Prey Chung Kran Weaving village
Interesting and a scenic trip
What we say:
Located a further 10 minutes by boat downriver from Wat Maha Leap, the weaving village of Prey Chung Kran is worth a visit if you have not seen weaving in Cambodia.
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.
More detailsHow 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.
