About this trip

Join us on a 10 day adventure to Cambodia. 


Cambodia is an adventure as much as a holiday, and despite its headline attractions like Angkor Wat, its greatest treasure is its people. Come join us exploring this beautiful spiritual country, while also spending some of your holiday volunteering with Cambodia Rice Run on our projects. 


Start in Siem Reap for 7 nights staying in the luxury of Navutu Dreams Resort and Wellness Retreat, a short tuk tuk ride from the centre of Siem Reap.  Siem Reap is a regional hotspot for dining, bars and all things spiritual. Siem Reap is a place to be savoured, not rushed, and Siem Reap will win your heart. 


The last three nights of our time in Cambodia is spent in its capital city, Phnom Penh. The name can't help but conjure up an image of the exotic. Despite its recent genocidal history tarnishing the jewel in the crown, the city has risen from its ashes and is now a hip vibey place to hang out and study its sad history.


Please note that there will be 4 days of volunteering throughout the tour. We encourage all participants to fundraise a minimum of $500 to put towards Cambodian Rice Run projects on top of your tour price.

Currency

Cambodia uses two currencies - both USD and the local RIEL. 


Riel is essentially useless outside of Cambodia so make sure you use it up while in country as you will not be able to exchange it once you have left the country. 


It can be confusing but both currencies are used interchangeably
