Episode Summary

EDIT
Cambodia
AIRED:
Cambodia is a land of lush beauty and ancient mystery. Together with Laos and Vietnam it formed what was historically known as Indochina. While the country is still recovering from the effects of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, in recent years it has become an increasingly popular tourist destination. Globe Trekker Ian Wright begins his journey to Cambodia by celebrating Buddha's Day at Phnom Da, the country's oldest temple. From Phnom Da, he travels to Kampot at the base of the Elephant Mountains and explores the extraordinary Bokor Hill Station built by the French in 1912. Then, Ian catches the slow train to Sihanoukville and sets off for the pristine beaches of Koh Rong. From Koh Rong the journey takes him to the capital, Phnom Penh, where he explores the central market and sits in on a rehearsal of traditional Cambodian dance. A short flight to Senmonorom in Cambodia's northern Mondulkiri Province brings Ian to the celebration of a traditional hill tribe wedding. The final leg of the journey takes Ian to Lake Tonle Sap and on to Siem Reap. His visit to Cambodia ends exploring the ruins of the awe inspiring temple complex at Angkor. Along the way.... * Sample a bowl of traditional bat soup * Help the Mines Advisory Group clear unexploded mines outside of Phnom Penh * Visit one of the Khmer Rouge's notorious killing fields * Take a bicycle tour of Angkor's famous temples, Ta Prohm, the Bayon and Angkor Watmoreless
