My visit to Amica project has been a good surprise and I would definitely recommend to go there and especially during the rainy season, you could admire the beautiful landscape of rice field. So what does it make special ?
In Cheung kok village, the site offers many experiences in term of local, tradition, culture, history and heritage. there are visisble signs of unique culture and tradition life in most Cambodian villages.
The members of the local community are very welcoming and friendly event they don't speak all good english. . We felt like being friends of them and it was one of the strongest points of the visit. People opened their home to us and enabled us to be part of their community for the few days we spent there. As the village is relatively small, after few hours visitors had the feeling that they knew local area.
You can spend a night there to see the famous bamboo bridge and and the Phnom Srey and Phnom Sros temples. You should rent a bike and look around, it is a nice experience.
Nobody speak English at the site, but it is beautiful.
Amica is a very nice project; so far It is one the best project I saw in terms of sustainability and eco tourism. It is a real community where you do feel like living as a resident. You eat with the host family who does cook very well, you play with the children… Every members of the village is pleased to welcome you. So far, there are not so many activities to do if you stay more than one day. However, I can real experienced the Cambodian rural life and see the work of the weavers and of the farmer working in the rice field. The NGO amica succeed to involve the village in the ecotourism project that I never saw it before! So I really recommend it to come and meet Aline, our fantastic local guide!
