Phnom Penh is also a good base for trips through the country as it is very central. Bus tickets to nearby locations are readily available for purchase at your guesthouse, departing to many different locations in Cambodia and neighboring countries at many times throughout the day. These tickets are generally very inexpensive and can range between $8-$12. Common destinations include Angkor Wat and Siem Reap (5-6 hours), the beaches of Sihanoukville (four hours), Kampot (3 hours), and Battambang (5-6 hours).
YOUR STAY IN SIEM REAP
All volunteers will stay at the volunteer guesthouse. The guesthouse is located just a 10 minutes from the happening down town area. It is one of the finest and most reasonably priced guesthouses in Siem Reap. It features many of the same luxuries as our guest houses in Phnom Penh. As in Phnom Pehn, most volunteers choose to share rooms, however, single rooms can be organized for those that desire.
You will be provided with three meals a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner at each of our guest houses. Khmer cuisine shares many commonalities with the food of neighboring Thailand and Vietnam and commonly contains rice, vegetables, or noodles. The kitchens are open from 6:00AM to 9:00PM and there are no restrictions on which selections can be chosen. Breakfast typically includes coffee, tea, and juice with bread or eggs. Lunch and dinner meals typically consist of rice, noodles, soup, vegetables, beef, fish, pork and fruit. If your workplace is not close to guesthouse you also can ask the guesthouse to pack a lunch for you.
