Sambor Prei Kuk Community-Based Tourism (CBT) Isanborei, Kampong Thom

The Community-Based Tourism (CBT) project at Sambor Prei Kuk aims to create jobs and build capacity in the tourism sector by increasing the number of visitors to the ruins and local homestays in a sustainable manner.

The main attractions are the temple ruins of Isanapura (Isanborei), a pre-Angkorian Kingdom dating back to the 7th Century.

More than 150 temples can be explored on foot and by bicycle, led by guides from the community who know the area well and are able to relate historical facts as well as provide insight on day-to-day live in rural Cambodia.

There are a number of homestays in the community that provide visitors a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in traditional Cambodian village life.

Khiri Reach supports the project through marketing, quality control and technical advice.
