Kratie Classic Lifestyle Day Trip Including Dolphin Cruise
From US$ 63.00
Venture off the tourist trail and experience life in rural Cambodia on this full-day tour from Kratie. Ride on the back of a scooter, tour a sugar plantation and watch locals making palm sugar, Khmer noodles and rice whisky. Tuck into home-cooked Cambodian cuisine as you stop for lunch (included) in a traditional Cambodian family home, then set sail across the Mekong in search of the rare Mekong River dolphins.
What to Expect
Start your day at 9am by traveling on a motorbike out of Kratie on the Old River Road, passing through a Vietnamese and Wat Rokakandal towards the ferry crossing point. As you wait for the ferry you can enjoy looking over to a floating village on the Mekong.
Having arrived on the west bank, visit attractions such as tobacco building, seasonal crops, and a local Wat; learn how palm sugar is being produced in the season and relax alongside beautiful rice paddies, the perfect opportunity for photos. You might be able to try some delicious, freshly pressed sugar cane juice, a must for those with a sweet tooth.
Then, you'll visit a local family's home, where you can experience true rural Cambodian life living on the banks of the Mekong. You'll try traditional Cambodian food, home cooked over a wood fire. The meal will be cooked with local delicious fresh ingredients from the surrounding area, and fruit straight from our orchard. After lunch take time to relax and ask any questions you might have about Cambodian life, while sitting inside a traditional stilted wooden home.
Before returning to another ferry crossing, there are also opportunities to experience Khmer noodle and rice whisky making.
Then, you'll catch the Rusey Cha ferry across the Mekong and head to Kampi, one of the many deep pools where the rare river dolphins gather to feed. Board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance encounter with these gentle mammals. Viewing is guaranteed. After enjoying an hour or more of dolphin viewing, you'll travel back to Kratie for the end of your tour.
