Cambodian Government awards Mekong Bird
The ITWNE team is thrilled that Mekong Bird Resort, our partner in Cambodia, has been awarded by the Tourism Authority of Cambodia for its contribution to Mekong river ecosystem conservation, community contributions and beautiful accommodations! Thong Aun, the proprietor of the resort, is devoted to helping all guests enjoy the natural wonders of Stung Treng from the comfort and style of the rustic luxury bungalows.
Aun’s overnight camping experiences are unique as you paddle out to one of the hundreds of island that dot this part of the Mekong and enjoy a delicious meal from his beautiful camp setup. He is also very supportive of all of the student groups, and many guests, who visit his establishment to work with the local school on service projects or simple english lessons. Aun says that the adventures with the ITWNE student groups are what has helped him develop and refine his resort, and his vision for becoming a community partner. The ITWNE service projects that take place across the road from Mekong Bird Resort have helped Aun develop a strong community presence and recognition nationally.
