Full description

Stroll on the banks of the Mekong in support of the disadvantaged kids of Taramana A five-hour trip, only one hour’s boat trip from Phnom Penh, which dazzle you! Come and discover the beauty of the country-side along the majestic Mekong river as well as the activities of the seasonal crops of the inhabitants at Lvea Em, ten kilometers south-east of Phnom Penh and three other villages made up essentially of fishermen and farmers. You leave with a French-and English-speaking guide from the center of Phnom Penh by boat at the beginning of the morning or at the beginning of the afternoon. As soon as you arrive in Lvea Em, a Tuk Tuk will take you to visit a typical Cambodian school and a drinking water production unit. Then you will discover the production process of papyrus mats so that you can see how this traditional activity enables some families to generate revenue. Afterwards, you can watch the spectacular technics of the harvesting of palm sap. This produces sugar and palm wine. Finally, according to the season, you could also admire the production and harvesting of rice. Over and above supporting the NGO Taramana, which works with the children from a slum area in Phnom Penh, this fantastic river trip will allow each family that you meet to benefit from a financial payment which is included in the price of the tour. A meal on the boat is included on the way back from a trip which will delight you through its charm and authenticity. Drinks are available for an aperitif and to quench your thirst. And if you decide to take the excursion during the afternoon, the return trip to Phnom Penh will be made sailing on the slow torrents of the Mekong while watching the sunset (with a bit of luck that the weather is favorable) which will take your breath away.
