Details Itinerary:
 
Day 1: Arrive in Phnom Penh
Up on arrival in Phnom Penh airport you will be met our guide and will transfer to hotel. The same afternoon take a short walk from the Royal Palace and the banks of the mighty Tonle Sap – the river that flows backwards. After an introductory briefing, we’ll visit Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, the Royal Palace, and enjoy a welcome dinner at Friends Restaurant, a vocational training NGO supporting some of Phnom Penh's 20,000 street kids. Overnight in Phnom
 
Day 2: Phnom Penh visits
Exploring Cambodia’s historical and cultural landscape, we start with an early morning visit to the Killing Fields. On the outskirts of Phnom Penh, the Killing Fields were used as a mass grave during the Khmer Rouge era. Many of the graves have been left untouched, a memorial has been erected and today, they are surprisingly peaceful. We return to the city and lunch at Lotus Blanc, an inspiring NGO that provides vocational training and support for young people from the Stung Meanchey dump community. We then take a short visit to the dump and an orphanage on its outskirts, to gain some insight into life in these marginalized communities. Lightening up this afternoon, we visit the Russian Market and enjoy a Seeing Hands Massage.
 
Day 3: Overland Excursion to Siem Reap
After breakfast at hotel, overland excursion to Siem Reap on the way explore Sambor Prei Kuk, located 35 km northeast of Kompong Thom, lunch at local restaurant.
Visit the ancient capital of Chenla with its 100 temples dating from the Pre-Angkorian period. Return to Kompong Thom and continue to Siem Reap. En route, visit traditional villages and stop at the ancient Naga Bridge (Spean Pratpo), located 40 km from Siem Reap. Arrive in Siem Reap and transfer to the hotel. Overnight in Siem Reap
Day 4: Siem Reap volunteer day
Today will be a challenging and rewarding day of hands-on work with NGO that assists poor communities to improve their housing and living conditions. The morning and early afternoon will be spent working with Cambodian NGOs to support the poverty communities, to build a simple home for a community member – often a solo mother or widow. We return to hotel for an early dinner before watching a performance from children at the Siem Reap Traditional Music and Dance School.
 
Day 5: Siem Reap volunteer day
Today will be a challenging and rewarding day of hands-on work with NGO that assists poor communities to improve their housing and living conditions. The morning and early afternoon will be spent working with Cambodian NGOs to support the poverty communities, to build a simple home for a community member – often a solo mother or widow. We return to hotel for an early dinner before watching a performance from children at the Siem Reap Traditional Music and Dance School. Overnight in Siem Reap
 
Day 6: Angkor Temples Complex
After breakfast, visit Prasat Kravan with its unique brick sculptures and Ta Prohm.  One of the area's most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Its appeal lies in the fact that, unlike the other monuments of Angkor, it was abandoned and swallowed by the jungle, looking very much the ways most of the Angkor temples appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. Visit as well Takeo, Chau Say Tevoda and Thommanon, and lunch at local Restaurant.
 
In the afternoon, visit Preah Khan temple, built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is, like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Continue your visits to Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool and representing the paradisiacal Himalayan mountain-lake and visit the temple of East Mebon (guarded at its corner by stone figures of harnessed elephants, some of which are still in a reasonable state of preservation) as well as Srah Srang ("The Royal Baths"), undoubtedly used in the past for ritual bathing. Overnight in Siem Reap
 
Day 7: Visit Angkor Wat & Angkor Thom
After breakfast at hotel, in the morning, visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat's five towers symbolize Meru's five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond, and lunch at local Restaurant.
In the afternoon, visit the ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century), see the South Gate with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk, Bayon temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with 216 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara), the Elephants Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas until sunset on natural hill Phnom Bakheng. Overnight in Siem Reap
Day 8: Visit Banteay Srey, Landmine Museum & Angkor Children's Hospital
After breakfast, we drive to Banteay Srei temple (10th century), regarded as the jewel in the crown of classical Khmer Art. On the way back visit the Landmine Museum then Banteay Samre, built in the third quarter of the 12th century. It consists of a central temple with four wings preceded by a hall and accompanied by two libraries, the southern example remarkably well preserved. In the afternoon visit the Angkor Children's Hospital and the Artisans D'Angkor Workshop (silk weaving NGO). Overnight in Siem Reap
 
Day 9: Explore Floating Village - Departure
After breakfast, we head out to floating village and take an excursion in a traditional wooden boat on the Tonle Sap Lake, the “Great Lake” of Cambodia, one of the largest in Asia.  Explore local markets (if time permits). Transfer to Siem Reap International Airport for departure flight to the next destination. End of Services

 These are our  below volunteer projects would offer for organizations as well as

Community English Classes
We provide an opportunity for children in rural areas to learn, develop and practice their English language skills and we have an English class for teaching kids six days in a week for an hour per day.

We teach the basics of English communication, so they can not only talk to us but can practice with each other and any other English speakers that they come across.  If they enjoy their classes they often bring their friends along with them to learn so they have more people to practice with outside of the classroom. Students are also taught how to read and write in English, giving them well-rounded and comprehensive English language skills.
 English is a useful tool to any of those who want to get a job, especially in the Siem Reap area, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia, with millions of visitors each year, the employment opportunities for those locals who are able to speak English are much greater than those who have never learned.
Clean Water Provision
We provide families and communities with sustainable sources of fresh, clean water that is available all year round; thereby having a positive bearing on the health and wellbeing of such communities. Water is crucial to life. We all need it. Without it we die. In Cambodia clean water is still not readily available to most.
Pump Well Installation
Many households in the communities that we work with rely on ponds and open wells as their only recourse to water. As this water is sourced from such a shallow level, it is far from clean and safe. 
We work with such households in order to drill boreholes of up to 100 meters and install new water pumps. We only drill to subterranean levels to ensure the water is fresh and clean and we don’t drill during the wet season so that we can guarantee that the water will still be available during the dry months and therefore that the household, and their community, has a continuous supply of fresh, quality water. 
Every time we install a new borehole and pump we notice a remarkable improvement in the lives of those who now have access to the clean water.  Reduced illness, improved hydration and ability to grow food are immediate benefits which are visible within weeks.
Water Filter Distribution
Sometimes when we refurbish a pump for a family we find that the water that the pump is pulling through is not clean because the borehole has not been drilled deep enough and is therefore only providing access to the surface water table. Taking such pumps apart again and re-drilling the borehole to subterranean levels would cost the same as it would for us to install a brand new pump!
In other cases, even when we drill a new borehole to subterranean levels we can find that the pump is still pulling through dirty water. This is because in some areas in the Siem Reap province the water at subterranean levels still contains impurities such as iron, magnesium and, occasionally, arsenic. 
In both of these cases the most economical and effective solution is to provide such families with a water filter. We distribute two different kinds of water filters, depending on the circumstances. 
In most cases where we are not 100% satisfied with the purity of a water source, we distribute clay pot filters. These are both cheap and very effective: one study found there to be 99.99% less E Coli in clay pot treated water versus untreated water, leading to half the number of cases of diarrhea in households using the filter compared to those who were not.  
In cases where there are more serious concerns about the safety of a water source, or if there are more than one family using the source then we opt for the more expensive Bio-Sand Filters: which remove 95-99% of organic contaminants, including bacteria, viruses, worms, protozoa and particles and are more suited to communal use as they can filter between 20-60 liters of water per hour. 
Sanitation (Toilet, Shower, Hygiene)
 To prevent the spread of disease and illness caused by poor sanitation and hygiene by providing rural communities with access to improved sanitation facilities and educating communities about the importance of good hygiene practice. 
With such poor standards of sanitation in rural areas and with such a high death rate caused by diarrhea disease, especially amongst children, this could therefore not be a more pivotal development objective for Cambodia. However, at the current rate rural communities are gaining access to improved sanitation facilities, it would take Cambodia 150 years to reach the goal of achieving universal coverage by 2025 (IRIN Asia, 2008)
Habitat Construction
Without a hygienic and safe place to live, people are more susceptible to serious health problems, and their quality of life is severely reduced as they are exposed to the harshness of the elements with no place for retreat.  We build and repair houses for the some of the most vulnerable members of the community, to give them a little more than a roof over their heads.
Habitat construction is targeted primarily at the poorest families of the communities that we work with, especially those who have suffered greatly from death or disease, as there is little hope that such families could ever build decent houses on their own without external financial assistance.
When we construct a new house we first lay stone or concrete footings in order to give it a strong, durable foundation. We then erect upright posts of timber before we start on installing the floors, stairs. All of the timber we use is of the highest quality to ensure that it lasts as long as possible. Next, we add a corrugated iron or thatch roof and walls of timber or palm thatch. Finally, we install the windows and work on any other finishing touches that the new house may need.
Habitat Repairs & Refurbishments
Most of the houses in rural Siem Reap are made of timber and thatch. However, the timber and thatch that is used is often the cheapest variety, and therefore of an inadequate quality to build a decent house from. Houses are also frequently poorly constructed, meaning that they regularly need expensive repairs, especially after a few years of wear and tear or a period of severe weather conditions. High levels of poverty in rural Siem Reap therefore mean that such houses can be left in a state of disrepair for a long time before anything can be done about it, often causing families to live in dangerous living conditions. 
We assist such families with repairs and refurbishments that they otherwise could have afforded. Our first priorities are providing assistance to families whose homes have deteriorated to such an extent that they now pose a health and safety hazard to the family. Typically, such support takes the form of repairing and refurbishing roofs, walls, floors and stairs.
As with habitat construction, we also provide assistance to other households with their surrounding living environments, such as allotments, chicken coops and other animal pens. 
Gifts In Kind
 If you are visiting Cambodia and would like to make a material donation to the poverty people, our tour guide will take you to rural areas and then you can contribute your items as well as clothes, hats, shoes, towels, soaps, toothpaste, brushes and other commodities you may have always appreciate.
Medical Services
Throughout Cambodia rural communities with ethnic minorities inhabit some of the most mountainous and remote regions. The living conditions are terrible and doctors and hospitals are far away. Asia Travel Needs sponsors and co-ordinates medical service projects with treks into these remote regions. This enables the minority communities to receive regular health check-ups and for children to be immunized.  

Foster Home
Cambodia has an unusually large amount of orphans even for a developing country - one of the many scars of decades of war & conflict which have plagued this beautiful Country. When children are orphaned sometimes they are cared for by the local community, but all too often they are taken in and used as a form of slave labor, as has been the case with many orphans, who are living in a state of servitude to the local community.
Foster Home is aim to gather all homeless children and orphans keeping them in safe haven and giving them the fun and enriching childhood they deserve, and send them out into the world as young adults ready to prosper. We ensure that all children adhere to high standards of personal hygiene, and that they are provided with clothing, a nutritious & varied diet, a safe and comfortable place to sleep and medical care. In addition, each child receives individual care and attention to their physical and emotional needs.
School Building Project
The educational system in Cambodia provides two shifts a day is morning and afternoon classes because the classroom is overcrowded (45 students per classroom) and the students often have to travel long distances each day to get to a school that offers a full curriculum. However, the cost of education is a heavy burden in Cambodia’s remote areas. Parents who cannot afford to educate all of their children are forced to choose who can attend school. Teachers are paid as little as $40 a month, and often eke out a livelihood with additional jobs that take them away from the classroom.
 In addition, our vision is to find a fundraising for creating world-class learning environment in order to improve education in Cambodia. 
Set Up a Library (Stationeries Need)
It's very important for students not only to learn about what's going on in the world but also to gain a sense that they really can make a difference. To set up room to read may help improving their knowledge and understanding customs, laws, histories and other issues surrounding.
One of the great educational needs was for affordable Khmer and Khmer/ English language books that would meet the demand of young readers and improve the reading culture. Together, we may help them as well as stationeries including English dictionaries, Historical books, social books and others library equipments
Orphanage Support
To provide assistance to orphanages in Siem Reap with the aim of increasing attendance, improving the quality of education and helping to create a harmonious environment in which young students can develop, prosper and realize their full potential.
