A human and solidarity tour

More than a simple touristic tour in a city or in a famous area, these eco-trips are a shape of sustainable tourism, directly towards exotic natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife.

You will both discover the rural cambodian world and help for his development. In fact all the benefits of these tours will be done at local communities and for the NGO which create and support this project.

The purpose of our Community tour is to link the farmers with the economic and touristic development here in Siem Reap. People from the countryside don’t have much opportunity to benefit from it in their daily lives. We also want to motivate them to work together, to enhance the links inside the cooperative using a profitable activity that offer a better horizon for the young generation.
