An authentic Cambodian experience

Cheung Kok is a really charming village where you can see the real Cambodia: authentic smiles, beautiful nature, handcrafted products (silk, bamboo, coconut, etc). The people in the village will give you a warm welcome and make you feel at home. The French NGO Amica has helped the development of this village through water supply and education projects among others. The tour guide Aline is great! Thanks again for everything :)

Heart expanding local experience!

I loved spending the afternoon here in this friendly village! I was given a personal tour, got an up close look at weaving in progress and bought gifts for friends in the little shop. I loved that I could buy scarves that had the weaver's name tag. I chose scarves from the 2 women who I visited at their looms. Only $5/scarf and each one takes a couple days to weave! I left feeling a little sad to be saying goodbye to new friends.
