Term Two Itinerary
Beijing • Siem Reap • Luang Prabang • Chiang Rai • Ko Lanta • Ayutthaya
Explore the bustling cities of Beijing, be awed by sacred temples in Cambodia and Thailand, trek through spectacular mountain scenery, and take a riverboat cruise from Laos to Thailand. During Term Two of Global High School, you’ll experience fascinating cultures, ancient ceremonies, astounding architecture, and modern city life.
The journey begins in China’s capital city of Beijing, both a modern and ancient place to explore. From the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square to the Great Wall of China, everything tells an incredible story. Beijing is an ever-evolving megacity of over 21 million that is home to seven separate UNESCO World Heritage sites; 91 universities; a variety of palaces, temples, parks, gardens, and tombs; a thriving cultural and arts scene; and much, much more. It is impossible to be bored in this buzzing metropolis – every turn brings new adventures, sights, and sounds.
Step out of the city and into the lush jungles of Cambodia, Another short flight brings us to the incredible country of Cambodia. The centrally-located Siem Reap will be your home base, as you travel to the vast temple complex of Angkor Wat, and surrounding monuments – from Ta Prohm, a temple enveloped in huge tree roots; to Bayon, decorated with huge carved smiling faces. Before you leave the country, take time to visit the Landmine Museum and learn about the horrifying history of the Khmer Rouge.
Dive back into the ancient world in Laos, and the town of Luang Prabang. Tour the most spectacular of over 30 Buddhist temples, see shrines decorated in gold, covered in intricate carvings and inhabited by orange-clad monks, and get your thrills on a zip line through the jungle and a hike to stunning waterfalls.
Leave the roads behind and take the scenic route to Thailand on a boat cruise along the Mekong River. Start from the top in Chiang Rai Province, where we’ll trek into the surrounding hills to see tribal villages. Further south, you’ll discover the island of Ko Lanta. Spectacular white sand beaches stretch along the west sunset coast. Students will spend the days having class on the sand and snorkelling in the clear blue waters before heading back inland to the breathtaking Ayutthaya, where the ruins of the old city form an archaeological site that contains palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues, the perfect place to bid farewell to an awesome term two in Asia.
Flight details will be made available at a later date.
