    Cultural excursions

    Wondering what you’re going to do with your precious free time? We’re glad you asked! We know your adventure bucket list is long, but make sure you tack these recommendations from past TEFL interns in Cambodia towards the top!


    Chill out in gorgeous, peaceful Kampot, where you can climb Bokor Mountain on motorbike to find Popokvil Waterfall before taking a sunset river cruise to see the fireflies.


    Bugs were the main source of protein during the Pol Pot regime, and you’d be surprised how well a can of spiced snails pairs with Angkor beers and conversation.


    You + sunrise + a 12th century Hindu (now Buddhist) temple = a daybreak to remember. Buy your tickets & book your 5am tuk tuk in advance to avoid the queues.
