Voluntourism

Today was my first day in "the office". That means, I was assisting Nataly doing quotations at Exotissimo. Really interesting, how it works, how many details you have to keep in mind.

As we were talking about tourism, she told me about the next big thing in Cambodia, called voluntourism. That means, you spend some days in a NGO-Project, building up houses in the countryside or teaching children. And of course you can combine it with some nice days in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

Sounds really interesting, I will write an article about it in the next days. Tomorrow starts our trip to Battambang and Siem Reap. I have my video-equipment with me - so stay tuned for some great movies :-)

Hi Thomas, I found your new cambodian blog. Great. Also we have here in Frankfurt the Youth Action for Peace (YAP) Germany: http://www.yap-cfd.de for voluntary service. A friend of mine is organisating this. :-) burkhard
