Visit a family-owned pepper farm, which has been cultivated for many generations.
Next up is Wat Leu Pagoda, perched atop a lush green hill. From the summit, take in spectacular panoramic views of the entire city as well as Way Kraom sitting at the bottom of the hill.
After a flavorful Khmer lunch, head to Kbal Chhay Waterfalls, standing at the height of 14 meters. Water cascades down from several sources along the mountain ranges, but only three of which are visible. Listen to your guide about its historic past. Once a reservoir, Kbal Chhay quickly became the hideout for Khmer Rouge army during the civil war.
