Explore the beauty of the country, and know more about the lifestyle and culture of the locals. Volunteering Solutions can arrange for amazing weekend tours for participants who wish to explore with the local coordinators. Explore Phnom Penh and visit the Killing Fields and the museums, that will tell you the story of Cambodia's dark past.
You can also go for the Mekong River Cruise. You can also head off to Siem Reap for the weekend and explore the Angkor Temple Complex. Other than Siem Reap, & Phnom Penh, you can travel to Sihanoukville, a coastal city in Cambodia which would be perfect for a relaxing weekend retreat.
2 Days Trip to Siem Reap
You must have always wanted to explore and gaze at the ruins of the Angkor Wat that dates back to 900 AD. Walk down the broken walls and admire the beauty of the carvings, soak in the aura of the Buddhism & Hinduism, get awed by the beauty of Bayon and get your perfect shot at Ta Prohm. You can also go for a boat ride on the Tonle Sap river, and see how the people live on the floating villages.
Day Trips in Phnom Penh
Even in the city of Phnom Penh, there’s so much to explore that you can actually make good use of the weekends! Start your day by visiting the Killing Fields - Choeung Ek, a place where millions of Cambodians were killed during the 1970s. Take the audio guided tour, and you’ll get to know about the dark past of the country, in utmost details. From there, head off to S21 Museum and then the National Museum. In the evening, visit the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda.
Weekend Trip to Sihanoukville
If you’re craving for the beaches in between your volunteering sojourn, then we can arrange a weekend getaway to Sihanoukville for you! It’s just about 4 hours bus ride from Phnom Penh, and you’ll be welcomed by white sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
Mekong River Cruise
There is no way better to explore Cambodia - the country of temples, than embarking on a Mekong river cruise. Hop on a cruise and gaze at the cityscape as you pass through Phnom Penh and slowly the views will change as you move outwards. It would be a perfect day trip, and you can indulge in savoring the delicious taste of Amok & steamed rice while onboard.

Volunteering in a group is always a good idea and it’s highly encouraged. We recommend our volunteers to come with their colleagues, friends or families.
Volunteering in a group improves productivity and it’s also safe when you venture out for sightseeing after your work. Also, we can design special group programs for groups of 5 or more. Our programs are designed to be safe, affordable and offer a great group volunteering experience to the volunteers.
