Around 10 AM, the boat reaches a pier near Oudong site. Accompanied by our english speaking board manager and after a short transfer by tuk-tuks (approx. 10mn trip) which drive you near hilltop, you will discover the heart of the ancient capital, crowned by pagodas and stupas in the middle of vegetation, surrounded by the magnificent countryside (see panorama on picture above).
