ITINERARY BY DAY

Day 1: Community Village Tour   
Your Community Village Tour begins after breakfast with a drive to a local village about 40 kilometers  outside Siem Reap. Along the way you will stop at the headquarters of a local non-profit organization that employs village women who specialize in the traditional craft of mat weaving (closed on Sundays and public holidays.) The mats are then sold in the markets, providing an income for the women.

You’ll stop just outside the village and hop aboard an ox cart for a fun ride through the fields and to the home of a Khmer family who specializes in making brooms.  Watch how they make brooms from natural materials, and if you like have a go!  Then take a guided walking tour around the village where you have the opportunity to participate in fishing, farming or animal husbandry activities, depending on the time of year.  Enjoy a simple Khmer lunch followed by more activities or just spend time chatting with the locals.

Tonight you will stay in the modest home of a Khmer family. You will be provided with a mattress, mosquito net, sheets, pillow and a towel. There are basic bathroom facilities with a bucket for bathing with fresh well water.  Join the family for dinner and a chat over a game of cards.

Day 2: Community Village Tour – Siem Reap  
Today after breakfast, choose from a range of activities, you might like take a walk or short cycle around the surrounding area, help in the fields or prepare lunch. Head back to Siem Reap just after lunch, stopping at a Buddhist temple to receive a blessing from the monks.
