What is your idea of a quintessential South East Asian travel? Most probably, there’d be some monsoon rains, rice fields, elephants and sacred Buddhist temples and statues. That is the mass-media image that we have of this destination. But it is much deeper than that. Through new volunteering programs that combine great touristic experiences with volunteer opportunities, or “volun-tourism”, you can get a chance to understand these cultures at a deeper level while making a difference in their communities.
Heading on Volun-Tourism in SE Asia
Through “volun-tourism”, you can discover some of the most iconic South East Asian attractions while doing something that will make a huge difference in the communities that you visit. With the Bamboo travel in Cambodia services, you now have your true ethical volun-tourism partner to make your travels successful and worthwhile.
Making a Difference in a Country Emerging from a Humbling Past
Our image of Cambodia is still tainted with the bloody Khmer Rouge atrocities but there is more to this country than the troubles of the past. The immensity of the beauty and the warmth in Cambodia is simply unfathomable. You can discover this hidden beauty with the Bamboo travel in Cambodia services.
Cambodia is the country of some of the most stunning temples in South East Asia, endless white beaches and the most delicious South East Asian cuisines. Work with a great local partner to help you explore all this beauty while you discover how to share in it momentarily through your charity work.
With Bamboo travel in Cambodia services, this is exactly what you will get. Here is a list of some must-dos if you are planning to “volun-tour” in Cambodia:
Visit the Angkor Wat
No visit to Cambodia is ever complete without a sightseeing tour to the very magnificent Angkor Wat temple. This temple complex was built in the 12th century. Over the years, it has acquired an iconic stature as a centre of Cambodian culture. Some of its most enchanting glimpses can be had during the sunrises and sunsets. The architecture of the Angkor Wat is truly stunning and is guaranteed to take your breath away.
Get on a Bamboo Train
Ever rode on a Bamboo train? Well this is another Cambodian experience that you wouldn’t want to miss. This is one of the most unique train ride experiences in the world and will take you from the O Dambong all the way to the O Sra Lav. The clacking and clicking of the journey will take you past a jungle rail but the bamboo-made train is the most unique aspect of this ride. If another train is approaching from the other direction, your bamboo train will simply be disassembled to make way for the other train before you continue with the journey. It is quite a mindboggling experience!
The Tuol Sleng Museum
Visiting this museum will certainly be a sobering experience during your volun-tourism in Cambodia. If Khmer Rouge comes to your mind whenever you think of Cambodia, then this is the place to learn about its excesses.
Take a Cruise on the Mekong River
Much of the geography of this country is dominated by the mighty Mekong. The river has its sets of attractions and a welcome relief if you are tired of the cramped up public transport services in Cambodia.
