SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT & REDUCING PLASTIC

Besides making money, we at Bloomgarden want to assist in taking care of our planet – leaving it a better place than how we found it.

We consider the need for sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation an urgent challenge. That’s why we are passionate about our first e-bikes. With our e-bikes we combine the needs for efficient transportation with an environmentally friendly and sustainable development.

Our new e-bikes help meet the need for climate-friendly transport and reduce traffic challenges in the Angkor heritage areas. We believe the e-bikes offer an important alternative to traditional modes of transportation in a world that is trying to come up with viable solutions to climate change, resource scarcity, population growth and rising urbanization.

Our next step/challenge is to realize a more sustainable environment without plastic @Bloomgarden. In July we start, in cooperation with ‘Plastic Free Cambodia’ and ‘’Refill…..don’t Landfill’, a project with Refill-bottles for our guests.

Buy a bottle and with that ‘Bloom bottle’ your ‘refill’ drinking water is for free! In and around Siem Reap and the Angkor heritage are many FREE refill stations.

In Western Cambodia lays Battambang, a lot of culture and unique architecture can be found. Battambang can be called dreamy and poetic in comparison to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The Bamboo train in Battambang is a unique ride where you can enjoy the beauty of the scenery of Cambodia. The Phare Ponleu Selpak circus is a must visit as well, it’s a multi-arts centre for disadvantaged children, they give great shows! The sightseeing is also amazing, bad caves and many more.

  • Kayaking on the river
    $12 per person, $3 guide
    Across Battambang lies the Sangkae river. This river end in the Tonle Sap river. When you go kayaking, you start a few kilometers out of the city and you follow the flow of the river. It will take you 2,5 / 3 hours to peddle to the end in the center of the city. There you’ll have a pick up to your guesthouse.
  • Visiting the Bamboo Train
    $5 per person
    The bamboo train is a popular activity for tourists in Battambang and this is noticeable. The one way rail is only used for the bamboo trains with tourists. While watching, your machinist build your train up from two axles, an outboard and a bamboo mat. When a oncoming train is coming, one of the two needs to get off the rail, dismantle his train and then rebuild it.
