A little lost paradise in south Cambodia needs your help! We are situated on Pak Klang beach in Koh Kong province, just 8 km away from the border with Thailand. Starting from March we will run a small guesthouse with a few beach huts and a bar / restaurant on the beach itself. You will be sleeping in our bungalow with the sound of the waves crushing and will wake up with a fascinating sea view from your bed for an absolute tropical vibe.
The neighborhood is peaceful; you will be surrounded by mostly small restaurants owned by very lovely locals.
There is a local fisherman village and market just 10 min bike ride away from us. We are 10km away from the city and it is reachable by scooter that you can easily rent from somebody for cheap.
Take this chance to get to learn more about the Khmer culture by living among the locals. There is a lot to learn from their history and their life philosophy. Personally, that changed the way we see life. The Khmer are the warmest people I have met. Here you will get to meet a lot of travelers too; all having a unique story to share, and an opportunity for a lot of friendships to be made. We love learning languages too, we speak English, French, Macedonian, Croatian, Bulgarian and a bit of Spanish so if you speak or wish to learn any of these languages it would be a pleasure to exchange knowledge. In addition to that we like to do DIY projects to create anything from decorative objects to chairs and tables, so if you are feeling crafty it would be lot of fun. By helping us you would learn about business management as well. We would love to find a way to help the community as much as possible therefor any help will be greatly appreciated by the locals too.
We're looking for a motivated and cheerful volunteer(s) (max 2 persons) that will help us with the chores of running a day to day business. We have a small guesthouse (only 4 bungalows to rent) with restaurant on spot. You would be helping in maintaining the beach and all public spaces clean, taking reservations and doing check ins- check outs, social media help etc. It is very quiet period right now so there will not be much work anyway, but it is a lot to handle for me and my husband on daily basis :) We are asking for 5h of help in exchange accommodation in our beautiful bungalows and 20% off your tab for food and drinks at our restaurant.
You will be accommodated in one of our beach huts, equipped with bed , table and some shelves to place your things. We provide shared bathroom that include toilets and showers (hot water!)
Since we are located on the beach itself there is nothing better than a relaxing beach time for your time off. If you are more of a sportive person the Cardamom mountains offer you trekking in the jungle. You can explore the waterfall, do a boat trip in the mangroves, go for a day in Koh Kong island . You can socialize with the guests and we can all hangout together. We will most likely host parties so expect that it will get wild sometimes. After all the place is called “Young wild and free ’’ ;)
