Join us on a half-day bicycle tour to see the “unseen” parts of Kampot! Visit a lotus farm and a rice mill, view vast fields of paddy, and say hi to local villagers! You will be guided by our friendly and knowledgeable student guides, many of whom have lived in Kampot all their lives.
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!
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.
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!
Next up, your guide will introduce you to the Cambodian rolled cake, a local delicacy of Kampot. Observe the processes involved in the making of this delicious cake, and discover how this simple trade sustains the local community. If you would like to, you can sample a taste!
On our final stop, we will head to a pagoda frequented by the local community. Here, your guide will tell you more about religion in Cambodia, as well as the cultural practices connected to it.
