One of a kind village stay!
We will be heading off to the village of Koh Ker. After you wake up to the sounds of the village, witnessing village life in a way you never could from the “highrise” views of a tree house accomodation, you can see what life was like, perhaps two thousand years ago. This is truly a dream come true for photographers, want to be anthropologists, and lovers of native cultures. After a hearty breakfast is served, we will explore the village and meet some of the people. We’ll supply an abundance of school supplies and other necessities before bidding fair well to our new friends (all donations are included in the cost of the tour and handled by the travel club team). Before departing this peaceful place we’ll have a special guided tour of temple complexes older than Angkor Wat where very few tourists go! We’ll end up back in Siem Reap at our charming hotel. You will have an evening to tour the town on your own and taste the local flavors for dinner. A group dinner option will be available!
-Explore the gateway to Myanmar. In the formal capital city we’ll visit the Shwedagon Pagoda, believed to have been built more than 2500 years ago! This magnificent building is covered with hundreds of gold plates and the top of the Stupa is encrusted with 4531 diamonds)

* Walk among the splendid colonial buildings that still dot the city including City Hall and the High Court Building
* Get lost in Bogyoke Aung San Market: Commonly known by its old British name of Scott Market. Undoubtedly offering the largest selection of handicrafts in Myanmar, the market is a great place to discover a bargain and have fun haggling with the local traders.
Ngwe Saung Beach
With a long, white & silver sand beach (known as silver beach), excellent bungalows and resorts, plus a number of interesting excursions to nearby islands, Ngwe Saung Beach is ideal for a few days of relaxation after time spent exploring the country’s cultural attractions. Each evening we’ll dine in one of the quant local restaurants that abound in the heart of the village.
