      14:30     Arrival to Kampong Chnang.

      Located some 56 miles from Phnom Penh, the town of Kampong Chnang 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.

      18:00     Passengers re-embark. The Toum Tiou II drops anchor few miles away.

      08:30     Arrival at Kampong Tralach to visit its wonderful Vihara belonging to Wat Kampong Tralach Leu pagoda. To

      get to it, we cross Kampong Tralach Krom village along a small road perpendicular to the river, crossing some

      gorgeous stretches of emerald rice paddy as we leave the river behind.

      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.

      10:30     Passengers re-embark the Toum Tiou II. Lunch on board on the way to Phnom Penh.

      14:00     Arrival in Phnom Penh. - Tuol Sleng Museum, old center of detention, of torture and

      which fans out to the dimensions of a river mouth here. Floating fish farms have sprung up everywhere.

      Bamboo fish drying racks are set up a meter above the water's surface. The bourgeoning downtown area

      30,000 inhabitants is fascinating in its unspoiled authenticity and undisturbed by tourists. It provides a

      glimpse of the delta where a few colonial houses still remain, including the "Chinaman's house" (from Duras'

      novel "The Lover", also made into a movie).

      Mekong. 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
