All of those silk scarves and cot­ton tops you see in the mar­kets around Cam­bo­dia- most of them come from Silk Island. Also known as Koh Dach, this small island in the mid­dle of Phnom Penh serves as a unique way to see the rur­al side of Cam­bo­dia with­out trav­el­ing far out­side the city.

Many locals here live in tra­di­tion­al Cam­bo­di­an teak wood hous­es on dirt roads. You’ll notice that almost every house has a silk spin­ning machine under their home where women are busy hand-mak­ing these gor­geous accessories.

On the island is a silk fac­to­ry where cater­pil­lars pro­duce silk and staff har­vest them. Take a tour by the fac­to­ry guide and buy silk prod­ucts for a frac­tion of the price. After­wards, ask the locals to point you in the direc­tion of the yum­my (and cheap) local river­side restau­rant. Have an authen­tic meal then jump in the riv­er with your clothes on as the locals do.
