1. Morning Market Tour With Optional Extras

Join us as the Kingdom's Capital wakes up and comes to life! We think this is the best time to visit the local markets. Starting with a hotel pick up, we will head to our favorite local (you won't see any other tourists here) morning market for a guided tour which includes 2 delicious breakfasts (come hungry) as well as local snacks and learn about the often under-represented food culture of Cambodia as well as getting a glimpse into her past and present.

You have the choice of heading back to your hotel or the following optional extras:

Optional Street Art Extension

After breakfast join us as we forage through the streets of Phnom Penh in search of the Kingdom's finest hidden murals and street art on a curated tour. There has been a prominent street art scene developing in the Kingdom for the past decade, part of the country's cultural renaissance. Like most things worth having, these murals are not easy to find but fear no more, we've got you covered! You will visit over 12 different murals around the city, learn about the Artists back stories, contemporary Cambodian art and even get to complete your own graffiti tag! 

- Optional Killing Fields and S21 Museum Extension

After breakfast you will say goodbye to your guide and head out with our English Speaking Tuk Tuk Drivers to the famous Killing Fields for a self guided (there are amazing audio guides) tour. You will then be taken back into town to the S21 Genocide Museum to learn more about Cambodia's dark history, before a drop off at the destination of your choice.

Grasshopper Bicycle Adventures

One of my favorite things to do in Phnom Penh is to get out of the city on a bicycle! Grasshopper Adventures offer a great half day trip (my personal fav) - Islands of the Mekong.

'Away from the tuk tuks, the motorbikes, the massages, the pizza and the bars, is a truly unique experience. It's as simple as going on a pedal through the Mekong Islands that lie just north of Phnom Penh. Return to the city with a new view on Phnom Penh and on Cambodia.

If you can ride a bike, then you will love this ride. The distance is approximately 25km on mainly flat tracks and small roads. We will stop often to chat with the locals and learn a little about what everyone is up to. There are lots of snack and water stops as well as some great river ferry crossings. A delicious local lunch is included. Snacks, fruit and clean water are also provided throughout the tour '

Cost is USD45pp. To check availability and make bookings shoot an email through to info@urbanforage.co
