Back to Basics: 4 hour Village life Tour


9am - 1pm

Explore a local village near Siem Reap with a guide born there! Work with families and learn about sustainable development, water rights, and daily life in this vibrant and traditional countryside village.

Get back to the basics with this incredible, authentic look at daily life in Siem Reap. From gathering firewood to pumping water, the traditional ways of life are still very much alive in these vibrant and bustling communities, and today you can experience this simplicity with an informative and culturally sensitive chance to experience this life for yourself.

As you step into the village, you'll be greeted with friendly villagers happy to help you learn the ways of their world. You'll see families weaving, making baskets, digging wells, and making rice wine. As you walk through the village, you'll be treated to a local's perspective – because your guide was born there!

Along the way, snap photos, listen to Khmer music, and learn the basic needs of clean water, employment, and sustainable development from those most affected by these political issues. You will also visit the school and village Pergola and the town's local Buddhist temple (pagoda). It will be a day for you to remember, and hopefully you'll understand a bit more about this delicate and flourishing community deep in the countryside near Siem Reap.
