Quite rightly a combination of Market, Village, and Countryside (with seasonal variations)... for ‘templed-out’ tourists who want to experience present-day Cambodia, and those for whom Cambodia is more than ancient piles of sandstone and laterite.
Without being too specific as to what you'll see and do, or eat along the way--as every day is different and no two tours are exactly alike--the Combo Tour focuses on a little bit of everything, including a visit to our local wholesale market for breakfast and a look around; a house visit, basket-weaving, school visit; a pagoda visit, with a chance to interact with young Buddhist monks. We'll also take in palm sugar production, blacksmithing, noodle-making, mat-weaving, stone/wood-carving; as well as incense-making, rice-planting/harvesting... You'll even get to try your back at a traditional Cambodian massage (cupping) if you like, and a variety of food along the way.
There's no insisting, no arm-twisting, no forced-feeding...
What we propose are options--not obligations--and that includes sharing a little ($5-$10 in local currency should more than carry the day!) here and there with those we meet and interact with along the way. (A visit, first thing, to a money-changer, where one can exchange foreign currency for USD and Riel, is part and parcel of all our tours. Keep in mind that US 1, 2, and 5-dollar bills are no longer accepted in Cambodia, so you'll need to change some USD to Riel, anyway, during your Siem Reap visit, to cover transactions of less than $10--for things such as tuk tuk rides, T-shirts, elephant pants, laundry, phone cards, food, beverages, and souvenirs).
If you enjoy sampling new things, you'll definitely want to book this tour--a kaleidoscope not just of colours, but of the food and culture that is Cambodia. Don't miss it! And do take our advice to COME ON AN EMPTY STOMACH!
We travel by tuk tuk and see Cambodia the way it's meant to be seen: slowly. We take in the sights, the sounds, the smells, the food... and stop to take pictures whenever you want.
