One Amazing Summer
FEATURED PROGRAM: ASIA
Our launch point for this Asia adventure is Hong Kong, where we’ll experience incredible markets, a Symphony of Lights nighttime harbourfront show, and a visit to the Po Lin Monastery, home to the Big Buddha. We’ll hike through the nature trails of The Peak and have the option to go to Disneyland Hong Kong.
A short flight will bring us to Cambodia. We’ll be based in Siem Reap, where we’ll view the vast temple complex of Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples – from Ta Prohm, enveloped in huge tree roots, to Bayon, decorated with huge carved smiling faces.
Next, we travel to Laos, and the town of Luang Prabang. We’ll tour Buddhist temples, seeing shrines and orange-clad monks. We’ll zipline through lush jungles and hike to local waterfalls. We also have the option to kayak one of the picturesque rivers. We’ll take a boat cruise along the Mekong River to our final country, Thailand. We begin in the north in Chiang Rai Province, where we’ll trek into the hills to see tribal villages, and take an optional elephant ride.
Moving south, we arrive on the white sand beaches of Ko Lanta, an island along the west sunset coast. We’ll take class on the sand and snorkelling in the clear blue waters, and have the option of scuba diving at some of the best sites in the world.
Finally, we visit Ayutthaya, where we’ll take our final exam and enjoy a farewell banquet. Throughout this program we will also have several opportunities to participate in meaningful community work, volunteering in agricultural or educational projects.
