Adventure Loop Travel is works closely with a local family and each tour return back to villagers some benefits to support their daily living. In Cambodia people dress rather conservatively. Men usually wear long pants and long sleeved shirts, and women do not usually wear low-cut or revealing clothing. Visitors are not necessarily expected to dress like local people, but common sense and a respect for local custom should guide you in how you dress. There are no nude beaches in Cambodia, and being nude or topless in public at the beach or pool is not done. It is customary to remove ones shoes when going into some ones house. Also some guesthouses require guests to leave their shoes at the entrance. If you are ever unsure if you need to remove your shoes, ask someone, or look for other shoes left at the entrance. We all want to have a clean environment. However, local people often seem oblivious to the pollution around them. But you can set an example by not throwing your trash around. It may not always be possible to find a trash can, so keep your trash with you until you can dispose of it properly. Plastic bags are a major cause of pollution. When shopping, put your purchases in your bag or backpack so you do not have to take plastic bags. If you do take plastic bags, try to reuse them. To make your trip more enjoyable, as well as informative, you should try to know as much as you can about the countries you will visit. Knowing about local culture. Tradition and history, as well knowing about the places you will see, will make your trip that much more satisfying What to Wear We recommend that you wear sturdy footwear like trainers / sneakers. Long sleeves and pants are ideal - we also suggest sunglasses and a hat. Please refrain from wearing revealing clothing in villages. Responsible for Village Interaction As stated above, always ask local people before photographing them. Even when photographing children, ask beforehand. It is recommended that you not buy from children selling on the streets on the theory that this encourages them to be on the street, and they wont go to school. However, they are bringing income to their families, and they are learning about entrepreneurship. Use your own judgment regarding this. But it is advised not to give money to begging children, especially those carrying babies. There will always be an adult handler nearby waiting to take the money. You may bring toys for children at an orphanage or school, however please do not bring battery operated toys, or toy guns or other toy weapons. It is also illegal to purchase any wildlife products from endangered species. After habitat destruction, the illegal trade in wildlife is the second largest threat to species extinction. As much as possible, try local food. You never know what you may like. Also try fresh fruit from the local market.
