Top 5 reasons to visit and volunteer in Cambodia

  • Angkor Wat - take a tour around the incredible Kingdom of Angkor which reigned between 9th and 14th centuries, learn about the inspiring culture and heritage. See first hand the intricate detail to each of these wonderful temples, each part of the largest Hindu temple complex in the world.

  • Food - try out some of the best Cambodian cuisine; Amok, Lak Lak and noddles are always easy to find and surprisingly, French baguettes are also common, a remnant of the French colonial presence in Cambodia. Take a stroll through the local markets and enjoy the vibrant colours of the fruit and veg stalls!

  • Wildlife - take a trip to the Kratié Province along the Mekong River which is home to the endangered Irrawaddy dolphins. Soak up the local wildlife and relax watching the sun set over the river.

  • Siem Reap - known as the gateway to the famous Angkor Wat, Siem Reap is worth a visit in its own right. A small town full of colonial charm but more recently the tourist hub. A great place to learn yoga, get your shopping done and explore the old market whilst meeting like minded travellers.

  • Phnom Penh - the capital of Cambodia. Eat at one of the delightful restaurants on the river front, take a tuk-tuk to explore the city, the King’s Palace, stroll through the parks and shops around town. Explore Cambodia’s turbulent history with visits to S-21 Prison and the Killing Fields, from the dark days of the Khmer Rouge.

We are driven by the needs of the projects we support. We only offer sustainable volunteering projects that have lasting and positive impact on the local community.
