Lovely way to spend a few hours cruising along the river. Great photo opportunites of fishing and rural life by the water. Guide is the boat owner and lives on the river. Well worthwhile.

Our group had 10 people so we had the special rate from this boat. The family meal was delicious and hearty. We loved it most at the “bamboo corner” where we had a nice backgroudn for the phototaking.

My wife and I, took this cruise up the river to see the real Cambodia. It was such a nice trip for an hour. We took some of our best pictures of the Cambodian Countryside and people. Very relaxing and great service.
