Stop 1: Salt Farming
Cambodia’s weather can be fairly extreme, and during the rainy season the rice paddies which make up Cambodia’s rural areas become almost completely submerged in water. As you take in this vast, beautiful scene, your tour guide (who may have had experience working in this sector themselves) will talk you through all the processes involved in Battambang’s agriculture, and its significance to the locals’ way of life.
Stop 2: Rice farming
You might be aware that the main land use in Cambodia is rice paddy fields. Here you can be amazed by the beautiful scenery of Kampot and witness farmers in operation. The farmers in Kampot are mostly still using traditional farming techniques; therefore, you will see how they do it differently compared to other developed countries.

Stop 5: Historical Temple Caves
After cycling along the main road out of Siem Reap, your tour guide will take you to a rice wine distillery.
