Here are some of our most requested student tour to explore Cambodia inclusions:
Phnom Penh city tour
This tour combines the attractions of the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum. A visit is also made to Tuol Tom Pong market, known by many as the Russian market, before stopping for lunch at one of the many local restaurants along the Tonle Sap waterfront.
In the afternoon, visit Tuol Sleng, the former detention centre of the Khmer Rouge, and now a museum standing testament to their horrific crimes. There after drive south of the city to Choeung Ek, known to many as the Killing Fields. It is here that mass graves were found after the Khmer Rouge were driven from power in 1979.
Colonial Architecture in Phnom Penh
Oudong – the former capital of Cambodia
Visit the former royal capital city Oudong (1 hour from Phnom Penh), en route stopping to visit a Cham Muslim Village and the Phnom Baset – a pre-Angkorian temple. Continue to visit the pagodas at Wat Kampong Tralach Pleu. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the site. On the way back visit a silver craft village.
The masterpiece of Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s most beloved and best preserved temple. The 500-acre site is one of the largest religious monuments in the world and represents the architectural pinnacle of the Khmer Empire. Originally dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, it has remained a place of worship since its founding in the 12th century. Thought to be a miniature replica of the universe, its composition of towers, moats and concentric walls reveals an architectural sophistication, and the bas-reliefs with their plump figures and triumphal battle scenes reflect a robust, healthy and wealthy period of history.
