CBGA teams went on for the preparation for our People and Culture Tour. It is one of the new tour types from Cambodia Bird Guide Association that we are going to introduce for our guests from this coming year. This new project of eco-tourism will help local communities to welcome tourists to their villages for the local people to have an extra source of income directly from the tourists and to raise community fund for their local community development.
This tour will allow tourists to experience Cambodian’s local livelihood and the culture of Khmer people, as well as having direct interaction with the local people during their visit.
This project will be started with two-neighbors villages first nearby Siem Reap where villagers are still keeping their ancestor’s practices for making their living such as, blacksmithing, making incense sticks, making housewares products and handicraft souvenir products from vines, traditional weaving, collecting palm juice, making palm sugar, making Khmer noodles, making sticky rice cake in bamboo, and many more activities.
