Teacher Taster Trip


Experience Life in Cambodia

Get a taste of the challenges facing Cambodians, and the subsequent impact on your students, on a rewarding teacher taster trip. Find out what it will be like to live and work in a rural Cambodian community and make a measurable impact through community development initiatives.

Cambodia is a country of extremes, with severe poverty flanked by 5* hotels and exclusive tourism, ancient temples and modern evolving city, peace loving people but with a terrible recent history of the Khmer Rouge. You will get the chance to visit the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat temple, wander the night markets of Siem Reap, understand the terrible events of the Khmer Rouge regime at the Killing Fields, soak up the sunset across padi-fields and meet the incredible people of Cambodia.  You will also get to visit the Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary which aims to provide a natural and comfortable environment for elephants previously used in tourism.

Once you experience it you will never look back. You will go away with a sound idea of what your students, can learn, be a part of and how they can make an impact.
