Trip at a glance

Delve deep into Cambodia’s intense history on this twelve-day trip around the country. We will soak up the ancient jungle atmosphere of Angkor Wat and enjoy Siem Reap’s laid back charm. We travel off the beaten path to visit sacred temples and experience local village life. In Phnom Penh, we will take in the historic centre and explore the riverside colonial architecture of this growing capital city. We finish up with some beach time on the beautiful Cambodia coast, where the old colonial retreat of Kep lets us unwind and soak up the sun.

 

Connect with Cambodia’s resilient and friendly people and learn about the many ingenious ways they are helping their country. All along the way we will visit local NGO projects, eat at great restaurants in support local communities contributing to a variety of social enterprises as we are captivated by colourful Cambodia!

Give back

The people of Cambodia have a faced a number of harsh realities in their recent history, including years of colonialism, a bloody civil war and an infamous genocide. After years of bloodshed, isolation, poverty, and political instability the Cambodian people show their unbreakable spirit as they continue to rebuild their country. Their resilient and creative nature is apparent in the vibrant NGO scene. The opportunities to help are plentiful and today many local businesses are taking responsibly for giving back to the local communities and fostering sustainable development.

 

When you travel to Cambodia with Soulful Concepts, you will be supporting the Small Business Start-Up Program of the Shinta Mani Foundation, based in Siem Reap. Working in the areas of education, healthcare, and business development the Foundation focuses on empowering individuals living and working in the Siem Reap area. The Small Business Start-Up Program provides interest free small business loans to local entrepreneurs. Loans cover the start up costs and are given in the forms of materials needed while additional support, such as business management education and training, are also available to loan recipients. Once a loan is repaid the funding goes back into the program allowing it fund another enterprise within the community. Your contribution to this program helps local communities to become self-sustaining and self developing, creating job opportunities and building a network of local enterprises.

 

As always, by participating in responsible tourism that respects and honours the people and places you visit, you are helping to support the local communities in sustaining their way of life. Your travel time in their home country and your interest in their culture helps bring money to the community, supports local guides, fishermen and artisans, and allows them to take pride in their heritage and traditions. By joining us in supporting socially and environmentally conscious businesses, you are helping NGOs have a positive impact through holistic community development.

    Belinda took us on the most amazing experience through Asia, ensuring all our needs were meet along the way. We had so many unique and engaging experiences with the locals and their way of life. We ate local cuisine in haunts I would not have ventured on my own, but so happy tried and tasted all the regional delicacies. We got a real sense of the culture due to the rapport she had with the locals, making it feel we were part of the family being shown the country she is so passionate and proud to show off. I have no hesitations in booking a holiday through her again.

    Hats off, one of the most out of my comfort zones holidays ever experienced. Belinda organised and led a tour through Vietnam and Cambodia that was an experience reflective of how the locals live. We had all the luxuries of great hotels and restaurants whilst immersing ourselves in the spirit and culture of the destinations we visited. Not in a million years could I have achieved the experience I did without Belinda’s amazing organisation of our trip and upbeat, can do approach to our day-to-day travels. Thank you Belinda, you have a return traveller, I look forward to our next adventure.
