Meeting the Locals is a Respectful and Meaningful Way

Adventurous Asia provides a wide range of fantastic community and village experiences ideal for both male and female, single traveler and group.  Any activities you prefer can offer a range of unique experiences within the Cambodian countryside.   Each of our activities works with the local community to ensure you have a meaningful experience and learn more about real life of locals.

Adventurous Asia designs the village and community tours to help the travelers get very close to the real and typical indigenous life. As a part of NON-Profit Organization that helps support the local communities Adventurous Asia has plenty of activities that tailor to the needs of the travelers, every village activity supports the poor communities where the most of tour operators and travelers were not involved. All means thought and effort has gone in to working with the communities.  When you walk and talk there will be dozen of kids and hundreds of families in the village will be welcome and greet you in positive and graceful ways.  Today tours give you the opportunity to learn about typical and real life in the community, meeting and interacting with locals in a respectful and meaningful way.  Photo opportunities abound. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about real life in Cambodia.

Cooking Class

 The village tour is a great to see and learn about real life of locals, every village household has own garden and vegetable farm and herbs, they raised chicken, duck and pig for food as those serve as daily meat in the country side.

Cooking class and having food with local are amazing way to learn about the Khmer culture. First you learn about food preparation in a Khmer home. Then learn about the typical ingredients in Cambodian cooking and have the opportunity to see Cambodian cooking first hand. This time you will be wandering around the village home and pick up some vegetables and herbs for cooking while the household prepares some meat for you.

House Building

Most of the families in Cambodia are quite poor, they do not have any regular income, can’t even buy some food for their kids; however, the biggest trouble that the families facing is having no proper residence, this happens a lot to the family including, widows, single mothers, landmine victims, children orphaned as a result of AIDS, etc.

This activity is to provide an in depth and meaningful experience for foreigners visiting Cambodia and make the people aware of poverty and the issues involved - the causes of poverty, the results of poverty and solutions to poverty.

The concept was to provide a learning experience that taught the recent history of Cambodia and to combine this learning with a practical experience of the impact on many people here. This was to be done through building a small home for a family in our project.
