Cambodia remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world as a result of decades of conflict, including a civil war, the brutal Khmer Rouge regime and genocide, American bombings, and Vietnamese occupation. This tour (available only from Mondays to Fridays only) is great outing for the family and strives to educate visitors the history of conflict in Cambodia, the impact of landmines on local communities, and the opportunity to understand the demining efforts of the various non-government organizations.
What to Expect
We’ll pick you up from your hotel in Siem Reap at 745 am and head to Norwegian People’s Aid visitor center and to experience first-hand how the professionals in mine and explosive detection train dogs to protect lives by supporting landmine and unexploded bomb clearance across Cambodia. Our next stop will be the Apopo Visitor Center where you will get a guided tour led by a mine action professional with real-life experience of humanitarian demining. Take the opportunity to learn more about landmines through various video presentations and see a HeroRat in action. Following lunch, you will travel through beautiful countryside villages, rice paddies and have the opportunity to take breathtaking photographs of locals working their fields before reaching the Cambodia Landmine Museum. The visit offers tourists and Cambodians the chance to see (safe) landmines up close, understand how they work, and what they can do to help rid Cambodia and the world of their continuing threat. We’ll then drive back to the city center (approximately 30 minutes) and drop you off at your hotel.
