The Echuca College team will explore the magnificence of Angkor Wat at sunrise, the world’s largest religious building which built in 12 century (1113 – 1150). Angkor Wat was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1992. They will then head to visit Bayon temple, which was built under the reign of the King Jayavarman VII in 1196AD. Here students will see details about the ancient Cambodia culture, civilization, life style and religion. The team will visit the jungle-clad Ta Prohm, made famous by the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Tomb Raider’. To continue a very busy day they will then venture to Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia for a cruise to visit the traditional floating villages and witness the residents going about their daily life.
The team has been busy building classrooms and a library for a remote pagoda school, whilst also working with children and teaching them English. The whole College could not be more proud of our team in Cambodia.
