7:30am - 4pm
Ride through the countryside to learn about the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity in Cambodian village life. After stopping at a few French colonial architecture sites in town, we will ride the countryside roads and arrive at a rural Muslim village. Here, we will visit families to learn about their everyday life, family history, and traditions. After, we will weave our way along the river roads to a village full of traditional houses. Here you’ll learn about the traditional way of living and the changes happening in the Cambodian countryside. You’ll also have the chance to speak with an ex-soldier and learn about his past and his work as a fortune teller and healer. After lunch at a family home, we will continue through rice fields and stop at a Buddhist temple to learn about monastic life, before we return back to town.
These tours provide vocational training opportunities to local youth, contribute economically to community development, ensure tourism dollars stay in the communities and provide guests with an experience that is respectful to and educative on local culture.
