Join us this November and travel to Cambodia to see and photograph the majestic Angkor Wat, a temple built in the 12th century on orders of Khmer King Suryavarman II. Largely neglected after the 16th century, it was taken over by the jungle until the French government committed to its restoration in the early 20th century. Considered the largest religious monument, it forms part of the Angkor Archaeological Park that stretches over more than 1,000 square kilometers. A UNESCO world heritage site it offers the perfect backdrop for a photographic expedition, as you marvel at the one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece with towering structures and elaborately carved walls. Venture to other parts of the park and visit the last capital of the Khmer empire, Angkor Thom.

Come with us to Kompong Khleang in lake Tonlé Sap where you will find the largest floating village in Siem Reap. Get to know the villagers living in floating houses and photograph their daily lives traversing up and down the waters. You might even see children rowing their own boats to school!
