Silk Island. We visited the Silk Centre on the island, seeing and learning how silk material is made, from the moth laying the eggs to the finished products. There was also plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The tour was flexible, so that as we travelled along the road, we were able to stop at different places, for example, when I wanted to see different crops being farmed to find out more about the crops and farming, such as taro and ginger. We also visited a river beach. I was brought back to my accommodation at the end of the tour. Visal was very informative and answered my questions. Travelling by tuk tuk meant that it was easy to see and to stop at different places as we travelled. The freshly cooked, locally grown corn was delicious. Thank you again to Visal and Chiv. You made it a memorable tour for me.

This tour is AMAZING. Book it NOW. Don't hesitate. I am so happy that I did. At the time when I booked the tour, this day trip only had one (very positive) review. The description (incorrectly) makes this tour sound like a food tour but this was actually a culture and location excursion tour. I trusted my gut and booked it hoping that it wasn’t a food tour, and it wasn’t. This was a very authentic local experience to visit various parts of an island via tuk tuk. It was that, and much more! Such a good value. I hope more tourists know about Silk Island in the future and go on this specific tour. When I booked the tour, the operator Baboon messaged me to confirm pick up times and location details. When I was picked up, I met with my guide for the day named Sophy and my tuk tuk driver Sothea. Sophy provided such an informative and thrilling tour. I learned about silkworm farming and silk weaving. He also took me to see the island's many amenities, such as tribal huts, beach fronts, picnic areas etc. Sophy offered to take pictures of me everywhere we went. I didn't even ask most of the time, he just offered and the pictures turned out perfect. On top of that, Sophy and Sothea took me around via tuk tuk and let me visit multiple farms, such as ginger, cilantro, pepper, taro. Sophy is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide, and not only did I learn a lot from him, I also really enjoyed my time with him. I think all in all Sophy and Sothea might have taken me to two islands (not sure if that's normal or if I got lucky). They drove by a variety of local villages and Sophy provided a good amount of interesting context. I had such a good time with both Sophy and Sothea that I invited them to have lunch with me. The next day Baboon followed up to hear how everything went, which was a nice finishing touch. If you are looking to get out of the city, and thinking about going to the islands and local villages.... BOOK THIS NOW 😁😁😁

Had a fun half day riding on a new Cannondale bike to Silk Island. My guide Pisey was a wonderful guide who lives in the area, knows the history of the island and was constantly attentive to my safety. At first, I was a little nervous about a 25km ride but it was mostly over flat terrain although on the occasional rough or muddy roads. This trip takes you out of the noise and frenzy of Phnom Penh city and puts you into what seems like another world of jungle, temples, farmers, and weavers. Our Silk Island destination gave me the opportunity to watch silk being woven and to purchase items made on-site at much-reduced prices from shops in town. I highly recommend this getaway to calm yourself in a world apart. I can't say enough about young Pisey as a great guide for an enjoyable day.

The tour of Silk Island by tuk-tuk is beautiful and original. On site, they explain the entire process of making silk fabric to us. It's interesting. However, at the end of the visit, at the store, we were offered a $25 scarf that we all bought. Later, in Siem Reap, we found the same scarves, priced at $6. Silk island is a real scam, the same product is sold 4 times more expensive. Take the tour which is interesting but don't buy anything.

Petite visite sympa en dehors de Phnom Penh. On visite une manufacture de soie traditionnelle dans un petit village sur une île près de Phnom Penh. On nous explique toute les étapes de la fabrication de vêtements en soie de la culture de ver à soie au confection grâce au métier a tisser. J'ai passé un bon moment que se soit avec le guide qui parlait français sur place ou que ce soit avec le guide et le conducteur qui sont venus me chercher. Je recommande grandement
