About The Event
Come join us in Siem Reap, Cambodia, for a fun-filled and community-centered worldschooling gathering March 31 - April 6, 2024
The Worldschool Pop-Up Hub provides super casual, budget-friendly opportunities to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, learn about the local area, instill new friendships, share your insights, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community. Our activities highlight local nature, history, food, and culture... but you'll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group's interests.
Siem Reap, a small town in northwestern Cambodia, is the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer kingdom from the 9th–15th centuries. Visitors come here to see the temples, of course, but there is plenty to do in and around the city when you're templed out. Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you'd like. It's up to you!
Our itinerary will include activities such as the following:
*Lotus and Silk Farms
*Learning about the Landmine-Sniffing APOPO Rats
*Traditional Dance & Music Performances
Add-on options include SUP, a monk blessing, cooking class, cycling at temples, a boat trip to Tonle Sap Lake, or the Phare Circus.

MEET YOUR HOST:
Your hosts are Sok, Christy, Kian - 11 years, Maly - 9 years, & Jay - 7 years. Hi, I'm Christy, and we live in Siem Reap. I'm a college counselor and my Cambodian husband grew up in this area and is a local tour guide. I have also worked as tour leader in Southeast Asia for many years. We love hosting and showing off our amazing slice of the world. In fact, we actually came to learn about worldschooling from several families who've stayed at our B&B.
We know everything to do here and can provide all sorts of advice for your stay. We're always organizing events and trips with guests and friends and have a lot of experience in creating memorable, fun, and affordable activities! Our family is also really excited to get out and do way more travelling now that the world has opened up again.
LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS:
Siem Reap is a small town near Angkor Wat. Everything is quite accessible from town and the town is generally safe for families (as always please read reviews and exercise common sense).
Your hosts live in Wat Svay, Siem Reap, which is along the river 2 km south of the town center. They run a smalll B&B with 6 private bungalows (including kitchen) and also recommend another family-run hotel 250 meters away with a pool the group can use! For those interested in staying near the host family, you'll find links to these accommodation options in the Facebook group mentioned below.
Getting into town is very easy: walking along the river, using ride apps or tuktuk drivers for as little as $1/trip, or by hired bicycle. They also have some very friendly dogs around, too.
Join the private Facebook group to ask questions, stay up to date on activities in the area, meet the host, and interact with other potential attendees:
