What I notice about most of these "retreats" is that they are built in scrub, that is, land that has already been cleared of forest.

Some that I see on booking dot com are really just in villages with a few trees around.

If it's in a plantation, that means all the trees are planted in rows, and they are all the same type of tree.
It's an old style Cambodian plantation, add to that cashew plantations aren't that neat.

But yes, most trees there are cashews.

No thanks, but I would love to tell you where to go. Be careful Goldilocks, the woods are full of Big Bad Wolves.

It would be nice to find wild nature where the wild plants are still growing.

A village or a plantation will not have that.
