Rana

Srey Siam, Kampong Cham, Kampong Cham, Cambodia

Fodor’s Expert Review

Rana offers a one-of-a-kind, well-organized experiential homestay for adults or families in the Cambodian countryside. Run by an American and his Cambodian wife, Rana aims to colorfully inform visitors about the local culture, history, lifestyle, and cuisine through a two-night stay in a clean but basic rattan hut on stilts. In authentic Khmer village style, the hut has no running water (but fresh water is supplied for bathing using a bowl) and no electricity. Houseguests are fed delicious organic home-cooked meals, and escorted on guided walks, bicycle rides, and other tours of the area, where they get to meet locals and Khmer Rouge regime survivors, learning how rural Cambodians actually live.
