My wife and I were on our way to Vietnam, but when we heard that VN was already getting a bit spoiled with foreigners we decided at the last minute to go to Cambodia. Were we amazed!!!! Everyone at home (US) asked us the question....isn't Cambodia dangerous? Well I can't say for sure if there are not dangerous places in Cambodia, but we did not experience any issues. We think a lot of this was because of the great staff and careful attention to detail they provided us at Journey's Within.
The B and B was comfortable, everyone there was helpful and courteous and the meals (small price but big value), laundry service everyday (free) and the easy access to tours/drivers (20$/day)/Guides (25$/day) made it one of the most "luxurious" experiences we have ever had for the dollar (and we have lots of experience staying at the best hotels for both work and fun).
The US Ex-Pat couple who runs the business also support charitable causes and have a foundation where they provide financial support to local upstart business' and individual education. They can also hook you up with volunteering your services around the area, if you are so inclined. We ran into quite a few folks who were doing these types of activities and they seem to be quite fulfilled at the end of each day.
We would HIGHLY recommend JW for your stay in Cambodia!
