October was a slow and somewhat difficult month in Banteay Chhmar and northern Cambodia. Heavy rains from typhoons combined with the annual monsoons and swept through this area in late September and early October. As a result, there has been significant damage to the rice and cassava crops. Additionally, the road to Banteay Chhmar has been severely damaged in several areas. It is still possible to visit us, however it is always best to confirm your reservations a few days beforehand and ask us about the road conditions.
On a brighter note, please read a recent article about the CBT that was published by Spotlight on Sustainable Tourism (SOST). We thank them for helping to spread the news, successes and challenges of the CBT project.
