About the project

“Our mission at Global Heritage Fund is to sustainably preserve the most significant and endangered cultural heritage sites in developing regions of the world. We envision a world where communities are empowered to view their heritage as precious, appreciate it as a fount of inspiration, and protect it as a pillar of the past and an enhancement to the future. Community Based Tourism ( CBT) is part of this improvement and development process. Tourism is an excellent long-term, sustainable and low-impact way to improve the livelihoods of the community. We are helping to protect the cultural heritage and environment, as well as increase income for villagers through tourism activities – homestays, tour guides, cooks and other activities.” If you want to find out more, have a look at their website

About the homestay

Banteay Chhmar is one of the greatest architectural masterpieces of the Khmer Kingdom’s epic Angkorian Period. Its extensive natural environment constitutes one of the most significant Khmer historical complexes in Cambodia, and for this reason it has remained since 1992 among Cambodia’s top-listed sites for nomination to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
