The Aviary Hotel is introducing its Connect with Community & Culture Package available from now to October 31.
The package will let guests base themselves at the hotel for two nights before venturing out to explore the essence of Cambodian life and nature via guided tours.
Guests can interact with the community throughout the tour by engaging in the preparation and tasting of local cuisine and through an enlightening experience at a pagoda. They will also have the chance to witness and interact with different Cambodian villages that have their own unique identity and lifestyles – on both land and water.
The two experiences available include Wat Luang Proleung, where guests can observe the sacred rituals that are still practised today, receive a water monk blessing for luck, and watch a traditional Khmer dance known as Chhayam.
At Kampong Khleang, a village built on high stilts on the Tonle Sap, guests will embark on a tour of the village on a private boat ride and observe how the villagers commute via boats, earning a livelihood via floating markets and fishing for the next biggest catch.
The package starts from US$446 for two guests, and comprises two-nights’ stay at The Aviary, a one-day countryside tour (bottled water and lunch provided), roundtrip airport transfers, free room upgrade, late check-out and daily breakfast.
