2-Day Monastery Experience in Siem Reap


Have you ever wondered about the lives of the serene orange-clad monks who walk the streets of Siem Reap?

Have you wondered about life in their sandals? What it must be like, what their vows are, how they survive not eating after 12.00 noon? Well, now is your chance to experience the life of a monk.

This is a 2-day wellness experience that will give you a deeper understanding of Buddhism, meditation, and life as a monk.

You will be picked up from your hotel at 8.30 am and brought to the pagoda where you will stay the 2 days. You will get an introduction to Buddhism and the life of Buddha. At 10 am, you will have a meditation session for one hour, after which you will enjoy lunch with the monks. At 2 pm, another aspect of Buddhism will be taught, followed by a meditation session. At 5 pm the day is finished, and you will have some free time. Be aware that the monks are not having dinner.

The next morning starts at 7.30 am with a communal breakfast. At 8 am, some new Buddhism lessons will be given. You will leave the pagoda at 2 pm (or can arrange to stay for some extra nights) and be brought to another pagoda where you will receive a water blessing and witness more activities monks are doing. At 4 pm you will be brought back to your hotel.
