WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will be met in Siem Reap airport on Monday by your project representative, who will escort you to your accommodation, introduce you to your new colleagues and give you a health and safety talk. For those arriving outside of these dates alternative arrangements apply.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
This project benefits from a wonderful location, as you will be staying in the vibrant tourist town of Siem Reap. Siem Reap is actually a cluster of ancient villages grouped round a collection of individual pagodas, and these traditional structures at the heart of the town contrast with the elegant overlay of the French colonial era centre. Your accommodation will be at the Frontier volunteer house in Siem Reap and you will be sharing with our field staff and other volunteers.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You will be provided with two meals per day (breakfast and lunch). In the evenings, you can visit the reasonably priced local restaurants and street food outlets to sample traditional Cambodian cuisine, enjoying dishes such as delicately spiced curries made with fresh market produce and delicious meat, fish and vegetables. Try specialities such as: Amok curry, based on coconut milk, or a herb and spice paste known as kroeung, oriental squash, unusual vegetables such as winter melon, luffa and yardlong bean, or ngam nguv, a chicken soup flavoured with whole preserved lemons. Vegetarian diets can be accommodated easily in Cambodia.
HOW WILL I GET TO WORK?
Transport from your accommodation to your placement each day will be by local bus, taxi (cost not included) or by foot.
