Teams can spend a couple of days in Phnom Penh, a city where the ancient and modern worlds seem to co-exist effortlessly. The serenity of Buddhist monks strolling through the streets provides a real contrast to the hectic bustle and hum of mopeds. Cambodians love to eat, and throughout Cambodia, the amazing food markets and street food are not to be missed. Cambodian food is delicious and much influenced by nearby Thailand and Vietnam.
Trekking in Cambodia can be varied, depending on time and ability, but it always delivers a sense of enormous achievement and adventure. A four-day trek could take you past rice fields, into the jungle, and alongside waterfalls. The team could even spend the night in the jungle listening to the sounds around them as they rest in their hammocks! Our treks are led by our amazing local guides who will teach jungle and local survival techniques along the way. A shorter option might be to visit the origins of the Khmer Empire in the Kulen Mountains. Trekking through stunning rice fields and remote villages, you can see ancient carvings etched into the sandstone riverbeds.
In the rural communities outside Siem Reap and Battambang, the team can link up with our long-term charity partner, Better Lives. Students will get the chance to immerse themselves into community life and make a real and lasting impact on the people they meet. All projects are chosen for their sustainability in consultation with the community. In the past, our teams have chosen to create vegetable gardens, build chicken pens and pig sheds and have even helped to build a home for a family.
Siem Reap, with its many fascinating temples, offers a spectacular stepping stone into ancient Khmer civilisation. Not to be missed is Angkor Wat, the world’s largest religious monument, literally translating to ‘temple city’. A sunrise or sunset visit is truly unforgettable. More recent history can be experienced in an incredibly poignant trip to the Tuol Sleng Museum & Choeung Ek Choeung where students can learn about the impact of the Khmer Rouge regime.
A trip to Cambodia takes in coastal regions, jungle, lush countryside, and beautiful hills. With such varied terrain, treks can be adapted to abilities ranging from 2-4 in terms of difficulty.
Cambodian culture is both ancient and fascinating and has developed over nearly two millennia. The Khmerit culture is a unique mix of Buddhism, Hinduism, and a deep belief in the spirituality of nature, plants, and animals.
Summer is a great time to travel. June to August are known as the green season, the monsoons are yet to come, and fresh vegetables and food plentiful.
