Depart from Siem Reap and journey out to a local village where you will spend the day. The village sits around 16km from Siem Reap and consists of mostly farming families. Please note this is a real village not a replica set up for tourists to visit, as such you need to flexible, things can change, ceremonies may be running or events may be taking place in the village. We in no way want to impact on the traditional culture or practices in the village and so will adapt the tour if need be.
Each tour works with one host family, who is a Type 1 Poor Family. Typically a type one family has no regular income source, and no savings. Families often miss meals and are very vulnerable to illness.
Activities on the tour may include planting rice, harvesting or transplanting rice depending on the time of year. Other activities include weaving thatch for roof repairs, weaving wall panels, planting vegetable crops, tree planting, making prahoc or rice wine. Every tour is different, activities will depend on the time of year, family needs and goings on in the village. On each tour you will also have the opportunity to plant a fruit tree for your host family. This will provide a future food and potential income source.
Every tour welcomes you into the village. Learn about life in a typical village, visit the local Pagoda and school if possible. Find out about village customs and culture and gain new insights and experiences.
A Khmer hot lunch is freshly prepared in the village, using ingredients prepared by our catering partner in Siem Reap. Your meal includes starter, main and fresh fruit for dessert. Lunch is normally enjoyed together with your host family, however sometimes they prefer to eat alone; please do not be offended by this. *
*Please note due to lack of electricity and proper sanitation we cannot source food from the village.
This Day in a Life Tour is part of Beyonds Responsible Tourism Initiative. Every tour directly helps a Type 1 village family. In addition every tour sets aside funding for projects in the village. Your participation directly helps Cambodian families.
*Please note providing gifts is a wonderful gesture but can cause issues of jealousy and lead to a begging cycle. If you would like to help please discuss this with tour staff who can provide information on the best way to make a meaningful difference. You may also visit www.huskcambodia.org
