Staying a day or two (or more) at Chambok allows visitors to experience the full range of what our community has to offer – from exploring the natural landscape, to interacting with villagers, and sampling local cuisine.
The three main facilities we provide that help ensure a warm welcome for all our guests are: the Women’s Restaurant, village Homestays, and our Visitors Center.
Run by a rotating roster of 328 women, the Women’s Restaurant is a special part of every visitor’s stay in Chambok. All meals are made from locally sourced ingredients and are freshly prepared using traditional cooking methods.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to all guests – including those booked into one of our homestays. This insures that the money paid for meals does not go to just one family, but is spread throughout the community.
Chambok has a collection of 42 homestays spread across its 9 villages, each one providing a family welcome to their guests.
Homestays offer a unique insight into everyday village life and give visitors a chance to connect with local people. Most families farm smallholdings, growing rice and vegetables while also raising a few cows, chickens and pigs.
As with most rural homes in Cambodia – our homestays have no or very limited electricity. Fresh water is available for washing. Beds come complete with mosquito nets.
Guests might want to bring their own flashlight, toiletries and towel.
Our Visitors Center is comprised of our Women’s Restaurant and Performance Center, along with with lots of tables and chairs for taking a break. It often serves as a meeting place for both visitors and locals alike.
If you feel like just relaxing, there are hammocks available for hire – along with lots of trees to tie them to, just pick your spot!
There is also a small exhibition about Chambok, its flora and fawna, as well as the development of ecotourism in the community.
We hope to one day also house a library on the premises (donations welcome ☺)
