Toum Tiou’s steel hull and sleek low draft make it the only true vessel that sails the Mekong. Toum Tiou and its sister vessel, Toum Tiou II, are the only ships which can sail from the Siem Reap pier to Saigon’s harbor. With other vessels, passengers have to disembark mid-river and continue on land. Moreover, Toum Tiou’s low draft allows it access to the remotest of villages and to gently hug the river line, affording passengers priceless views of people, flora and fauna – hardly touched by modernity. Toum Tiou was custom built for passenger privacy, intimacy, comfort and safety.

Day 2: Kampong Chhnnang (B, L, D)
 
07:00 Breakfast
09:00 Arrival to Kampong Chhnnang
Located some 56 miles from Phnom Penh, the town of Kampong Chhnnang is one of the largest fishing ports on the Tonlé Sap. Fish
farming is also widely practiced in the area. The area is famous for its pottery ware, unchanged in style for centuries, which is
produced in sufficient quantities to supply the entire country. And not to be overlooked are the products of the Thnot tree (sugar palm
– a real national symbol) that abounds in the area: a mellow tasting, caramel-colored sugar sold in large cakes and palm wine.
12:00 Passengers re-embark. Lunch on the ship during navigation

The Vihara dates back to early last century. It was probably built on an older site, as indicated by the latérite foundations, and is home to some outstanding mural paintings. These, however, are starting to suffer from weathering. They remain one of the last survivors of cultural destruction that continues unabated due to widespread indifference.
Standing by itself in the middle of rice fields, it is a modest pagoda that receives very few visitors. Its isolation may well be its undoing, as was the case last May for Wat Tani Pagoda in the province of Kampot.
11:00 Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou. Lunch on board on the way to Phnom Penh.

The soil of Vinh Long is enriched by silt deposits, making it ideal for growing mandarins and other citrus fruits. Life is organized around the water.
Houses on stilts, hawkers in boats, hundreds of small craft crisscross in all directions. The hospitality of the locals makes it a tourist destination par excellence.
