Before You Go

Here is some information to prepare for your upcoming yoga retreat with Rachel and Pierce in Kampot Cambodia.


• Cambodia uses US dollars and Riel as local currency, so feel free to bring cash with you to use for expenses while there. Make sure they are crisp bills and not torn or wrinkled. ATM’s dispense US dollars but charge a processing fee. Your bank may also charge a fee on top of this, but not all do, so check with your bank. Many places do not take credit cards, so cash will be your friend. The exchange rate for Riel to USD is around 4,000 Riel to $1.00. Make sure to notify your bank(s) and credit card(s) of the countries you plan to travel to in advance of your trip. 

• When entering Cambodia (or any of the surrounding countries) mark “tourism” as your purpose of entry.

• If you are coming straight from the airport in Phnom Penh (on the edge of town) to Kampot on Sunday March 4th, we can arrange a taxi pickup for you. Cost between $40-$50 one way and takes approximately 2.5 hours. If you will be in Phnom Penh city we can arrange a bus ticket for you (or taxi from your hotel/guesthouse) or you can buy yourself. We recommend Giant Ibis, as they are a medium sized bus, stop at a halfway point in the trip for bathroom and snacks and has wifi on board. The trip is about 3 hours and cost $10  - http://giantibis.com/

• The weather is warm, between 70’s and 90’s and it will be the dry season; it most likely will not rain during that time. All accommodations are fan only rooms, and the temperature gets cool in the evening to make sleeping comfortable.

• Please respect the local culture and dress appropriately, especially If going to a temple (Appropriate attire is long pants (covering the knee) and shirts that cover shoulders. Skirts, small shorts, tank tops, and other items of revealing clothing are not allowed) - Swim suits are fine at the resort.

• Cambodia is mainly a Buddhist country but you will see some Muslim villages and sparing Christianity.

• Read more about Cambodia's religious history here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Cambodia

• Cambodians and the language are called Khmer (pronounced - “Ka-My”) - Read more about Cambodia’s history here: http://bit.ly/2qVk0J6
