A Unique Story

CRDTours is one of the social enterprise programs enacted by the Cambodian Rural Development Team (CRDT).

Belonging to the first educated generation after the Khmer Rouge period, the 5 founders of the CRDT were disadvantaged rural children. Access to education was an uphill struggle. Hard work and extraordinary circumstances culminated in the founders meeting at university, and being in the minority coming from underprivileged backgrounds, they banded together as a team.

They opened Kratie Town’s first tour booking office with an official ceremony at CRDTours’ riverside location on Monday, 21st November 2011. Backed by the Mekong Discovery Trail, CRDTours will continue to work to support conservation and local communities through sustainable tourism, building on CRDT’s previous work in this area.

CRDTours is a sequel of sorts, a new name and the next chapter in CRDT’s community development tours of the past five years – bigger, better and broader in scope.

CRDTours will show that there is more to this stunning part of the Mekong than just the critically endangered Irrawaddy Dolphins by employing local knowledge and community relationships to take people beyond the pages of their guidebook for a truly rural Cambodian experience. Those that book with CRDTours know that they are making a positive contribution to the places they visit and the people they meet.

Community Connection

Income from all tours continues to directly support the work of CRDT by striving to improve food security, incomes, and living standards of poor rural communities in Cambodia.

Environmental Engagement

The funds generated from the tours also directly support environmental conservation.
