This culture week is designed to introduce you to the Cambodian culture and pace of life. By getting to to know the surrounding town and its facilities, you will have everything you need to make your stay memorable as well as comfortable.

Cambodia is arguably most famous for its glorious and magnificent temples. Siem Reap and Samraong are no exception and you will be taken to the finest temples in the area. We also carefully arrange a Q&A session with monks to enhance your understanding of Buddhism.

During the culture week you will be staying in the famous city of Siem Reap and the rural town of Samraong. You will be given basic "survival" language classes and learn traditional Cambodian cooking techniques with the chance to sample your work.

Cambodia’s relaxing, slow paced way of life will allow the maximum interaction between you and the local people, who are keen to learn about your culture too!
