Rice paper making

What we say: 3.5 stars

En route to Ek Phnom you'll pass a group of houses dedicated to making the rice paper used in wrapping spring rolls, with the workers quite happy for you to stop and take a look.

What's interesting is the steam-driven mechanics of the process. The steam is created by the heat from rice chaff and it's mesmerising to watch them being made then laid out to dry.

The houses are in the middle of some of the best parts of the river road trip. Keep an eye out for the abandoned French colonial style villas, lush forest and emerald paddies.
