What People Are Saying About Cambodian Cultural Village
On this tour you get a very good view of how many Cambodiam people live,very poor but happy.The tour guide was excellent answering all the questions asked in very good English.A tour not to be missed.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Lee explained to me that the villages were looked after by a NGO (Husk) who had set up schools, medical facilities, recycling of water bottles which they fill and make into the walls of the houses, he showed me many of the new initiatives they are making to improve the lives of the people. The tour company itseld makes a donation from all revenue to help the Khmer village people. Lee, my excellemt tour guide, was happy to answer my many questions and was very professional and respectful. He has a good university education and is very informativd yet sensitive to the lives, rituals and beliefs of the people. Don't use any other guide then him; he is the best I have found and I have travelled to Cambodia 5 times and spent much time here, so I do know! It was wonderful walking through the villages; meeting & talking with elders and the lovely smiling young children. We also learnes about thwir agricultural life, their spiritual beliefs; why homes on stilts
It was a very educational hands-on experience in how much of the third world lives. We returned from the trip very dirty, sweaty and tired, but we were absolutely delighted that we had taken this opportunity to get "immersed" in the local life and culture. Our guide was very informative and fluent in English, and explained details of Cambodian life that would be difficult to comprehend without a knowledgeable local guide. Following our outing, all in our group were eager to make a contribution to HUSK, to allow for some small measure of material upgrades to the villagers that were so welcoming to us.
We had a great day doing some activities in a Cambodian life. We began with an oxcart ride, lovingly called the "Cambodian Lexus", then spent time harvesting rice with a sicle, a back breaking job in the hot sun that makes you appreciate your job. We then planted trees and had a cooked lunch at family home--food came from restaurant and family learned how to hygenically prepare the food. We had fish cakes, chicken curry and fruit for dessert. Finally we toured the headquarters of Husk and school Husk runs for the local children. Money from this activity goes back to the local people--a win-win situation--you learn about the daily life of Cambodians and help them at the same time.
