Thailand & Cambodia Experience


November 17th- December 1st 2012

Koh Lanta  statues of Angkor visit orphanage cambodia

This past January we embarked on our most meaningful adventure yet. This December we’ll be heading back to Southeast Asia! The wonders of Thailand and Cambodia will not disappoint. We’ll hit all the must sees and also go where most tourists have never gone before! The special part of this experience is the social & eco tourism we built in. This eco-tour utilizes minimal resources and will allow our club and everyone attending to give back. We will be visiting a few villages, orphanages, & schools who can really use our help. It adds to our overall experience and it won’t take much effort on our part. See below for details and e-mail us for the day by day itinerary: [email protected]

Village stay and memorable social project

Next, We will be heading off to Koh Ker to work along local professionals hired by our group to work with us to build a bridge–. (Your trip fees include the cost for the supplies to build the bridge). This will save the village a huge amount of lost energy and resources now consumed from the long travel to the nearest crossing, shortening a now 4km walk that is often unpassable at all. This bridge will allow the children to get to school, and continue their education which is the only option for them to improve their life.

After you wake up to the sounds of the village, witnessing village life in a way you never could from the highrise windows of an insulated hotel, 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 get back to our project, completing what we set out to do, and at the end of the day, bidding fair well to our new friends. We will end up back in Siem Reap at a charming hotel. Here everyone will have the luxury of a private room with mini-bar in this traditional Khmer hotel. You will have another evening to tour the town on your own. (This is NOT going to be a labor intensive day and for those who do not wish to help can hang out in the village and learn more about the locals way of life during our short time here)
