Lighten your environmental impact
Siem Reap is a wonderful town to see by bicycle or on foot. We encourage you to hop on your bicycle for a spin, or simply walk around town.
Have your complimentary Naga Earth water bottle and shopping bag with you. Cambodia has a serious plastic problem. Please avoid plastic water bottles, plastic bags and all single use plastic while you are here.
respect local wildlife
Elephants here are terribly mistreated in order to get them to carry tourists around, and in some cases ridden to death. We partner with Ride Bikes not Elephants
Monkeys should not be fed. The monkeys around Angkor Wat Archeological Park are forgetting how to fend for themselves and relying on tourists for food.
It's usually not good to visit orphanages
Don't give money or buy milk for beggars. Giving money to street children encourages them to stay on the street. Instead, be a part of a better solution by supporting one of the many great organizations working here.
