Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Local Village Communities

Embark on an authentic rural Cambodia tour to learn about life in a typical village. Meet friendly locals and discover traditional village customs and cultures.

As the gateway to Angkor, Siem Reap is a bustling town filled with a multitude of incredible hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Staying here you may actually not realise just how rural the surrounding province is. Just outside of the town you enter into pristine countryside, beautiful rural villages and picturesque landscapes.

Start with an early morning visit to Ta Brak village. Like most villages in Asia, Ta Brak is busiest in the morning hours. You will have the opportunity to meet with a local family to learn about daily life and the seasonal activities that are taking place. 

Take an ox cart ride, a traditional countryside method of transporting people and goods. The 30 minute journey passes through the village on the way to the local market. Explore the colourful displays of vegetables, herbs and other locally-grown produce, and mingle with the shoppers who come every morning to buy the fresh ingredients.

Continue on foot through the village, providing ample opportunities to stop and chat with locals and to observe their activities. Depending on the time of year, they may be planting rice, weaving thatch coverings for their roofs, harvesting vegetables, or other similar tasks. For a truly immersive experience, lend a hand and join the locals in these activities.
