Visitors' hut

While we of course welcome visitors at Green Gecko, we are conscious of impacting on the children's schedules and privacy as little as possible. It is important the children don't feel like they are being put on 'show'. For this reason, we have provided the following info and guidelines that we hope will maximize the benefits of your visit for both you and the Green Gecko kids.

Just a reminder that Cambodian dress sense is modest and conservative by western standards. We ask that you please be respectful of this and cover shoulders and to the knees when visiting Green Gecko - no bottoms, boobs or bellybuttons on show please, no short shorts or skinny strapped singlets. :)


Visiting hours: 9:30am - 10:30am, Monday to Thursday (except on Khmer National holidays which can be viewed here)

What can we bring?

Anything from our wish list would be greatly appreciated. The things we need the most are not always the most fun or glamorous like shampoo and washing powder! Much of it can be bought here in Siem Reap though. This not only saves on excess luggage; it also helps the local Cambodian economy.

Can we bring individual gifts for the children?

Because of the children's begging past, we strongly discourage any individual gift giving by visitors. However, group gifts are always welcomed and can be given to centre management, who will share them amongst the Gecko kids so they all feel equally special!

What time can we interact with the children?

The kids' days are jammed packed from 6am to 7:30pm so any interaction with visitors is kept to a minimum and can only happen briefly while they are on a break. Our visiting hours are designed to show people around and share what Green Gecko is about, what we do and why we do it. Visiting hours are not intended for playing or interacting with the children.

Can we come in a group?

Yes, of course! Group visits are also welcome within the visiting hours of 9:30am - 10:30am Monday to Thursday.

Do we need to make an appointment?

No. Just turn up during visiting hours and there will be someone available to have a chat in our visitors' hut and show you around.

IMPORTANT: Due to our strict child protection policy all visitors are required to sign into our visitor book and bring along their passport for ID. Thanks for your understanding.
