What You Can Expect

Private Tour: 2-Day Khmer Village Stay from Siem Reap

Private Tour: 2-Day Khmer Village Stay from Siem Reap

Day 1: Siem Reap – Khmer Village (L, D)
Start your tour in the morning with hotel pickup by private air-conditioned vehicle. En route to a rural Khmer village, located about 24 miles (40 km) outside of Siem Reap, visit the headquarters of a local non-profit organization that employs local women who specialize in the traditional craft of mat weaving (closed on Sundays and public holidays). Observe the expert handiwork of the mats, which are sold in the markets and provide income for the women who make them.

You’ll stop just outside the village and hop aboard an ox cart for a fun ride through the fields, making your way to the home of a Khmer family that runs a cottage industry producing brooms. Upon arrival, observe how they construct brooms from natural materials, and try your hand at it if you’d like.

Afterward, take a guided walking tour around the village, where you have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including fishing, farming or animal husbandry, depending on the time of year.

In the afternoon, enjoy a simple Khmer lunch followed by more village activities, or just spend time chatting with the locals with the assistance of your private guide.

In preparation for your overnight stay, you’re provided with a mattress, mosquito net, sheets, pillow and a towel. You’ll have access to basic bathroom facilities, including a bucket for bathing with fresh well water.

In the evening, join the family for dinner and a chat over a game of cards before retiring to sleep.
