Khiri Travel Cambodia is very proud to have helped start Sambor Prei Kuk homestay project in Kampong Thom. Kampong Thom is roughly halfway between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh on highway no.6 that runs north of the Tonle Sap Lake. It takes 154km and three hours by car to get from Siem Reap to Kampong Thom. From Kampong Thom to Phnom Penh it takes roughly the same time and distance. The town is known for its 7th-9th century Khmer temple ruins. The Indian-influenced architecture is unique and pre-dates Angkor. Today there are about 50 temple ruins in Sambor Prei Kuk, all in a fairly good condition. And much fewer crowds than Angkor.

The location of the ruins makes for a great break for clients traveling overland between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

The aim of the homestay project in Sambo is to attract tourists and offer them an unforgettable time — and provide a livelihood for local villagers. The surrounding countryside is amazingly beautiful. With the villagers, people can even learn how to make noodles and plat rice. All of the community tourism services benefit the villagers directly.
