I dare you to become a Siem Reap farmer...
I’ll never forget the day I became a Cambodian. It all started when my sister and I took a tour program called "A day with Cambodians" or something like that, sorry forgot. This experience staggered me because this program forced us to be a traditional Siem Reap people.
So the travel guide took us to a village quite far from the city, and we were given an uncultivated land. The main goal here was to help the owner plant seeds on his land. Man it was a tough job, I never did this kind of work before, so it was a challenge for me.
There we were planting some corn seeds and beans at 12 o’clock, and the day was really hot. We were sweating a lot and our hands were mixed with fertilizer and dirt. Some of them were still hard, so I asked what it was, and the farmer said that it was cow dung. Yahooo..
After we finished cultivating the land, we had lunch at the owners’ house, eating Cambodian food and it was good. If you’re going to Siem reap, ask you travel company and try this activity if you’re looking to do something new besides sightseeing on the temples.
Hope this helps...thanks for the webmaster for making this great website.
