The Sok Sabay's Volunteer Guide

We are pleased to present our volunteer guide. The latter has been created to give you some good addresses for your arrival: what to do in Phnom Penh, where to stay, where to eat… This guide is a recently created project which is constantly looking for new ideas and addresses, which you can advise us with great pleasure after or during your stay !

This initiative by our last volunteers allows the next volunteers to feel at ease and to get to know the neighbourhood quite quickly.

Where to Live ?

ROOM #1 - "HOPE"


When you come to the association, we do not take care of accommodation but we offer several rooms for rent located a few minutes from the association and the Russian market of Phnom Penh at The Long Airbnb.

Java Creative Coffee

Java Café & Gallery is a neighborhood hub, and an “icon” of café culture in the capital of Cambodia, being one of the first to open in 2000. A new Java has opened near our association and you will enjoy very good organic meals.

Where to Eat ?

In Phnom Penh, you have the embarrassment of the choice to eat: traditional Khmer, Thai, vegan, barbecues… There is something for every taste and of course, for every budget! We highlight the three addresses close to the association and that we particularly like.

What to Do ?

Apart from the famous temples of Angkor, there are other activities to be carried out in Phnom Penh, notably on the history of the country and the Khmer Rouge period. These three proposals are a must for the city and will teach you more about Cambodia and its past.

Central Market

Central Market is located in the heart of the Phnom Penh. The Khmer name of the market is Phsar Thmei which translates to “new market”.
