Le Kroma Villa comes highly recommended. Owned by a Khmer woman and her French husband, the resort comes complete with tropical gardens, an infinity pool overlooking the river, and fresh modern rooms, equipped with AC, hot shower and terrace. If you’re there at weekends, tuck into the oven-fired pizzas. A restaurant serves Khmer food throughout the rest of the week. The pool at the resort and the bar are also open to non-guests.

At there, Several tour operators also put on cycling tours of the island, with Grasshopper Adventures’ half-day tour being a popular pick with visitors. It is about 20 to 25km on and off paved roads, and costs $45.

The main silk weaving centre is about 1km from the ferry landing. It houses a series of stilted wooden houses, where weavers sit with their handmade wooden looms and create patterned silk scarves and traditional Khmer skirts. Free tours of the centre are available – a $1 or so tip for your guide will be very well received.
