The program is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, adjacent to the temples of Angkor, Phnom Kulen National Park, and the Tonle Sap Lake. The SFS Center for Mekong Studies is a private compound on a small side street, just 10 minutes by tuk tuk from downtown Siem Reap. The Center’s amenities include a large, two-story dormitory with shared bedrooms and bathrooms, wireless internet, a spacious common area with a loft, an open-air dining room, an in-ground swimming pool, a garden, and a yard that surrounds the Center for sports, fitness, or relaxing. Nearby attractions include Siem Reap’s day and night markets, and the famed Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounding Siem Reap are silk farms and rice paddies, as well as stilted fishing villages and wildlife sanctuaries on the Tonle Sap Lake. Students will stay at various accommodations during trips through the Mekong Basin including visits to Phnom Penh, Kratie, the coast of Cambodia, and Vietnam.
