Koh Preah is an island situated in the middle of the Mekong River. It is 35km South of Stung Treng town. Koh Preah was set up as a community-based ecotourism site in 2010 by CRDT Tours. The project aims to provide alternative livelihood for the family in the village and promote the conservation of the Mekong Diversity. Koh Preah villager usually cooks delicious food and has warm hospitality. Koh Preah is green and surrounded by a lot of nice sand bars and small islands. Camping on one of those islands will give you a magnificent experience. For example, the warm welcome and arrangement by local people, BBQ diner with the beverage, try to fish using the local net and gaze the star at night.
100% of our profit go back to community development.
The journey starts from Koh Preah in the afternoon. After meeting with the local Koh Preah facilitator and CRDT Tours coordinator, we will review the bring-along checklist. Then you embark on a boat heading for the arranged camping island. A boat trip to the camping place gives you a good experience since driving past a nice view of the River. Sometimes you will be transported by a local truck (iron cow) to take the boat from another pier as it is more convenient.
At the camping place, we set up the camping and campfire and BBQ dinner. In the late afternoon where the sun gets colder, you and your friends can go fishing using a fishing net. There is a chance to get some fish from the Mekong. Another activity to not miss is swimming in the Mekong. At night, you and your friend gather around the fire with BBQ and good night.
The next day in the morning, we do the steam bath prepared by local people and have breakfast with hot coffee or tea while viewing the sunrise. Next, we wrap back up to the village. At the village center, you fill out some feedbacks form and farewell.
