River trips around Kompong Cham


There are several interesting places within the vicinity of Kompong Cham that can be reached by boat and make for a rewarding day out if there are a few of you to share the cost – although note that most of these sites can also be reached more cheaply by moto or tuk-tuk. Trips can be arranged through Mekong Crossing, with possible destinations including Wat Maha Leap (about 20km south of Kompong Cham), an old wooden building with gilded teak columns; Prei Chung Kran village (just upstream from Maha Leap temple on the Tonle Tuok), where silk is woven on traditional hand looms; and Wat Hann Chey, about 20km north of Kompong Cham, where there are fantastic river views from Chenla-era ruins and a modern temple.
