Dreaming of a career in an exotic location? Passionate about responsible travel? Marketing, communications, and design expert? Come join our small team in Cambodia and be part of growing an exciting educational travel company.
About Ayana Journeys
We are a small, responsible travel company based in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We are dedicated to sharing immersive, educational experiences with culturally curious travellers.
All our tours have an element of learning, with a philosophy that travel is as much about learning from new cultures and places, as it is about a life-long learning experience for personal development.
We have strong responsible tourism values, and believe that travel should always benefit the local community; as a result some of our tours directly finance grass-root development projects in rural Cambodia, providing education and youth empowerment projects for disadvantaged young people.
