We stayed at Ratanakiri homestay for 3 nights. After the first night we had had such a great time with Vuthy and his family that we decided to do the 2 day trek with him. The whole stay in banlung was incredible! Vuthy is so engaging and dynamic that will make you feel more than welcomed. The trek was amazing! He is such a good and experienced guide! Plus he gives you the chance to make contact with the local kids through his project of english classes. For us it was the best experience in the whole south-east asia. You will not regret to stay here!
We were staying in Banlung when we met Vuthy during a trek (3 days through jungle, and he was our guide) :he and his team was really nice, attentive, they take care of us (sleeping, food, walk...) it was definitely a great experience ! Then we stayed for 2 days at his homestay in the village, with his family and the community people. We helped for build his school and had the chance to give the first classroom with the kids !
So, a lot of great time shared together, a real memories... Thanks all of you and for all !
We stayed for a week with Vuthy's family and had such a great time. We had the chance to leave in authentic Cambodian style. Vuthy is amazing and full of energy to help to develop his community. We had the chance to help him to build a classroom to teach English to the kids. We then went for 3 days trek. It has been such a great and wonderful adventure ! Vuthy Was our guide and what a guide !!! The best !!!
I definitely would recommend people who look for authentic ecotourism to stay here !!!
What an amazing time I had trekking with Vuthy through the jungles of Northern Cambodia. Everything was taken care of. Food, sleeping arrangements, and many, many wonderful stories about the land and people. I woke up to the sound of gibbons calling to each other high up in the jungle canopy. If you are lucky you will see them on your trek! Vuthy and his beautiful family will make you feel right at home at their homestay. For a truly memorable, relaxing, and educational experience, I highly recommend spending a few nights at the Homestay for a chance to experience Banlung, and then spending a few days on a jungle trek. Perfect for all travelers seeking an off the beaten path experience. You will be in very very good hands!
Our experience in Ratanakiri Homestay
was amazing! We lived with and like locals, had simple but delicious food and Vuthy was a really great host, showing us all around and showing us how to cook woth bamboo! The experience was amazing! The family and all the people in the comune were super friendly! If I ever go back to Cambodja I will definitely visit Vuthy's homestay again!
Vuthy is an amazing person, interesting and friendly. He offered us to discover what is really Banlung and Ratanakiri Province. We've spend few incredible days with him , visiting some beautiful place, sharing some nice dinner with him and his sweet family. He has so many knowledge, can teach cooking and also giving some language lessons, taking you on trekking or canoeing ect.. It was really hard for us to leave .
i will definitely recommend this place to everyone who like meeting lokals and learn there way of living. The host Vuthy is a realy good man, great companion if you chose is place you wont regret it.
