School trips to Cambodia

Cambodia is a country just brimming with colourful culture and breathtaking sites all steeped within a rich and often dark history.

History & Classics

HISTORY & CLASSICS

Learn more about the devastating Khmer Rouge regime, who turned the country into a graveyard for nearly two million people, including their own members and even some senior leaders. The almost mythological temple of Angkor Wat is unrivalled in its breath-taking beauty and architectural magnificence. Breathe in the history as your students explore what was the centre of the Khmer Kingdom for several centuries.

SERVICE PROJECTS

Get involved and give back to local communities through Service Projects, including working with local teaching in organising daily teaching activities or educational games. More hands on projects can also be organised including building sheds to grow vegetables or painting classrooms.

CULTURE

Travelbound believe that truly educational travel experiences involve hands on interaction with the real culture of a country – culture meaning the daily activities, customs and way of life of a people, not just the historic attractions and scenic sites. See what lies beneath the surface through these unique and immersive experiences:

  • Participate in a traditional classic dance or folk dance workshop
  • Learn to cook delicious Cambodian dishes including Bai Sach Chrouk (BBQ pork and rice) or Kuy Teav (Noodle soup)
  • Talk a lesson in the ancient art of making leather shadow puppets

THE HIGHLIGHTS OF CAMBODIA

SIEM REAP

Angkor Thom

Built at the Centre of King Jayavarman’s capital, Angkor Thom was the last state temple to be built at Angkor, and the only Angkorian state temple to be built primarily as a Mahayana Buddhist shrine dedicated to the Buddha.  Following Jayavarman’s death, it was modified and augmented by later Hindu and Theravada Buddhist kings in accordance to their religious preferences

Angkor Wat

The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodia flag and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat’s five towers symbolize Meru’s five peaks-the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond.

Floating village of Chong Khneas

located 10 kilometres south of Siem Reap. You will visit the village and take an excursion in a traditional wooden boat on the Tonle Sap Lake, the “Great Lake” of Cambodia, one of the wonders of Asia.
