Globalteer has bid a fond farewell and moved out of Globalteer House in Siem Reap, which was home to our South East Asian HQ and provided accommodation for volunteers with our Cambodia Community Project since 2007.
All volunteers with Globalteer’s Siem Reap-based Cambodia community project, clean water project and food and farming project will now stay in a popular Cambodian owned guest house near the centre of Siem Reap, and will enjoy a host of new benefits designed to make your stay with us even more enjoyable.
Volunteers can still choose between fan-only and air-conditioned rooms, and along with the usual comforts of your own private room with en-suite shower and toilet, and cable TV, rooms now have their own fridge – perfect for that midnight snack or a few cold beers – and free breakfast, a selection of western and Khmer favourites is also now included for every volunteer, seven days a week.
As well as its own restaurant where you can also take lunch or dinner if you fancy a night in, the guest house has a basic bar, internet room, free wi-fi and plenty of comfortable areas to socialise with fellow volunteers as well as other guests staying in the guest house. There is also a handy white board for volunteers to leave messages for each other, such as arranging nights out or sharing tips for bars and restaurants in town.
Globalteer’s new offices are located in a new building just around the corner from the guest house so it’s still as easy as ever to find a member of our Siem Reap based team if you want to talk to someone in person rather than on your mobile. The office also houses our very popular fair trade shop where you can buy souvenirs or gifts from a range of unique products made in Siem Reap by NGOs that Globalteer works with – and 100% of proceeds go direct to the NGOs.
In addition to the creature comforts at the new guest house we are also delighted to announce that free transportation to and from volunteer projects is now included for every volunteer, five days a week. From now on not only will volunteers be given free use of a bicycle to get around town – particularly useful at weekends – we also provide free tuk-tuk transfers every morning and evening with one of our friendly and trusted drivers.
We are confident that all of the new benefits will make volunteers’ stays more comfortable, more enjoyable and more hassle-free which will make your volunteering trip better for you, and therefore better for your project. And of course saving money on breakfasts and on transport to your project will help you to save money, so maybe you could even consider staying a little longer!
