Day 3 : Angkor Touring

Visiting: Siem Reap

Today you will explore an area in the remote Cambodian countryside seen by few travelers. Experience a special day of interaction with local children who participate in projects sponsored by the Cambodian-Dutch Organization, a non-profit that works on community development projects.

You will visit a primary school built by the foundation, as well as a health centre. The instructor, Mr. Lous, will introduce you to the class, and you will have an opportunity to do a “show and tell” about your life back home. You can talk about your life, your work, your family and your hobbies.Then it is time for a lunch break. Enjoy a Cambodian lunch with staff of the CDO.

From here continue on to Beng Mealea, another seldom-visited ruin and a spectacular jungle temple. Almost no restoration of the area has been undertaken so the jungle is becoming one with the carved sandstone. Roots of kapok trees twist and wind their way around the carvings and gray galleries. Intricately carved depictions have been well preserved, including scenes from the sacred Hindu Vedas, such the bird-god Garuda giving birth to Vishnu. Return to Siem Reap around 04:30PM.

Day 4 : Tonle Sap Touring / Departure

Visiting: Siem Reap

After breakfast you will drive to Kampong Kleang village. Imagine wooden houses on 10 meter tall stilts, surrounded by water in the wet season and on the flood plains of the lake in the dry season. You will drive on the dirt road to the village along the way you will see many wooden houses and traditional fishing equipment as well as small children wave their hands and say hello to you. Upon arrival at the stilt house the family welcomes you with some tea and coffee before you start walking around the village. This community of Kampong Kleang knows many inventive ways to catch fish. We learn about the village life while visiting a local school, see the smoking of catfish, and speaking to a fisherman while he is making reparations on his net. We take a boat trip to see the live on the Tonle Sap Lake.
