They have terracotta floors and there is much use of concrete, which creates a naturally cool environment. The open shelving is very useful. We had a full English breakfast which we...

We stayed one night in the "Sala Bai Suite" after having enjoyed a truly wonderful lunch. The new school (opened late 2015) is 4-5 minutes 'off' busy Siem Reap center south along the river. An exceptional human size facility for the intended vocational training program which in itself is a wonder. You see it all - classrooms, glassed kitchen workshop,...
