The experience

You will see skirts and dresses our host Voleak makes on demand for weddings and official occasions. She is also growing flowers and plants  on the balcony in front of her room. Since she likes to recycle, you will learn to make some flower pots from used straws she collects at the market. If you are there for dinner you can see sun set from her room, such a nice view. You will eat together and have a chat with her and our team member about the daily life in Cambodia and how she likes the life of a single woman
