Khmer smiles

Khmer smiles

While seeing the wonderful Banteay Chhmar Temple is definitely the highlight of your trip here, an even more memorable experience will be your interactions with the local Khmer people. We are certain that you will truly remember the smiles of your homestay family, tour guides and all the villagers that you meet.

 

 

 

Banteay Chhmar has much more to offer you than just seeing another temple. The year is filled with many holidays, ceremonies, festivals and village activities from the Khmer New Year (in April) to the Water Festival (in November). If you are lucky you may even get invited to a wedding.

Do you want to try planting or harvesting rice? Learn how to weave silk?  Maybe you want to go fishing with a traditional net? Please ask our tour guides and see our Tourism Event Calendar to help you decide what to do. You will find the Khmer people very welcoming and they will gladly include you in both their daily lives and more special occasions.
