STUDY ABROAD IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
About Term Two
Explore the bustling cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, be awed by temples in Cambodia and Thailand, trek through mountain scenery, and take a riverboat cruise in Laos. During Term Two, you’ll experience fascinating cultures, ancient ceremonies, astounding architecture, and modern city life.
The journey begins in Hanoi, a city bursting with arts, culture, museums, shopping, and theatre. Board a two-day overnight boat cruise to Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to islands, caves, beaches, and wildlife. Venture south to Vietnam’s capital and largest metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City, renowned for its famous night-markets and delicious street food – the perfect place to fill up before heading into the jungles of Cambodia.
The centrally-located Siem Reap will be your home base in Cambodia, 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. Take time to visit the Landmine Museum to learn about the Khmer Rouge’s horrifying history.
Dive back into the ancient world in Laos, and the town of Luang Prabang. Tour the most spectacular 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.
Take the scenic route to Thailand on a boat cruise along the Mekong River. Start from the top in Chiang Rai Province, and trek into the surrounding hills to see tribal villages. Further south, discover the island of Ko Lanta’s white-sand beaches along the sunset coast. Spend your days having class on the sand and snorkelling before heading back inland to Ayutthaya, an archaeological site containing palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues, the perfect place to bid farewell to an awesome term two in Asia.
