On their way towards a more sustainable future

Cheung Kok is a lovely traditional village patronized by the French NGO Amica that supports efforts towards a more sustainable rural life. The villagers grow rice but as they can only harvest a single crop a year, they are also looking for alternative lines of activity like silk worm growing and ecotourism. One can imagine what the village life feels by walking the soil paths and wandering the courtyards, as well as to study the traditional house on posts. The people we met were most hospitable and our tour guide Aline explained everything about the local life. She was also the only one to speak English to. It was a pity we didn't know any phrases of Khmer, although thanks to our guide there was really no need to and the villagers catch foreigners' body language easily, too. Cheung Kok is also an artisan village where they weave the traditional Khmer kramas of cotton, make clothes, pouches, necklaces and souvenirs. Buying an item from the local shop will leave most of the charge to the maker of the piece.

Inspiring!

I spent a evening on this village.We walk through the village and kids were so excited to see the visitors. They were so polite. We also have the opportunity to see an old lady making a scarf. It was inspiring because despite her age, she still enjoys her work. What make me sad,it's to realized how much time and effort they put into their work and still some people complain about prices. I bought most of my gifts there. I loved my time there.
