We did not say overnight and Bong Thom. Instead, we had the inestimable pleasure to eat and be entertained here. The food was unsurpassed during our several days in Siem Reap. The musical entertainment was a treat. Best of all, however, was the knowledge that our patronage would help its owner continue to provide free afternoon education for about 60 of the village's children. In the corrupt country that is Cambodia, education is neither compulsory nor tax-funded. If families cannot afford to educate their children -- and very many cannot -- then the children receive no education. It is heartbreaking. It was our very great pleasure to have dined at Bong Thom, and an even greater pleasure to have made a contribution to the continuing education of this village's children.

My wife and I are the big fans of foods and we have explored almost every restaurants town but The Bong Thom Home Stay foods are very delicous. Chai is the chef which is very creative and always combined the food between Cambodian traditional to modern decoration. Chai and his staff are very welcome and helpful, they would do anything to satisfies you while you are there for lunch or either staying at Bong Thom Home Stay. We have spent our week-end and we found this place is perfect for people who escape from the crowded cities. Relax and peaceful and you will receive many fresh air in the middle of remote area. the location is middle of the temple area and you are able to visit any temple during you are there at the Bong Thom Home Stay. Definitely recommended this place and will also return back soon. Thank you!!! Stayed October 2014, traveled as a couple

Situated 20min by car from Siem Reap you can find this incredible homestay where you can hide away from the cities madness and just chill out or explore the Angkor temples at your own pace. The homestay has several bedrooms wich offers basically all you may need to make your stay comfortable. 24hrs electricity is provided but no WiFi anyhow, if you stay in a place like this you really are not looking to be conected are you? Homestay also offers food (very nice, tasty & organic as they grow it onsite) and transportation to temples or city. As said previously ... would stay here if you are looking for peace & quiet. 100% recomended Stayed August 2014, traveled with friends
