Prey Chung Kran Weaving village

Famous across the country for its high-quality kramas, sarongs and hol, the weavers here work under the stilted homes that line the long dirt road.

You're more than welcome to take a look at the women weaving and fabrics are available for sale fresh off the loom.

It takes three days to make two metres, so be prepared to pay between $50 and $90 per unit. You'll also see silks being dyed, but much of the silk itself comes from Vietnam or elsewhere in Cambodia.

Watch out; the canines here pack a particularly angry bark. Prey Chung Kran is actually in Prey Veng province.


How to get there
As for Wat Maha Leap. You can also reach Prey Chung Kran by motorbike, but the boat trip is far more pleasant.
