Description

Exploring Koh Trong Island is a must – what better way to do this than from the back of a horse or ox lead cart. Two hours by horse cart or three hours by ox/cow cart, the tour will take you on the single paved road around the island. Sit back and relax as the work is done for you and watch as locals go about their daily routines.
Feast your eyes on vibrant green rice fields, fruit orchards and palm trees galore. If animal powered transport is not your thing, larger tuk-tuks (motor bike powered rickshaw) are available to tour the island and can also stop for you to explore.
