Get a taste of the challenges facing Cambodians, and the subsequent impact on your students, on a rewarding teacher taster trip. Find out what it will be like to live and work in a rural Cambodian community and make a measurable impact through community development initiatives.
Cambodia is a country of extremes, with severe poverty flanked by 5* hotels and exclusive tourism, ancient temples and modern evolving city, peace loving people but with a terrible recent history of the Khmer Rouge. You will get the chance to visit the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat temple, wander the night markets of Siem Reap, understand the terrible events of the Khmer Rouge regime at the Killing Fields, soak up the sunset across padi-fields and meet the incredible people of Cambodia.
Once you experience it you will never look back. You will go away with a sound idea of what your students, can learn, be a part of and how they can make an impact.

This delightful rural camp is set on the outskirts of Teuk Lich village within Beng Mealea commune. Accommodation is in the form of traditional Khmer stilted longhouses positioned in the shade of large banana and papaya trees. The camp is surrounded by paddy fields and pretty amazing views on all sides. On a clear day you can see the impressive ridge line of the Kulen National Park from your longhouse. And if that isn’t enough, there is the ancient ruined temple of Beng Mealea to explore only a short walk away, as well as a large ornate pagoda where the Buddhist monks live.
Beng Pae is located in the village of Ta Lek and within the Beng Pae Wildlife Reserve. Surrounded by impressive pine trees, the camp is designed and built in the local hill tribe house style.
