Chris Harnby review 5 May 2018
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
The whole immersion in another culture was educational and we loved it all.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Probably not go near monsoon although there were less tourists then.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Absolutely, although not sure about the large outlet selling a variety of crafts. My friend spent quite a lot and the manager/owner asked why I did not purchase anything although we were told there was no obligation. Not sure if the craftsmen benefitted much.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
A thoroughly wonderful vacation though we were lucky to be the only three on the trip which gave us comfortable journeys

We're delighted that you and your friends had such a positive experience of Cambodia. It certainly is a fascinating country. A word about the craft center. We presume you are referring to Artisan's D'Angkor workshop and boutique. We have chosen to include this organisation as they train underprivileged children to make handicrafts, however we appreciate it can be seen as pricey for the region. As you say, there was no obligation, and we regret that you were made to feel under pressure. This should not have been the case.
