We recommend!

You can enjoy the rare experience of cooking your own meal on an open fire which you set all by yourself in the middle of the Cambodian jungle. You will be accompanied by our experienced guide – cook and a National Park ranger. You can book a single day trip from Siem Reap or a multiple day trek (2 days/1 night or 3 days/2 nights) and learn how to cook a local curry (or another dish) one of the evenings. It will taste much better than in the city restaurant, for sure. Look at the photos and book your Jungle Cooking Class now!

We wish all our friends and guests round the world - in particular in Cambodia - a very happy Khmer New Year 2560 (Buddhist Era). Lots of luck, good health and may destiny bring you to Cambodia some day soon :-)

 

It is a three day holiday - Maha Songkran, Vireak Vanaba and T'ngai Loeng Sak. People dress up and light candles and burn incense sticks at shrines, where they pay homage to offer thanks for the Buddha's teachings. For good luck people wash their face with holy water in the morning, their chests at noon, and their feet in the evening before they go to bed.

On the second day people contribute charity to the less fortunate by helping the poor, servants, homeless, and low-income families. Families attend a dedication ceremony to their ancestors at monasteries.

On the third day of the new year celebration Buddhists wash the Buddha statue with perfumed water. Bathing the Buddha images is a symbolic practice to wash bad actions away like water clean dirt from household items. It is also thought to be a kind deed that will bring longevity, good luck, happiness and prosperity in life.
