Journey to Southeast Asia

On this amazing trek through Southeast Asia you will experience complex cultures with elaborate monasteries, ancient temples, and colourful festivals and markets.

Our first destination is in the northern part of Southeast Asia: Cambodia, a country with magnificent temples situated deep within forested areas, lakes teeming with hundreds of species of fish, and huge rice paddies spread across the land. We explore the regions of Phnom Penh bustling with crowds, street vendors and tuk tuks (3 wheeled vehicles) that whiz people around the city. Lastly, we'll spend a great deal of time at the museums and historical sites that reflect the city's past. Moving north to Siem Reap we visit some of the largest temples in the world built inside beautiful sanctuaries - architectural masterpieces ornately and exquisitely carved. We will ride elephants up the hills to the temples and explore works of art carved into the stone edifices. We'll also visit the modern sections of the city where day and night markets offer an amazing cultural experience.

Our journey then takes us to Thailand, a country of the lush, tropical rainforests, beautiful green rice paddies, stunning cliffs, mountains, and idyllic coastline beaches. We will be stationed in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Phuket to experience the bustling cities, diverse flora and fauna in forests, hike up mountains and into waterfalls, and relax at some spectacular beaches. You'll also have the opportunity to volunteer at an elephant sanctuary to view these spectacular creatures! And of course, we'll experience local and traditional Thai cuisine, including an authentic Thai cooking class!
