We are visiting Cambodia with our two young children (4 and 1) and came to Battambang to stay with my husband’s aunt and uncle! We were lucky enough to spend the morning with Lumrong and her family in their village. We got to visit their school where they teach the children English. They were so welcoming and our kids had so much fun playing and exploring the village. We took a short walk to the local market and bought ingredients for lunch and they cooked us a delicious lunch. My kids have never eaten so many vegetables as they did that day, they loved it!! We also got to meet Lumrong’s father who hand carves cow bells which are so beautiful. We bought a bunch of them as they make beautiful gifts for friends and family back home. The family members were also generous enough to share some of their stories of how they were affected by Khmer Rouge, their school experiences growing up in the village and how that has inspired them to be parents and teachers. It was such a heart warming experience for the whole family, and something I’ve never experienced on any of my other travels. When I asked my four year old what he thought after we got back home that afternoon, he said “it was kind of awesome”! My family and I can not recommend visiting Cambodia, and in particular Battambang enough. By far one of the most beautiful countries and people I’ve experienced. We feel so blessed to be here and be able to have our young family with us to enjoy and learn. Exploring other parts of Battambang, it is amazing to see how it is growing and developing and we really look forward to coming back again (hopefully next Christmas when it’s a bit cooler) and will definitely be visiting our friends Lumrong and her family!

We truly enjoyed our half day Village Experience. It was authentic and real. Even my teenage boys enjoyed interacting with the local kids in the school. We all had a great time going to the market to get the ingredients for our lunch and then helping the family prepare the lunch. We don't usually go on the tours since we find them to be more of a tourist trap than anything else. This was difintely the opposite.

This experience was truly special the hospitality shown and the kindness of the hosts are amazing. We were able to visit a traditional Cambodian family and have the pleasure of spending the morning with them. You will meet the extended family visit a local market to buy the food for your meal later, visit the farm where Lumorng’s mother and sister work to see how the fruit and vegetables grow. Once back home they will show you how to cook a traditional meal which was delicious. Lumorng then took us on a walk around her neighbourhood we visited the health clinic and met a new Mum with her tiny baby, then we went to visit the children’s school it was break time and everyone was so welcoming and friendly. I can not recommend this enough. Phin is Lumorngs husband and the safest and best tuc tuc driver. He took us to their beautiful Baha’i temple on the way home a serene and peaceful building. Phin was our driver for all our time in Battenbang and he is simply fantastic. I will be telling all my friends about this day. We Thank the family so much for the best day in Cambodia

We spent half a day with the lovely family. Phin and Lumorng took great care of us. Phin collected us at our hostel in the morning and drove us to their village, which is close to the center of Battambang. He and his wife Lumorng showed us their home, introduced us to their family and she took us to the market to buy ingredients for a delicious meal, we cooked together. We also visited a school nearby. It felt more like a day with our family than a typical touristic tour. Moreover, they support children in their community by teaching English and speak fluent English themselves. Pinh also works as a Tuktuk driver and he drove us to the Bat Cave in the afternoon. If you're in Battambang and need a driver, hire him. He is the best! :-) We can highly recommend to visit their home.

There are lots of amazing things to see and do in Cambodia, and this is one of the best days I experienced. Most people only see rural Cambodian life from the windows of their bus. This tour takes you to a rural village near Battambang to experience the day-to-day life there, as well get a little pampering on the side. Lumorng and her entire extended family take care of your group, right from the tuk tuk drivers who pick you up from your hotel and take you the short distance outside of Battambang to their rural village (Bos Po). You get a tour of Lumorng's family's farm and home, and a stroll through the village to the market to pick up the fresh produce and fish for the meal that will be prepared for you at their place. The extended family includes babies right up to elderly family members, and they are all excited to see you and share their stories. Lumorng is also a teacher at an English school in Battambang, and has an outdoor classroom where children of the village are given English tutoring to supplement the village school. The day includes optional manicures, pedicures, or hot shaves, and just sitting in the classroom or the platform resting area, talking and watching the babies being rocked in the traditional rope and blanket cradle. The meal is being cooked by the older women of the family in an outdoor kitchen where you can watch their preparations. The whole family participates in serving the traditional Cambodian food, which is probably going to be the best you will taste during your visit to Cambodia. Everything is very clean, organized, and comfortable, including the traditional Cambodian toilet building. When you leave their home, you will know that you have made some new friends and had an experience you will never forget.
