After breakfast drive to a small village, about 40 kilometers outside of Siem Reap. Along the way you will stop at the headquarters of a local non-profit organization that employs village women who specialize in the traditional craft of mat weaving. The mats are then sold later in the markets to provide an income for the women. (The mat-weaving workshop is closed on Sundays and public holidays)
You’ll stop just outside the village and hop aboard an ox cart for a fun ride through the fields and to the home of a Khmer family who specializes in making brooms. Watch how they make brooms from natural materials, and if you like have a go! Then take a guided walking tour around the village where you have the opportunity to participate in fishing, farming or animal husbandry activities, depending on the time of year. Enjoy a simple Khmer lunch followed by more activities or just spend time chatting with the locals. Funds from your tour go directly to the community to improve the lives of the people. On the way back to Siem Reap, you will stop at a Buddhist temple to receive a blessing from the monks.
