Why are we trekking Cambodia?

According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF 3.5 million (22%) people in Cambodia don’t have access to safe water. 6.5 million (41%) people in Cambodia don’t have access to adequate sanitation.

Despite its growing tourism industry, and the benefit that this brings, Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Still recovering from the Khmer Rouge regime, the country lacks skilled engineers and health professionals. Many of the rural communities Just a Drop work with rely on Cambodia’s largest industry, agriculture, as a source of income. A lack of infrastructure and the effects of climate change, which has created severe droughts followed by extreme flooding, has hindered development. Nearly half of the population lives in poverty.

Cambodia has high rainfall and is prone to flooding, so although there’s not a lack of groundwater, much of this is contaminated and not safe to drink. WASH solutions in Cambodia address these issues of water contamination and storage; and increasing sanitation facilities.

Just a Drop work with village communities in rural areas around Siem Reap to build and repair shallow hand-dug wells, and provide bio-sand filters, latrines and hygiene training. We ensure villages have a sustainable source of water, which is protected from contamination.

Victoria Mekong River Cruise Itinerary

The charming capital of Phnom Penh was once known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ for its French colonial buildings, tree-lined boulevards and scenic river walk. Against the backdrop of a traditional musical performance, board the Victoria Mekong cruise ship at Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh’s downtown riverside promenade. As the sun sets on the Tonie Sap River, linger over a sundowner on the sun deck while taking in a performance of Khmer Apsara dancing by a troupe of local dancers with the opportunity to meet them afterward. As day turns into night, sit down to a gala dinner to officially welcome you aboard your Victoria Mekong Cruise. Tonight, the ship overnights in Phnom Penh.
Cruise from Phnom Penh to Tan Chau, including border crossing. Enjoy on-board entertainment including a cocktail competition. As the ship begins cruising towards the Cambodia-Vietnam border, enjoy breakfast in the restaurant. After, select from the many on­board activities including a ship’s tour, cocktail competition and cultural lecture. After lunch, the ship sails into Vietnamese waters and anchors in Tan Chau. Tender sampans to visit fish farms and Taoist Temple. Return on board in time for a traditional Vietnamese lion dance. After dinner, enjoy the evening’s entertainment.
Wake up to another leisurely breakfast as the ship cruises towards the provincial capital of Long Xuyen in the Mekong Delta. Tender ashore to visit the colorful Long Xuyen Floating Market and the An Giang Museum, with fascinating exhibits on Vietnamese, Chinese, Khmer and Cham cultures in the region. Return to the ship and enjoy lunch as we cruise towards Tan Loe Island where a selection of shore excursions awaits, including tea served in a historic century-old house featuring Chinese, French and Vietnamese architectural elements, visiting an orchard for a taste of exotic fruits from the Mekong Delta, and travelling to a local farm where plum wine is made. Return to the ship and cruise towards Can Tho, the beating heart of the Mekong Delta. Enjoy a final farewell dinner accompanied by a traditional Southern Vietnamese folk music performance.
