Visit Angkor & Having The Experience with Cambodian  Homestay!

Travel Loops has developed projects to help and support local families and the community directly. With our home stay tour you will venture off the beaten path, and you will learn about rural life in Cambodia. You will have the opportunity to connect with the people and communities you will visit, and talk with people from the Khmer Rouge Era. Experience farm life, taste traditional meals, and experience a Cambodian bucket shower. Families are especially welcome on this tour!

Our home stay tours are in the rural area of Siem Reap which is surrounded by rice paddies. You will encounter cows, chickens, pigs and ducks. Most Cambodian families prefer to keep dogs as pets and they are free to run around. During your stay with a local family, you will have the chance to share with them their work in the fields and garden. See how they support their daily life, and see how the kids go to school and help the family.
