Visit an Orphanage

Frequently visited by foreigners wanting to help out with time, money, food, school books, etc. Be aware that orphanages may be exploitative and poorly run - your money may go to the owner rather than the kids. Also, accepting impromptu visits from unscreened foreigners is often a sign of a substandard orphanage, which does not have the children's best interests at heart. If you really want to help, try contacting organizations that run educational programs, and see if there is anything you can assist.

Mekong Cruises

Boats leave every evening for a river cruise. Many provide snacks or dinners at sunset. Be sure to visit Mekong Island to see rural life. 

Take note that the tours are vewry commercialized. You will likely stop at a candy farm and other shops, where overpriced items are sold. Remember the stuff you want to buy, and buy it elsewhere (including candy).

Bicycle tours and rental

Take a short trip alone or with your family, friends and colleagues to the other side of the Mekong River or into the countryside. 

Mekong Islands bicycle tour

Try riding on a 20 kilometres bicycle trail with Grasshopper Adventures, along the rivers and criss-crossing the islands with inclusive of 4 ferry hops to explore the lush green countryside around Phnom Penh.
