Starting October 2017, guests at our Siem Reap resort may now enjoy complimentary village and community tours meant to help immerse themselves in the destination. There to lead the tours is our Guest Experience Manager, Sokrith who will be happy to show you around and share his knowledge about our little temple town. The guided tours are scheduled at 10:30 am and 4:30 pm daily, except Fridays.
Village Tour (10:30 am)
This 90 minute village tour features a visit to age-old pagodas and some truly unique social enterprises. The day will start with a visit to the 19th century old Wat Bo Pagoda and Wat Prom Reat, two of the most interesting pagodas in Siem Reap. After learning a bit of history and some photo taking sessions, guests will then head to the social enterprise of Rehash Trash by Green Gecko Project. The project turns discarded plastic bags into amazing products such as baskets and mats, that helps not only clean up the environment but also empowers and provides income for women and their families in the community. Next stop is Sombai, a home-grown business centered on the creation of rice wines. Guests will get the chance to visit their laboratory and have a free tasting session, to sample a variety of Cambodian wines infused with fruits and herbs.
Community Tour (4:30 pm)
This tour will bring guests to the beautiful community of Chreav, to set their sights on the stunning Cambodian countryside and the traditional villages in the area. It will be an up-close experience with the locals, with an opportunity to chat with them and learn more about their way of living. The tour will be concluded with a relaxing sundown session amidst the rice paddy fields.
