Giving something back

At European Guesthouse we have made a commitment to look after Cambodia and its people. We are dedicated to give our guests a relaxed, friendly and clean accommodation option that helps benefit and develop the local community.

We are proud members of ChildSafe International. An international network that protect children from abuse and prevent them from being placed in abusive situations.

“In hotels and guesthouses, there is an emphasis on recognizing the danger of sexual abuse of children. The staff is trained not to let in customers with minors other than their own and to inform the police or local ChildSafe team.” – ChildSafe International

We are members of Environmentally friendly hotels / green hotels. A website that lets you search for lodging properties which take one or more environmental actions.

Whether you have lunch at a local market or sponsor a fruit tree there are many ways to give something back to the local communities when you are travelling.
