Formerly a refuge from the Khmer Rouge, Koh Andet (Floating Island) is across the river and in front of your tent. Today it is a peaceful home to a dozen farming families.
While you might be tempted to be cocooned in the comfort of your tent, we strongly encourage you to share the lives of our neighbours. This informal but deep experience will surely make your stay memorable.
Meeting people from different cultures is one of the best reasons to step outside your tent – the stuff of lifelong memories.
Cambodia is an enticing country, and the Khmers are graceful and charming, always ready to greet you with a big smile. Take the opportunity to crack open your phrasebook, and practice the local language
Taking a good portrait shot can be a photographer’s biggest challenge. But it’s not just about camera settings, it’s about making friends too, yet more rewarding. Encounters with people can give you some of the best memories.
Just take your camera, the most important thing is to like people, respect them and be genuinely interested in them.
