Located just a short drive and ferry trip across the Mekong River, Silk Island is like stepping back in time. For those looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. With farmers busy working the rich fertile soils and villages with traditional housing the island provides a fascinating look at Cambodian life removed from the western influences. The center pieces of the tour are a visit to the working silk farm the island is named for and the unique Coconut School run by local volunteers and built from recycled material and what many think of as rubbish.
