Is this supposed to be an ad? Or just a random article from somewhere?

I do not find that expensive at all as I guess they will not stay in 3-Dollar dorms and drink 50-Cent beers.

Thank you PR. No wonder I was confused, it's an ad disguised as an article on another newspaper. Wonder what the point of posting it here in the travel section was though?

Can you also take a guess at the '' many meals, '' they will be supplying ?
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

They don't give a lot of information, I could bet it's all mid-range hotels and very average food. The "wellness" industry is well-known for being a con, they are paying for homeopathic water and balanced chakras and other bollocks.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Looking at their sample itinerary, it is all about supporting NGO's; I am guessing they will eat at places like Marum in SR and Friends in PP.

Really? I think I would find it hard to spend $450 a day in Cambodia, no matter how good the hotels are.

Also, for $5k, I would expect their website to work

They have missed to .com off the email address :facepalm:
