A sunset boat tour is one of the great tourist activities in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Blessed with rich Mekong river surrounded by dense mangrove forests abundant in local wildlife and flora, a boat tour along in the evening offers incredible sunset views.
A 2 to 3 hours typical boat tour takes travelers past the thriving wetlands in the Mekong, passing through traditional Cambodian villages practising fishing, farming, weaving and pottery. You will enjoy the lush green paddy and rice fields lined with palm trees, watch local Khmer life up close, along with soaking in vibrant hues of sunset. The tours offer complimentary drinks and snacks. Some of the trips also include dining by the river along with additional music and dance performances.
There are also cruises in all budgets if tourists want to experience more of the Mekong, where they can travel between towns for days. The slow boats offer authentic Khmer experience, passing through rugged landscapes and ecosystem.
