Typical day

  • The Professional Volunteer project will place you with a vetted legally registered Cambodian Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO ) or social enterprise based in Siem Reap province, guided according to  Cambodian laws, honoring and respecting the Cambodian culture and its religion. We therefore expect the same from you as a volunteer.
  • As part of the team, you will be typically reporting directly to the Managing Director , or an equally senior employee, as well as working with the local team and other volunteers. You will be able to work within a friendly, open and informal environment.
  • Working hours are from 08.00AM until 05.00PM, 5 days a week from Monday to Friday. You will be based out of the NGO offices in Siem Reap town and, occasionally, you may be required to visit the local rural communities.
  • It is also important to remember you are working with a grassroot organization with many daily operations, both large and small. As such, this role calls for a high measure of self-direction, motivation as well as a good dose of humility and respect.

Free-time activities

Siem Reap and the surrounding countryside has a variety of different activities for visitors and expats living in the area. Activities range from visiting the world’s largest temples at Angkor Wat, stop by a local countryside farm where you’ll learn how to cook traditional Khmer food, check into a local yoga retreat for a relaxing stay, lounge poolside at the many resorts in Siem Reap or take a trip to Kulen Mountain where you’ll find an abundance of pristine wildlife. Siem Reap also has a bustling art/cultural scene with events happening almost every weekend.

 Here some ideas…

Visit Temples
Some people only go to Cambodia to see the amazing Angkot Wat which is close to Siem Reap. Angkor Wat ruins are approximately 900 years old, and are part of an entire park that you could get lost in for hours. Two more beautiful temples that we recommend in Siem Reap are Angkor Thom and Ba Yon Temple. There you will see colossal carvings of Bodhisattva’s, elephants and intricate demons and gods. Just make sure that you don’t walk into the wrong room with shoes on!

 

Do a Yoga Retreat

Cambodia has hundreds of affordable, secluded and spiritually gratifying yoga experiences. Wake up to the sound of gongs, chant your heart out and truly relax and experience real yoga. You can stay anywhere from a few days to a few hours, and all yogi levels can find the right retreat for your needs.

Go to a Cambodian Market
Asian outdoor markets are often quite the eye-opener to Western visitors. Fresh vegetables, living fish and souvenirs all in one bustling place. Shop like a local but still get souvenirs, and finish the experience with some homemade noodles. We recommend the Old Market and the Night Market in Siem Reap centre or Psar Leau,, just a 5 minutes’ drive via tuk-tuk.

 

See the Cambodian Circus Show

Be mesmerized by the captivating choreography and hypnotic color of a Phare performance in Siem Reap on a 90-minute spectacle that blends riveting theater with folk music and distinctly Cambodian stories. Commend the determination of the young circus artists, many of who are from challenging social and economic backgrounds, as they hypnotize the audience with their energy and emotion. 


Visit the Cambodia Landmine Museum

If you’d like to learn more around the recent war history in Cambodia and how landmines are still a serious threat for Cambodians, then the visit to the Cambodian Landmine museum founded by ex-child soldier Aki Ra is a must.  

Join Cooking classes 

Stir and chop your way through entertaining hands-on cooking classes exploring the local cuisine

Participate to Pottery classes

If you are looking for a fun and memorable creative experience, you can learn about clay pottery Khmer style and produce your own artistic inspired Cambodian bowl.
