In a little village called Pang Na, just 40 km southwest of Phnom Penh, I run my own homestay and school. It is a lovely little village surrounded by rice fields, pumpkin fields and watermelons that are breath taking during sunrise and sunset. The life in the countryside will give you peace of mind and shows you our daily life. During your stay you will experience Khmer hospitality, warmth and generosity.
There are many things to do. You can join my wife Mom to the local market for example. The market is a colorful busy place where you can buy anything. The market stalls outside are surrounding a small lake, where fruits, vegetables, meat and bread are sold. Pick your own ingredients for dinner, and watch Mom haggling and joking with the sellers.
You can also join in our daily farming activities, as farming is the main income for the villagers. We can show you how to grow fruits and vegetables in an organic way.
Or use our bicycles to explore the surroundings by yourself and meet the friendly local people.
A couple of years ago I built a small school next to our house to offer free English classes to the local children as learning English is not possible for many kids in Cambodia. I try to finance this by offering a homestay to travelers. You also have the opportunity to teach the children English. They will love it!
We also have some beautiful pagodas and an animal rescue center where I can take you (20 USD extra). So you don’t need to be bored when staying with us.
Every morning we will prepare a fresh breakfast with a variety of eggs, baguettes, rice, vegetables, bacon and fresh fruits served in our garden. For lunch and dinner we will serve you traditional Khmer meals prepared with fresh ingredients form the market.
At the moment, you can use one of the dormitories. Fans are available in every room. Fresh water is also available, so you can use a bucket shower to start the day. Would be great if you could bring your own toiletries and towels.
Every Dollar you spend for your trip, will stay in the village to support the families and to finance the children’s education.
I can pick you up by tuk tuk from Phnom Penh for 20 USD return journey or you can come by yourself, whatever you prefer.
