Global Heritage Fund 

Stay in a small village close to Banteay Chhmar, the “Citadel of Cats” and support the local community

About the Organisation

"Our mission at Global Heritage Fund is to sustainably preserve the most significant and endangered cultural heritage sites in developing regions of the world. We envision a world where communities are empowered to view their heritage as precious, appreciate it as a fount of inspiration, and protect it as a pillar of the past and an enhancement to the future. Community Based Tourism ( CBT) is part of this improvement and development process. Tourism is an excellent long-term, sustainable and low-impact way to improve the livelihoods of the community. We are helping to protect the cultural heritage and environment, as well as increase income for villagers through tourism activities – homestays, tour guides, cooks and other activities."
