Cambodian creativity in so many facets: we helped guests of the "first wandering hotel in the world" in discovering what is making the Khmer creative clock tick.
700 000 heures is a truly unique offer in modern travel: guests are invited to immerse themselves in the spirit and soulf of the land they're visiting, living in traditional houses that have been prepared for them, and not only admiring from afar the artfulness of its people but actually meeting with the artists, joining workshops and rehearsals.
For the 2018-2019 "Angkor" edition of this atypical wandering, Thierry Tessier, 700,000 Hours founder-wizard,has asked us to organize such a discovery. Art in its many forms, from culinary wonders to fashion design, from visual to performing arts, from local architecture to craftsmanship. The essence of nowadays Cambodia, complementing and enhancing the treasures of the Ancient Khmer civilization.
