Toum Tiou II - Phnom Penh to Siem Reap Cruise

This 3-day tour is a short but delightful cruise allowing you an insight into the fascinating Cambodian river life as you journey the Tonle Sap River, and across the vast Tonle Sap Lake, South East Asia's largest. Explore remote riverside villages as well as those who live on the river in remarkable floating villages.

Built in 2008 in Saigon, the 28-passenger Toum Tiou II offers cruises between Vietnam and Cambodia on the Mekong River. The vessel's understated elegance is reflected in the harmonious blend of colonial style and traditional design, which lends the Toum Tiou II a sophisticated yet charming ambiance. With spacious public areas that offer uninterrupted views, guests can admire the sights and sounds of the mighty Mekong while sunbathing on the roof patio or enjoying dinner and a drink in the half-covered bar and restaurant.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Cruise Oudong & Kompong Tralach
Start early as you board the Toum Tiou at 7.45am and set sail at 8am. After a short while the first stop is the idyllic island of Koh Chen, also known as Chinese Island. The island's villagers specialize in silver and copper ware. They make ornamental items, including delicately engraved tropical fruits, used in traditional ceremonies at pagodas or for weddings. The distant hills of Cambodia's old capital, Oudong, and its royal stupas can be seen a few kilometers away. Afterwards you set sail for Kompong Tralach and its wonderful vihara belonging to Wat Kompong Tralach Leu pagoda. To reach it involves a stroll through Kompong Tralach Krom village then crossing some gorgeous stretches of emerald rice paddies as you leave the river behind. As the sun sets you return to the Toum Tiou II, cruise a short distance before dropping anchor and getting treated to a delicious 'Welcome' dinner.

Meals included: L, D

Day 2: Cruise from Kompong Chhnang to Chnok Tru
The Toum Tiou II sets sail in the early morning and soon arrives in the town of Kompong Chhnang, which is one of the largest fishing ports on the Tonle Sap. Although fish farming is widely practiced in the area, Kompong Chhnang is better known for its pottery and earthenware which has remained unchanged in style for centuries, and which is produced in sufficient quantities to supply the entire country. And not to be overlooked are the products of the Thnot tree (the sugar palm – a real national symbol) that abounds in the area, such as the mellow tasting, caramel-colored sugar cake and the potentially potent sugar palm wine. After some sightseeing the Toum Tiou II continues to Chnok Tru, the biggest floating market on the Tonle Sap. Local boats will come alongside and sail you around this fascinating, remote, floating town. Here you will see a floating school, floating pagodas, service stations, stores, karaoke bars, a police station and much more; everything is floating on the water. This evening the Toum Tiou II drops anchor amidst the enchanting flooded forest, if water levels allow. Enjoy refreshing cocktails and the Captain's farewell dinner.

Meals included: B, L, D

Day 3: Cruise from Chnok Tru to Siem Reap
This morning you cruise across the Tonle Sap Lake, via speedboat if the water level is low, passing more floating villages before reaching Siem Reap port at around 1pm, leaving the Toum Tiou II with many fascinating experiences and wonderful memories! Please note, if the water levels are very low (between March to June) passengers will be transferred to Siem Reap overland.
