    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a very rural village in the province of Kompon Spue so you will experience real khmer life away from the City their are no foreigners here so you will have children saying hello and wanting to chat with you although likely wont speak your language but you will learn a few words in khmer and my neighbours will love you for that. Ive just started a bakery so can teach the practical and theory of production baking and patisserie. I can take you to the open air markets and see how the locals buy their food. We live near Kirirom National Park which has an ecotourism centre over 5000 sqkm. Also we live 48km from Phnom Penh.

    Please bring your own mosquito net
    We don't have air con just fans.
    Am a chef and breakfast will be something like Oatmeal homemade natural coconut yogurt and locaal tropical fruit home made wholewheat toast

And lots of cakes and pastries all made in house.
