    Bakong is a nice piece of countryside to travel through. Bakong Temple is one of the oldest of the Angkor ruins - and the nearby monastery is quite alrge and colourful. Worth a visit. During the Pol Pot years, I'm told, more than 10,000 locals huddled here - watching gunfire from their hilltop. This is the district where Savong's School is located (a few 100 metres from the Tea garden) so if you are thinking of volunteering, (or seeing the temples) well the sights make up a good circuit. The Tea Garden makes a good place to stop.

    One thing about Bakong. It is so near to Siem Reap, which is comparatively wealthy, but this hinterland is among the poorest areas in all of Cambodia, according to the national maps of poverty in Cambodia. So if you see a stall selling silk scarves or mementos, you might consider buying directly here rather than from the amrkets in town.

    Hi there all,

    Just to let everyone know that the Bakong Tea Garden is now officially closed as the NGO that it raised money for (MaD for Good) has moved into the Siem Reap.

    The founders of MaD have set another restaurant called the MaD Eatery, which is located at Angkor King Plaza along Route 6 towards the airport (about 5 mins by tuk tuk from the centre of Siem Reap). It's Cambodia's first donation only restaurant: there are no prices for the food, customers simply make a donation based on what they think the food was worth. 100% of donations support their charity MaD for Good.

    You can read more, get contact details and download the menu here:

    The Bakong Tea Garden has now closed down due to a whole lot of issues surrounding APSARA the planning authority.

    We have moved back to Siem Reap and opened Cambodia's FIRST donation only restaurant called Me - MaD Eatery! check out more details here http://www.madcambodia.org/activities/mad-eatery.html
