Most volunteers stay in Siem Reap, a lively town that makes a great holiday base - close to the Angkor Temples, and just 12 kms west of Savong's School which is east along Highway 6. Siem Reap has a lively night life, excellent restaurants, fun bars and good nightclubs with a distinctive Cambodian twist.
But how to get out to the school? The best way to arrange transport from your Guest House or hotel is to phone Savong the day before. +855 12 531 037. He'll arrange somebody to pick you up at an agreed time - perhaps a motorbike if there's one of you, or the new school tuk tuk kindly donated by an Australian family.
We're a school in a poor region, not a free transport service! So there is a charge to cover petrol which is very expensive in Cambodia, and to cover the driver to whom we pay a basic salary each month.
Return cost to town. $US10.00 for one person. For people sharing a tuktuk the cost is lower: $US4.00 per person.
