We were only in Sihanoukville for one day on a cruise, but decided to eschew the ship's tours for one provided by the students and the Don Bosco Hotel school--we are so glad we did! Our enthusiastic guide and two students met us at the cruise ship, took us to see the fishing village, the waterfall (kind of disappointing in dry season, but probably inaccessible during rainy season), to their gelateria for a snack, to the local market, and to the hotel school for a Khmer cooking demonstration and a lovely lunch. It was such fun. Alex, the volunteer chef, and his students prepared a lovely meal with French service, and we had live vocal and guitar music to entertain us. If you are going to be in Sihanoukville--which is a port that is impoverished and lacking in infrastructure, a visit to the Don Bosco school and tour arranged through them is sure to leave you with a smile. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A quiet peaceful retreat away from the noisy tourist areas of Sihanoukville. This hotel is also a training center for youths from all over Cambodia who wish to learn ASEAN-standard skills that would enable them to find work in the hospitality industry. Many students would also be learning English for the first time during their 2 years' study at the hotel. Some may already speak your language if they were supported or raised in an orphanage run by people from overseas! The hotel is located about 2 kms from the city and about 3 kms from the beaches. The Don Bosco Foundation of Cambodia is a not-for-profit NGO that has been working with disadvantaged children, youths and families for about 30 years. By supporting us, you are also supporting many children, youths and families of Cambodia. ... more less
