Course Description

Southeast Asia: Cambodia and Myanmar (Burma)

Southeast Asia is one of the most exotic and most popular regions of the world to visit for a North American traveller. It is a region of spectacular natural landscapes and abundant and varied wildlife, as well as a fascinating blend of cultures. The region is steeped in rich history going back to early medieval times and is a reminder of the not-so-distant colonial past, with colonial French architecture in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and British architecture in Yangon, Myanmar.

Cambodia and Myanmar are arguably the most exotic countries in that part of the world. We will be travelling through an astonishing variety of natural and cultural landscapes including lush tropical rainforest areas in the Mekong lowland, mountainous regions of Myanmar, large freshwater lakes such as the Tonle Sap in Cambodia, and the Inle Lake in Myanmar. From a cultural and historical perspective, the Angkor area in Cambodia, and the Buddhist temple region in Bagan in Myanmar, are among the most spectacular locales in the world.

This fascinating journey will take place in midwinter, the most comfortable time to visit this part of the world in terms of the weather. In other words, it is the best time of year to travel there. Throughout the journey, we will be staying in comfortable hotels or lodges. In short, be prepared for the trip of a lifetime!
