The Community‐Based Ecotourism Site- Reasmey Phum Piri Kiri Boeung Kranhak was established in 2014 and officially recognized by the Kampong Thom Provincial Governor on October 2, 2015. It lies within two officially‐designated community forests and consists of a beautiful natural lake surrounded by forest on the eastern shore, and covers an area of 193 hectares.
It is important to know that this site is relatively new and has had only a limited number of travellers. There is very limited English, but in exchange guests get a "real" Cambodian experience.
We may be biased, but we reckon that whatever your age, whatever your life experience and whatever the purpose, duration or type of vacation you imagined, sustainable tourism in the Kingdom of Wonder might just change the way you travel forever. With a range of homestays and carefully selected ecotourism sites in beautiful locations throughout Cambodia, there is something for every style and taste.
