IMG_0521-0.JPG

Another huge day in Siem Reap with a visit to ten Angkor Temples. Angkor Wat was first a Hindu, then subsequently a Buddhist, temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world. The Projects Abroad team endured very hot and humid conditions and many experienced their first ride in a tuk tuk .Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations.
Some students experienced elephant rides and we then headed to the markets for the evening . Our days have been jammed packed and although fatigue and dealing with extreme heat and humidity this group continues to thrive.The bonding with this amazing group continues and each day proves to be an adventures we never anticipated and will long cherish .
