Latrobe University Melbourne, Australia

Each year students from Latrobe University Melbourne, Australia come to learn about Cambodian culture and meet with Cambodian University students.

This year there were two groups 21 in total, staying in Cambodia from late November to mid-December. Choice Cambodia had the pleasure of providing in country program assistants to provide some local knowledge, appreciation of humanitarian needs and a sample of the local cuisine.

It was a real pleasure, both Group 1 & 2 were keen to learn and experience the local culture. I am sure in the future many will return, pictured below are Group 1 on the walking tour and Group 2 dining out in traditional Khmer style.
