Butterfly Tours aims for you to take a relaxing bike ride through local Cambodian villages in Battambang, Siem Reap, and Kampot—away from the usual tourist hotspots. This way, you can observe Cambodia’s rural ways of life, visit local temples and learn about the unique Khmer customs and culture... all this while limiting as much as possible your environmental impact!
Butterfly Tours also conserve the local environment by engaging businesses that are eco-friendly and sustainable.
~ Develop sustainable forms of tourism that create more jobs and support local Cambodian trade and investment
~ Educate visitors on the socio-cultural and economic landscape of Cambodia
~ Deepen visitors’ knowledge on local Cambodian cultures and customs
~ Train local students and youths to be your guides, in turn offering them employment and leadership opportunities
~ Personally nurture and develop leadership and managerial skills of the Butterfly team members, who are made up of Cambodian youths from the countryside
~ Within villages, they engage local Cambodians to share their knowledge and skills with them, who in turn share them with you when you take their tours!
~ Support the integrity of local cultures by favouring businesses and local goods that conserve the cultural heritage and traditional values of Cambodia
~ Support the local economy through the purchase of local goods from small Cambodian businesses
