    Overview

    Delve into a region rich in history, culture and beauty, as you explore some of Asia’s most famous locales and make an enormous impact on the communities you vist in this summer service program in Vietnam & Cambodia. Find out more!

    We begin our program in Los Angeles and board our flight to Phnom Penh, where we jump right into our adventure with an introduction to Cambodian culture. Once the “Pearl of Asia,” Phnom Penh is a city that balances the past and the present. No visit would be complete without taking in the relics of the Khmer Rouge era and promenading along the mighty Mekong River.

    Project Clean Water & Angkor Wat

    Traveling into Cambodia’s countryside, we make our way to our first service-learning section. For the next several days we lend our hands with constructing much-needed infrastructure for the clean water project taking place. We use cement to mold bio-sand water filters, then travel to local communities to install the filters. Having fully immersed ourselves in Cambodian culture through our village stay, we then continue on to Siem Reap, where we experience a breathtaking view of Angkor Wat at sunrise.

    Sailing in Ha Long Bay & Final Days in Hanoi

    Bidding our Cambodian friends farewell, we cross into Vietnam, where we embark on a two night excursion on a traditional junk in Halong Bay, where more than 3000 islands jut out from the emerald waters. Hitting the water for some kayaking and exploring untouched islands, we spend our nights on deck of the junk and camping on our own private island. Soaking up our last few days together as a group, we relish the breathtaking views around us. Leaving Cat Ba Island and Halong Bay behind, we head to the bustling, lively city of Hanoi, where we explore the Old Quarter, sample the traditional Pho and bring our Southeast Asia adventure to a close with a Final Feast under the stars and depart eager to share the memories we’ve made over the last 18 days.

      this trip made me the happiest ive ever been. The leaders were incredible and by the end of the trip we all became a real family. I'm going to keep in touch with the friends i've made here for the rest of my life. I have absolutely no complaints about ARCC, their organization and trips are incredible and well planned. If there is any company to choose for a service trip, I would always choose ARCC. I learned so much about myself and about the world and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world:)
