Stop 1: Lotus Farm

The lotus flower grows in mud, yet rises above it to grow untainted by its surroundings. In essence, the lotus is a symbol of purity and carries deep religious significance for the local Cambodian-Buddhist community. On our first stop, we take you to a lotus farm, where you will be able to learn more about this remarkable flower and watch lotus farmers at work. The farm is also a wonderful photo opportunity!

Stop 2: Spectacular Rice Paddies

After the lotus farm, we will cycle along Kampot’s paddy fields. Be amazed by this spectacular scenery, and be sure to photograph it! You will also see paddy farmers at work, many of whom still use traditional farming methods to plant and harvest their crop.

Stop 3: Traditional Khmer Noodles

At our next stop, we will visit a local noodle maker. Your guide will tell you more about the processes involved in this trade, and you may choose to sample some yummy noodles if you wish!
