Join us on a trip into ancient Cambodia. SC supporters and Rotarians from around the world are invited to visit Sustainable Cambodia on a journey into the heart of Cambodia. This 10-day excursion is a truly unique experience. Located in Southeast Asia, this beautiful country is rich in history and culture and has been awarded as one of the top travel destinations for several years. We will travel to the must-visit places in Cambodia, including the heart of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, and we will walk amongst the ancient temples of Siem Reap. But tourism is not the primary purpose of this trip. We will go far off the “tourist routes” to visit village families and experience the impact of Rotary projects in the remote villages of Pursat Province.
For those who haven’t gone before, you will have the adventure of a lifetime while helping rural families and children in ways you may have never dreamed possible. The adventure will include a visit to Phnom Penh, the capital city situated at the confluence of four great rivers. Phnom Penh offers several cultural and historical attractions, including the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, National Museum, Wat Phnom, and Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, some of which will be included in the itinerary for the trip, and others available as optional visits. Together, we will explore these cultural sites and museums to gain an understanding of the challenges Cambodia has faced as it rebuilds from the tragedy of the Khmer Rouge genocide.
As we travel through the country, we will visit Pursat in central Cambodia, the home of Sustainable Cambodia, where you will meet the students, teachers, and staff. Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Pursat will be your guides as you meet the village families and the school children in the SC school projects. You will have the opportunity to visit and/or participate in various Rotary projects. We will travel to the schools and Rotary project sites of Sustainable Cambodia, and to choose from various Rotary-supported projects, such as working with school children, visiting water filter construction sites, and water well installations. You will have the opportunity to meet first-hand the wonderful families and children in these rural villages, and for those who wish to do so, we can engage in hands-on projects with the families.
The trip will include an excursion to Angkor Wat. Angkor is a temple complex built from the 11th to the 12th century and is one of the seven wonders of the world. In Angkor Wat, you will be led by experienced tour guides who will share the rich history of these temple ruins and will have an unparalleled opportunity to explore Cambodia's incredible heritage.
