Day in a Life - Experience a true slice of village life

Step off the tourist trail and step into village life.  Join a local family for the day, learn about village life and take part in their daily activities.  Rural life revolves around the seasons so what you do will depend on when you visit.  Activities may include rice planting or harvesting in the dry season, you may learn how to make roof thatch or how to make local palm sugar wine.

Our Day in a Life tour partners with HUSK Cambodia and supports village projects and assists local families to earn an income. 

Your guide will take you though the village giving you insight into the community and local life. Enjoy an OX cart ride through the Sugar Palm trees and rice fields and lunch in the village.

This full day experience is a great way to learn about village life in Cambodia, meet some wonderful people and create memories to last a lifetime.
